Mortgage and Market Update for January 20th Economic News...for the week revolved around the housing market. The Housing Market Index (released by the National Association of Home Builders) handily beat expectations. The index has risen for the fourth consecutive month and is at a four plus year high. Housing Starts, while less than expected, were led lower by the volatile multi-family component. The single family home sector rose by 4.4%. Existing Home Sales continued the positive news rising 5% in December. Inflation reports were subdued and Weekly Jobless Claims were down dramatically. It’s certainly nice to have a week where the news was good and the European debt and banking issues did not dominate the headlines.Mortgage Markets: Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities have take...

The following numbers represent the current concentration of Short Sales in Pending Sale Status versus Traditional Sales in Pending Sale Status for Alamo CA as of January 16th 2012. As you can see there is a big difference between the percentage of short sales of total pending sales and what is currently for sale that is a potential short sale. This variance relates to the additional time that it can take to get a short sale completed. Please keep in mind that this only reflects the market on the specific day quoted.  Alamo Short Sales take time and may be represented over several months in this data while traditional sales close escrow in the 30-60 day range.  Additional Short Sale Information Available for Alamo

The following numbers represent the Real Estate Market Review of homes sold in 2011 versus 2010 for Alamo, CA 94507. The Alamo market, while experiencing a slowdown in unit sales, has seen pricing and marketing times holding steady. The attached home information varies greatly as the data sample is too small to really reach any conclusions but we can certainly see that median pricing was under pressure. Keep in mind that real estate markets are local in nature and there will be micro markets in every town.  Contact me for more in depth information about the Real Estate Market in Alamo.

Mortgage and Market Update for January 6th Economic News: The New Year is here and the more things change the more they stay the same. The European Markets are still stressing the global financial system as debt troubles remain but our news in the US for both employment and manufacturing was good. The ISM Manufacturing Index provided us with very positive news to start out the year by beating estimates and showing increases in the manufacturing sector. Factory Orders, while less than consensus, were still growing. The Weekly Jobless Claims continued under the 400,000 level, the Unemployment Rate ticked down to 8.5% and private payrolls grew by 212,000 in December.Mortgage Markets: Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities finished the week on a strong note.

Mortgage and Market Update for November 10th Economic News: Here we go with another volatile week. While the situation in Greece has calmed a bit, Italy came charging to the forefront on Wednesday amid debt concerns and clobbered markets around the globe. We had a quiet week for economic news here and what was there was pretty good. The trade deficit improved in September. Weekly Jobless Claims were 390,000 (under that 400K mark) and the four week moving average edged down to levels seen six months ago. Tomorrow’s Consumer Sentiment is expected to come in at 61.5 after stronger readings in the second half of October. Banks and bond markets are closed tomorrow in Observance of Veteran’s Day.Mortgage Markets: Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities have experienced a choppy week and mor...

Mortgage and Market Update for November 4th Economic News: Once again news out of Europe on the progress of handling their sovereign debt crisis is having a major effect on our markets. Last week stocks rallied on the news that the situation in Greece may be under control only to be unwound by the Greek Prime Minister. This has produced a nice rally in our mortgage rates this week with the stock market under pressure. As far as US economic news is concerned there was nothing really earth shattering. The Federal Open Market Committee announcement on Wednesday reiterated that interest rates will stay at low levels through mid 2013 and the economy still has “significant downside risk”. The unemployment rate slid to 9% from 9.1% and 80,000 jobs were added which was less than expected.Mortga...
