Adjustable rate mortgages continue to be seen as a popular alternative to 30-year fixed rate mortgages. 

The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported Wednesday that mortgage application volume fell 1% last week, but adjustable rate mortgage demand rose to its highest level in almost a year. 

“Mortgage activity continued to stall, with applications dipping to the slowest weekly pace since 1995," Joel Kan, MBA’s Vice President and Deputy Chief Economist, said in a release. "These higher mortgage rates are keeping prospective homebuyers out of the market and continue to suppress refinance activity. The ARM share of applications inched up to 9.5 percent, its highest since November 2022.”
