Rural Mortgage Lending Over the Last Decade

In a new Fannie Mae Working Paper, our Economic & Strategic Research Group uses public and Fannie Mae data to provide important insights into the rural single-family conventional mortgage market, including the key differences between urban and rural borrower attributes, property attributes, and loan characteristics. The analysis presents a summary of the economic and demographic environment across this urban/rural divide and how some of these differences have evolved over the last decade.

Read our Fannie Mae Working Paper and hear from the author, Nuno Mota, in his related Perspective.
