Servicing Strategies: Weighing Your MSR Options

An Inside Mortgage Finance Webinar

Recorded March 26, 2014

Lenders are discovering hidden gold in their mortgage servicing rights. The market to buy these rights has been on the upswing, and valuations have shot up as a result, with the fair value of MSRs increasing more than 30 percent between 3Q12 and 3Q13. For some lenders, this found money is helping them ride out the slowdown in originations.

But even with the run up in values, many lenders are choosing to hold onto their servicing, some because it maintains relationships with customers who have additional valuable banking and lending needs, others to avoid the regulatory and oversight headaches associated with servicing transfers. Other lenders are taking a middle path, selling the asset but continuing to work the loans as subservicer.

Explore the paths available to you—and the pros and cons of each—with IMF’s “Servicing Strategies: Weighing Your MSR Options” webinar recorded on March 26.
