Mortgage Refis Down, Home Purchases Up
Mortgage refis are now at their lowest level since June 2010. New-purchase mortgage applications rose 1.1 percent for the same period. The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose to 4.56 percent, suggesting that homebuyers on the fence finally may be making a move for fear of missing out on historically low interest rates.
