Industry Leader Update: Credit downgrade & HECM markets


[vimeo id=”27639744″ width=”601″ height=”338″]

The effect is anything but dire…in fact it’s had investors eyeing HMBS (HECM Mortgage Backed Securities) as a more attractive investment. It’s a short-term and modest gain for the secondary market of reverse mortgages in the wake of this historic change for our nation’s credit worthiness.
