Higher Mortgage Interest Rates This Week Sent Mortgage Application Volume Lower

A slight uptick in mortgage interest rates has caused demand for home loans to decline in the Weekly Mortgage Application Survey released by the Mortgage Bankers Association. The increase in average mortgage rates was expected since bond yields rose recently but the increase in rates won't last since yields have moved lower and the Fed continues to buy mortgage-backed securities (MBS) in the amount of $85 billion a month to drive rates lower.

In the MBA survey for the week ending October 19, 2012, average 30 year conforming mortgage rates increased to 3.63 percent with 0.45 mortgage points, up from the previous week's average 30 year mortgage rate of 3.57 percent with 0.44 mortgage points. In the MBA's Market Composite Index, which measures mortgage loan demand volume for home purchases and refinancing loans, decreased 2 percent on an unadjusted basis compared with the previous week.
