More information and analysis of closed and denied loans by loan purpose and investor are available in the full report at http://www.elliemae.com/about-us/news-reports/ellie-mae-reports/ .

To get a meaningful view of lender “pull-through,” Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the November 2013 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 55.3% in February 2014, up from 54.9% in January 2014 (see full report).

“The share of purchase loans jumped four percentage points, representing 57% of all closed loans in February 2014,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “This is the first time in four months that the share of purchase loans increased month over month and the largest one-month increase since August 2013, when the share of purchase loans also jumped four percentage points.

“The average time to close a loan dropped from 45 days in January 2014 to 41 days in February 2014,” Corr noted.
