US Mortgage Applications Rise for 1st Time in a Month
Mortgage applications in the US increased 1.2% in the last week of July, the first rise in five weeks, as both the refinance index (1.5%) and the purchase one (1%) went up. Meanwhile, the average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage fell for a second straight time, down by 31bps to 5.43%. It is the biggest fall in mortgage costs since 2020. “Mortgage rates declined last week following another announcement of tighter monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, with the likelihood of more rate hikes to come. Treasury yields dropped as a result, as investors continue to expect a weaker macroeconomic environment in the coming months. Lower mortgage rates, combined with signs of more inventory coming to the market, could lead to a rebound in purchase activity”, said Joel Kan, MBA’s associate vice president of economic and industry forecasting.
