Top Mortgage Players 3Q13

As the mortgage market continues to find its post-crisis footing, some niches are regaining lost ground and some new players are taking on a bigger role.

The top 25 producers, who accounted at one point in 2008 for more than 90 percent of originations, made up just two-thirds of the market in 3Q13. The retail channel is producing a larger percentage of loans than at almost any previous time, responsible in 3Q for three of every five loans made. (But, when it comes to making purchase-money loans, correspondents are an important source.) 

Jumbo originations increased at the same time that government and conventional-conforming loans took large dives. Most of the jumbo growth came from the non-agency side. 

In the servicing sector, the big banks did continue to dominate. But nonbank servicers maintained their upward trend line, taking an increasing share of the business. And while all insurance coverage dropped in the face of flagging originations, private mortgage insurance tumbled less than government coverage to become the primary source of MI for the first time since the mortgage crisis.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
