HECM Originators May 2014

HECM endorsements rose 7.8% in May, but the big winners were retail lenders with volume up 12.2% compared to just a 2% rise for broker/wholesale volume. Retail is at 59% of industry volume, just short of the 61% reached in September and December last year.

  • American Advisors Group continues to impress with a new high of 1,481 loans, up 17.7% from April
  • RMS/Security One bounced back with a 24.8% rise to 392 loans and fourth place
  • Proficio rose 23.3% to recover some of the losses from the past three months
