Stocks rallied to new highs early this week on positive COVID-19 vaccine news but fell later due to concerns about possible lockdowns to curb a resurgence in cases.
Jobless claims fell by the most in 5 weeks to a 7-month low. The drop signals a continued recovery in the labor market despite COVID-19’s recent surge.
 
NAR is exploring ways to reduce tax burdens on home sellers and spur housing development. Changes could help reduce the historic housing inventory shortage.
Mortgage demand from homebuyers dropped to its lowest level in 6 months last week. Purchase applications fell 3% but were still 16% higher than a year ago.
