Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Portfolio Reaches $2.52 Trillion in December
Published Date: 1/11/2024 9:00 AM

Washington, D.C.—Ginnie Mae’s mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio outstanding grew to $2.52 trillion in December, including $28.7 billion of total MBS issuance, leading to $13 billion of net growth. December’s new MBS issuance supports the financing of nearly 95,000 households, including more than 47,000 first-time homebuyers. Approximately 76.3 percent of the December MBS issuance reflects new mortgages that support home purchases because refinance activity remained low due to higher interest rates.

The December issuance includes $27.6 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and nearly $1.02 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, including approximately $902 million in loans for multifamily housing.

For the 2023 calendar year to date, Ginnie Mae supported the pooling and securitization of more than 620,000 first-time homebuyer loans.
