Refis Pull Down Mortgage Apps, Share at Decade Low
Although there was a modest rise in purchase-money applications, a drop in refinances drove down overall mortgage applications. Refinance share was the thinnest it's been in a decade. The jumbo-conforming rate spread thinned.

GNMA Jumbo Issuance at 3-Yr Low, HMBS at 6-Yr High
Monthly securitizations retreated at the Government National Mortgage Association. As jumbo issuance fell to a three-year low, reverse mortgage securitizations were the most in at least six years.

Refi Share Wider Despite Record Low Rate-Term
A modest weekly drop in new mortgage business was led by adjustable-rate mortgages. Government share widened, as did refinance share thanks to a gain in cashouts that more than offset a record-low rate-term share.
Mortgage biz off, gov share broader
Mortgage Applications Up on Purchase-Money Surge
A weekly decline in refinance mortgage applications was more than offset by a surge in purchase-money activity. The jumbo-conforming spread, meantime, ballooned.

Refinances Restrain Weekly Mortgage Activity
An improvement in weekly purchase-money business wasn't enough to offset a drop in refinances. Meantime, the share of activity for loans to veterans fell to the lowest level in seven months.
Purchases rise, VA share lowest in 7 months
Home Lenders More Restrictive Last Month
The ability for prospective borrowers to qualify for a single-family loan was more elusive last month, and jumbo credit tightening led the contraction.

Refis Nudge Mortgage Applications Higher
A slight up tick in weekly mortgage applications was driven by increased refinance activity. Meanwhile, veterans' share of applications was thinner than it's been in four months. The jumbo-conforming rate spread widened.

Refi Surge Leads Mortgage Business Higher
New mortgage activity ascended from the holiday week, and a sudden surge of strength in refinance business was out front of the improvement. Adjustable-rate activity also accelerated. The jumbo-conforming rate spread narrowed.

ARM activity improves
Home Purchases Drive Up Mortgage Applications
New weekly applications for home loans increased, and the escalation in activity was due to an increase in home purchase financing. Government share was the widest it's been in five weeks. The jumbo-conforming rate spread ballooned.
Mortgage Biz Up From Yr Ago, Rate-Term Share Sinks
Compared to a year ago, more borrowers locked in rates on their home loans this holiday week. A slowdown in refinance activity continued, with rate-term transaction share at its most narrow point on record. Government business also saw a big decline.
Government business tumbles
