Posted To: MBS CommentaryBonds Looking Better This Week, But Risks Remain Today's release of FHFA's home price index showed a sharp acceleration in price growth, with the annual total at 8.0% by the end of August. If prices completely stopped moving up in Sept, that puts new conforming loan limits on pace for $545k+. Meanwhile, with a 2nd straight day of gains, the bond market is making case for a supportive shift, but risks remain.

The second quarter saw the highest level for homeownership since the second quarter of 2008. Homeownership in the third quarter, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, was 67.4 percent, 0.5-point decrease from the previous period, but up from 64.8 percent in the third quarter of 2019.

The rate was highest in the Midwest and South at 71.2 percent and 70.8 percent and substantially lower in the Northeast (62.0 percent) and West (62.1 percent). All four regions posted annual increases. The rate increased for all age groups. Those under the age of 35 jumped from 37.5 percent in the third quarter...(read more)
Posted To: MBS CommentaryWe'll start off with more of an industry-specific curiosity (as opposed to diving right into markets/rates). Then again, the conforming loan limit is a key consideration for rates, and it will be updated in less than a month! Today's FHFA home price data was the 2nd to last month needed to calculate the annual change in home prices (which FHFA relies on to determine new loan limits). But it's not quite as easy as just looking at the headline 8.0% annual growth. Loan limits are based on FHFA's expanded data set that is only released quarterly. Fortunately , that expanded data set tends to fall very close to the Home Price Index headlines. We'll get September's data (and thus the quarterly number) next month. We got August today, and it was very strong. But do you really...(read more)
