Reverse Mortgage Rates – July 8, 2008

This week, because of the floor used in finding Principal Limit Factors (PLF’s), all Treasury-based HECM’s with a margin of +156 or less will give the same maximum PLF’s as will all LIBOR-based HECM’s with margins of +88 or less. Using these margins, the initial note rate on a LIBOR HECM will be 57 bp less than that on a Treasury HECM. LIBOR HECM should have some traction!

Our prediction last Monday was correct. A monthly-adjusting Treasury HECM+150 will pay the average HECM borrower $2,750 more this week. That’s up $5,500 over the last two weeks.
