Purchase Apps Retreat Again as Inventory Dries Up

Applications for
both refinancing and purchase mortgages retreated last week, pulling the
Mortgage Bankers Associations (MBA's) Market Composite Index lower for the

volume, declined by 1.8 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis during the week

Refinance Index ticked down 2 percent from the week ended June 19, low interest

than the same week one year ago.
