Metrocities Mortgage LLC says it’s paid an undisclosed sum to satisfy “known and unknown” repurchase claims on its past loans.

The move to retire past and future buybacks is one aspect of a roughly $125 million investment in Metrocities Mortgage by Sterling Partners, said Paul Wylie, Metrocities founder and chief executive officer.

“The fact that we have the foresight to settle up with investors means we don’t have to look over our shoulders as other lenders do as loans continue to go bad, probably over the next six quarters,” Wylie told Inman News.
