Economic update for the week ending August 5, 2023

Stock markets dropped this week – Stocks dropped, and bond yields rose after Fitch, one of the “big three” rating agencies downgraded the U.S. debt rating from AAA to AA+. That marked only the second downgrade of U.S. credit in history. Fitch cited political infighting and debt concerns. While that was mostly ignored by stock market investors, U.S. Treasury bond investors paid attention and bond yields rose to the highest levels of the year.  Friday’s release of the July jobs report was a mixed bag. While new job gains moderated, the unemployment rate dropped to 3.5%, that’s near a 60-year low. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the week at 35,065.62, down 1.2% from 35,459.29 last week. It is up 5.8% year-to-date. The S&P 500 closed the week at 4,478.03, down 2.3% from 4,582.23 last week.  It is up 16.6% year-to-date. The Nasdaq closed the week at 13,909.24, down 2.8% from 14,316.66 last week. It is up 32.9% year-to-date in our weekly economic update.

U.S. Treasury bond yields – The 10-year treasury bond closed the week yielding 4.05%, up from 3.96% last week. The 30-year treasury bond yield ended the week at 4.21%, up from 4.03% last week. We watch bond yields because mortgage rates follow bond yields.

Mortgage rates – The Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Survey reported that mortgage rates for the most popular loan products as of August 3, 2023, were as follows: The 30-year fixed mortgage rate was 6.90%, up from 6.81% last week. The 15-year fixed was 6.25%, up from 6.11% last week.

To conclude our weekly economic update, Job growth slowed and unemployment dropped to near a 60-year low in July – The Department of Labor and Statistics reported that 187,000 new full-time jobs were added in July. That was below economists’ expectations of 200,000 new jobs. The unemployment rate fell to 3.5% in July, down from 3.6% in June. It’s at its lowest level in almost 60 years.  Average hourly wages increased 4.4% from one year ago. The labor-force participation rate (the share of workers with a job or actively looking for a job) remained at 62.6% for the fifth consecutive month.  It was 63.4% level before the pandemic.


California Existing-home Sales

California existing-home sales – The number of single-family homes sold in June declined 21% year-over-year.

The California Association of Realtors reported that existing-home sales totaled 344,970 on a seasonally adjusted annualized rate in June, down 8.4% from May, and down 20.9% from last June. Excluding two months during the pandemic shutdown, this marked the fewest number of homes closed escrow in a month since April 2008. Existing-home sales through June are down 10.9% from the number of homes sold in the first half of 2021.

The statewide median price paid for a home in June was $863,790, up 5.4% from $819,630 in June 2021.

There was a 2.5-month supply of homes for sale in June, up from a 2.1-month supply of homes for sale in May, and a 1.7-month supply in June 2021. While up slightly a 2.5-month supply is still a low level. A normal market has a 5–6-month supply of homes on the market.

We have seen more homes come on the market in the past few weeks. Perhaps sellers feel that prices have topped out. Those listings are selling quickly if they are priced correctly. The vast majority of the homes sold are still receiving multiple offers, but they are not receiving the number of offers that they would have received a couple of months ago. We are seeing two to four offers, not twenty! The homes priced too high are sitting. Once reduced to the correct price those are selling as well, but not with the excitement and urgency a new listing gets.   I expect that the number of sales will increase from the anemic number of sales we saw in June because of the increased number of new listings hitting the market. June should be the fewest number of sales we see in a month for a long time. That’s what I am seeing on the street.

Home Tips: How to Tastefully Add Retro Style to Your Home

Style trends shift every couple of years within the realm of interior design. Whether you are looking to remodel or outfit a completely new home, it is imperative to stay on top of the current fad to ensure your home feels fresh. Fresh doesn’t always imply modernity, however, as retro styles are making a massive comeback. While the pure definition of what constitutes “retro” is not completely clear cut, retro-style within interior design generally refers to décor, typically refers to pieces from the 1950s to the 1970s.

What is Retro Style?

Due to the approximately 30-year range retro style consists of, this trend incorporates a wide variety of textures and colors. The diversity of textures that the retro style comprises is one of its defining traits. Be sure to include soft vinyl, polished plastics, and velvet fabric in every room. Furthermore, avocado green, mustard yellow, red, pink, white, black, and brown are colors central to the retro experience. Pieces with a combination of these colors are perfect for your retro-style home and are sure to stand out. Floors are customarily either hardwood or checkered designs.

In the living room, sprawling velvet sofas with multi-colored pillows are commonplace as the space’s focal point. Classic chairs and ottomans are also vital to the retro living room experience. On the floor, a shag carpet is frequently featured. Finally, a wooden coffee table is ordinarily placed in the center of the room, surrounded by the sofa, chairs, and ottomans.

The bedroom of a retro-style home starts with the style of bed. A wide variety of bedding options fit the theme; however, it is essential that colors and textures focal to the trend are used. Additionally, a retro-style bench in front of the bed is prevalent. Abstract art on the wall above the bed is another great touch in making the room have a true retro feel.

In the office, a wooden desk and velvet office chair are customary. A minimalistic floor lamp with square shades next to the desk provides light for the individual working at it. A typewriter for show can also bring the retro aesthetic to the next level.

Implementing Retro Into the Modern Day

While the retro style is trendy at the moment, it can also be overdone. To avoid this, a combination of retro and modern décor pieces is the way to go. For example, checkered flooring can fit perfectly within a modern kitchen. Moreover, combining a retro sofa with a sleek modern coffee table in the living room can create a stark yet pleasing contrast. Finally, using retro colors on modern pieces of furniture is a perfect way to combine the two styles. There is no perfectly defined way to outfit your home with a combination of modern and retro; you should simply draw elements from both to avoid one style overtaking the other.

With redesigning a home comes purchasing the furnishings themselves. If you are looking to install authentic and retro style within your home, you can purchase furniture from the time period from antique shops or online stores such as Etsy. For those seeking to ditch the thrifting and obtain newer pieces styled after the time period, La Brea’s furniture district would be our go-to.
