Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Portfolio Grows to $2.252 Trillion


Ginnie Mae’s outstanding mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio grew for the 13th consecutive month in July, hitting $2.252 trillion, up from $2.229 trillion in June and $2.117 trillion one year ago.

Growth in the portfolio was fueled by steady new issuance of Ginnie Mae MBS as homeowners found value in the government-backed mortgage market. New MBS issuance for July was $45.5 billion, supporting the financing of more than 155,000 single-family homes and rental units.

The July issuance includes $43 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $2.01 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, which includes approximately $1.85 billion of loans for multifamily housing.

“As Ginnie Mae celebrates 54 years of being a consistent source of low-cost mortgage liquidity, we continue to see steady growth in our portfolio even in a changing and very dynamic housing market,” says Sam Valverde, Ginnie Mae’s executive vice president.
