HECM endorsements fell for a second consecutive month in October and once again, wholesale declined faster than retail, dropping -8.6% compared to -6.3%, respectively. As always, there were standouts even in a down month and this month it was lenders bouncing back from a tough September:
- Cherry Creek set a brisk pace, rising 34.8% to 62 loans
- Reverse Mortgage Funding rose 10.2% to 271 loans
- Live Well just missed out on a double digit recovery, rising 9.8% to 190 loans
