Quick Market Update

Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets.

Reports on retail sales, housing and industrial production offer a favorable view of growth for Q2. Continued expansion supports a Fed rate increase.
This week's jobless claims are lower than expected, further supporting growth. The strong labor market is a pillar of the improving economy.
Comments by Fed policymakers also point to a nearing Fed policy rate increase. Economists speculate we may see an increase as soon as June.

New home sales surged to an 8-year high in April, jumping 16.6%. Prices for new homes also hit a record high, as tight inventory continues to drive up prices.
Millennials aren't just buying homes; they're selling them too. NAR reports that the number of agents under 30 years old has increased from 2% to 5% since last year.
Pending home sales were up 5.1% in April, hitting the highest levels in a decade. Demand continues to soar, fueled by an improving economy and low rates.
