Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets.
|The Fed didn't raise policy rates at this month's FOMC meeting but is expected to raise rates in December. Mortgage rates will likely remain unaffected.|
|The midterm election results are not expected to slow economic growth. As a result, the outcome did not adversely affect stock and bond markets either.|
|Manufacturing activity slipped for a second month in September yet still pointed to growth. Construction spending was up slightly at 0.1%.|
|Year-over-year purchase applications have held steady despite rising rates, falling 0.2% last week.|
|Last month, consumer housing sentiment fell to its lowest level in a year. Fewer consumers expect home prices to rise or mortgage rates to fall.|
|A recent study shows Gen Z is eager to get an early start on homeownership. They're twice as likely as previous generations to start saving for a home by age 25.|
