Jim’s Corner – Market Updates

Jim Chapman Communities President, Jim Chapman, regularly comes across interesting news about the market. For this reason, JCC would like to present Jim’s Corner, a division of our blog dedicated to interesting information Jim would like to share with our investors, homeowners and fans. Enjoy!

To help the economy succeed, the Fed is certainly using its ability to the max. Coming out of the FOMC meeting Wednesday, September 21st, the Fed announced “Operation Twist” – a strategy of selling its short-term securities to buy long-term bonds to drive down long term interest rates, especially for mortgages. This latest Fed effort to help the housing market is great news for anyone thinking of buying a home, as mortgage rates should stay very very low.

Wednesday’s other great news for housing was August Existing Home Sales came in UP 7.7%, to an annual rate just the other side of 5 million units, the best reading since March. This dropped the supply of existing homes to 8.5 months. Tuesday, August Housing Starts were down 5%, to a 571,000 unit annual rate. But, hey, dealing with a hurricane and floods, builders across a good part of the East were hesitant to break ground. Better news came with building permits – UP 3.2% for the month and now UP 7.8% versus a year ago. As for the long dormant consumer, here are some more good economic signs. Same-store sales were UP 3.4% versus a year ago, as measured by the International Council of Shopping Centers. Redbook Research reported an even better 4.1% boost in same-store sales. Then, some economists said they expect consumer spending to climb at a 1.5%–2% annual rate in Q3. The economy may not be booming, but it’s not double-dipping back into recession either.
