Now to the 1003 loan application form, also called the Uniform Residential Loan Application, was developed by the Federal National Mortgage Association, also known as Fannie Mae, as a standardized form for the industry. Fannie Mae and its sibling, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., or Freddie Mac, are lending enterprises created by Congress to maintain liquidity in the mortgage market.

These entities purchase mortgages from individual lenders and hold the loans in their own portfolios, or sell the loans to other entities as part of a mortgage-backed security (MBS). By selling consumer mortgage debt to these federally-backed entities, lenders maintain the liquidity necessary to consider loans for purchase, as it is simpler for lenders to use the appropriate form at the outset than to try to transfer information from a proprietary form to a 1003 when it comes to sell the mortgage. 

In other words, your giving information to your Loan Officer as part of the loan application process, makes for a smoother transition for the Lender as your loan progresses into approval and ultimately, sold to your servicer, to whom you make your monthly payments for the duration of the mortgage.
