On an unadjusted basis, the Index decreased 0.5% compared with the previous week. The Refinance Index increased 0.9% from the previous week and is the highest Refinance Index recorded in the survey since December 2010. The seasonally adjusted Purchase Index decreased 4.0% from one week earlier. The unadjusted Purchase Index decreased 3.2% compared with the previous week and was 15.5% lower than the same week one year ago.
