To get a meaningful view of lender “pull-through,” Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the July 2013 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 51.4%, down from 52.3% in September 2013 (see full report).“In October 2013, the share of purchase loans climbed to 61%, the highest since we began tracking in August 2011. In October 2012, purchase loans represented only 31% of closed loans,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “This has been the ninth consecutive month that the purchase loan percentage has either increased or stayed steady. “The average FICO scores for closed loans last month remained at 732, but this was significantly lower than the average of 750 in October 2012,” added Corr. “Similarly, debt-to-income ratios rose for the fourth month in a row, from 25/37 in September 2013 to 25/38 in October 2013.
