Looking for more data clues to the growing rebound in housing markets? The Minneapolis Fed has your data fix, thanks to a new, special-focus website designed to enhance the public’s understanding of housing and mortgage trends.

Launched by the Bank’s Community Development Department, the Housing Market and Mortgage Conditions in the Ninth District website offers graphs, maps and at-a-glance synopses of mortgage originations, mortgage performance and home prices in the Ninth District and nationwide (see example below). It also features an archive of housing-related articles and reports from the Community Development, Public Affairs and Research departments.
