HECM Lenders – September 2017

October 2, 2017

HECM endorsements dropped -6.8% in September, finishing at 4,592 loans. With the rule changes going into effect today not expected to significantly affect endorsement volumes until December or even January, we’re also getting a clearer picture of where 2017 is likely to end up.

7 of the 10 regions nationwide dropped, with all 3 of the gainers leaning toward the smaller volume end:

  • Great Plains is the smallest region but had the biggest gain, rising 13.6% to 100 loans
  • Rocky Mountain ranks #4 with 430 loans, an increase of 0.9%
  • Northwest/Alaska ranks #7 at 326 loans, up 1 loan (0.3%) from August

Lenders saw an even more dour performance, with just 1 of the top 9 gaining on the month:

  • Live Well rose 37.6% to 216 loans, their highest monthly total in over 12 months
  • The top 10 lenders collectively dropped -8.6%
