Top Mortgage Players 3Q16

Smaller top players—those ranked 6th to 25th—continued their assault on the megaplayers in both originations and servicing during 3Q16. In originations, the second tier lenders claimed almost as much of the overall market as the traditionally ultra-dominant top five did. In servicing, where change happens more slowly, the companies ranked in the 6-25 slots increased their share by nearly 2 percentage points while the top five ceded almost 3 percent of their market share.

With rates higher this year, there has been talk of lenders liberalizing their underwriting standards in an effort to increase volume and make up for lower refis.

Do you think your shop will loosen standards over the coming three months?

Yes, but not by much.


Yes, by a lot.


Yes and, heck, we may even do non-QM lending.


No, not at all.


No and we may even tighten credit.
