Today’s weekly mortgage applications survey from the Mortgage Bankers Association might seem to offer a small glimmer of hope.
Yes, refinancings-which have been running at around 80 percent of all mortgage applications-fell despite a new record low average rate on the 30-year fixed of 4.38 percent.
Not so good.
But on the other hand, purchase applications rose 2.4 percent, largely driven by a 4.5 percent increase in government purchase applications (FHA).
Great, except for that last part.
