Weekly Mortgage Market Update for 7-29-2016

 

 

 

 

For the Week Ending July 29, 2016

   
 

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

The Fed kept policy rates the same at this month's FOMC meeting. Economists speculate we won't see a Fed rate increase until at least December of 2016.

 

Fed comments referenced a strengthening labor market. Jobless claims remained below 300,000 for the 73rd week, supporting their analysis.

 

Consumer confidence remained steady in July, suggesting the economy will continue to expand at a moderate pace. This could contribute to higher rates.

 

Home prices rose 5.2% year-over-year in May, according to Case-Shiller. Home price appreciation is expected to continue with low rates and tight inventory.

 

New single-family home sales hit an 8-1/2 year high in June. Thissuggests sustained momentum in the economy and could contribute to a Fed rate increase this year.

 

June's pending existing home sales were up only 0.2% over May's. Inventory conditions are likely to blame for the slow increase, as demand remains strong.

There's a cop on the side of the road, checking for speeders. A car flies by and the cop sees 12 penguins in the back of the car. The cop hits his sirens and pulls the guy over, runs up to the window, and says, "What are you doing with 12 penguins in the back of your car?"
The guy says, "I dunno."
Cop replies, "Well I think you should take those penguins to the zoo."

"OK," the guy replies.
Next day, the cop's on the side of the road again. Same car flies by, 12 penguins in the back of the car. Cop hits the sirens, pulls the guy over, runs up to his window, and says,"I thought I told you to take those penguins to the zoo!"
Guy replies, "I already did. And now we're going to the movies.”

Rate movements and volatility are based on published, aggregate national averages and measured from the previous to the most recent midweek daily reporting period. These rate trends candiffer from our own and are subject to change at any time.
