For Week Ending August 29, 2015

The stock market has been experiencing a bit of a tizzy of late, but that does not seem to have had huge ramifications for housing. The Mortgage Bankers Association recently reported that mortgage applications and refinancing have both been on the rise, likely in order to get ahead of an expected rate hike by the Federal Reserve. While stock market flux can have undesirable ripples throughout the economy, it appears that housing has remained relatively untouched for the time being.
