In 2021 the median home value in Detroit was $63,449. The current maximum lending limit for FHA-insured reverse mortgages in 2022 is $1,089,300 which means nearly all homes in Detroit and in the surrounding area should see most if not all of their full home value considered in the calculation of the potential maximum reverse mortgage loan benefit.

Reverse mortgages calculate the maximum available loan benefit (before fees, costs, and lien payoffs) for qualified borrowers based on the home’s appraised value, the age of the youngest borrower, or named non-borrowing spouse, and the current/starting effective interest rate.

The settlement of the eastern seaboard and Great Lakes regions was in large part spurred by the fur trade. Detroit was first founded in 1701 by French colonists as the New France fur trading post. Today it’s the largest city in the state of Michigan. The city’s population grew during the 19th century and then boomed with the advent of the early American auto industry and mass immigration. Detroit was synonymous with the strength of industrialism and mass manufacturing throughout most of the 20th century.

Music enthusiasts can explore the roots of Motor City or Motown’s R&B and soul sounds at the Motown Museum- home to the recording studio of musical stardom including Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, The Supremes, and the Jackson Five. Other notable landmarks include Old Saint Mary’s Church, Ford Field, and the Detroit RiverFront. Some of the nation’s largest corporations call Detroit home including Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Quicken Loans, and Little Caesar Enterprises.
