KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to Flagstar Mortgage Trust 2018-6RR (FSMT 2018-6RR)

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to 43 classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from Flagstar Mortgage Trust 2018-6RR (FSMT 2018-6RR), the eighth prime RMBS transaction issued by Flagstar Bank, FSB.

The FSMT 2018-6RR pool comprises 910 first-lien, prime residential mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $326,147,792 as of the October 1, 2018 cut-off date. The collateral consists entirely of fully-amortizing, fixed rate mortgages (FRMs), most of which possess a 30-year (97.7%) maturity term. 77.9% of the underlying loans are collateralized by investment properties underwritten to agency guidelines, while 22.1% of the loans are non-agency underwritten loans primarily collateralized by owner-occupied properties. The pool is characterized by significant borrower equity in each mortgaged property, as evidenced by the WA original LTV of 66.8% and WA original CLTV of 66.9%. The weighted average original credit score is 761, which is well within the prime mortgage range.

Similar to previous FSMT transactions, FSMT 2018-6RR employed due diligence sampling on a portion of the underlying collateral, with full-scope due diligence (credit, compliance, valuation and data verification) on 30.0% of the pool, by loan count.

KBRAs rating approach incorporated loan-level analysis of the mortgage pool through its Residential Mortgage Default and Loss Model, an examination of the results from third-party loan file due diligence, cash flow modeling analysis of the transactions payment structure, reviews of key transaction parties and an assessment of the transactions legal structure and documentation. This analysis is further described in our U.S. RMBS Rating Methodology.
