According to a survey released yesterday by the Mortgage Bankers Association – applications for mortgages in the U.S. jumped 18 percent last week. This is the highest level since May of 2009. Of the applications, purchase applications increased 13 percent from the previous week and refinance applications increased by 19 percent. Refinance applications comprise 79 percent of the total mortgage market.
“Mortgage application volume increased sharply last week. The increase was accentuated due to the comparison to the week including Memorial Day, but the level of refinance and total market activity is the highest since the spring of 2009,” said Michael Fratantoni, MBA’s vice president of research and economics. “Refinance volume increased as borrowers were able to lock in at mortgage rates below 4 percent, and purchase application volume was its highest level in over six months.”
