What’s the Deal with Mortgage Applications?

Despite the fact that a greater number of borrowers are taking advantage of considerably low mortgage rates, housing experts believe that mortgage applications should be higher than what they currently are.

Per the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), total mortgage applications rose over 2.5 percent during the beginning of the month, including applications for home purchases and refinancing. This increase was largely attributed to the uptick in applications involving refinancing which increased by four percent when viewed week over week.

Because of rate levels, there are plenty of borrowers that can still see tremendous benefit, but there are also plenty of homeowners that have already seized upon the refinancing opportunities and therefore are not quite as incentivized to do it again. Interest rates for a 30-Year Fixed and 15-Year Fixed mortgage are currently at about 3.625% and 3.000%, respectively.
