The average rate on 30-year fixed rate mortgages this rate continued to fall to near the 5 percent mark, close to the record low seen a month ago, Freddie Mac said.

In a separate report, the Mortgage Bankers Association said mortgage applications jumped 45.7 percent for the week ending Feb. 13 compared to the week before. The increase was largely driven by a 64.3 percent in applications for refinancings, but applications for purchase loans were also up a seasonally adjusted 9.1 percent.
