Mortgage Loan Amounts Hit a Record High

Have you been planning to buy a home or invest in one for a while, but you keep hesitating? Why is that? Is it because you do not know what kind of loan you can get? Is it because you think the loan amount you were approved for is not enough? Or are you hesitating for some other reason?

Last week, Realtor Magazine reported that mortgages for home purchases have reached a record high. Because the prices of homes are going up so are the loan amounts that banks are approving. The Mortgage Bankers Association reported on the week of January 22nd the average mortgage loan amount hit an all-time high to $395,200. This average is for the entire country and clearly, we all know that California Real Estate is more valuable and more in demand.

Joel Kan who is the associate vice president of economic and industry forecasting for the mortgage bankers association, said “ Average purchase loan amounts in early 2021 continue to rise across all loan types, driven by a strong pace of home sales, tight housing inventory, and high home price-growth,” while reporting the latest data on mortgage applications for the week of January 29th he said “Conventional, FHA, and VA purchase loan sizes all set new survey records last week.”

Home prices are going up so that affects the loan amounts, but it is also likely that potential buyers are taking out bigger loans than they need due to the record low mortgage rates. Depending on your financial status, your intention with the purchase – first time home, upgrade to a bigger home, or an investment property – you have to understand your own financial limits and make sure that as a borrower you are not overreaching for a loan amount that will have a negative effect on your finances.
