http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  There are no economic data to report today; however, there was a 10 year Treasury, which went well and helped the MBS Market.  Earlier in the day, Pfizer and BioNTech reported that the 3rd shot greatly increases the vaccinated from deadly variants, including Omicron.  This helped to push stocks this morning, but at the expense of MBS/Treasuries.  However, the 10 year Treasury Auction went well; and then we saw some improvement with MBS and Yields.  MBS is currently Up 3bps, but was Down approximately approximately 17bps early on.  When ratesheets came out, they were at the lows of the day; so, Mortgage Rates will show worse pricing today.  However, with the recent developments (and if the Market convinces the Market it will stay up), then you may see ...

We recently posted about the home prices for November in the Hollywood Riviera.  Two key metrics we've been following is whether homes are selling for under or over the list prices and also how long homes are sitting on the market. Decisions can be made from these numbers....what's the market doing, where's it heading....is it a buyer's market or seller's market?Sometimes one or two sales in a month can dramatically skew these number's however, and don't paint an accurate picture of market conditions. The Hollywood Riviera in November was a perfect example. Unlike recent months the average "sold" prices were actually lower than the "list" price.  Average days on market was also 70 for the homes that sold which is well higher than previous months.  Both potentially indicate that the mark...

The Granada Hills Real Estate Market was very active during November with 37 homes closed escrow Most homes sold above the original asking price, got multiple offers after a couple of days of the listing hitting the market, since there are so many buyers looking to buy a homes in that area.Home buyers with children choose to buy a house in Granada Hills because some of their public schools are rated 8 and above. Most of the areas are residential, with very few apartment buildings. The Petit park is big with enough room to play different sports, pool, library and more#granadahills, #granadahillsrealestate, #granadahillshomesforsale, #granadahillsrealestatemarket

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  Today, we get the final reading for both the Productivity and Labor Costs for the 3rd Quarter.  Productivity dropped 5.2%; and Labor Costs spiked upward to 9.6%.  The latter is an index closely watched by the Fed, whom have already indicated a shift in policy in their upcoming FOMC.  This new report will only add more incentive for the Fed to react quickly to stave off out of control inflation.  Tomorrow, we'll have the 10 year Treasury Auction, which can impact Mortgage Rates, as we watch for any appetite from Investors.  Currently, MBS is Down 16pbs, so Mortgage Rates have worsened again today, as Investors are shifting their investment funds away from Bonds back to Equities.  Yields are also rising as a result, as they are currently just under 1.47...

        Santa Barbara’s own Foo Fighter, Chris Shiflett, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the group this year!       Recently, Santa Barbara’s weekly rag the Independent featured Chris on their cover and the week’s cover story was written by Marko DeSantis a longtime friend.  They both grew up in Santa Barbara, and at one time, were in competing Punk bands.  The WASPs and the KITTENZ!  Eventually, they merged into the same band and that’s where this story begins. It’s a lot of fun and a good read.         Rather than continue to babble on the links to the article and a secondary link to the Independent’s staff’s interview of Marko DeSantis are included below.  Love the Foo Fighters! They’re keeping Rock and Roll alive!Santa Barbara’s Own Foo Fighter lead guitarist C...

Thanksgiving may be over, but the spirit of giving should never end. We only have 19 days until we celebrate Christmas Day. While you run around conducting your errands for Christmas dinner, add a few extra items to your grocery cart. Then, consider donating them to one of the Ventura food pantries. Your heart fills with joy when helping others. A couple of other ways to get you into the Christmas spirit could be going to see the Ventura Tree Lighting or watching the Parade of Lights.Ventura Tree LightingThis Friday, December 10th, Downtown Ventura lights up the Christmas tree located right outside of the Mission. Starting at 6 pm, gather 'round the tree. At dusk, they flip the switch on the lights. I hear that Santa promises to make an appearance around 7 pm. But he can only stay for a...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  There's no economic data released today, but the big report to watch for, will be on Friday, which is the CPI.  The last time CPI was reported, then there was a fairly big spike, which the Markets reacted very negatively.  So beware!  The Markets are taking their cues from the weekend's news, which includes recent reports on the the Omicron variant, which may appear to be more mild than past variants.  Also, China's PBOC reduced the reserve requirements for their banks; and Evergrande is coming clean that it may not be able to repay their creditors.  Currently, MBS is currently Down 16bps, as investment dollars leave bonds back to equities today.  Mortgage Rates have worsened slightly from Friday's close.  Yields have jumped up to just under 1.44%.Ple...

Holiday Honey Lebkuchen  I've written about our family's decades-long holiday tradition of cookie making, using a recipe passed down from my wife's family for a number of generations. This year our younger daughter and her family (the 2 grandkids are 6+ and 4) visited for Thanksgiving. I mixed the dough on Wednesday (it stays refrigerated for days without a problem) and Saturday was the big day.  It's a several hour project typically, especially with kids involved, and this year yielded around 17 dozen cookies, in the traditional diamond shapes along with the kids using cookie cutters for other shapes - angels, snowflakes, snowmen and more. The photo was taken from the upstairs landing but I couldn't quite get the entire table-full - you get the idea!
