According to the Mortgage Bankers Association's Weekly Applications Survey, average mortgage rates were largely unchanged last week. Loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages both saw slight declines, while 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with both conforming and jumbo balances were unmoved. This follows the previous week's results which showed mortgage rates at their lowest point so far this year.
However, despite favorable rates, demand for mortgage applications was down from the previous week. Michael Fratantoni, MBA's chief economist, told CNBC the reason may be inventory. “Home sales remain constrained by a lack of inventory across the country, as evidenced by home price growth running almost three times the pace of overall inflation,” Fratantoni said. Still, though fewer homes for sale may be holding sales back, mortgage application demand remains 7 percent higher than at the same time last year, which indicates strong interest from buyers this spring.
The Mortgage Bankers Association's weekly survey has been conducted since 1990 and covers 75 percent of all retail residential mortgage applications.

Frisco TX Condo vs Townhouse: What’s The Difference?When it come
"January 30, 2017. I worked with Guy Arnold to purchase my newly built home in December 2016. Guy was a pleasure to work with. Guy was knowledgeable about the real estate market in North Dallas and helped me negotiate a great deal with the builder. Guy was available for me whenever needed and had a very quick turn around on showings! I had a very aggressive timeline to purchase my new home and thanks to Guy, I was able to find a new home in 2 weeks and close on my home in 3 weeks. Guy had a vested interest in my needs, prioritizes, and timelines. I highly recommend using Guy if you are looking for a realtor to purchase or sell your home."
