To get a meaningful view of lender pull-through, Ellie Mae reviewed a sampling of loan applications initiated 90 days prior (i.e., the February 2014 applications) to calculate an overall closing rate of 57.8% in May 2014, up from 55% in April 2014 (see full report).

“Since January, purchase share has increased by at least three percentage points per month, and purchases now represent 66 percent of all closed loans,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer of Ellie Mae. “Purchase share has grown nearly 25 percentage points since May 2013.

“Average days to close all loans moved back up to 40 in May, after falling below the 40-day mark last month for the first time since we began tracking data in August 2011,” added Corr.

“From an interest rate perspective, the average 30-year rate fell to 4.530 percent, its lowest percent since November 2013,” said Corr. “Our expanded coverage of the different loan categories also showed new 2014 lows for conventional (4.669 percent) and FHA (4.383 percent) 30-year interest rates.”

About the Ellie Mae Origination Insight Report

In 2013, approximately 3.5 million loan applications ran through Ellie Mae's Encompass mortgage management solution. The Origination Insight Report mines its application data from a robust sampling of approximately 57% of all mortgage applications that were initiated on the Encompass origination platform. Given the size of this sample and Ellie Mae’s market share, the Company believes the Origination Insight Report is a strong proxy of the underwriting standards that are being employed by lenders across the country.

The Origination Insight Report focuses on loans that closed or were denied in a specific month and compares their characteristics to similar loans that closed or were denied three and six months earlier. The closing rate is calculated on a 90-day cycle rather than on a monthly basis because most loan applications typically take one and a half to two months from application to closing. Loans that do not close could still be active applications or applications withdrawn by consumers or denied for incompleteness or nonqualification.

The Origination Insight Report details aggregated, anonymized data and does not disclose client-specific or proprietary information.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
