The number of people deciding to refinance their home mortgages increased once again early this month.
The Mortgage Bankers Association noted that the volume of mortgage applications rose by more than 1 percent while the purchase index tumbled slightly. Although it is up 16 percent overall from a year ago.
Refinancing grew for the third straight week, amounting to a five-point increase to the index, which now stands at 207 percent higher than last year. This is the highest level the refinance index has reached since June 2013, a strong indicator of the real estate market’s activity.
