Depending on what part of the country you live, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that the market is shifting to either a balanced or a buyer’s market. Media headlines and information only add to the confusion.  Hence, we are all left with many variables and a great deal of mixed messages.  None of this affects the savvy buyers who see this as an advantageous negotiation tool since there is less competition and sellers of course also understand that there are fewer buyers out there. The flood of information is amazing, all you have to do is look in your email inbox, and it is filled with mixed messages and mixed signals. Every day I am flooded with emails from gurus who want to teach me how to get more buyers or sellers. I’m “guaranteed” to get my money back thanks to the monthly  and annual g...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Q1 GDP released it's final revision, which dropped another .1% from the previous revision; and the final is a drop of 1.6% for Q1.  MBS is Up today, which it was around 17bps in the beginning of the video, then it jumped up to 25bps.  If this continues, then we could see more price improvements; but overall, Mortgage Rates improved from yesterday.  Speaking of yesterday, it rebounded late in the day to closing up 3bps, after being in negative territory all day.  Improved inflation data out of Germany started a little rally with Euro Bonds, which trickled over to the US.  Sentiment is feeling optimistic ahead of the PCE release tomorrow; however, the CPI sorely disappointed about 2 weeks ago.  This report will have greater impact, as it's the Fed's...

Not that there's ever a bad time of year in Manhattan Beach but I'm definitely excited for summer.  Long days, no school drop offs, and the energy that summer brings to the beach and downtown areas.

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Case Shiller Home Price Index (HPI), which measures home prices in the 20 largest metros in US, rose 1.8% in April while it's YoY rose to 21.2% (after March lower revision from 21.2% to 21.1%).  The FHFA HPI, which follows conforming loans, rose 1.6% in April while it's YoY dipped to 18.8% (from 19.1%).  Lastly, the Consumer Confidence continues to drop, as it dipped all the way to 98.7 in June.  This is important because if Consumers aren't feeling good about the economy, then they will stop buying, which in turn helps the economy to continue to move along; but the high inflation (namely food and energy) are eating away at many peoples' ability to buy any of the extras in their life (and thus not feeling good about it).  Stocks started up earlier...

Although it's hard to believe there are currently 9 beachfront homes for sale on the Manhattan Beach Strand. It used to be unheard of to have more than 2 or three hit the market in a given year......that certainly changed in this boom market.What's more amazing is that three of the homes currently for sale on the Strand are priced over $25,000,000.  That may not sound amazing (it's Manhattan Beach real estate after all) but considering that there have only ever been two residential on market sales over $20,000,000, it is astounding.Click on any home below for more detailed information 1800 The Strand Manhattan Beach - Listed at $27,000,000 308 The Strand Manhattan Beach - Listed at $36,000,000 3216 The Strand Manhattan Beach - Listed for $30,000,000 See all of the beachfront homes for s...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  Durable Goods Orders rose 0.7% in May, exceeding expectations of 0.1%.  Pending Home Sales broke it streak of declines in May, as it rose by 0.7% to 99.9k annualized units.  There are a number of important data to watch this week, but none more important than Thursday's PCE release.  PCE is the Fed's favorite gauge for inflation, which carries a bit more weight than the CPI, which the Markets reacted quite negatively a few weeks ago with it's release.  Both Markets are Down today, as MBS started the morning down around 30bps, then it subsided, but when the poor auction results were released around 10am PST for the 5 year Treasury, then it dropped back down toward the lows of the day (about -30bps), as Mortgage Rates worsen by approximately .125% to th...
