A Florida reverse mortgage can help seniors who would like to stay in their home the financial security and piece of mind. In order to qualify for a reverse mortgage, a homeowner must be at least 62 years or older, live in their home, have enough equity in their home and the home be a qualified property type.…………

The only thing I can think of that might be the problem is if you're located in a condominium community and the complex is not approved for FHA financing, the HECM reverse mortgage is insured by FHA so without that approval you cannot get a reverse mortgage. I would need more specifics regarding your community, what type of property, etc. to answer the question in further detail. Also, if you do live in a condo you can check this website which is on so it's a legit help site and input your condo's information and see if it's approved. good luck.
