The 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid, adjustable-rate mortgage also hit a new low, down to 3.75 percent in the latest week, down from 3.79 percent a week earlier – and from 4.82 percent a year ago.

The Mortgage Bankers Association reported yesterday that the refinance share of mortgage activity increased last week to 78.7 percent of total applications from 76.8 percent the previous week, which is the highest refinance share observed in the survey since April 2009.
