Mortgage Application Boston

At Boardwalk Properties, we are devoted to all things real estate, whether that means buying property, selling property, commercial leasing, investment, and more. Our team is always staying up to date on the latest news and trends in the real estate world so we can best serve our clients. Recently, we discovered a promising piece of news: mortgage applications have risen 49%, making it the largest leap since seven years ago, back in 2008.

As the United States’ economy continues to grow and the job market improves, there are still weak points overseas, which when coupled with the price of oil contribute to the decline of long-term interest rates. Now that mortgage rates have hit their lowest mark since the spring of 2013, refinance applications have truly taken off, more than doubling in amount. Along with the drop in interest rates and increase of jobs in the country, it also appears that credit availability has improved as well. All of these factors converge to explain the sudden jump in mortgage applications these days.
