Quarterly residential mortgage production by lender. Subprime, Alt-A, home equity and conforming originations. Volume by quarter since 2003.


Biggest U.S. Mortgage Lenders

DALLAS -- (Feb. 9, 2012) /PRNewswire/
Residential originations fell in 2011, and some lenders saw a bigger decline than others, according to's 2011 Mortgage Lender Ranking. The government's role in residential finance was reduced last year.

Fourth-quarter originations by all lenders were an estimated $381 billion, up from approximately $317 billion closed three months earlier.

The biggest fourth-quarter lender was Wells Fargo, which reported that volume climbed to $120 billion from the third quarter's $89 billion.

No. 3 Bank of America saw production fall more than any other top-10 lender as it quit correspondent lending.

The best performance was given by U.S. Bancorp, where production climbed 51%.

Top Q4 Originators
1. Wells Fargo
2. Chase
3. BofA
4. Citi
5. U.S. Bancorp

Industry-wide production during all of 2011 was around $1.3 trillion, falling from approximately $1.6 trillion the previous year.

There were $206 billion in loans insured by FHA last year, giving FHA a market share around 16%, down from 19% in 2010.

Loans purchased or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac accounted for approximately 74% of 2011 business, lower than the 78% share a year earlier.

The government owns FHA and controls Fannie and Freddie, putting the country on the hook for around 90% of mortgages originated last year. But that was lower than the approximately 97% government market share in 2010.

Wells Fargo dominated annual rankings despite an 8% decline.

BofA, Chase and Wells Fargo were responsible for about half of all production during 2011.

PHH saw annual production rise 6%, the best annual performance of any top-ranking lender.
