Mortgage Rates Hold at Year's Low
Long-term fixed rates, which already stood at a low for the year, maintained their position and are unlikely to rise in the next report.

Mortgage Market Index 172 in week ended Aug. 22

Mortgage Rates Retreat, Unlikely to Rise
Long-term fixed rates on home loans declined to the lowest level so far this year, and all indications are that they won't be any higher in the next report.

Mortgage Business Fails to Bounce Back
Even as fixed mortgage rates dipped below 4.5 percent, a resurgence remained illusive. Adjustable-rate mortgages delivered the weakest performance.

Interest rates on home loans moved moderately lower this past week and could continue that trend into the next report.

Lender, AMC Settle With CFPB
A national home lender is accused of using bait-and-switch tactics, overcharging prospective borrowers for services provided by its appraisal management company and not disclosing third-party affiliation.

Mortgage Market Index 174 in week ended Aug. 8

10-Year Yield At 13-Month Low
It's been more than a year since the yield on the 10-year Treasury note has been this low, positioning fixed mortgage rates to wipe out the past week's increase.

New Regulations Blamed for Higher Closing Costs
The cost to finance a home purchase went up this year, and new regulations were blamed. The state with the highest costs wasn't even among the five-worst last year, while 2013's lowest cost state is now among the five highest.

Yield Spread Premiums
Yield spread premium issues, studies and lawsuits. Mortgage wholesaler YSPs paid to mortgage brokers.
