FHLBank Pittsburgh Appoints Joseph M. Blaston to the Board
PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank) has elected Mr. Joseph M. Blaston to the Board.

"Purchase activity has increased over levels from 2012," said Joe Blaston, head of mortgages at Santander Bank.
Blaston cited several factors for the improvement.
"Low inventories, increased builder confidence, an improving economy and record levels of home affordability," he said.
Blaston of Santander said that while lending credit criteria has been tightening since late 2007, by "restricting the maximum debt-to-income ratio for applicants and outlining specific requirements regarding the applicant's ability to repay the mortgage," lenders responded with redesigned lending products.
"There are many home financing options available for applicants, ranging from first-time homebuyers to borrowers who require jumbo financing, both with fixed and adjustable rate terms, to suit an applicant's specific needs," he said.
Blaston said lenders are modifying loan features to meet the new definition of a qualified mortgage. As a result, short-term lenders could temporarily tighten lending, particularly to less qualified borrowers, until the rules are better understood, he said.
