Today we speak with NAMB’s incoming president, Fred Kreger about subprime, compliance and the CFPB.  Tune in and enjoy!



  • You’d do all of us a favor if you found a new word than sub-prime to describe “does not meet Fannie-Freddie standards.” Sub-prime has so much emotion attached to it that it is not useful in describing this segment of the market.

    Assuming every originator is a “good guy,” there is a qualitative difference between two loans that are identical except that one is 90% LTV and the other is 40% LTV. The latter loan is risk-free and could arguably be done at a prime rate regardless of other underwriting criteria. I am actually astonished that someone on Wall Street hasn’t started a fund to buy loans <50% LTV with no pricing hits.

    Why hasn't this happened……yet?
