U.S. household mortgage requests jumped in weekly period to September 18
US household mortgage requests recovered strongly last Wednesday after the Federal Reserve decided to defer an interest rate increase, as the figures published on Wednesday showed. Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said its seasonal index of user activities, which meets home buying and funding needs, rose 13.9% in the weekly to 18 September.
However, the seasonally-adjusted sub-index of funding claims increased by 18%, while the index of credit claims for home buying, an important home sale index, increased by 9% to its highest since June. Meanwhile, 30 year mortgage interest remained stable at 4.09%. "Last we saw significant price volatility last weekend in the environment of the Fed's global financial markets committee (FOMC) session, and price losses towards the end of the month probably led to potential home buyer and borrower seeking funding," said Mike Fratantoni, MBA economics editor.
