Mortgage Lending to Traditionally Underserved Borrowers & Neighborhoods in Boston, Greater Boston and Massachusetts, 2017

In its 25th annual report on mortgage lending patterns, the Massachusetts Community & Banking Council (MCBC) offers information on patterns of mortgage lending in the City of Boston, in Greater Boston, in Massachusetts, and in thirty-six large cities and towns.

Specifically, the report examines:

  • The Level and Composition of Mortgage Lending
  • Borrower Race/Ethnicity and Income
  • Neighborhood Race/Ethnicity and Income
  • Denials of Mortgage Applications
  • Lender Activity
  • Legislative and Regulatory Developments

In addition to the data in the report, MCBC provides data on all Massachusetts cities and towns in a set of supplemental tables.

An infographic highlighting key data points is also provided.
