Monthly data for commercial banks based on Federal Reserve estimates benchmarked
to Call Report data on real estate loans outstanding as available. Other data
derived from mortgage debt outstanding as reported separately by National Assn.
of Mutual Savings Banks, Federal Home Loan Bank Board, Institute of Life Insurance
and, through August 1968, the Federal National Mortgage Association, and thereafter by FNMA and the Government National Mortgage Association. Data for mutual
savings banks and for Life Insurance companies may differ somewhat from those
derived from regular quarterly series because of minor conceptual differences for
which adjustments are not made in the monthly series. Altogether, these groups
accounted for 87 per cent of the net increase estimated for all holders in 1967.

Total starts are Census estimates including farm for both permit-issuing and
not.-issuing areas. A dwelling unit is started when excavation begins; all units
in an apartment structure are considered started at that time. FHA and VA
%
starts are units started under commitments by these agencies to insure or guarj
antee the mortgages. As reported by FHA and VA, a unit is started when a field
office receives the first compliance inspection report, which is made before
footings are poured in some cases but normally after the foundations have been
completed. Other starts are derived as a residual, although total and FHA and
;
VA starts are not strictly comparable in concept or timing; other starts include both units financed by conventional mortgages and units without mortgages.
2 Building permits before January 1963 are Census estimates for about 10,000 areas
identified as having a local building permit system in 1959. Estimates beginning
January 1963 are for approximately 12,000 and beginning January 1967 13,000, or
all known permit-issuing places. Unlike starts, seasonally adjusted building permits reflect direct adjustment for differences in the. number of working days per
month, as well as other differences in timing and coverage.

Neither mortgage nor bond yields include allowance for servicing costs which arc
much higher for mortgages than for bonds. Generally, bonds pay interest semiannually; mortgages, monthly. Mortgage yields, if computed as equivalent to

a semi-annual interest investment, would be slightly higher than given in the
table.
.
Based on FHA-field-office opinions about average bid prices in the private
secondary market for new-home mortgages for immediate delivery. Separate
data available for 25-year and—beginning July 1961--30~year mortgages with
minimum downpayments, weighted by probable volume of transactions. Yields
computed by FHA, assuming prepayment period of 12 years for 25-year mortgages
and 15 years for 30-year mortgages. Over the period for which they can be
compared, the movement of t e two mortgage yield series has been similar.
hi
Dashed lines indicate periods of adjustment to changes in contractual interest
rates.
Based on FHA-field-office opinion on typical interest rates (rounded) on conventional first mortgages prevailing in the market areas of insuring officecities. Beginning with April 1960, rate relates only to new-home mortgages;
prior to that date, rate related to both new as well as existing-home mortgages. Dashed ^ine indicates this change in the,series.

Compiled by Federal Home Loan Bank Board in cooperation with Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation, -Data are weighted averages based on probability sample survey of characteristics of conventional first mortgages originated by major institutional lender
groups (including mortgage companies) for purchase of single family homes. Data exclude loans for refinancing, reconditioning or modernization; construction loans to
home-builders; and permanent loans which are coupled with construction loans to ownerbuilders. Related series on conventional mortgage rates only, based on unweighted
opinions of field-office directors of the Federal Housing Administration, are available
somewhat sooner than the results of the FHLBB-FDIC survey, and are included-in the case
of new home mortgage rates--in Table 16.

2

Fees and charges — expressed as a percentage of the principal mortgage amount — include
loan commissions, fees, discounts, and other charges which provide added income to the
lender and are paid by the borrower. They exclude any closing costs related solely to
transfer of property ownership.

3

Includes fees & charges amortized over a 10 year period in addition to the contract
interest rate.
