Mortgage Bankers Weekly Survey: Mortgage Applications Increase 

Mortgage Bankers Association for the week of 6/15/2010

Fixed rate mortgages are changed little this week, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage inching up to 4.5% from last week’s 4.49% average rate. 
The MBAA reports their  Market Composite Index:
 
 ( Loan application volume) Increased 13% over last weeks number. 

T
heir Refinance Index: 
increased 16.5 percent from the previous week and made of the bulk of mortgage activity this week.However,  Mortgage applications decreased 4% from one week earlier, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Associations Weekly Mortgage The MBAA reports their  Purchase Index  increased 4.5 percent from one week earlier, a slight uptick in purchase volume.

Key to better numbers is growth, especially job growth. The MBAA forecasts a slower, but positive growth situation. 4th quarter 2010 GDP growth was 3.1%. After a dip to 1.8% this quarter,  they see growth through 2012 largely around 2.8%. Not likely a strong scenario for enough job growth to help the housing markets push forward.
