Fannie predicts originations will top $1.46 trillion in 2015

The home loan mortgage industry is still on target for a much stronger year despite the economic slowdown in the first quarter, Fannie Mae said Tuesday in its June economic forecast.

Total home loan originations should top $1.46 trillion, up 23 percent from last year, according to the forecast.

Housing starts are also expected to rise 10 percent and home sales by 5 percent over 2014 totals, the government-sponsored enterprise said.

“Given the uneven economic growth in the U.S. and slow growth around the globe, interest rates are unlikely to surge,” Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist Doug Duncan said in a news release. “This should enable the housing market to better withstand some headwinds from higher rates this year than in the past.”

Fannie said the U.S. is experiencing a moderate rebound in growth after the real gross domestic product contracted in the first quarter.
