Lenders Rally Through March's Reverse Mortgage Decline

Lenders Rally Through March's Reverse Mortgage Decline

May 20, 2020
The word resiliency spelled in scrabble letters.
The latest Home Equity Conversion Mortgage report from Reverse Market Insight revealed that HECM endorsements fell by 14.1% in March 2020. However, some lenders remained resilient through the decline, according to Reverse Mortgage Daily.
According to RMD, lenders like HighTechLending and Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation saw reverse endorsements increase 38.7% and 31.3% respectively. In addition, Finance of America Reverse reported its third 12-month high with an increase of 21.8% according to the RMI data. 
“Keeping it simple here, I’d say the two great stories here are Fairway and FAR both showing several consecutive months of growth in endorsements here,” said John Lunde, president of RMI, according to RMD.
He believes that positive growth for some of the top reverse lenders in the industry shows encouraging signs.
