My understanding is that a reverse mortgage is based upon the property value of your home. In many areas, those property values are falling.
My suggestion is that you visit your local savings bank or regular commercial bank and discuss your question with them.
The issue, of course, is whether you can comfortably repay the loan that you take out. These days, banks are more careful about determining how credit worthy is the applicant. And they adjust the interest rate accordingly.
In other words, the banks will increase the interest rate as the Credit Score of the applicant goes down.
