Mortgage applications decreased 1.8% last week, falling to the lowest level since January 2020, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s seasonally adjusted index, with declines noted in both refinance and purchase applications. Rising home prices and low inventory are responsible for the decline, even as mortgage rates remain low, causing experts to speculate whether the roaring housing market is finally cooling down.
