Study: Lower Origination Volume Leads to Revenue Slump. Answer? Here’s How to Bounce Back

According to a report from analysts at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, a  downturn in mortgage origination volume, offset in part by improved gain-on-sale margins, has led to a slump in mortgage banking revenue. Among the banks studied, some fared worse than others. Volume dropped year-over-year at PNC by 26.9% to $1.9 billion and at Citi by 21.4% to $12.6 billion.

So is the plight of any mortgage banker.: a rollercoasater romp of ups and downs. But new mortgage technologies can help smooth the ride. By having operations centralized, and going to a browser-based loan origination system, residential mortgage lenders can distribute loans effortlessly with enhanced workflows.
