RISMEDIA, September 9, 2010—The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) released its Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending September 3, 2010. The Market Composite Index, a measure of mortgage loan application volume, decreased 1.5% on a seasonally adjusted basis from one week earlier. On an unadjusted basis, the Index decreased 1.9% compared with the previous week.

The Refinance Index decreased 3.1% from the previous week. The seasonally adjusted Purchase Index increased 6.3% from one week earlier. The unadjusted Purchase Index increased 4.0% compared with the previous week and was 38.8% lower than the same week one year ago.

“Purchase applications increased last week, reaching the highest level since the end of May. However, purchase activity remains well below levels seen prior to the expiration of the home buyer tax credit, and is almost 40 percent below the level recorded one year ago,” said Michael Fratantoni, MBA’s vice president of Research and Economics. “On the other hand, refinance volume dropped last week for the first time in six weeks, but the level of applications to refinance remains close to recent highs, as historically low mortgage rates continue to draw borrowers into the market.”

The four week moving average for the seasonally adjusted Market Index is up 4.4%. The four week moving average is up 1.3% for the seasonally adjusted Purchase Index, while this average is up 5.0% for the Refinance Index.

The refinance share of mortgage activity decreased to 81.9% of total applications from 82.9% the previous week. The adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) share of activity remained unchanged at 6.1% of total applications from the previous week.

The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages increased to 4.50% from 4.43%, with points decreasing to 0.96 from 1.34 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent loan-to-value (LTV) ratio loans. The effective rate decreased from last week.

The average contract interest rate for 15-year fixed-rate mortgages increased to 4.00% from 3.88%, with points decreasing to 0.87 from 1.45 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent LTV loans. The effective rate decreased from last week.

The average contract interest rate for one-year ARMs increased to 7.00% from 6.95%, with points decreasing to 0.21 from 0.23 (including the origination fee) for 80 percent LTV loans.
