SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Magilla Loans, America's anonymous search engine for home and business loans conducted its first annual sentiment survey among mortgage and business lenders, who combine to originate more than half a trillion dollars in loans. According to the survey, by an overwhelming margin, lenders expect to lend more in 2018 than they did this year, with the growth expected to be most significant in the Northwest and Southwest regions of the U.S.
The key findings of the survey include:
- 88% of lenders expect to lend more in 2018 than in 2017
- 56% of lenders believe a Fed rate hike will influence how much they lend to borrowers
- Lenders are more interested in increasing their originations in the Northwest and Southwest regions of the U.S.
- More than a third (36%) of lenders will be reducing their current requirements for loan approval
"Of the emerging trends disclosed in the lender survey, the most prominent is that nearly all lenders will be more aggressive in 2018, pointing to a positive inflow of residential and commercial loans across the United States," said Dean Sioukas CEO of Magilla Loans. "By providing a simple platform for lenders and borrowers to engage with each other, Magilla Loans is prepared for robust expansion in 2018."
