http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Philly Fed Index rose from 15.4 in December to 23.2 in January. This index gauges the business/manufacturing in the Philadelphia region.  This is good news based on the contraction in the NY region that was released earlier this week.  Jobless Claims spiked to 286k last week, which should not be a surprise, as this is rather common at this time of year.  This is due to the seasonal workers (from the Holidays) being let go from their jobs.  Lastly, the Existing Home Sales dropped 4.6% in December, as it went from 6.48 seasonally adjusted annualized units in November to 6.18 million in December.  Stocks are Up today as Yields seem to be showing some improvement and more companies release their Q4 Earnings Reports.  We'll touch on Yields shortly!  Me...

My real estate career began in November of 1996.  That year marked the start of the transition from Dot Matrix to reliance up the internet.  The good thing for me is I never really had to learn the dot matrix system and my career aligned with the innovation of the internet.  I became the go to agent for those that had been in the business for many years.The internet began a Paradigm switch in real estate as well as life in general.  There were, at one time, huge books that were printed once a month with all of the listing for sale in the MLS.  There would be an update sent out during the month as well.These MLS Listing books disappeared within about a year after all listing were available online on the internet.  This change made us Realtors the kings of real estate as we could answer q...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The MBA Mortgage Loan Activity Report released their data (which comes out every Wednesday) and indicated that Home Buyers jumped this past week, as Mortgage Rates continue to rise.  Seems like rising Mortgage Rates are incentivizing Home Buyers to get off the fence; however, they're disincentivizing refinances, as we saw a drop week-over-week.  Housing Starts rose from 1.678 million seasonally adjusted annualized units in November to 1.702 million in December.  A 1.4% rise month-over-month.  Also, Building Permits (future Housing Start) rose 9.1%, which went from 1.717 million seasonally adjusted annualized units in November to 1.873 million in December.  It will be interesting to see it's January's numbers, as we found out yesterday that there was a...
