To get a meaningful view of lender “pull-through,” Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the February 2013 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 53.5% in May 2013, up slightly from 53.2% in April 2013 (see full report).

“On a month-over-month basis, the market in May mirrored April, and credit quality, as measured by FICO, LTV and DTI, continued its slow loosening that started in January 2013,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “The refinance-to-purchase mix stayed at 58% vs. 42%.”

“The average interest rate on a 30-year loan was 3.747 in May, down from 3.808 in April. An interest rate dip often prompts borrowers and lenders to lock in their refinance rates and close,” Corr noted. “While this probably factored into the steady pull-through rate in May, it didn’t affect days to close, which registered their lowest point this year (44 days in May).”

“For the past few months, we’ve noted a gradual decline in high-LTV refinances that are most likely HARP-related,” said Corr. “In May, for the first time this year, HARP-related refinancing activity fell below 10% to 9.4%.”

About Ellie Mae Origination Insight Report

In 2012, the total volume of mortgages that ran through Ellie Mae’s Encompass360 mortgage management software was approximately three million loan applications, or 20% of all U.S. mortgage originations. The Origination Insight Report mines its application data from a robust sampling of approximately 44% of all mortgage applications that were initiated on the Encompass origination platform. Given the size of this sample and Ellie Mae’s market share, the Company believes the Origination Insight Report is a strong proxy of the underwriting standards that are being employed by lenders across the country.

The Origination Insight Report focuses on loans that closed or were denied in a specific month and compares their characteristics to similar loans that closed or were denied three and six months earlier. The closing rate is calculated on a 90-day cycle rather than on a monthly basis because most loan applications typically take one and a half to two months from application to closing. Loans that do not close could still be active applications or applications withdrawn by consumers or denied for incompleteness or nonqualification.

The Origination Insight Report details aggregated, anonymized data and does not disclose client-specific or proprietary information.
