Mortgage Apps Fall

October 10th, 2012

In the latest weekly report from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), nationalmortgagenews says mortgage applications dropped 1.2 percent for the latest weekly reading Oct. 5 following a 16.6 percent spike for the previous week ending Sept. 28. Refi applications accounted for 83 percent of the apps, much the same as the previous week. Many mortgage analysts and lenders expect October to be a very strong month, perhaps stronger than Sept. As MHProNews as learned, MBA’s Mike Fratantoni said refi volumes are “still near three-year highs, and purchase applications increased to the highest level since June, with both conventional and government volumes increasing.” Average 30-year fixed-rate mortgages (FRMs) were going for 3.56 percent while 15-year FRMs fell to 2.88 percent, the lowest in the history of the survey.
