Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 3.76 percent with an average 0.7 point, up from 3.57 percent last week but well below the 4.32 percent registered a year ago.

The 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 3.4 percent with an average 0.7 point, up from 3.25 percent last week but down from 4.25 percent a year ago.

The 1-year Treasury-indexed ARM averaged 3.26 percent with an average 0.6 point, unchanged from last week and down from 4.35 percent a year ago.

A separate survey by the Mortgage Bankers Association showed applications for purchase loans fell last week, as uncertainty surrounding the Federal Reserve’s plan to buy $600 billion in bonds sent mortgage rates up.
