Local Market Monitor’s National Economic Outlook for February 2024


Although inflation is easing and the stock market keeps rising, the outlook for the economy as a whole has not improved The creation of new jobs – after subtracting covid re-hires in healthcare and government – is languishing at no better than a 1 percent annual rate Home builders stopped hiring and are laying staff off Manufacturers are not hiring Companies are shedding temporary workers at a high rate And the hiring of computer systems engineers has fallen sharply

The US economy depends heavily on consumer spending, but the weakness in new job creation indicates that demand for a lot of products has slowed This isn’t a surprise, consumer incomes were artificially boosted during the covid epidemic by government payments – which have come to an end The surge of inflation for basics like food and gas, even if it’s now moderating, hurt consumer ’ s attitudes as much as their bank accounts And the surge in prices of home and new cars put them beyond the reach of most people

The worry for 2024 is that consumers will stop spending Consumer debt per person has already reached a high plateau, you can only charge so much before you or your bank decides to stop The various crises in the world have a depressing effect And the boom in home prices could easily end in a bust

In January, jobs increased 1 9 percent over last year, including increases of 2 8 percent in construction, 0 3 percent in manufacture, 1 percent in retail, 1 1 percent in finance, 1 percent in business services, 4 3 percent in healthcare, 1 9 percent at restaurants, and 2 7 percent in government

Mortgage Delinquency Rates by Loan Type

According to the Mortgage Banker Association’s latest National Delinquency Survey (NDS) the overall delinquency rate for mortgage loans on one‐to‐four‐unit residential properties increased to a seasonally adjusted rate of 3.88% of all loans outstanding at the end of Q4 2023. In addition, the delinquency rate was up 26 basis points from Q3 2023 but down 8 basis points from one year ago

“Mortgage delinquencies increased across all product types for the second consecutive quarter Of particular note, FHA delinquencies were up 131 basis points The resumption of student loan payments, robust personal spending, and rising balances on credit cards and other forms of consumer debt, paired with declining savings rates, are likely behind some borrowers falling behind at the end of 2023”

“ Any weakening in employment conditions would likely lead to more borrowers falling behind on their payments in the coming quarters”
