Planet Home Lending's servicing portfolio ended Q3 at $45 billion, up 36% from $33 billion at year-end 2020. Total units rose to approximately 196,000, increasing 29% from approximately 152,000 at year-end 2020, the company reported.

Correspondent volume rose to $6 billion in Q3 2021, up 46% compared to Q3 2020's $4.1 billion and a new company record according to Planet Home.
