first_img Three special servicers—Nationstar, Ocwen, and Walter Investment Corp.—released their fourth-quarter and year-end earnings reports with revenue increases and increasingly active originations sectors.Nationstar reported net loss of $51 million in the fourth quarter and an income of $217 million for the full year in 2013, up 6 percent from the previous year’s net income. Nationstar is the sixth-largest servicer and the 12th-largest mortgage loan originator, according to the company’s earnings report.Over the year, Nationstar increased its unpaid principal balance by 90 percent with $250 billion in unpaid principal balance added to its portfolio. At the same time, Nationstar upped its loan origination activity by 200 percent. Nationstar originated about 62,000 refinance loans through the federal Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP).”Although origination margins came under pressure in the fourth quarter, our current originations are profitable and we are confident this business will continue to be profitable in 2014 with its more focused footprint,” said David Hisey, CFO at Nationstar.Ocwen reported $105 million in income in the fourth quarter and $294 million for the year. Ocwen also reported $556 million in revenue in the fourth quarter, up 135 percent from the previous quarter, and $2 billion in revenue for the year, up 141 percent from the previous year.Ocwen completed nearly 30,000 loan modifications, about 54 percent of which included principal reduction in the fourth quarter. Ocwen’s servicing portfolio has a 14.5 percent delinquency rate as of year-end, down slightly from 14.6 percent in the third quarter. Prepayments are on the decline at Ocwen, falling to about 13 percent in the fourth quarter, and the company expects the trend to continue.Having set a goal to purchase “at least the prior quarter’s earnings in the three months following its earnings announcements,” Ocwen repurchased 1.13 million shares of its common stock for about $60 million in the fourth quarter.”Our solid financial performance enabled us to initiate a stock repurchase program in the fourth quarter while maintaining the strongest capital ratios among our peers,” said Bill Erbey, chairman of Ocwen.Erbey went on to address its recently-halted deal with Wells Fargo to purchase servicing rights from the large bank: “We are working cooperatively with the New York Department of Financial Services to address its concerns that led to an indefinite hold on our transaction with Wells Fargo.”Compared to a net loss in income last year, Walter Investment Management Corp., reported a net income of $253.5 million for 2013. The company’s fourth-quarter income totaled $9.8 million.Walter’s total revenue for the fourth quarter was $402.8 million. Servicing contributed $162.9 million in the fourth quarter; originations contributed $135.8 million; and reverse mortgages brought in $39.1 million over the quarter. The company originated more than 63,000 HARP loans in 2013.”During 2013 Walter Investment executed against its strategic plan, profitably growing its Servicing business, launching its Originations platform to opportunistically harvest the HARP opportunity and extending its core competencies to the reverse mortgage market,” said Mark J. O’Brien, Walter Investment’s Chairman and CEO. “We more than doubled the serviced book of business to over $200 billion of UPB.”Walter Investment was also the top issuer of home equity conversion mortgages last year, according to the company’s earnings release.While the three special servicers were active contributors to HARP in the fourth quarter, this sector is expected to decline in the near-term.”HARP refinances continue to be the major driver of earnings in our lending business,” said Ron Faris, president and CEO of Ocwen. “However, we expect this volume will begin to decline over the next few months as the number of HARP-eligible loans decreases.”While special servicers continue to profit by working through delinquencies resulting from the financial crisis and temporary government programs such as HARP, there is some uncertainty as to their future.At least one group of analysts suggests special servicers might “become the next generation of non-prime originators,” according to a report earlier this year from Moody’s.  Print This Post HARP Nationstar Ocwen origination Servicing Walter Investment 2014-03-03 Krista Franks Brock Previous: Virginia Bank Closed, Fourth Collapse of 2014 Next: Mortgage Markets Today: Whole Loan Trading Trends About Author: Krista Franks Brock Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: HARP Nationstar Ocwen origination Servicing Walter Investment The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img Special Servicers Benefit from HARP; Future Uncertain in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago March 3, 2014 757 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Special Servicers Benefit from HARP; Future Uncertain Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

The mortgage market could have taken twice the default risk during the first three quarters of 2014 and remained well within the high standards set from 2001 to 2003, according to data released by the Urban Institute on Monday.An analysis of the Housing Finance Policy Center’s Credit Availability Index (HCAI) by Wei Li and Laurie Goodman of the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center revealed that there was no change in the market’s post-crisis overcorrection during the first three quarters of 2014. Rather, the study showed a reluctance on the part of lenders to accept any real borrower risk and a continued absence of loans with risky terms, according to the study.The HCAI was first introduced by the Housing Finance Policy Center in December to measure the amount of default risk the mortgage market takes on at origination for owner-occupied purchase loans and how much of the risk is due to either loan type or credit risk on the part of the borrower. Default risk is defined as the likelihood that a mortgage loan will go 90 days or more delinquent, with the understanding that not all loans that go 90 days delinquent will end up in foreclosure or liquidation.The latest HCAI analysis of the first three quarters of 2014 showed that 5 percent of all mortgages originated during that period were likely to default under conditions considered over all economic scenarios, while 6.4 percent of loans originated between 2010 and 2013 were likely to default when placed under the same economic conditions. The lower probability for default for loans originated in 2014 compared to those originated from 2010 to 2013 indicates a tighter credit box in 2014 compared to the three years prior.Compared with loans originated during 2001 and 2003, which was a time of balanced credit access and default risk, mortgage loans had a default probability of 12.4 percent under similar economic conditions that measured default probability for loans originated in 2014 and 2010 to 2013. When considering just borrower risk, the default likelihood for loans originated to 2001 to 2003 fell to 9.1 percent, while 3.4 percent of the default risk for loans during that time was attributable to risky products.Li and Goodman concluded that due to the complete absence of risky products in today’s mortgage market, doubling the default risk on loans originated in 2014 (5 percent) would still put risk well within the cautious 2001 to 2003 standards.

