MetLife Grabs Top Wholesale Reverse Mortgage Lender Spot

image Reverse Market Insight reports that after last month’s 20% drop, wholesale volume picked up a bit in June, growing just north of 8% to 4,623 units, with trailing 12 month volume coming in at 60,448.

Below is a list of the top wholesale reverse mortgage lenders over the last 12 months.

  Lender Units Growth
1 Financial Freedom 14,291 -38.2%
2 JB Nutter 13,819 18.9%
3 Bank of America 8,343 -25.0%
4 MetLife 5,864 105.3%
5 World Alliance Financial 5,603 50.6%
6 Generation Mortgage 2,908 270.0%
7 Urban Financial 2,269 419.2%
8 Genworth Financial 1,922 193.3%
9 Sun West 1,798 NA
10 Wells Fargo 1,396 638.6%

What I find even more interesting is the wholesale numbers for the month of June.  MetLife took the #1 spot for the first time and we see Urban Financial/Reverseit enter the top 5.  Below is a list graph showing the top 5 wholesalers volume for June 2009.

  • ACn someone explain how these numbers are assembled? I'm unclear if B of A's numbers, for example, include their retail and wholesale originations. If it includes a retail origination does it count in their wholesale numbers?

  • The numbers in our Wholesale Leaders report do include both Retail and Wholesale production. The quick chart in the post refers exclusively to Wholesale production for the month of June for respective lenders.

  • If you are looking at the HUD endorsement reports you are looking at loans closed in the particular lenders name. So if you are a mini eagle and you are closing in your name (almost always), those loans do not count towards your sponsors numbers. Reports like Reverse Market Insight often break numbers into retail and wholesale.
