Closed Escrow:      8     Average: 9.2  (Sold; Closed Escrow)

Contract Ratio:  40.20. The average over the last year is 34.10. 
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $290.41 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $322.61 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $275.69 per square foot. 
Stock markets closed at all-time highs on Friday as it appeared, from testimony given by a top Federal Reserve official, that a cut in rates was imminent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 27,332.03; the S&P 500 at 3,013.77, and The Nasdaq Composite at 8,244.14.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the U.S. consumer price index rose 0.1% in June (seasonally adjusted), and 1.6% over the year (not seasonally adjusted). Core CPI (the index less food and energy) rose 0.3% in June after 0.2% in May. The year-on-year increase was 2.1%. 
The CPI numbers were somewhat of a surprise to the Bond Markets, and yields on US Treasuries rose, with the 2-year at around 1.85%; the 5-year at around 1.87%; the 10-year at around 2.12% and the 30-year at around 2.65%.
In response to questions from the Senate Banking Committee, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell suggested that the nation has fallen into a severe housing shortage, and homebuilders are struggling to increase production due to high costs for labor and materials. The labor situation is exacerbated by the fact that thousands of skilled workers left the construction industry, following the housing crash that began in 2008, and never returned.

New Listings:         12    Average: 17.7  (New Listings; Back on Market)
Under Contract:     27    Average: 21.1  (Active-Contingency Removal; Pending-Take Backup; Pending) 
Closed Escrow:     13     Average: 9.3  (Sold; Closed Escrow) 
Off Market:               8     Average:   5.5  (Canceled; Expired; Temporary Off Market)
Price Reductions:         6     Average  10.2
Price Increases:            2     Average    0.8
 
Contract Ratio:  40.30. The average over the last year is 34.30. 
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $290.57 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $321.59 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $275.37 per square foot. 
Please look at just the yearly averages, above, New Listings, Under Contract, Closed, and Off Market. While some homes come off market, and some then either go back on or are re-listed, and some homes go under contract, but may fall out of escrow, the general trend is obvious, and underlies the shortage of inventory and rising values.
The Labor Department announced that nonfarm payrolls increased by 224,000 jobs in June. This is the best number since January and seems to allay the fears the concerns that the economy was beginning to weaken. An increase in the labor force participation caused the unemployment rate to increase to 3.7%. Average hourly earnings rose 0.2%, slightly below market expectations, but, over the last year, wages have risen 3.1%.
The stronger jobs performance cast doubt on the idea that Federal Reserve would move to reduce rates in the near term in order to avoid a widely expected economic slow down this year. This news caused the Stock market to marginally pull back from its recent record highs. At the ned of the week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 26,922.12; the S&P 500 at 2990.41, and the Nasdaq at 8,161.79.
US Treasury Yields rose sharply. The 2-year closed at 1.87%; the 5-year at 1.84%; the 10-year at 2.04%, and the 30-year at 2.54%. Before the nonfarm payrolls numbers, Freddie Mac said that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.75% with an average 0.6 points. This was marginally higher than the previous week's number of an average 3.73%. At this time a year ago, the rate was 4.52%.

The belief that the next move will be for the Fed to reduce interest rates has now also become politically tempered, and now markets believe the Fed will not make a move next week. Commentators point to the need to avoid having an effect on the up-coming G-20 and a potential U.S. China trade agreement. Avoiding the appearance of being influenced by the President, and avoiding the appearance that their previous rate increase was a mistake.
Kevin Hassett, the Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers believes that the U.S. economy will grow 3% this year. Market opinion suggests that we will see 2% for second-quarter gross domestic product growth. However, with the rise in the May Retail Sales, plus an upward revision in the previous month's numbers, and an increase in U.S. manufacturing output in May, the first monthly gain this year, the concerns about the softening of the economy seem to have faded.
U.S. government debt yields were little changed on Friday as investors wait for any policy change from the Federal Reserve. The yield on the 2-year note was around 2.02%; the 5-year 1.84%; the 10-year 2.08%, and the 30-year bond 2.59%.

The set back in the job market meant that investors believe that the Federal Reserve will move to cut rates this year, as early as next month. The 2-year Treasury note, which reflects Fed policy, was yielding 1.78% yesterday morning, well below the 2.25% reached in late May. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was down to 2.06%, and the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was down to around 2.57%.
