Washington, D.C. – Ginnie Mae’s mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio outstanding grew to $2.389 trillion in April, including $33 billion of total MBS issuance, leading to $16 billion of net growth. Issuance for this month was higher than March’s $28 billion, and significantly higher than February’s $24 billion.
April’s new MBS issuance supports the financing of more than 112,000 households, including more than 50,700 first-time homebuyers. Approximately 72 percent of the April MBS issuance reflects new mortgages that support home purchases, as refinance activity remained low due to higher mortgage rates.
For the 2023 calendar year to date, Ginnie Mae supported the pooling and securitization of more than 177,000 first-time homebuyer loans.
The April issuance includes $32 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $1 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, including approximately $1.2 billion in loans for multifamily housing.
