"In the last two weeks, [home-loan applications] have picked up 30 percent to 35 percent," said Joe Blaston, of Sovereign Bank in Villanova.
"In the last two weeks, [applications] have picked up 30 percent to 35 percent," to about $10 million a week, said Joe Blaston, who runs Sovereign Bank's Villanova home-loan office.
Big banks, said Blaston: "There's a pretty strong need by a lot of institutions" to make new loans to recover from their old, bad loans. Businesses aren't borrowing more. By contrast, home values "have stabilized," so " Bank of America, Chase, and Wells Fargo have been getting back into jumbos."
Thank free-spending Europeans, too: "Part of what has happened is all the issues with the sovereign [debt]" in Greece and other countries, Blaston said. With the value of the euro falling, skittish investors are buying U.S. Treasuries and driving down bond rates; same goes for U.S. mortgage securities, which investors still see as government-protected.
Will cheap money last into summer? "I don't make predictions," said Blaston, laughing, a little.
