To Protect Market Share and Better Serve Borrowers, Offer a Wider Range of Loan Products

Are Erroneous Notions about HECM Document Requirements Standing Between You and Lifetime Borrowers?

Many mortgage lenders recognize that the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) could serve their baby boomer borrowers well, yet hesitate to add the product to their lending portfolios due to concerns that HECM mortgages are either too risky or too different to warrant the cost of adoption. This misconception that HECM loans are risky arises from old information that predates the regulatory reforms that have transformed the program. The belief that HECM lending documents are more complicated or time-consuming to process than traditional mortgage documents is simply untrue. Read More.
