Weekly Mortgage Market Update for December 6, 2018

For the Week Ending December 6, 2018

Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets.

 

The yield on 5-year Treasury bonds slipped below the rate on 2-year Treasuries, called an 'inversion.' Inverted yield curves could be a sign of a future recession.
Mortgage rates improved this week as stocks tumbled and bonds rallied. Concerns the economy is cooling off could help rates continue to improve.
The trade deficit widened more than forecast in October to the highest in a decade. This underscores continued fallout from the China-U.S. trade dispute.

 

CoreLogic reports homeowners with negative equity declined by 81,000 in the 3rd quarter. The average homeowner gained $12,400 in home equity year over year.
Luxury home builder Toll Brothers reported its first decline in quarterly orders in more than 4 years. It's thought rising interest rates and home prices were to blame.
Buyers are spending more time trying to find the perfect home, often 3 months or longer. However, most buyers say they refuse to give up and will keep looking.

 

 In crucial things, unity. In important things, diversity. In all things, generosity.

— George H.W. Bush
