How to Read the MPF Price Sheet – Best Efforts Pricing

Loan Level Price Adjustments (LLPA) are not a part of the price quote. You must calculate the LLPAs and price up to cover the Fannie Mae required adjustments.

Tip: See the LLPA Pricing Worksheet

  • The 3 days needs to be considered when determining your lock expiration date.
    Example: Your loan will be closed, fully disbursed and ready to sell (request funding/purchase) to MPF on March 15; you will want your lock expiration date to be March 18. For your pipeline tracking purposes, March 15 should be your price expiration date.
