Lewisville-based Nationstar buys mortgage servicing rights from Bank of America

Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, which started out as the mortgage operation for Dallas-based Centex Homes, will buy $215 billion in mortgage servicing rights from Bank of America, which has been slashing its mortgage business in the wake of the financial crisis. It will pay $1.3 billion for the portfolio, which will more than double its customer base to 2.5 million. Mortgage servicers handle the payments on outstanding mortgages, forwarding proceeds to the mortgage holder and dealing with loan delinquencies and foreclosures when necessary. Nationstar, based in Lewisville, says it serviced approximately one million loans with total unpaid principal balances of $198 billion as of Sept. 30. It has about 4,100 employees at facilities around the country, including a call center in Lewisville.
