Mortgage Bankers Association Chart of the Week
The chart for this weekend shows how mortgage application levels for home purchases have risen again in recent wee hours in comparison to the same weekend a year ago, after falling slightly in the latter part of the year. From January to June 2018, we recorded annual mean annual sales revenue increases of around 4.5 per cent, before the rate of expansion weakened to an annual mean of 1.4 per cent in comparison with July and August.
In the first two September week, average sales grew by 4.3 per cent. With a large portion of the US populace approaching purchasing ages and older homeowners likely to move or reduce in size, we anticipate that residential property demands will rise further. That was underpinned by a buoyant economic environment and a warm labour supply, as we have seen evidence of more significant pay rises, especially for top performers.
There were two major reasons for the restraint in purchasing activities. Firstly, there is a low stock of houses for rent, which is affected by the sluggish increase in new residential construction and a small number of houses for rent. Secondly, there have been a number of affordable issues resulting from a mix of fast house prices growing (disproportionate earnings growth) and rising mortgage interest levels.
Despite these obstacles to faster procurement boom expansion, we anticipate an approximately four per cent rise in home loans in 2018 and 2019 (based on US dollars).

This 30-year month's month's trend chart and the September 2006 article here remains one of the most visited articles on this site. I' ve upgraded the 30-year history of mortgage rate trends to show mortgage rate trends from April 1971 to December 2007.
Furthermore, historic price development diagrams have been added for 15-year fixed-rate mortgage and 1- and 5-year ARM ( Adjustable Rate Mortgage). Every graph shows the mean mortgage rate per month for the specified term.
