The transaction is secured by two pools of first-lien residential mortgage loans. All of the mortgage loans are secured by first liens on one-to-four family residential properties, condominiums, coops, planned unit developments and townhouses. The rating affirmations follow our review of the transaction which utilized information obtained from the Trustee, U.S. Bank National Association. The SEMT 2012-1 mortgage pool has experienced no loss and minimal delinquency since issuance. There are currently no delinquent loans in the mortgage pool. Additionally, principal payments on the pool have resulted in increased credit enhancement to each of the rated classes. KBRA`s analysis of home price trends indicate that the mortgage pool also benefits from home prices which on average have risen since issuance.
