RH Reward aligns the interests of mortgage risk owners - including Government agencies and local municipalities - with the homeowner in ways that produce tangible benefits for both.
(PRWEB) January 30, 2012
With more than two full years of performance results available, Loan Value Group, LLC (LVG) today announced that its Responsible Homeowner Reward® (RH Reward®) program, which provides cash awards to eligible homeowners who remain current on their mortgages, has reduced delinquency rates on 1st lien mortgages by 54%. Delinquency rates on 2nd lien mortgages – a source of even greater concern for banks – were reduced by nearly 24% over the same period.
RH Reward, launched in January 2010, is currently being used by major lenders, servicers, insurers and mortgage investors, and at present, affects mortgages with an aggregate balance of nearly $3 billion.
“RH Reward aligns the interests of mortgage risk owners - including Government agencies and local municipalities - with the homeowner in ways that produce tangible benefits for both,” said Frank Pallotta, Managing Partner of Loan Value Group. “In addition to reducing delinquency rates on 1st and 2nd lien mortgages however, RH Reward programs are being used to increase refinancing activity, accelerate loss mitigation efforts and launch new origination programs. Finally, risk owners are benefiting from enhanced contact information, behavioral insight and borrower connectivity.”
This is how the RH Reward Program works:
1. The homeowner is selected by their financial institution, enrolled in the RH Reward Program and granted an initial RH Reward amount.
2. The homeowner agrees to make full and timely mortgage payments in accordance with their mortgage note to keep their RH Reward status active.
3. For a period of time following enrollment, the RH Reward account will grow at a predetermined rate.
4. Once a milestone is met – for example, by selling the home, refinancing the property, or by paying off the mortgage – the homeowner is paid the entire RH Reward amount.
