ECONOMIC REPORT
Refinancings rise to five-month high
Homeowners rush into fixed-rate mortgages


WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- U.S. homeowners continue to rush to refinance their mortgages, as interest rates have fallen back to a five-month low, data from the Mortgage Bankers Asssociation showed Wednesday.

The number of applications for mortgages filed at major U.S. banks rose 0.1% last week on the increase in refinancings, the industry group said.

Overall, mortgage applications are down 25.1% in the past year.

Applications for refinancings rose 1.3% to the highest level since late March, as rates for 30-year loans dropped to a five-month low of 6.38% from the prior week's 6.54%. Rates for 15-year fixed loans also fell to a five-month low, averaging 6.04% from 6.15%.

Refinancings accounted for 40.6% of total loan applications as tracked by the MBA, up from 39.6% the previous week. That's the highest share for refis since February.

Conversely, buyers steered a wider berth around adjustable-rate mortgages.

ARMs accounted for 26.4% of loans last week, the lowest proportion since February 2004. The rate on one-year ARM averaged 5.91%, a five-month low, compared to 5.97% in the prior week.
Meanwhile, applications for loans to purchase homes fell 1%, reaching the second lowest level in nearly three years.

Later Wednesday, the National Association of Realtors will report on sales of existing homes for July, while the Commerce Department will report on the nation's new-home sales on Thursday. Through June, combined home sales had fallen about 9% since the peak a year ago.
