The 30-year fixed mortgage rate, on the other hand, fell by three basis points to 3.27 percent, the lowest level in four weeks.

In contrast to a decline in conventional and government buy applications, the average purchase loan grew for the second consecutive week and now stands at $416,200 – the second-highest sum ever.

The increased loan size is a sign that more activity is taking place at the higher end of the lending spectrum.
