    Anybody think the uncertainty around this is related to the recent mortgage rate climb?
    quote from linked article:
    “The volume of mortgage loan applications fell 10.5% on a seasonally adjusted basis in the week ending Oct. 15, the Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday. Refinancing applications fell 11.2% from the previous week, the sixth time in the past seven weeks that refi applications decreased. New-home purchase loan applications decreased by 6.7% from the prior week and were 29.4% lower than in the year-earlier week. ”
