MORTGAGE ITEMS TO BE AWARE OF!!! LOW MORTGAGE RATES ARE STILL HERE!!!

Took a look at some information in the last few days and found this information you all would find useful:

Highlights

•   Stock market went on a wild ride this week.  After posting gains on the back of a strong industrial production report, markets were set to end the week down at 2pm on Friday afternoon.

•   The Federal Reserve’s senior loan officer survey indicates that the supply and demand for credit appears to be improving, albeit gradually.

•   U.S. Industrial Production numbers surpassed expectations, expanding by 1.0% in July.

 •   Yet housing disappointed as new starts inched up to 546K units and building permits fell to 565K. 

•   Initial jobless claims rose to 500K.  This does not bode well as the reported data corresponds with the reference week for the August payrolls report. 

•   CPI data released this morning indicated a 0.6% increase in all-items consumer prices on a month-over-month basis. On a year-over-year basis, inflation increased from 1.0% to 1.8%. 

•   Data was heavily skewed by the implementation of the harmonized sales tax (HST) in British Columbia and Ontario and a 2 percentage point increase in Nova Scotia’s HST. Year-over-year headline inflation increased from 1.6% to 2.9% in Ontario, from 0.5% to 2% in BC, and from 0.7% to 1.7% in Nova Scotia. 

•   The housing market, which has already begun to trend downward, has been particularly impacted by the HST implementation as BC and Ontario are Canada’s two largest housing markets. 

•   Existing home purchases are not subject to HST, though related services are, but created a false sense of urgency that resulted in outsized declines in home sales in Ontario and BC in recent months. This, in turn, drove nationwide home sales downwards.  

•   This temporary factor aside, the housing market is expected to contract throughout the remainder of 2010 and into 2011 as demand dwindles and interest rates continue to rise.
