  • Market index 746.7 vs 744.2 prior
  • Refinancing index 3,709.3 vs 3,835.7 prior
  • 30-year mortgage rate 3.43% vs 3.40% prior
Mortgage activity rose slightly as purchases continue to move off the lows from the previous weeks, and that can be taken as a positive signal in terms of housing market conditions at least. Elsewhere, the low rates will also help to spur refinancing activity during this time.
