Real Estate Loans consist of loans to individuals and businesses that are secured by real estate. The loans may be secured by a first or second lien, they may be open-end or closed-end, and the collateral may consist of 1-4 family homes, multifamily properties, farmland, or nonfarm nonresidential properties. Real estate loans include credit to purchase commercial real estate and to fund construction and land development. Real estate loans comprised about 53 percent of loans and leases in December 2008.
