MSR Market Monthly Update – July 2024

Click to read the most recent MSR Market Update! – Mortgage rates and some rate indices have experienced a healthy recovery from their lows recorded at the end of February, closing the month of April with robust gains over their end of the year levels. Mortgage rates managed to end the month of April with an increase of about fifty-two (52) basis points, while float income rates have increased by an average of thirty (30) basis points since the end of March. MSR portfolio holders should expect a moderate value recovery in the range of two to six (2-6) basis points from the end of March. However, those increases will vary depending on portfolio vintages and other portfolio characteristics such as Agency and GNMA mix. The downrate risk and its potential impact on MSR values will persist as we navigate through 2024.
