Lending exceeded the level from before the pandemic (+4.1% y / y in terms of numbers and +11.8% in terms of value – ed.).

The dynamics of sales of housing loansBIK

As he indicated, the reason is the record value of lending in October 2021. “Once again the historic record has been broken. For the first time in history, monthly lending exceeded PLN 8.63 billion. Moreover, it is worth noting that October is the eighth month in a row with a monthly loan value above PLN 7.5 billion, and the second already with sales in excess of PLN 8 billion, “added Rogowski.

In the opinion of the BIK analyst, “the source of such a good economic situation on the housing loan market is both the still high demand for loans and the banks’ greater willingness to grant housing loans (positive supply response), especially high-value ones, visible in the loosening of the requirements for, inter alia, own contribution. The increase in the average amount of a housing loan is a direct result of the further increase in real estate prices. “

According to Rogowski, the coming months will be very interesting on the housing loan market, “because two opposite phenomena will affect the value of lending.” “On the one hand, it is highly probable that the upward trend in real estate prices will continue, which will result in the necessity to take out even higher loans. However, this may be difficult due to two factors negatively affecting creditworthiness. The first of them are higher, after October and November. The second factor is limiting the loan period to 25 years for the purposes of estimating creditworthiness, in line with the KNF Recommendation, “noted Waldemar Rogowski.

From January to October this year. 230.4 thousand were drawn. housing loans for the total amount of PLN 74.28 billion. This means an increase in annual terms by 27.8%, respectively. and 42.3 percent
