Buyers hoping to get their hands on some Ginnie Mae mortgage servicing rights have that opportunity, according to Interactive Mortgage Advisors, which announced Friday that it is acting as the exclusive broker for the sale of a $3 billion bulk Ginnie Mae mortgage servicing rights portfolio.
Buyers looking to score some Ginnie Mae servicing are in luck. Interactive Mortgage Advisors announced the sale of a $4 billion Ginnie Mae bulk portfolio of residential mortgage servicing rights. And according to Thomas Piercy, managing member of Interactive Mortgage Advisors, the portfolio is “most likely the best Ginnie Mae deal offered this year.”
Finishing up the year, Interactive Mortgage Advisors’ latest bulk residential mortgage servicing rights offering features an extremely low interest rate and quality MSRs from an independent mortgage bank.
