(Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co, the largest U.S. mortgage lender, expects to make 30 percent fewer home loans this quarter due to rising interest rates, its financial chief said on Monday.

The fourth-largest U.S. bank estimates it will make $80 billion of home loans in the third quarter compared with the $112 billion it made in the second quarter, Chief Financial Officer Tim Sloan said at a conference hosted by Barclays Plc in New York.

That would mark the first quarter since mid-2011 that Wells Fargo did not make at least $100 billion in home loans.

Thirty percent less financial crime is still too much crime.

Or less buyers....

It certainly means less Wells Fargo employees.

The only sure thing you can conclude from this is that we will have less Wells Fargo employees paying all CASH for homes.

Looks like the Bank of America employees will join them...

Bank of America slashes 2,100 jobs

According to Bloomberg, the worst is not over for Bank of America (BAC) mortgage employees, with the mega bank announcing plans to eliminate 2,100 jobs and close 16 mortgage offices as rising interest rates weaken loan demand.

I'm confused. Why are they laying off so many employees if posters here are saying the housing market is strong and prices are going to keep going up due to strong demand. Serious question to those guys

Well, maybe posters here are more knowledgeable than you?

Too bad you're not one of them....

egads101 says

for the past years 65% of all loans have been REFINANCE LOANS.

Which makes 35% for PURCHASES!!!

Now pull out a big chunk of the 65% going to cash-out refi's and what happens to the economy?? Think Lowes, Home Depot, boats, cars, home improvements, vacations, juniors college payments, etc..

the oracle is never wrong

Have you found someone yet to help carry that HUGE, ego driven head of yours around??

veruca says

if posters here are saying the housing market is strong and prices are going to keep going up due to strong demand.

The only ones saying that are the slumlords here that are over-leveraged on their empires and are scared shitless of a down-turn in the housing market!!

Bitter because I make enough money to buy a multimillion dollar home? Okay. Entitled because I want to get a good deal on my purchase? Okay.

as rates rise, refinance loans tank; Purchase loans have been relatively stable when compared to last year.

Serious answer to you. the oracle is never wrong; housing is going to lull into the spring, but prices will be higher next year.

I know others are more knowledgeable. That's why I asked the question. Why are you so nasty?? I see why you have such a low rating as a teacher at your college. Unbelievable, how you treat people. Thank you to everyone who answered politely and unbarbaric.

Just knowing refis are booked as mortgage income by a bank should be enough reason never to take a mortgage. The whole biz is bs. The article says rising mortgage rates are hurting their business, but it also must be really helping their business because who do you think gets all that interest! Are you fin stupid? Banks must be super excited during this period of high prices AND higher interest. Even if it only lasts a couple of months that's probably billions of dollars. It's great to be a bank. People don't even understand how you make money. I don't even understand it.

I agree with others here who think that sounds like a pretty big problem. Thus the layoffs and reduction of mortgage departments by the major banks. Party's over. For now. They might think of another way to throw a party.

It's a real big problem if your one of those loan originators who got laid off....
