Loan Originations On 1- to 4-Unit Properties Down 8 Percent Driven by Refinance Drop

Loan originations down on 1 to 4-unit properties

The 1.4 million  loans were originated on U.S. residential properties (1 to 4 units) in the first quarter of 2016 were down 12 percent from the previous quarter and down 8 percent from a year ago to the lowest level since the first quarter of 2014, according to a new report from RealtyTrac.com.

The loan origination report is derived from publicly recorded mortgages and deeds of trust collected by RealtyTrac in more than 950 counties accounting for more than 80 percent of the U.S. population.

The year-over-year decrease in total originations was driven by a 20 percent year-over-year decrease in refinance originations even while purchase originations increased 3 percent from a year ago and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) originations increased 10 percent from a year ago.
