Market Update

Last week’s economic news was mixed. American households’ personal income declined, and with it their spending in the final two months of last year. Despite the deceleration, the U.S. economy still managed to grow in Q4-2022. Looking forward, all signs point to an economy that’s slowing and concerns of a weaker economy in 2023 persist. That said, rates continue to moderate, and housing prices have softened as a result of a less competitive market, so affordability conditions are improving and bringing some buyers back into the market. Recent releases show an uptick in pending sales, new homes sales, and mortgage activity.

Key Read for the Week
“In the second half of last year, a lot of consumers just went to the sidelines,” said Jeffrey Mezger, chief executive of home builder KB Home. “[Buyers] are out there—they’re just paused on their decision.” from the WSJ/Realtor.com Housing Index.
