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 August 2013. 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 the 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 May 2013 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 53.1% in August 2013, down from 55.4% in July 2013 (see full report).

“Purchase loans continued to gain share in August, climbing 4% to 57% of all loans,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “This was the highest percentage of purchase loans since we began tracking this data in August 2011.

“HARP-related high LTV refinances (95% or more) continued their resurgence, moving up from 11.1% in July 2013 to 13.4% in August 2013,” he added.
