For all of 2010, the San Antonio, Texas-based institution closed $16.7 billion, just short of the $17.3 billion originated in 2009.

USAA's mortgage servicing portfolio finished 2010 at more than 360,000 loans for over $69 billion. A year earlier, the servicing portfolio was $50 billion.

Closings climbed to 3,700 loans for $850 million in the fourth quarter at LendingTree Loans from the third quarter's 3,300 mortgages for $721 million, according to earnings data. LendingTree funded 2,700 loans for $623 million in the fourth-quarter 2009.

LendingTree's Originations amounted to $2.8 billion last year, falling a hair short of $2.9 billion originated in 2009.

Home-loan production increased 14 percent in 2010 over the record set in 2009 at Foundation Financial Group -- though the company failed to release specific volume numbers. Up to 100 employees are expected to be added this year in Rochester, N.Y., as the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company gears up for another increase.

At just U.S. credit unions, $56 billion in first mortgages were originated during the first nine months of last year, reported.
