I have prepared a new Oregon county level FHA Single Family loan summary table HERE showing FHA loan volume for CY 2011 through September.
Some observations about the first 9 months of CY 2011 Oregon FHA loan activity:
- FHA has insured 10,641 loans, representing the commitment of more than $2.1 billion in private funds.
- Of that total, 61% of loans were for home purchases, with the remainder either refinance loans or Home Equity Conversion loans.
- The average HECM loan was $66,000+ more than the average home purchase loan; 67% of HECM loans were made outside the 5 counties in Oregon that are part of the Portland metro area, compared to only 49% of other refinance loans.
