The biggest drag on the 10.6 percent drop was a larger drop in multi-family construction which had a 24 percent decline. New single family home construction was down by 5 percent.

A glut of existing homes for sale, foreclosures and short sales are competing with new home sales and are dragging down home prices. New home builder sentiment is stuck at a low level of 16 six out of the past seven months in a report released yesterday by the National Association of Home Builders.

Today's 30 year jumbo mortgage rates are averaging 5.10%, down from yesterday's average jumbo rate of 5.14% as reported by monitorbankrates. If weak economic data continues to be released over the next couple of weeks we could see 30 year jumbo mortgage rates below 5.00%.

15 year mortgage rates currently are averaging 3.87%, unchanged from yesterday's average 15 year rate. 15 year jumbo mortgage rates are averaging 4.45%, down from yesterday's average 15 year jumbo rate of 4.47%.
