Fannie, Freddie MBS Business Activity Increases in April

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in April reversed more than a year-long streak of declines with monthly increases in the volume of single-family mortgages securitized by the two GSEs, according to a new Inside The GSEs analysis. Fannie and Freddie issued $45.4 billion in single-family mortgage-backed securities in April, a 20.6 percent increase from March. However, April’s MBS issuance was down 63.0 percent from the same period a year ago. In April, GSE refi securitizations rose to $21.2 billion, a 9.5 percent increase since March, making for a refi share of 46.7 percent. On a year-to-date basis, GSE refi securitizations fell 76.7 percent at the end of April.

Poll

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.
