For the Week Ending August 5, 2016

Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets
Jobless claims were once again below 300,000, signaling a healthy labor market. Labor market strength contributes to more spending on goods and services.
 
Consumer spending rose in June, suggesting a strengthening economy.Personal consumption accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity.
 
Despite healthy consumer spending, the Commerce Department showed inflation is still muted. Lack of inflation helps to keep interest rates low.

Buyers show an unprecedented demand for bigger homes. An increased number of homes built in 2014 had more bedrooms, more bathrooms, and bigger garages.

A new trend in kitchen design is to use mixed colors in cabinetry and countertops. A recent survey found 42% of remodelers used multiple colors.
Home price reports show nationwide prices up 5.7% year-over- year in June. Prices are expected to continue to increase at a healthy rate for the next year.
"Do you believe in life after death?" the boss asked one of his employees.
"Yes, Sir." the employee replied.
"Well, then, that makes everything just fine," the boss went on. "After you left
early yesterday to go to your grandmother's funeral, she stopped in to see you."
