The FHFA reported a monthly home price increase of 1.8% and year-over-year growth of 15.7% for April. Both figures broke previous records.

Mortgage applications fell last week to levels not seen in more than a year. Purchase applications dropped 6.9% and refi applications were down 8% from the previous week.
