Fannie: Single Point of Contact Lessens Foreclosure Risks. Offering a single point of contact who is plugged into the case of a distressed borrower greatly lessens the chance of that mortgage reaching foreclosure, according to a new study from Fannie Mae. During a press call with reporters last week, Leslie Peeler of Fannie’s National Servicing Organization noted that the research conducted by the GSE involving five large – but unnamed – mortgage servicers using the SPOC model concluded that homeowners dealing with the same individual were twice as likely to receive and accept a modification.

With rates higher this year, there has been talk of lenders liberalizing their underwriting standards in an effort to increase volume and make up for lower refis.

Do you think your shop will loosen standards over the coming three months?

Yes, but not by much.
Yes, by a lot.
Yes and, heck, we may even do non-QM lending.
No, not at all.
No and we may even tighten credit.
