3-Month Activity

Weekly Mortgage Business Increases
A week-over-week decline in new mortgage activity was spearheaded by new conventional lending. The overall decline was contrasted by jumbo business, which recorded a gain.
New Low for Rate-Term Refi Share, Purchase Biz Up
Weekly mortgage business was higher led by conventional activity. Purchase business was the strongest it's been in eight months. Rate-term refinance share, which at one point in the past six years was nearly two-thirds, fell to a new single-digit low.
Conventional leads overall activity higher
Mortgage Business Still Stuck in Holiday Slump
The mortgage market has failed to recover from the slump in new mortgage business that accompanied the holiday week. But government and purchase business were both better.
Mortgage Business Down in Holiday Week
An expected slowdown in new mortgage business during the holiday week impacted purchase financing and refinancing equally. The biggest week-over-week drop was with adjustable-rate mortgages.
Home Purchase Financing at 9-Month High
As home purchase financing activity climbed to the highest level in nine months, overall new mortgage business was the best it's been in three months. Government programs were out front of the week-over-week gain.
Refis see bigger rise than purchases
