http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The IHS Markit PMI released it's 2 reports: Manufacturing and Services.  The Services dropped from 70.4 in May to 64.8 in June; however, it's Manufacturing rose from 62.1 in May to 62.6 in June.  New Home Sales dropped 5.9% in May, as it's April numbers were revised lower (from 863k seasonally adjusted annualized units to 817k).  In May, it was reported down to 769k.  All of these reports today indicate an ongoing issue with labor shortages.  Stocks are in Mixed Territory, as the DOW is barely in the Red.  The Market didn't have much impact from Fed Chair Powell's Testimony yesterday, as both he and the other Fed Speakers tip-toed along the same message.  MBS is currently Down about 5bps, which isn't enough for any changes to our pricing for Mortgage ...

 Should you buy a Sherman Oaks, Ca condo or a townhome for sale?  Let us compare a condominium and a townhome.  According to Realtor.com, "townhouses are defined  as single-family dwellings with at least two floors that share a wall with another house".  In the Sherman Oaks, Ca area- most people would expect for a townhome to be a multi-level unit that has a private, attached garage for parking and/or storage. Condos typically have detached parking spots that are assigned to the unit, inside of a subterranean garage, parking lot, or carport.   Are Sherman Oaks condominium and townhome units attached or detached? A townhouse usually shares attached walls with neighbors on either side, however there are no units located above or below you. Condos may be one-story with other units above, b...

Red, White and BOOM 4th of July Fireworks & More ~ Carlsbad and Nearby ~ The July 4th holiday is around the corner, summer is here, and we can expect celebrations and fireworks in and around Carlsbad, along with private festivities, cookouts, and picnics.  There will be plenty of people at the beach and lots of gatherings now that things have opened up, and it should be a very different holiday than we experienced in 2020 with so many cancelations. Schools are out, the summer crowds are picking up, restaurants are open and no doubt getting more crowded, and public parking at the beaches, and in the Village, will be harder to find, especially on the holiday weekend. But what a great time of year!  Red, White and BOOM at Legoland This popular annual celebration with fireworks takes place ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Existing Home Sales dropped in May from 5.85 million annualized units in April to 5.80 million.  However, this is better than the 5.72 million forecast.  Stocks are Up again today before Fed Chair Powell testifies before the House Sub-Committee this afternoon.  He did release an early statement that was similar to Fed Williams' comments yesterday on the timeline of a ratehike.  It was stressed that the Fed feels that inflation is transitory and they will take the time to make sure Jobs are in stable ground before raising rates, which will take time (in other words, it won't come as soon as many Investors feared).  MBS is Up 16bps and back to same levels as Friday's close; so, Mortgage Rates have improved.  Yields had broke above the Technical leve...

Carlsbad Homes for Sale without HOA Fees~ Update as of June 21, 2021 ~ Many Carlsbad buyers have feelings about buying a home in a Home Ownership Association (HOA) community.  Some buyers want to live in a community with an HOA, while others are adamant about avoiding them. And some buyers are OK either way, with finding the right house being a more important factor than having an HOA or not. There are a number of things home buyers should know about living in an HOA in Carlsbad, including the monthly fees; certain issues result in buyers deciding an HOA community is not for them, rules and regulations and monthly fees probably being deciding factors.  If you unsure about whether you want an HOA community of not, it’s essential to do your due diligence regarding HOAs and understand the ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  There are no Economic data on the calendar to report today; however, there are a number of other data throughout the week that may  make some impact (including PCE, GDP, Housing data, etc...).  The Markets are following last week's hawkish tone set by the Fed and it's members.  Stocks are in Positive Territory today after a lot of selling last week.  Portfolio Managers are repositioning their assets as they head into a new Quarter.  We have a few Fed Members speaking today, including Bullard whose comments disrupted the Markets on Friday.  Investors may be interested in Fed Williams' thoughts, whom will be speaking later this afternoon.  Currently, MBS is Down 19bps (off from much earlier lows); but, it's enough for some worsening in Mortgage Rates (c...

When Governor Newsom lifted the mask mandate last week, Californians rejoiced. Residents and visitors to Ventura get to enjoy local events like Steel Drum Saturdays and Live Music Sundays without any face coverings. And with temperatures beginning to heat up, that makes it even more pleasant. Last year, most Ventura County cities canceled their fireworks displays due to COVID concerns. This year, we see a return of normalcy (of sorts). Here is a list of some of the places you can catch Ventura County fireworks shows for the July 4th weekend this year.Ventura County Fireworks Shows and MoreCamarilloThis Ventura County fireworks show is scheduled to start at 9 pm on Sunday, July 4th, at Camarillo Park.
