The Home Mortgage Explorer

With millions of records, publicly available Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data can be daunting to navigate. The Home Mortgage Explorer does the work for you. Developed by the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and Cleveland, this data tool allows users to more easily explore trends in mortgage lending between 2010 and 2017 for the U.S., states, metropolitan, and non-metropolitan areas. Trends can be examined by loan purpose (e.g., home purchase vs. refinance) and loan type (e.g., conventional mortgages vs. FHA), and all measures are provided by applicant and neighborhood income.

Looking for examples of how to use the tool? Check out the infographic. Ready to dig into the data? Go to the dashboard.
