Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Portfolio Reached $2.56 Trillion in March

Washington, D.C.-Ginnie Mae's mortgage-backed securities (MBS) portfolio outstanding grew to $2.56 trillion in March, including $32.4 billion of total MBS issuance, leading to $12.5 billion of net growth. March's new MBS issuance supports the financing of more than 101,000 households, including more than 45,000 first-time homebuyers. Approximately 68 percent of the March MBS issuance reflects new mortgages that support home purchases because refinance activity remained low due to higher interest rates.

The March issuance includes $31.5 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $883 million of Ginnie Mae I MBS, including $793 million in loans for multifamily housing.

For the 2024 calendar year to date, Ginnie Mae has supported the pooling and securitization of more than 137,000 first-time homebuyer loans.
