It has been a busy week in economic news, with the approval of the debt ceiling bill and the release of strong jobs numbers. Now that the debt ceiling debate is behind us, mortgage rates have started to decrease. Here are the key highlights from this week:


Strong Jobs Numbers Reported for May: In May, the U.S. gained an impressive 390,000 payroll jobs, nearly double the pre-pandemic average. This confirms that significant parts of the economy are thriving despite the Federal Reserve's aggressive interest rate increases. However, there are some underlying details beneath the headline number that may indicate potential weaknesses in the labor market. The unemployment rate rose by three-tenths of a percentage point, from 3.4% to 3.7%. This level of change, except during the onset of the pandemic, has not been seen in over a decade since the sluggish recovery from the 2007-2009 recession.


New Home Sales Increase for the Second Month in a Row: Builders benefited from the limited inventory of existing homes in April, prompting more buyers to turn to new construction as an alternative. Sales of new homes rose by 4.1% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 683,000 in April. This represents the highest pace since March 2022, with an 11.8% increase compared to the same period last year. While builder incentives continue to motivate buyers towards new construction, their utilization by builders is becoming less common as housing demand stabilizes.


Mortgage Rates Start to Decline Due to Debt Ceiling Resolution: For the week ending on June 2, 2023, the average 30-year fixed rate mortgage (FRM) declined by 17 basis points to 6.98% compared to the previous week. In May, rates had been increasing due to concerns over the debt ceiling. However, now that the House and Senate have passed the debt ceiling bill, mortgage rates have started to come down.
