Biggest Mortgage Lenders in Q2

DALLAS, Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Among the largest lenders in the country, two companies traded positions as industry-wide quarterly originations edged up. Initial indications are that the current quarter's production is on track for a decline. Meanwhile, the second- and third-biggest servicers traded rankings.

Home loans funded by U.S. lenders totaled an estimated $502 billion during the second quarter, according to Mortgage Daily's Mortgage Lender Ranking.

The estimate was based on earnings data, publicly disclosed statistics and a quarterly survey conducted by Mortgage Daily.

Overall activity increased around 2% from the first quarter.

Compared to the second-quarter 2012, production has risen more than 8%.

Wells Fargo maintained its standing as the biggest residential lender in the country.

A distant second was JPMorgan Chase, while Bank of America regained its No. 3 ranking after falling behind Quicken Loans in the first quarter.

Production at Nationstar Mortgage more than doubled from the first quarter -- the second-best quarter-over-quarter performance of any top lender.

The biggest quarter-over-quarter loss was suffered by Ocwen Financial.

Nationstar's business nearly quadrupled from the second-quarter 2012, the best year-over-year improvement.

With a 250% increase, Stonegate Mortgage delivered the second-largest increase from the year-earlier period.

United Shore followed with a 156% ascension, then 154% at PennyMac.

Based on the Mortgage Market Index from LoanSifter and Mortgage Daily, third-quarter originations from all lenders are likely to decline by around 22%.
