I have never seen two Federal entities make such a mess in my life. The Federal Reserve and The Federal government.
The good news? The 10-year Treasury yield is down -12.9 BPS this morning generally resulting in lower 30-year mortgage rates. Of course, the reason why the 10-yield is falling is generally bad news.
The bad news? US New Home Sales fell -16.6% MoM in April as mortgage rates skyrocketed.
Since the installation of Joe Biden as President, new home sales have plunged -31.2%, mortgage rates are up 88.9%, and framing lumber prices are up 29.2%.
Biden is out there bragging about rising energy prices which he views as a necessity to force the conversion of America to electric cars and trucks. Biden is the first President in history to gloat over the suffering of American households.
Under Biden, regular gasoline prices are up 92%, diesel prices are up 111%, and CRB Foodstuffs are up 61%.
Say, framing lumber for housing is cheaper than food. Maybe Biden will suggest Americans transform to being beavers and gnaw on wood.
One thought on “US New Home Sales Down -32% Under Biden While Mortgage Rates Are Up 89%, Framing Wood Up 21.4% (New Home Sales Down -16.6% For April)”
