While the increase through June was minimal, seven of the 10 regions tracked in the report posted volume growth for reverse mortgage endorsements.

As for the top-ranked lenders for the trailing 12 months, consolidating volume for the merger of Security One Lending with RMS  resulted in a new number one lender for RMI’s report, as the company’s 264 endorsements in June added to a twelve month total of 6,662.

Liberty Home Equity Solutions followed in at a close second, endorsing 296 loans in June for a twelve-month total of 6,417.

  • The increase was just 20 endorsements over June 2012 or less than 1 endorsement per state nationally for all lenders. We are heading into a period where few Standard fixed rate HECMs await endorsement and will definitely see a significant downturn in endorsement numbers before November.

  • hecm fixed rate loans were required to close by July 1, 2013…..It will take 60 days to “endorse” the last of the Fixed Rate Standard Lump Sum pipeline.
