Fannie Building In-House Unit to Value MSRs

Fannie Mae is working on building an in-house unit to value mortgage servicing rights, according to industry officials who’ve been briefed on the GSE’s plans. However, it’s unclear at this point how far along Fannie is. A spokesman for the company declined to comment to Inside The GSEs about the matter. Officials familiar with the effort, including one former GSE executive, said Fannie is looking to value MSRs for two main reasons: to better judge counter-party risk on mortgage bankers that sell residential loans to the company, and perhaps to better value the asset because it may have plans to buy or finance servicing rights in the future.

What will Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s new 97 LTV programs mean for your business?

It will give our business a big boost as there is a lot of pent up demand for the product.
It will have only a minor impact on our overall business as we already are doing high LTV business through FHA and some of our high LTV FHA business is likely to shift to Fannie and Freddie.
It won’t have any impact on our business as we plan to steer clear of all high LTV business – particularly in the GSE market.
