Mortgage demand fell again this week. 

Mortgage application volume dropped about 2% last week compared to the previous week, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported on Wednesday. 

"Both purchase and refinance applications fell, with the purchase index hitting a 28-year low, as prospective buyers remain on the sidelines due to low housing inventory and elevated mortgage rates,” Joel Kan, MBA’s Vice President and Deputy Chief Economist, said in a release. 

On Thursday, Freddie Mac will release its weekly interest rates.
