Jerome Powell nominated for Federal Reserve's top job

There has been a high amount of financial and fiscal policy news and wanted to share with you one item which has the most affect on our business.

Fed Chairman nominee has been named as Jerome Powell... what does this mean to us and the real estate community? He is widely expected to continue the current administrations policy of slow and predictable interest rate increases. This means that we should not expect to see a fast and large increase in the rates in a short amount of time. It will be predictable and gradual... this will allow to markets to normalize and although rates will rise as anticipated the consumer will most likely not see a jump in their interest rate between pre approval and going under agreement that can scare many buyers away.

President Trump on Thursday nominated Federal Reserve governor Jerome Powell as the next leader of the world's most influential central bank. Powell will replace current Fed Chair Janet Yellen.

NAR Midyear Forecast: Existing-Home Sales Poised to Climb 3.5 Percent in 2017

Friends -- This news is just out: This year is expected to be the best year for home selling/buying since 2006. Who do you know who needs to sell their home?

From the article below: ". . . . The first quarter was the best quarterly existing sales pace in exactly a decade (5.62 million), and Yun expects activity to stay on track and finish around 5.64 million – the best since 2006 (6.47 million) and 3.5 percent above 2016. With several metro areas seeing hefty price growth, the national median existing-home price is expected to rise around 5 percent this year."

The multi-year stretch of robust job gains and improving household confidence are expected to guide existing-home sales to a decade high in 2017.
