Total Loan MarginTotal loan margin on IRLCs expected to close for the second quarter of 2013 was 348 bps, a 24 bps decrease from the first quarter of 2013 and 33 bps less than the second quarter of 2012. Margins narrowed in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to rising mortgage interest rates. Margins generally widen when mortgage interest rates decline and tighten when mortgage interest rates increase, as loan originators attempt to balance origination volume with operational capacity.
