Nationstar Reportedly Exploring Sale Prospects

Nationstar Mortgage (NYSE: NSM), a servicer of reverse mortgages through its Champion brand, is exploring a sale of the company, as re-reported by StreetInsider.com citing an original report by Bloomberg.

The company recently went through a major rebrand of its consumer-facing operations, which became known as Mr. Cooper earlier this year, and has long held a position as a reverse mortgage servicer. Nationstar’s majority owner, Fortress Investment Group (NYSE: FIG), is being acquired by SoftBank. Fortress, StreetInsider.com reported based on the information from Bloomberg, is working with advisers on a prospective sale of Nationstar, and is currently inviting bids from investors.

Nationstar plans to call for bids from potential buyers in November, the reports indicated, citing people familiar with the matter.

  • That is good news. Nationstar was not prepared to handle HECM servicing as anyone who has dealt with them in the past few months can corroborate. Their customer service is abysmal and forget trying to get a payoff out of them, as it will take weeks, five faxes, multiple calls and even emails and then you finally get it one day before it expires.

  • Good riddance. We need to get these terrible servicers out of the reverse mortgage business. Hopefully they land with someone that uses Celink to subservice.
