Quarterly residential production surged at Countrywide Financial Corp., though nonprime numbers dropped. Delinquency was up for the third consecutive month.
Second quarter fundings totaled $130.2 billion, the Calabasas, Calif.-based company reported today. Fundings climbed from $115.0 billion during the first quarter and $116.0 billion a year earlier.
Subprime production during the latest quarter was $5.7 billion, falling from $7.9 billion in the first quarter, Countrywide said. Second quarter home equity fundings were $10.6 billion, up slightly from $10.5 billion the prior period.
"Market conditions became increasingly challenging throughout the second quarter of 2007," Countrywide's President and Chief Operating Officer David Sambol said in the announcement.
For just June, the mortgage giant reportedly funded 240,777 residential loans for $45.3 billion, up $0.9 billion from May. Subprime represented $1.9 billion of the month's figures while home equity production was $3.7 billion.
