Redwood Inks Three-Year Jumbo Purchase Agreement with FHLBs

Redwood Trust late this week unveiled a three-year agreement with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago whereby the real estate investment trust will purchase residential “high balance” loans from any member of the entire FHLBank system. The loans will be originated by members of the FHLBank system. Those lenders will then sell the mortgages to the Chicago FHLBank as part of the Mortgage Partnership Finance Program, which will then upstream the product to Redwood. The loans will have balances above the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac loan limit of $625,500.
