March 2005
Mortgage Servicing News;Mar2005, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p2
This article reports that small-and medium-size banks and thrifts seem to be upbeat about the mortgage business in 2005. According to a real estate lending survey by America's Community Bankers (ACB), nearly 50% of the respondents expect to see an increase in single-family originations in 2005, compared to 2004, while only 21% expect a decline. ACB received responses from 553 banks and thrifts in November and December. A reduction in refinancing activity, increasing adjustable-rate mortgage production and a strong home purchase market is very favorable for depository institutions.
