Elevations CU CFO Michael Calcote said in an interview the Boulder, Colo.-based credit union experienced an 11% increase in mortgage lending in March of this year compared to March 2017. The increase, however, was almost completely attributable to a transient increase in mortgage re-finance activity. "We believe the increase in refinance activity resulted from a fairly typical consumer response to rising mortgage rates," Calcote said, "as fence-sitters rush to take advantage of historically low rates before they climb even higher."
