But some sellers relied heavily on these smaller channels: Homebridge Financial Services, ranked 37th for total volume of loans sold to the GSEs in the second quarter, sourced 52 percent of its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans from brokers, while Members Mortgage Services (#314) picked up all its loans from correspondents.
- RPM Mortgage (#171) made larger-than-market loans (average loan size $311,291 compared to the market average of $174,955) while also hitting most of the loan characteristics above the market numbers. The exception was debt-to-income ratio: RPMs average was 36.4 percent while the market average was 32.25 percent.
- Bayview Loan Servicing made all of its retail loans for refinancing and had an average loan size of $148,183. But its correspondents brought it purchase loans as well and the loans, regardless of purpose, were considerably larger than Bayviews retail-generated lending. The purchase-money loans from correspondents had an average size of $286,046; the refi loans, $423,186.
