Biggest Mortgage Bankers - Production news from MortgageDaily.com

DALLAS, July 24 /PRNewswire/ Two California lenders share the title of biggest residential mortgage banker in the country, according to a preliminary analysis of second quarter earnings data by
MortgageDaily.com, the dominant source of online mortgage news.

Wells Fargo & Co. reported second quarter production of $116 billion -- its highest level since 2003. The increase leaves the bank sharing the title of biggest residential mortgage banker with Countrywide Financial Corp. -- which also reported $116 billion in quarterly originations. Countrywide's business improved nearly $13 billion from the first quarter.

But San Francisco-based Wells is poised to take the lead during the third quarter because its pipeline on June 30 was $13 billion better than its Mar. 31 pipeline, whereas Calabasas-Calif.-based Countrywide's June 30 pipeline of $65 billion was barely changed from the prior quarter.

Seattle-based Washington Mutual Inc. retained its spot as the No. 3 biggest residential mortgage banker during the latest period, with $51.1 billion in fundings. But a jump in secondary market purchases landed New York-based JPMorgan Chase & Co. close behind at $50.5 billion.

Other mortgage companies to report a healthy increase in originations from the first quarter include Bank of America, Citigroup and National City Corp.

Downey Financial Corp., however, reported a 26 percent decline in second quarter volume -- noting an increase in its minimum initial payments on ARMs with payment-options has hurt business.

Wachovia Corp. announced its fundings were $15.9 billion, $1 billion better than the first quarter. The Charlotte, N.C.-based company is slated to acquire Golden West Financial Corp. -- which reported its second quarter production remained flat at nearly $12 billion.

On the servicing side, Wells just announced a deal to buy a $140 billion servicing portfolio from Washington Mutual -- boosting its total servicing portfolio to $1.25 trillion and catapulting it past Countrywide -- which currently has the largest residential servicing portfolio at $1.196.
