Fannie Mae has re-claimed some lost market share in the prized first-time homebuyer market during the first half of 2016, according to a new Inside The GSEs analysis and ranking. Fannie securitized $41.70 billion of first-time buyer purchase loans in the first six months of this year. That represented 28.4 percent of the total FTHB business securitized by the three agencies, up from 27.8 percent for all of last year. Freddie Mac, however, is still playing catch-up. The GSE accounted for 17.0 percent of the agency FTHB market, compared to 17.8 percent in 2015. The top securitizer of first-timer loans remained Ginnie Mae, with a 54.6 percent share of the sector.
