|For the Week Ending February 21, 2019|
Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets.
|The unsecured personal loan market hit an all-time high last year, reaching $138 billion. A rise in lending from fintech firms is helping to fuel the borrowing frenzy.|
|Minutes released from last month's FOMC meeting show the Fed is likely to hold off on policy rate increases in 2019 and may slow balance sheet reductions too.|
|Jobless claims fell last week, down 23,000 to 216,000. But the 4-week average rose to a 1-year high, suggesting the labor market may be slowing down slightly.|
|Homebuilder sentiment rose in February after falling at the end of 2018. Lower mortgage rates and continued job market strength have boosted optimism.|
|January's existing home sales were at their lowest level in 3+ years. Sales were down 8.5% from a year ago, continuing a loss of momentum in the market.|
|January's median price for all housing types was up 2.8% over a year ago, at $247,500. At January's pace, inventory will be exhausted in 3.9 months.|
