Redwood Trust (RWT) is reportedly trying to jumpstart the market for mortgage-backed securities that aren't backed by the government, and may launch an offer next week of at least $200M of securities backed by newly-originated "jumbo" mortgages. If successful, it would mark the first such sale in more than two years.
