    Real estate agents leave a home for sale during a broker open house in San Francisco, California.Justin Sullivan | Getty Images Mortgage rates remained at a record low last week, but refinance demand pulled back anyway. That, in addition to a brief respite in the surprisingly strong demand from homebuyers, caused total mortgage application volume to fall 8.7% on a seasonally adjusted basis from the previous week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Homebuyer mortgage applications have been surging for five straight weeks, thanks to pent-up demand from March and April and a coronavirus-induced desire by more consumers to find more space and escape urban apartments. Purchase mortgage volume fell 3% for the week but was a remarkable 18%...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Long-term mortgage rates increased slightly as the U.S. economy showed signs that the worst of the coronavirus-fueled recession may have passed. The average interest charged on a 30-year mortgage was 3.18% this week, up from 3.15% a week ago, according to a report Thursday by mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. That average is down from 3.82% a year ago. The economic collapse following the COVID-19 outbreak has corresponded with a decline in mortgage rates.
