NAMFS Industry Pricing Initiative Update

To Mortgage Field Services Providers:

NAMFS is pleased to share two documents with our membership and the mortgage field services industry.  We encourage our members to share this information with their network.

The first document, Mortgage Field Services Pricing Discussion, is the basis for conversations with the Investors/Insurers of our industry that set guidelines and allowables.  The basis of this document came from the information members and non-members provided in response to the October 2021 NAMFS Survey.

The second document is an Industry Pricing Pledge.  NAMFS is requesting that companies in our industry complete this document and send it back to us at admin@namfs.org.

NAMFS was able to present these two documents to FNMA on March 10, 2022.  The feedback received was positive and our information will be added to their current evaluation on pricing.
