Mortgage and Market Update Economic News: It was certainly an up and down week for the equity and debt markets. After starting the week off strong the stock market took a nosedive on Wednesday due to a combination of the election results (uncertainty regarding the ability of Congress and the President to come together on a deal concerning the “fiscal cliff” that begins in 2013) and the persistent troubles within the European Union. This weakness in the equity markets benefited the bond market and interest rates. The economic reports for the week continued the trend of good news. The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index posted positive results across the board. Weekly Jobless Claims again came in better than expected and the Consumer Sentiment reading of 84.9 is a recovery high.Mortgage Markets: ...

Summer feels long since past with the weather we have had lately but it was really not that long ago. Fall began a little more than a month ago so I decided to take a look at the Blackhawk Country Club real estate market this summer versus last. Interestingly, home sales were down over 2011 which really does not jive with the rest of the market. While inventory of homes for sale remains a problem in the area I am not going to worry too much since this is just a four month snapshot. The jump in the median home price was welcome news though while the marketing time for single family homes remained steady. Sales of townhomes were also steady and the time it took to get them into escrow dropped dramatically while the median price jumped nicely. Interested in buying or selling in the Main Ga...

Mortgage and Market Update Economic News: A tame week for business news is coming to a close. New Home Sales were up 5.7% and the supply of available new homes is the lowest since 2005. That coupled with rising material costs should continue to boost pricing. The Federal Open Market Committee announcement was summed up by the WSJ. “There were no surprises in the FOMC Statement”. Might as well leave it at that. Weekly Jobless Claims were in line with expectations and there was a slight increase in the four week moving average. Pending Home Sales were nothing to write home about mainly due to low supply. It was reported today that the economy grew at an annualized rate of 2% (up from 1.3% in the prior quarter). While this is a move in the right direction we need to see more robust growth ...

Mortgage and Market Update Economic News: The overall theme of market reports for the week were good. The Beige Book’s (prepared about two weeks in advance of Federal Open Market Committee Meetings) wording regarding the economy was upgraded to “economic activity generally expanded modestly”. Also a nice tidbit was that the real estate market has improved. Those of us in the Bay Area already figured this out several months ago but hey this is a nationwide reading. Weekly Jobless Claims fell much more than expected, and like last week’s unemployment number, did come under scrutiny as one large state did not provide complete data. The Producer Price Index reading on inflation was “hotter” due to increases in food and energy costs. Lastly, Consumer Sentiment provided some good news to end ...

Mortgage and Market Update Economic News: Another week is coming to a close and fall is officially set to begin on Saturday the 22nd of September. One word you will be hearing about over the next several weeks are “G-Fees”. The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced last Friday that it has “directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to raise guarantee fees (g-fees) on single family mortgages by an average of 10 basis points.” In simple terms it means that interest rates will be forced marginally higher very soon. If you have any free time this weekend and would like to read up on these fees here is the Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac Single Family Guarantee Fees in 2010 and 2011. There was nothing too earth shattering in the way of domestic economic news for the week. Keep an eye on next Thursday a...

Mortgage and Market Update for July 13th Economic News: Not much news out this week and what there was had a generally sideways bias. Weekly Jobless Claims were reported at 350K down from 374K last week. Consumer Sentiment numbers were mixed with the near-term results stronger while the longer term vision was slightly weaker. All of this news in the end has very little to do with the state of the Bay Area real estate market. We hear a lot about troubles and concerns but here locally we are faced with multiple offers, contingency waivers, happy sellers and in many cases frustrated buyers. One thing to keep an eye out on is the ins and outs of the underlying legislation related to the “California Homeowner Bill of Rights”. This will have an effect on the landscape of real estate now and i...

The first six months of 2012 are "in the books" so now we can take a look at how the Blackhawk Country Club real estate market has compared to the same period in 2011. In both the attached and detached home space things are "at par" on a year over year basis. The time it takes to get a home into escrow has edged lower and median pricing has held steady.  2011 BLACKHAWK COUNTRY CLUB REAL ESTATE REVIEW 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 how your specific area in Blackhawk Country Club is faring.

Mortgage and Market Update for June 23rd Economic News: With Europe on the back burner this week we can focus on the domestic economy. The news for the week is similar to the last couple of months. Not great but so bad either. Housing Starts, while not meeting expectations, still showed strength in some of the underlying components with the West leading the way. The Federal Open Market Committee indicated that the economy has slowed a bit and left the current monetary policy unchanged. Weekly Jobless Claims were reported in line with estimates. Keeping in mind that all real estate is local we see that while Existing Home Sales softened in May pending home sales in California had a double digit jump over last year for the fourth month in a row.Mortgage Markets: The 10 Year Note yield is ...

Mortgage and Market Update for June 8th Economic News: With better news coming out of Europe indicating more cooperation in dealing with their various financial issues global stock markets were able to regain some of their footing. While volatility will continue in the near term it was nice to see the negative sentiment subside. As far as the US Economy goes we saw that Factory Orders fell in April marking the third month in a row. The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index was stronger than expected and since this is forward looking it offsets the softer news in factory orders. The Beige Book (prepared in advance of the Federal Open Market Committee Meeting) showed the economy is still growing at a “moderate pace”. Weekly Jobless Claims were better than expected although there was a slight increa...

Mortgage and Market Update for May 11th Economic News: The elections in France and political turmoil in Greece gave the stock market the jitters to start the week. This broad selloff in equities led to a rally in bonds. As the week went on things calmed down a bit. There was not much in the way of domestic economic news this week. Jobless Claims held steady and Consumer Sentiment beat expectations pointing toward a more positive view of the economy. Around Bay Area housing the buzz is the lack of inventory and multiple offer scenarios across most price points.Mortgage Markets: Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities(MBS) did well for the week and mortgage rates trended lower.  The 10 Year Note is currently trading at 1.855%.Next Week’s Reports: Tuesday: Consumer Price Index, Retail Sa...
