Fun Fact Friday: Mortgage, Employment, Housing. [#DHallTheINSIDER]

Mortgage Applications for last week were up 1.4% overall, with purchases up 3% and refinances down 0.4%.

Initial Jobless Claims for last week were reported higher than expectations, coming in at 248K.

The ADP Employment Report posted 158K jobs created in June, missing expectations of 185K by 27K. This is still considered a strong report.

The BLS Jobs Report beat estimates of 179K by 43K, posting 222K jobs in June. April and May were both revised higher.

Local news:

  • Oakland county is the largest housing market in the state, with just over 6K homes listed for sale; followed by Washtenaw County with about 2,200 homes listed.
  • Grand Rapids has an average of 23.9 days on the market.

The number of Americans who believe now is a good time to sell has hit a record high for the second consecutive month in June. Thirty-nine percent believe such, compared to 30% who believe it’s a good time to buy. We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: it’s a good time to sell AND buy right now.

Hall Financial (NMLS #1467435) was formed in early 2016, founded on a common mission: to be the most client focused mortgage company in the industry’s history. We were going to stop the trend of treating homeowners and homebuyers as transactions and instead, welcome them as family. We were going to treat them like the queen of England. Here, we bring you up to speed and keep you in the know with the latest housing news, home trends, and more!
