Mortgage financing is one the ways by which housing stocks are added and capital formation takes place in an econogmy. The paper examined the impact of the National Housing Fund (NHF), a government agency, in the process of capital formation in Nigeria. The paper adopted some key variables among which are the capital formation, lending rate and capital expenditure and the various aspects of mortgage loans in the economy. The paper employed the Two Stage Least Square (2SLS) techniques to measure the impact of the various units. It discovers that the mortgage loan generally is significant and insurance companies advances for mortgage is also significant while the National Housing Fund (NHF) is not significant. This is however due to many problems bedeviling the Fund. The paper recommends among others, the deepening of the mortgage finance market, further assistance to the help to the National Housing Fund and while the government incentivises the firms involved in lending on mortgage fiscally to improve performance and housing stock in the economy.
