Highlights From the CME Group Home sales are proving surprisingly resilient during the pandemic, reflected in the purchase index from the nation's mortgage bankers which rose 5 percent for a second straight week. Year-on-year, this index is up a robust 13 percent. Low mortgage rates are a key factor behind the strength, averaging 3.38 percent in the week for conventional 30-year mortgages versus 3.37 percent in the prior week and, like purchases, underpining refinancing applications which rose a weekly 11 percent.
