Even as mortgage interest rates continue to bounce around record lows, the 2020 surge in home buying may be slowing into 2021, as mortgage demand fell 4.2% over the past two weeks. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, home purchase application volume dropped 0.8%, from the previous week and was only 3% above last year’s level. For the last half year, annual comparisons have averaged around 20% higher. Refinance loan requests fell 6%, but were still 100% higher than a year ago, thanks to those historically low rates.
