MountainView Brings $10 Billion MSR Portfolio to Market

 

Denver (March 30, 2015) – MountainView Servicing Group, a leading provider of residential mortgage servicing rights sales and valuation advisory services, today announces its advisory role for the sale of a Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae MSR portfolio with approximately $10 billion of unpaid principal balance. Bids for the portfolio are due by April 13.

Quality features of the portfolio include 100 percent fixed-rate and first lien product, a weighted average original FICO score of 763, a weighted average original loan-to-value ratio of 75 percent and a weighted average interest rate of 3.82 percent. The portfolio also has low delinquencies: 0.41 percent of the loans are 30 days late, 0.05 percent of the loans are 60 days late, and no loans are 90+ days late.

Top states for the portfolio are California (25.5 percent), Colorado (11.8 percent) and Washington (6.5 percent). The average loan size is $232,719 and the average loan age is 24 months.

“This portfolio has a weighted average coupon of 3.82 percent, while a lot of the servicing portfolios that have recently come to market have had weighted average coupons above 4 percent,” said Robert Wellerstein, managing director at MountainView Servicing Group. “And given the recent move down in rates, this portfolio gives buyers a rare opportunity to buy a large amount of discount and par rate servicing.”

The seller, a well-capitalized bank, prefers to retain servicing on the mortgages through a sale with a subservicing agreement but will consider a traditional sale.
