Strong Hombuying Demand Slowing Down; Record Builder Confidence; Fewer 2nd Homes

While applications for new home purchase mortgages jumped in September, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) expects only modest changes in the September sales data. MBA’s Builder Application Survey (BAS) data shows mortgage applications for new home purchases increased 38.2 percent in September compared to a year earlier but were down 5 percent from August 2020 . The latter change does not include any adjustment for typical seasonal patterns. MBA estimates new single-family homes were selling at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 869,000 units in September 2020. This estimate is derived using mortgage application information from the BAS, as well as assumptions regarding market coverage and other factors. The estimate is a decrease of 0.2 percent from the August sales rate of 871,000 units
