  • Mortgage applications to purchase a home rose 4% last week from the previous week and were a remarkable 21% higher than a year ago, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.
  • That was the ninth consecutive week of gains and the highest volume in more than 11 years.
  • The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages decreased to 3.30% from 3.38%.

“The housing market continues to experience the release of unrealized pent-up demand from earlier this spring, as well as a gradual improvement in consumer confidence,” said Mortgage Bankers Association economist Joel Kan.
