It went from MoM of 1.5% in July to 1.2% MoM in August, as it's YoY dropped from 20.0% to 19.7%. Similar reading by the FHFA HPI, which measures homes with conforming limits. It went from 1.4% MoM in July to 1.0% in August, as it's YoY droppedd from 19.2% to 18.5%. As we hit the fall season, we have reported slower home sales; so, this is a great time for First Time Home Buyers to re-enter the Market. Inventory is still relatively low, but less competition.

Lastly, New Home Sales spiked in September by 14.0%, as it went from 702k seasonally adjusted units in August to 800k in September. MBS started higher, but quickly lost those gains It's Down 3-5bps currently, but it's not enough for any changes to Mortgage Rates, as they remain Unchanged. It closed higher in the day yesterday at +20bps. Likewise, Yields started lower (even below it's Technical floor), but quickly reversed. It's currently sitting at 1.63%.
