2012 was the strongest full year of mortgage originations we've seen since 2007. 8.6 million mortgage loan originations. A major factor is the positive outlook towards the economy and real estate in general.

As President Obama delivers his annual message before Congress Tuesday night the minds of private investors in the Alternative Lending Market are concerned for the future of the industry. "It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few," Obama says. With a heavy focus on the jobs and the economy, Obama gave a dynamic, well written presentation, one that left people wanting to hear more. But the deficit and the economy are not the centerpieces that concern private investors. Rather, the public's perception and positive attitude are those direct centerpieces. Despite a seemingly slow-and-steady recovery in jobs, in the stock market and other improving indicators, the unemployment rate ticked back up again last month and a recent Commerce Department report showed the economy shrank by .1 percent in the last quarter of 2012.
A recent AlternativeLendingMagazine.com poll released last week showed that 72 percent of private investors say the nation's overall positive mood about the economy and real estate drives their attitude toward lending more money in the Alternative Lending Market -- as opposed to just 15 percent who believe decreasing spending and job creation would be a factor for their private investor capital. Opposition to another round of stimulus was 3-to-1, according to the poll.
The poll showed that out of 10 issues tested, more private investors are "extremely" concerned about the general positive outlook of the economy and real estate than any other issue. Even as a majority of private investors -- 75 percent -- disagreed with Obama on most government spending issues, they felt his upbeat, well delivered speech would place a direct impact on the general consumer's positive outlook towards the economy and real estate market.
