Survey Says Rates, Applications Up

The Mortgage Bankers Association’s Weekly Applications Survey shows a 1.3 percent increase in mortgage loan applications last week. Also, the seasonally adjusted purchase index jumped 6.8 percent and is at the highest level since last October.

The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages also moved up to 5.04 percent from 5.01. More here and here.
