Mortgage Applications Lowest Since 2000 For This Time Of Year

Mortgage applications fell 17.0% this week on a non-adjusted basis (following a 7.2% the previous week) for the biggest 2-week drop since January 2015. Even on a seasonally-adjusted basis the last 2 weeks have dropped 6.2% and 7% (the biggest 2 week drop since Feb 2015). However, just as Sept 2014 was notably seasonally weak for mortgage applications, for this time of year, mortgage applications have not been weaker since 2000.



And this is happening as interest rates are set to rise...
