Equibanc is no more?

Thanks to Max for the tip. Looks like equibanc is no more. Per their Website :

For Immediate Release

Wachovia recently conducted an intensive strategic review of its mortgage business which has altered the company's approach to the origination of non-conforming loans. As a result, Wachovia has elected to close EquiBanc Mortgage - Wachovia's only business dedicated solely to non-conforming loans.

If you have any questions, please contact your Account Executive.

This is from the bokers outpost.

From the rumblings I have been reading on several web sites, one of the top three/five is next to implode......

Lot's more to come, get your popcorn ready.

Keep your eye on this Coast Financial Holdings in Bradenton (Ben has article linked). 25% of the loans bad? You think they're gonna stick around to make all those secondary lenders whole? In your dreams.

Coast Financial is a Bank. That mens A-paper loans. Wow I wonder how much collateral they have. It appears they will have first deed on the land, maybe that is enough.

Start a running list of these closures.

I would like to link to resource like that.

Go to this site to see a count down of the imploding sub prime lenders. There are going to be lots of bag holders losing billions of dollars....possibly your pension fund.
