Newport Beach, California Dec 2, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Today TovoData, the leading provider of multi-sourced real estate, mortgage, and property ownership data sets spanning 100% of U.S. residential properties, released its Quarterly Mortgage Demand Index that shows continued strength in mortgage demand across southern and western states. The top 10 states in the third quarter include seven of the same states from last quarter.
A Mortgage Demand Index (MDI) of 100 indicates that demand in a state is on par with the nation. During the third quarter of 2021, 18 states had a TovoData MDI over 100, and 30 had an MDI over 75. The second quarter of 2021 had 18 states (including Washington DC) with an MDI over 100 and 40 states with an MDI of 75 or more. The top 10 states in the third quarter include seven of the same states from last quarter.
The shifting composition of mortgage demand by state stands out in the 3Q 2021 TovoData MDI," said Sara R. Rutledge, Economic Consultant for TovoData. "Arizona and Colorado saw the largest quarter-over-quarter increases in mortgage demand driven by an interest in refinancing, followed by Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida where both refinance and purchase mortgage demand is increasing."

The other six states have lower MDIs versus last quarter with the largest MDI decreases occurring in Mississippi (down by 20) and Louisiana (down by 18)

The bottom 10 TovoData MDI states in the third quarter of 2021 are a mix of Northeast and Midwest states, eight of which were on the list in the second quarter of 2021. Maine and New York are the new additions to the bottom 10 states in the third quarter as the Maine MDI fell by 19 points versus last quarter and the New York MDI fell by 13 points.

"We are expecting to refinance originations to slow to 1.2 million due to trends in track demand, the recent volume of originations, and upward pressure on mortgage rates," said Drew Warmington, CEO of TovoData. "Purchase originations typically experience a seasonal slowdown in the fourth quarter. This combined with high home prices and material costs is expected to bring purchase originations in the fourth quarter of 2021 down 12% from their third-quarter total."

About The TovoData Mortgage Demand Index
The TovoData Mortgage Demand Index (MDI) measures the quarterly concentration of demand for new mortgages based on lead activity for purchase and refinance mortgages by state. The TovoData MDI is also produced as two subindices - the Purchase MDI and the Refinance MDI. The MDI serves as a predictive indicator for the concentration of mortgage originations across states in the next quarter. An index value of 100 means mortgage demand in a state is on par with the nation during the quarter. An index value above 100 means mortgage demand in a state is stronger than the nation during the quarter and an index value below 100 means mortgage demand in a state is weaker than the nation during the quarter.
