Pending existing home sales in August rose 8.4 percent, reflecting the largest monthly increase since October 2001, and July's figures had an upward revision, according to the National Association of Realtors. "More recently mortgage applications for both home purchases and refinancing grew slightly over the week ending Oct. 3, reversing a two-week decline, based on figures from the Mortgage Bankers Association."
