Still, applications to purchase a home edged up 0.1% only, as borrowing costs remained elevated and close to 2008-highs. "Overall purchase activity has weakened in recent months due to the quick jump in mortgage rates, high home prices, and growing economic uncertainty. The average purchase loan amount declined to $413,500, which highlights an ongoing downward trend seen since it hit a record $460,000 in March 2022”, said Joel Kan, an MBA economist. source: Mortgage Bankers Association of America
