Mortgage Buybacks 2011 Webinar




An Inside Mortgage Finance Webinar Held
Thursday, February 24, 2011

2010 was the year of the mortgage buyback as actual repurchases – not just requests – climbed to record-high levels. Repurchases involving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages alone are expected to have topped $13 billion in 2010 while additional buybacks could push the industry’s total bill above $40 billion for all of last year.

The buyback outlook for 2011 remains hazy at best as the mortgage industry continues not only to deal with large GSE requests but also growing repurchase demands from non-agency loans as well as performing GSE loans.

Find out what’s in store for the mortgage market when it comes to buybacks this year at a must-attend webinar from Inside Mortgage Finance – Mortgage Buybacks 2011: Best Strategies and Practices on February 24, at 2:00 pm ET. Hear about the latest buyback trends and what's triggering repurchase requests from the GSEs on performing loans. Learn what strategies you can employ to minimize your firm's buyback exposure.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
