Greater range of data on mortgage market
Data from 'New mortgages' survey
The Swiss National Bank is expanding its range of data on the mortgage market. It provides the public with selected indicators on the current granting of mortgage loans by banks in Switzerland. The SNB now publishes time series on the volume of newly granted mortgage loans, the borrowers' income, the net rent and the valuation of the pledged properties. Also published are indicators on loan-to-value and affordability, which are calculated on the basis of these data. The range of data also contains subsections for various segments such as owner- occupied residential property, residential property rented out by households and residential property rented out by companies.
The published data are based on an individual-loan survey that the SNB conducts with the largest mortgage-lending banks. Results from this survey are taken into account in the SNB's assessment of risks to financial stability (associated information can, for example, be found in the Financial Stability Report).
The data in the form of configurable tables and charts can be accessed on the SNB's data portal (data.snb.ch, Table selection, Banks, New mortgages) or via Datasets. The data portal also contains further information in the form of Noteson the published data and on the underlying survey.
