To get a meaningful view of lender pull-through, Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the April 2014 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 57.7 percent in July 2014, down from 60.7 percent in June 2014 (see full report).“The purchase market continued to climb in July with the share of closed purchase loans reaching 67 percent, the highest percentage since we began tracking this data in August 2011,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “Meanwhile, time to close for all loans dropped to 37 days, the lowest average we’ve seen since we began tracking. This reflects time to close decreasing across the board, with an average of 36 days for conventional loans and 38 days for FHA and VA loans.”
