This week, because of the floor used in finding Principal Limit Factors (PLF’s), all Treasury-based HECM’s with a margin of +147 or less will give the same maximum PLF’s as will all LIBOR-based HECM’s with margins of +76 or less. Using these margins, the initial note rate on a LIBOR HECM will be 70 bp less than that on a Treasury HECM. LIBOR HECM should have some traction!
A monthly-adjusting Treasury HECM+150 will pay the average HECM borrower $2,750 more this. And we bet this will rise another $2,750 next week.
