Mortgage News

The mortgage market is a key part of the US economy, as demonstrated by the subprime controversy of 2007 and 2008. To stay up-to-date on this important topic, sign up for the Wiser mortgages news email. The mortgage industry is large with many lenders involved in both the personal residential part of the market, and in providing mortgage loans to business. The number of products is also vast, and includes fixed-rate mortgages and adjustable-rate mortgages. And it is a regulated industry. The regulations aim to protect the interests of mortgage holders as well as to maintain a mortgage market that is stable and healthy. Ongoing changes in the banking sector will continue to have an impact on the market, as will the US economy as it continues to recover from the 2008 financial crisis which was partly caused by bad mortgage lending practices.
