Mortgage firms saw quarterly volume slow as nonbanks continued to take market share from banks

By Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd Blog

bank buliding sign(January 13, 2016) –  Lenders generated an estimated $430 billion in mortgage originations during the third-quarter 2015 as mortgage firms saw quarterly volume slow as nonbanks continued to take market share from banks. One bank, however, grew its market share.

Banks were responsible for around $190 billion of third-quarter 2015 production, while another $40 billion was generated by credit unions, and the remaining $200 billion came from nonbanks. As shown in the following table, nonbank originators continued to gain market share at the expense of banks.
