The Federal Reserve said that U.S. industrial output fell in August for the first time since January as Hurricane Harvey battered oil, gas and chemical plants along the Gulf Coast and a cool summer sapped utility demand in the east. Overall industrial production fell 0.9% over the month after an increase in July that was revised upward to 0.4%.
The Commerce Department announced that U.S. retail sales unexpectedly fell in August as motor vehicle purchases fell, suggesting that consumer spending has moderated in the third quarter. Retail sales fell 0.2% last month. Data for July was revised to show an increase of 0.3% against the previously reported 0.6%. Apparently, Hurricane Harvey was to blame, again.
Equifax reported that potentially 143 million could be effected by the data breach, which it said was discovered on July 29. CNBC report that SEC filings show that three Equifax executives sold nearly $2 million in shares in the company days after the cyberattack was discovered. It was unclear whether their share sales had anything to do with the breach.

Contract Ratio:  21.90. The average over the last year is 28.4.
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $255.75 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $247.61 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $239.90 per square foot.
More listings again this week, as higher prices attract sellers, and less purchasing activity so the Contract Ratio has declined.
In an effort for "reducing appraisal turnaround times", and compete with one-click Amazon.com, Fannie Mae has refined its appraisal policies. Please read the article here.
It will come as no surprise to anyone out house hunting today — buying a home is becoming ever more difficult to afford.
According to CoreLogic, home prices continue upwards and incomes fail to keep pace. Even historically low mortgage rates are not helping. Corelogic say that, at the end of July, of the top 50 markets, based on housing stock, 46% were overvalued. A market is considered overvalued when home prices are at least 10% higher than the long-term, sustainable level. Of the other markets in their survey, 16% were listed as undervalued and 38% fairly valued.
The National Association of Realtors said that home prices rose by 6.7% in July, compared with the same month a year ago. A record shortage of inventory keeps driving prices up. NAR say the supply measured at the end of July was 9% lower compared with a year ago, and has been shrinking steadily for nearly three years.

Contract Ratio:  24.60. The average over the last year is 28.6.
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $251.86 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $247.42 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $239.60 per square foot.
An active week with 27 new listings, 30 going under contract, and 12 closings.
The Labor Department announced that the unemployment rate rose from 4.3% to 4.4%. The estimate of job growth in June and July was revised down by a combined 41,000, leaving an average monthly gain this year of 176,000. Employers added 156,000 jobs in August and held back on pay rises for most employees.
The jobs report was interpreted as pointing to an economy that is still steadily generating jobs, but more slowly than it did earlier in its recovery. With the economy now in its ninth year of expansion and unemployment near a 16-year low, fewer people are looking for work and fewer jobs are being filled. Few analysts expressed concern about the slower gain as August figures can be unpredictable as employers are looking towards the end of the year. It is difficult to factor these changes into the August employment data.
The University of Michigan's consumer sentiment index rose to 96.8 in August from 93.4 in July. Market commentators were expecting 97.4.
The Commerce Department announced that construction spending fell 0.6% to $1.21 trillion as investment on public sector projects fell. This is the lowest level since October 2016 and follows a downwardly revised 1.4% in June.

That was the lowest level since the week ended Feb. 25 when claims fell to 227,000, which in turn was the best reading since March 1973. Data for the prior week was unrevised. The tightening in the labor market might encourage the Federal Reserve to consider starting to reduce its massive bond portfolio.

The National Association of Realtors keeps a lot of data on housing. A recent phenomena they have poited out concerns how long on average people stay in their home. For the whole country, between 1985 and 2008, that has been six years. Since the housing collapse, things have improved and Corelogic says that 93.9% of homes with mortgages are now in a positive equity situation, and 78.8% of them have positive equity.
