3-Month Activity

Weekly VA Mortgage Business Rises to 4-Month High
Prospective mortgage origination activity ascended from the holiday week, with adjustable-rate mortgages seeing the strongest gain. Lending activity for veterans climbed to the highest level in over four months.

Overall new mortgage activity recovers from holiday slump
Purchase Activity Falls to 9-Month Low
As new mortgage activity softened during the holiday week, weekly purchase-money business sank to the lowest level since January. Government share has significantly widened over the past year.

Government share widens as overall mortgage business slows
Government Leads Increase In Mortgage Business
Government activity led an increase in new weekly mortgage business. Excluded from the rally, though, were jumbo and adjustable-rate mortgages.

Jumbo, ARM activity down
3-Yr High for Cashout Share, ARM Widest Since 2015
It has been at least three years since the share of borrowers extracting home equity has been this broad, while the last time adjustable-rate mortgage share was this wide was during the final week of 2015.

Mortgage Market Index 133
Refinances Drive Down New Mortgage Business
Driven by refinance transactions, new mortgage activity retreated this past week. While adjustable-rate business was down the most, the category had the biggest year-over-year gain.

ARMs have biggest year-over-year increase
Mortgage Market Index 149

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.
