The first quarter of 2023 was a tough one for United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM). While the mortgage industry as a whole showed signs of stability, UWM reported a financial loss largely attributed to the following three factors:

• Declining Origination Volumes: Origination volume for UWM dropped significantly throughout the quarter, indicating a weakened mortgage market.

• Fair Value of MSRs: The fair value of mortgage servicing rights declined drastically, causing further financial damage to UWM.

• New Accounting Rules: The implementation of new accounting rules added further strain to UWM’s financial situation.

UWM has stated that they will take corrective measures to stabilize their financial situation, and look to the future with optimism. Despite the first quarter losses, the company continues to maintain a strong belief in the long-term potential of the industry, and their position in the market. They are confident that their current situation and strategy will put them on a path to success in the coming quarters.
