Washington, D.C.—Ginnie Mae’s mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio outstanding grew to $2.477 trillion in September, including $36.6 billion of total MBS issuance, leading to $19 billion of net growth. Issuance for this month was less than $38.1 billion in August and $38.0 billion in July.

New September MBS issuance supports the financing of nearly 120,000 households, including 56,000 first-time homebuyers. Approximately 75 percent of the September MBS issuance reflects new mortgages that support home purchases, because refinance activity remained low due to higher interest rates.

For the 2023 calendar year to date, Ginnie Mae supported the pooling and securitization of more than 466,000 first-time homebuyer loans.

The September issuance includes $35.6 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and more than $991 million of Ginnie Mae I MBS, including approximately $1,814 million in loans for multifamily housing.
