Market Report - American Family Funding

Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets.

 

 

My body is like a temple, ancient and crumbling.

Do I just call you? Or do we resolve this quickly with 77 text messages.

Who can relate: Checking for phone to find out what time it is, but then end up checking it again cause you weren’t paying attention the first time.

Autocorrect makes me say things I didn’t Nintendo.

I remember a time, long ago, when I could sneeze without injuring myself.

Now The Market Report . . .

Talks continue for another pandemic stimulus package, although it is now questionable if a deal could be pushed into law before the November elections.
Pandemic aside, 6,500 new restaurants opened last month. That’s only 100 fewer new restaurant openings nationwide compared to a year earlier, a good sign for the recovery.
Jobless claims declined last week, falling for the third time in four weeks. Continuing claims fell to 8.37 million; however, more people were on extended benefits.
 
Single-family homebuilding surged in September, cementing the housing market’s status as the star of the economic recovery. Starts were up 8.5% over last month.
Homebuilder sentiment set another record high in October, despite challenges of shortages in labor, lots, and lumber, as buyer demand remains strong.
Existing home sales jumped 9.5% in September, but sales could be even more robust if more homes were available. Inventory fell 19.2% annually, a 2.7-month supply.
