Although overall annual home lending volume slowed last year, several mortgage originators report achieving the billion-dollar milestone.

Among all U.S. home lenders, there were 6.778 million first-lien mortgages originated during all of 2017 for a total of $1.87 billion.

Aggregate production retreated from the preceding year, when 7.723 million residential loans were closed for $2.1 trillion.
