April brought the obligatory drop in endorsements after the big month in March, with volume falling 6% to 5,034 units. That is still good enough for the 2nd highest volume month in the last 12 months, and 4th highest in the past 2 years.

  • Wholesale/broker volume fell 3.6% to 2,511 loans
  • Retail/direct volume fell further, down 8.2% to 2,523

As would be expected in a down month, most of the top 10 institutions had lower volume, with a couple of exceptions:

  • RMS/S1L volume spiked more than 300% to 276 units(page 2)
  • Reverse Mortgage Funding increased from 546 to 574 units
  • One Reverse inched up to 261 loans
