Economical Updates On The Brink Last week we reported that the rate of homeownership remains stagnant. This week we learned of a new survey from the Gallup people that seems to show that could be on the brink of change–maybe even massive change. The survey, conducted among both homeowners and non-homeowners, indicates that more than half of the latter don’t […]
Economical Updates Blizzard of Good News Good housing and economic news fell almost as thick and fast as snow on the East Coast this week. Hard to know where to start digging out. Proceeding chronologically, the first up was another very good Labor Department report announcing the creation of 235,000 new jobs in February. Below the headline number was some especially […]
Economical Updates Tough Sledding Despite taking a dip in December, existing home sales still closed out 2016 as their best year since 2006. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) said that over the 12 months an estimated 5.45 million single-family houses, townhomes, condos, and cooperative apartments changed hands. This was 200,000 more units than sold in all of 2015 […]

Economical Updates Getting a Jump Housing news this week was dominated by construction reports. Well, maybe dominated is too strong a word–there wasn’t much competition. A burst of enthusiasm on the part of homebuilders last month had carried the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) Housing Market Index to a 12-year high. NAHB said builder confidence moderated a bit this month; […]
Economical Updates More Than Half-Full Two pieces of news dominated an otherwise slow week. Taking them in order of appearance, last Friday brought a very encouraging Employment Situation Report.

Economical Updates Demand for Higher Loan Limits The Employment Situation report for October was a solid one again, with 161,000 new jobs, less than analysts’ consensus of 178, but in the mid-range of their estimates. The unemployment rate fell 0.1% to 4.9%, which Econoday says some consider full employment. Probably the sweetest data nugget however was average hourly earnings. They rose “an outsized” 0.4% […]

Economical Updates The T & I of PITI Dealing with apples and oranges might be easier but CoreLogic still recently attempted to compare property tax rates across the U.S. The variations might be more numerous than states with multiple taxing authorities, different assessment formulas and exemptions for elderly, disabled, veterans, and so forth, but the company has come up with estimates for median […]
Economical Updates Seasonally Strange It’s been a weird spring. The weather has been decent in much of the country (except Texas, of course) yet builders are not taking advantage of it and the usually hot spring market so far is sort of tepid. Inventories are being blamed and that may be true for existing/resale houses. We aren’t sure what […]