In addition, the Committee says it is tougher for creditworthy Americans to buy a home than it was prior to Dodd-Frank; indeed, they estimate that one in five borrowers who purchased a home with a mortgage in 2010 would not qualify under Dodd-Frank’s current underwriting rules.As more evidence that the effects of Dodd-Frank have been more harmful than helpful to businesses on Main Street, the Committee presented two recently-published reports this week: One from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and a non-partisan study from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).The Dallas Fed report concluded that many community financial institutions may be “too small to succeed” in the era of the “regulatory onslaught” brought on by Dodd-Frank. The report pointed out that community banks, despite seeing a decline in market share down to about 19 percent of $15.9 trillion in total assets, still hold about 55 percent of small business loans and 75 percent of agricultural loans.“Notwithstanding the benefits community banks bring to the economy, practically no new banks have entered the market since 2008,” the Dallas Fed stated in the report.The report also spoke of the increasing compliance burden for banks, saying that “the playing field is becoming more uneven.”“Banks of all sizes and complexities have to hire compliance personnel to properly align their institutions with these new regulations,” the Dallas Fed stated. “But for smaller institutions, the compliance burden is likely greater.”The nonpartisan GAO’s report also indicated an “increased compliance burden” to community banks and credit unions, and that burden has “begun to adversely affect some lending activities,” such as mortgage lending to customers who would not typically be served by the larger banks. Not only that, but the GAO stated that “The full impact of the Dodd-Frank Act remains uncertain because many of its rules have yet to be implemented and insufficient time has passed to evaluate others.”The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) issued a statement on the GAO’s report, saying “It is our hope that Congress will thoroughly investigate the costs of regulatory burden as the full picture unfolds and more regulatory requirements become effective.”The House Financial Services Committee stated in its release that it is working to try to reverse the adverse effects of Dodd-Frank on Main Street.“In 2015, 28 Committee bills were signed into law, including six dealing with Dodd-Frank,” the Committee reported. “In 2016, we’ll be working to present proposals laying out a better vision for financial reform—bold ideas that promote more opportunities for low and moderate-income Americans, protect taxpayers from future Wall Street bailouts, and empower families and individuals to achieve financial independence.”Click here to view the full GAO report.Click here to view the full Dallas Fed report.

She is survived by her children and grandchildren.“Laurie dedicated her life to the service of both consumers and lenders in the residential mortgage market. Her expertise and passion had a profound impact on our industry and our ability to meet the challenges posed by the worse financial crisis in generations. Most importantly it was her desire to find reasonable balance among the various interests that was so beneficial, particularly in her role at CFPB. However, it is Laurie’s endearing smile and friendship I will miss the most,” said Ray Barbone EVP of Mortgage Services at BankUnited.Laurie had served at the CFPB for more than four years and is a nationally recognized authority on default management and foreclosure prevention. She was previously Director of Policy, Office of Homeownership Preservation at the U.S. Department of the Treasury and Acting Director of Single Family Asset Management at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Laurie was one of the original architects of the administration’s mortgage relief and foreclosure prevention programs.“I am deeply saddened by the news of Laurie’s passing,” said Five Star Institute President & CEO Ed Delgado. “She was a gifted and talented professional, dedicated to public service. But more importantly she was a loving mother and grandmother. I am proud that we shared a special friendship. She will be missed.”Caroline Reaves, CEO at MCS also offered prayers for Laurie’s loved ones, saying, “Although Laurie is well-known for her tireless dedication to our industry, I had the privilege of knowing her as an amazing friend who shared many personal moments with my family. We shared many hours of laughter as well as tears. I will miss her terribly.”In 2011 The Five Star Institute honored Laurie with their Lifetime Achievement Award. To mark the occasion, her colleague Phyllis Caldwell, then Chief of the Homeownership Preservation Office at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, said of Maggiano:”Laurie has worked to make sure that policies translate into actions that help homeowners, while laying the foundation for sustainable change on how delinquent loans are managed. She is a tireless champion for homeowners across our country.”To view Laurie’s Lifetime Achievement video, click here.
