Notes From the Mortgage Desk: Extended and Expanded MPF Traditional Pricing Special


September 15, 2022

Mortgage Market Recap

Since our last Notes From the Mortgage Desk in May, the mortgage markets have continued to experience high volatility. Mortgage rates are up dramatically due to inflationary pressures and Fed actions, stifling home affordability for many buyers.

MPF® Price Specials - MPF Traditional Product

To alleviate some of the overall market pressure, we are extending our targeted pricing special announced in May and improving prices across all MPF Traditional products! The Mortgage Partnership Finance® (MPF) price specials could lead to a "bump" in price in certain note rates.

Pricing Special Details:

  • Pricing specials start today and are expected to end on or before December 31, 2022
  • Improved pricing across all MPF Traditional products!
  • Extended: Additional price benefit for 30-year conforming loans that meets the following criteria:
