2012 Loan Originator Survey – Originations – Production

2012 Loan Originator Survey

Survey and Analysis of the Nation’s Mortgage Loan Originators


Sponsored By


Average loan production for participants in the 2012 Loan Originator Survey was mostly unchanged between 2010 and 2011. But thanks to a robust refinance market, 2012’s business is on pace to jump 40 percent. A small share of surveyed loan officers originate commercial real estate loans.

Annual Mortgage Production
The average originator closed $30.96 billion in residential loans during 2011, according to the participants who completed this section of the survey.

That was a little better than the average $30.46 million closed per originator in 2010.

The industry as a whole, however, saw business drop 10 percent between 2010 and 2011 — indicating that this bunch is generally outperforming their competition.

2012 Outlook
This year is looking even better for the surveyed originators.

The group funded an average of $21.65 million in the first six months of 2012. On an annualized basis, that works about to around $43.30 million per average originator this year.

The potential 40 percent gain from 2011 to 2012 would be stronger than the 25 percent year-over-year increase expected for the industry as a whole.

Aggregate Production for Surveyed Group
As a group, total production for those who provided funding data was $4.365 billion for 2011, up slightly from the $4.295 billion in 2010.

Using the annualized numbers, the surveyed loan originators are on track to close $6.1 billion in 2012.

CRE Production
Commercial mortgages were originated by only 14 percent of the respondents.

Of those who do originate commercial mortgages, average CRE loan production was $11.3 million in 2011.
