  • Mortgage caclulator way off

    Asked by someone from Beaumont, CA on 10/4/2018

    I ran the Reverse Mortgage Calculator and the area estimate is way off. You use Zillow and they were closest to 200,00 but the Zillow area map shoes $370,000 to $470,000.
    So it said not eligible for Loan.
    I can send a screen shot of the calculator and of Zillow, but tried to add here and wont take it.

  • Don't worry at all as the zillow value won't matter when you get to the point of actually applying for the loan. An FHA appraisal from a licensed appraisal will come to your house and get a very accurate value of your home--if it's worth 500K then the appraisal will come close to 500K!
