Yesterday Home Point Capital introduced a second quarter 2022 web lack of $(44.4) million. Production was down 63 p.c from 2021’s 2nd quarter, and down 27 p.c from the first quarter. The numbers definitely mirror a tricky atmosphere for many wholesalers. One business vet wrote this opinion, “Home Point’s huge mistake was ramping up capability and overhead in early 2021 in pursuit of higher market share. In order to perform that, it lowered margins after which discovered itself caught with an excessive amount of price construction in a shrinking market.

“The real killer is pricing and margins, as is the case with most wholesalers. Since then Home Point has done a good job of reducing costs. But now HMPT is looking at a lower volume, higher margin model. Pricing is not as aggressive, and it is probably losing market share right now. I think Home Point will have costs in line by the end of Q-3-22 or sometime in Q-4-22. Then, if with less aggressive pricing, its margins widen out a bit, HMPT will be at breakeven or be profitable by year end, 2022. My prediction. UWM, for example, had net GOS over twice what HMPT had, but is still managing to pressure the other players in wholesale. It is brutal in that entire channel.”
