Reverse Mortgage Endorsements Take A Plunge in February

Reverse mortgage endorsements took a plunge in February with a substantial 17.6% drop, according to recent reports. In January, originations were strong which caused some to wonder when the effects off the October 2 changes would kick in. That time looks to have finally come.

"...the bottom fell out in February with a total of just 5,195 loans, with 2,649 HECMs through the retail channel and 2,546 wholesale loans — a decline of 16.9% and 18.4%, respectively," according to Reverse Mortgage Daily.

There is still good news for originators, despite the near 18% drop. According to the RMD report, High Tech Lending had an 82.9% jump in loans for February.

Meanwhile, the 5,195 loans total was the third-highest volume over a period of one year, according to the report. It isn't exactly time to hit the panic button yet with reverse mortgage originations.
