“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.
