U.S. mortgage activity jumped in the week ending Friday, partly because activity the previous week was suppressed due to Hurricane Sandy. With the numbers skewed in the previous week, the volume of mortgage applications jumped 12.6 percent in the week, while refinancing activity rose 13 percent, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday. \"Following the decrease in applications two weeks ago due to the effects of Superstorm Sandy, mortgage applications in many East Coast states rebounded strongly this week,\" Mike Fratantoni, vice president of research and economics at the Mortgage Bankers Association, said in a statement.

The beat the previous record low for fixed-rate, 30-year loans, which had been 3.53 percent. The average interest rate for 30-year contracts on jumbo loans -- those larger than $417,500 -- fell from 3.88 percent to 3.83 percent with points rising from 0.36 to 0.41. Interest rates for 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages fell from 2.95 percent to 2.88. Points for 15-year, fixed-rate contracts fell from 0.4 to 0.37.
