Last week the Federal Reserve decided to stand pat on interest rates and as a result, bond yields and mortgage rates dropped. Average 30 year mortgage rates are down to 3.78 percent this week, a decline from last week's average rate of 3.89 percent.

Lower mortgage rates have caused demand for home loans to increase 14 percent according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Refinance applications rose 18 percent week-to-week, while home purchase applications increased 9 percent.
