On the fence about Purchasing a Home?

November 19, 2013
Since you’re thinking of purchasing a new home, I thought it would be a great time to pass along some of the financial benefits of home ownership:

Mortgage interest and property taxes are usually 100% deductible
Homes typically appreciate over time
Builds equity
Increases borrowing power since a home’s equity is typically used to secure other loans or lines of credit

These are just a few of the financial perks of owning a home—there are plenty more. I’m ready to assist you to get into your new home, so when the time is right, feel free to get in touch.

It was a relatively quiet week for mortgage rates. A slightly more bullish economic outlook from the Fed and stronger than expected manufacturing data were the main influences this week. Good news for the economy is negative for mortgage rates, however, and rates ended the week a little higher.

As widely expected, there was no change in Fed policy at Wednesday’s Fed meeting, but Fed officials slightly upgraded their outlook for the economy from the prior statement. Fed officials again stated that they intend to wait for signs of sustained improvement in the labor market before they reduce their bond purchases. The consensus view is that the Fed will begin to scale back its bond purchases in April. The statement left the door open for an earlier start of the taper if the economic data is strong enough.

Early in the week, there were few surprises in the economic data and little movement in rates. That changed, though, when stronger than expected manufacturing data pushed mortgage rates higher on Thursday and Friday. The October ISM national manufacturing index rose to the highest level since April 2011, and the October Chicago PMI regional manufacturing index jumped to the highest level since March 2011. The consensus forecasts had been for lower readings due to the government shutdown at the beginning of the month. Investors will be watching to see if other sectors of the economy were similarly unaffected by the shutdown.


Core CPI inflation was just 1.7% higher than one year ago
The Capacity Utilization Rate rose to the highest level since July 2008
Eurozone unemployment remained at a record high level of 12.2%
Oil prices dropped to the lowest level in four months


Two big reports will dominate the economic news next week. Third quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the broadest measure of economic growth, will be released on Thursday. The Employment report will come out on Friday. As usual, this data on the number of jobs, the Unemployment Rate, and wage inflation will be the most highly anticipated economic data of the month, and it will carry even more weight than normal due to how it will influence Fed policy. Core PCE inflation, Personal Income, and Consumer Sentiment also will be released on Friday. ISM Services, Factory Orders, Leading Indicators, and the Trade Balance are scheduled earlier in the week. Mortgage markets will be closed on Monday in observance of Veterans Day.
