On August 30, the CFPB unveiled the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council’s Quarterly Graphs tool, which permits users to view HMDA mortgage loan data and, for the first time, follow mortgage market trends throughout the collection year. According to the CFPB, the new tool integrates currently available quarterly data submitted by financial institutions who report a combined total of at least 60,000 applications and covered loans (excluding purchased covered loans) for the preceding calendar year. The tool provides graphs for an extensive lists of metrics, including loan-to-value ratios, debt-to-income ratios, borrower credit scores, denial rates, interest rates, and total loan costs. The tool also allows users to download graphs in a number of formats, including CSV, XLS, PDF, or custom web link. The tool currently contains data for 2019, 2020, 2021 and the first quarter of 2022, with future quarter data being added as it is available.
