Biggest Mortgage Servicers and Lenders

DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Market share was a little less concentrated at the top during the third quarter, according to Mortgage Daily's mortgage lender ranking. Business improved from the second quarter and looks likely to hold through year-end. The servicing landscape is undergoing a transformation.

Data collected by Mortgage Daily indicate Q3 residential originations climbed more than 11% from Q2. That put Q3 production around $475 billion.

Behind the strength was energized HARP 2.0 activity.

Mortgage Daily's findings were based on origination data for 29 lenders that accounted for around 77% of the total estimated market.

Using weekly data from the Mortgage Market Index report from Mortech and Mortgage Daily, it looks like fourth quarter production might not be much different than Q3.

FHA loans accounted for about 13% of Q3 originations. FHA Q2 share was a revised 14%.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were responsible for around 74% of Q3 activity, not much changed from revised Q2 share of 73%.

While the five-biggest lenders maintained their Q2 standings, all but Quicken Loans and Bank of America saw a decline in market share. Combined share for the top five was 53%, a little less concentrated than Q2's revised 54% share.
