Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Portfolio Reached $2.59 Trillion in May
Published Date: 6/6/2024 5:10 PM
Washington, D.C.—Ginnie Mae’s mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio outstanding grew to $2.59 trillion in May, including $36.9 billion of total MBS issuance, leading to $14.3 billion of net growth. May’s new MBS issuance supports the financing of more than 116,000 households, including more than 58,000 first-time homebuyers. Approximately 74 percent of the May MBS issuance reflects new mortgages that support home purchases because refinance activity remained low due to higher interest rates.

The May issuance includes $36.1 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $804 million of Ginnie Mae I MBS, including $655 million in loans for multifamily housing.​

For the 2024 calendar year to date, Ginnie Mae has supported the pooling and securitization of more than 249,000 first-time homebuyer loans.
