HECM Endorsement Analytics – December 2021

December finished with a record monthly HECM endorsement count for 2021 of 5,218 loans, bringing the total annual endorsement count to 53,020 units, exceeding by 18.7% the 44,661 HECMs endorsed in 2020. AAG, RMF and FAR accounted for 52.3% of all HECMs endorsed in 2021, slightly higher than the 50.7% seen in 2020. Our report can be found here: NV Endorsement 2021_12.

HUD’s November Endorsement Snapshot Report was just released on its website. “HECM for Refinance” remains at more than 50% of all HECMs endorsed in the month.

New View Advisors continues to offer its Who Buys What From Whom (WBWFW) report as part of our endorsement report subscription. The report compiles publicly available Ginnie Mae data to show which HMBS issuers buy HECMs from which lenders.

The WBWFW report includes:

–Top Originators – a ranking by original HECM UPB of all lenders over the last twelve months
–WBWFW – an alphabetical cross-reference between every lender and the HMBS issuer that securitizes its loans
–Top 100 Trends – a breakdown of loan sales by month, by Top-100 lender, by HMBS issuer.

Edited samples from this month’s WBWFW report are at the end of our endorsement writeup. These reports together provide accurate insight for sales and marketing teams to learn just who’s buying what from whom. The dataset is more complete and timely than what endorsement analysis alone can show.
