Secondary Mortgage Market

The market for buying and selling mortgages. After a bank makes a mortgage loan to a client, it may choose to sell the loan to another party, which reduces its risk of non-payment; this transaction is based on the same concept as accounts receivable financing. Often, these mortgages are re-packaged together as mortgage-backed securities.
