We are back in time … at least for the mortgage market. Thanks to Bidenomics!!!!
Mortgage applications decreased 2.1 percent from one week earlier, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending October 27, 2023.
The Market Composite Index, a measure of mortgage loan application volume, decreased 2.1 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis from one week earlier. On an unadjusted basis, the Index decreased 3 percent compared with the previous week. The Refinance Index decreased 4 percent from the previous week and was 12 percent lower than the same week one year ago. The seasonally adjusted Purchase Index decreased 1 percent from one week earlier. The unadjusted Purchase Index decreased 2 percent compared with the previous week and was 22 percent lower than the same week one year ago. Back to 1995 levels.
At least mortgage refinancing applications are back to only 2001 levels.
I want a new drug, other than Biden’s top-down, big-donor friendly Soviet-style command economy. How about a free market without Fed interest rate manipulation??
