Some 58% of enquiries went through to DIP stage and the packaged conversion rate from DIP to application rose by 15%.
Applications for packaged cases also grew by 65%.
Phil Jay, managing director of BDS Mortgage Group, says: “These figures are a good indicator of how the packaged market is progressing and BDS is still going strong within it.
“Whilst we have seen many lenders leave the market, there is no shortage of demand for those who remain.”
He adds: “I am confident that our placement and packaging service will mean than BDS is still a main contender and I hope that in 2009 lenders will start to return to this corner of the market.”
