The Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Weekly Applications Survey offers a comprehensive analysis of mortgage application activity. Since the survey’s inception in 1990, its indices have been a leading indicator of housing and mortgage finance activity. Historical index data is available back to the original start date of the MBA Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey in 1990, with all unadjusted indexes equal to 100.00 for the week of March 16, 1990.
This subscription-based survey contains 15 indices covering application activity for fixed rate, adjustable rate, conventional and government loans for home purchases and refinances. A new report is posted every Wednesday with the previous week’s market activity.
The report also included percent changes in number and dollar volume of applications from a week, a month and a year; average loan size; average contract interest rates and corresponding points for six popular mortgage products; the refinance and ARM shares of applications (by application number and dollar amount)
RESULTS ARE DELIVERED EACH WEDNESDAY MORNING AT 7AM
New State-Level Supplement Report EXCLUSIVELY FOR DIRECT SUBSCRIBERS:
In addition to a detailed report on weekly activity available to subscribers on 7am each Wednesday morning, individual subscribers also will receive the Monthly Profile of State and National Mortgage Activity (MPMA) which provides detail regarding the composition of applications and geographic variation in application activity.
Data from the Monthly Profile of State and National Mortgage Activity is collected in conjunction with the Weekly Applications Survey, but is produced on a monthly basis, is separate and distinct from the Weekly Applications Survey results, and sent EXCLUSIVELY to direct subscribers of the survey (a one-year subscription is the only way to receive this 4-page state-level report on mortgage activity at this time).
