Last month, residential fundings were $2.8 billion -- suggesting first-quarter originations could exceed $8 billion.

MetLife serviced 506,601 residential mortgages as Dec. 31. The portfolio included 159,286 loans owned by MetLife and 347,315 loans serviced for others.

Mortgages and consumer loans held-for-investment were $49.4 billion at yearend, rising from $49.2 billion at the end of the third quarter.

Commercial mortgage holdings were $36.0 billion on Dec. 31, up slightly from $35.9 billion three months earlier.

Net income at MetLife was $3.1 billion last year, according to its earnings report. Income fell from $4.2 billion in 2007..

During just the fourth quarter, earnings were $1.0 billion, up from $0.6 billion in the third quarter and $1.1 billion a year earlier.
