Mortgage credit by country: the latest data

* indicates monthly or quarterly data series
The table shows the level of mortgage credit extended by banks around the world including the most recent value and recent changes. This is the level of outstanding housing credit at a given point in time. The numbers are in billion local currency units and are updated right after the new data are released by the national authorities.

Mortgage credit is by far the main component of household credit which also includes consumer credit. In many countries it exceeds the level of business credit.

Greater access to mortgage credit makes it easier for households to buy real estate which is very beneficial but it does not contribute to long-term economic growth. In fact, if its growth is excessive it could lead to banking crises.

Definition: Loans provided by commercial banks for the purchase of non-commercial real estate. In billion local currency units.
