Ellie Mae Releases September 2012 Origination Insight Report

Ellie Mae ® (NYSE: ELLI), a leading provider of enterprise-level, on-demand automated solutions for the residential mortgage industry, today released its Origination Insight Report for September 2012. The report draws its data and insights from a robust sampling of the significant volume of loan applications—more than 20% of all originations in the United States—that flow through Ellie Mae’s Encompass360 ® mortgage management software and Ellie Mae Network™.

To get a meaningful view of lender “pull-through,” Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the June applications) to calculate a closing rate for September 2012, which was 50.5%, compared to 47.8% in August 2012 (see full report).

“In September, the share of conventional loans continued to outpace FHA loans,” said Jonathan Corr, chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “During the past six months, FHA loans have dropped from 28% to 19% while conventional loans have risen from 64% to 72%. This is mostly likely the result of HARP 2.0 initiatives as well as increases in FHA insurance premiums that took effect in April 2012.
