September 2023 ยป thefivestar.com 77 J O U R N A L September 2023 billions) during the first half of 2023 and the cor- responding period in 2022 across 15 U.S. states. In 2023, all tracked states have seen HELOC activity decrease compared with 2022. Notably, California posted the highest approved HELOC amount, surpassing $9 billion so far in 2023. That number is currently down from the $15 billion in HELOC loans that the Golden State recorded in 2022, but still accounts for nearly 10% of the nation's overall activity. Florida followed closely, with $7 billion in HELOC loans, while North Carolina ranked third at $4.2 billion. It's worth noting that the states that saw the most significant HELOC activity declines were those where home prices have either recently remained flat or dropped, including Utah, Idaho, Ha- waii, and Montana. Given prolonged high home prices, some owners will likely continue to tap accrued equity if necessary. On the other hand, current high interest rates may cause some potential HELOC borrowers to rethink that decision. Experts predict that if mortgage rates start to fall, demand for HELOCs will likely pick up again.
