Jumbo Prepayment Speeds Likely to Slow

With the Federal Reserve expected to raise its benchmark overnight lending rate this year, interest rates on new mortgages are also projected to go up.

Within the first 12 months of origination, prepayment rates on post-crisis jumbos included in non-agency mortgage-backed securities have ...

Trump Administration Scuttles 25 bps Annual Premium Reduction

The Trump administration has officially set aside the 25 basis point cut in FHA annual premiums in a new mortgagee letter issued by the Department of Housing and Urban Development hours after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
