MND & MBA —Application Volume Rises Despite Rate Surge. “An increase in home purchase activity drove mortgage applications higher during the week ended June 17. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said its Market Composite Index, a measure of mortgage loan application volume, rose 4.2 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis and was up 3.0 percent from the prior week on an unadjusted basis.”
MND —Existing Home Sales Slide Back to Pre-Pandemic Level. “April, May, and June of 2020 were the only 3 months where Existing Home Sales suffered as a result of the pandemic. During those three months, the annual pace averaged roughly 4.4 million versus the last pre-pandemic reading of 5.4 million. Nowadays, rates have risen sharply and the recent trend back to Pre-Pandemic Levels (is not yet showing signs of bottoming).”
MBA —MBA Chart of The Week: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. “According to the inaugural 2021 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Study, conducted by McLagan and recommended by Mortgage Bankers Association, participating mortgage firms – both residential and commercial/multifamily – had varied policies, practices and initiatives to further racial and gender equality within their organizations. This week’s MBA Chart of the Week shows the percentage of mortgage firms with specific DEI policies or practices. The majority of firms reported having a committee on DEI, as well as a formal/articulated DEI initiative. “
