Purchases Up as Refis Slip and Rate Set to Slide

Mortgage Market Index 215 for the week ended April 6

April 6, 2012

By staff

An uptick in purchase, jumbo and adjustable-rate activity this week was offset by easing in refinance and government business. Mortgage rates slipped this week and might tumble in the next report.

At 215, the U.S. Mortgage Market Index from Mortech Inc. and Mortgage Daily for the week ended April 6 was unchanged from the week ended March 30. But the index, which reflects pricing inquiries pulled by loan originator clients of Mortech, has improved 8 percent from the same week last year.

Refinance inquiries were down 2 percent from last week but 61 percent higher than the week ended April 8, 2011. At the same time, the share of overall inquiries that were for refinances slipped to 61 percent from 62 percent but was up from 41 percent a year ago. This week's share was based on a 48 percent rate-term share and a 13 percent cashout share.

About the Mortgage Market Index
The U.S. Mortgage Market Index launched on Dec. 17, 2009.

The index itself reflects the average number of rate locks each week per OpenClose originator-user. The index is an excellent indicator of upcoming mortgage production.

A byproduct of the Mortgage Market Index is a full report each week that includes the latest mortgage rates, refinancing trends and other important mortgage data.
