HECM Lenders – October 2020

HECM endorsements dropped -5.1% in October, ending the month with 3,737 loans.

Geographically, the industry had its two largest regions post declines while half of the remaining regions showed mostly small gains.

  • New York/New Jersey was the notable exception, notching a strong 27.8% jump in volume to 193 loans
  • Rocky Mountain rose 1.5% to 461 loans
  • Southwest and Mid-Atlantic each gained less than 1% on the month

Lenders had a bit less to cheer about, with just 2 of the top 9 posting gains:

  • Mutual of Omaha Mortgage increased 7.7% to finish with 239 loans
  • RMF was just behind that growth rate, rising 7.5% to 331 loans
