  • Purchase index 267.1 vs 270.4 prior
  • Market index 564.1 vs 556.0 prior
  • Refinancing index 2,282.2 vs 2,190.6 prior
  • 30-year mortgage rate 3.97% vs 3.99% prior
Headline measures the change in number of applications for mortgages backed by the MBA during the week. A mild increase in mortgage activity, which offsets the bit-part drop seen around two weeks ago.
