Part of the housing demand is coming from retirees, who are downsizing from homes in larger metro areas, taking the equity and purchasing properties in midsize markets like Spokane, said James Young, director at University of Washington’s Runstad Center for Real Estate Research. Remote workers – some of whom are first-time homebuyers – are also realizing they can leave Seattle and buy larger homes in Yakima or Spokane where they can save money, Young sa.

WASHINGTON — U.S. home construction increased a solid 1.9% in September after having fallen in the previous month, as homebuilding continues as one of the bright spots of the economy. The increase last month pushed home construction to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.42 million homes and apartments after a 6.7% drop in August, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. Applications for building permits, a good barometer of future activity, increased an even stronger 5.2% to 1.55 million units. After a plunge in the spring because of pandemic-related lockdowns, housing has staged a solid rebound as demand for homes with more space has grown and mortgage-rates have stayed at ultra-low levels.

For the first time in nearly 50 years, older workers are facing higher unemployment than midcareer workers, according to a study released Tuesday from the New School. The pandemic has wrecked havoc on employment for people of all ages. But researchers found that workers 55 and older lost jobs sooner, were rehired slower and continue to face higher job losses than their counterparts ages 35 to 54. It is the first time since 1973 that such an unemployment gap has persisted for six months or longer. In every recession since the 1970s, older workers had persistently lower unemployment rates than mid-career workers, partly because of the benefits of seniority. In the current recession, however, older workers experienced higher unemployment rates.

There’s a lot to like about Hanesbrands (NYSE: HBI). For starters, it owns a portfolio of familiar brands, such as Hanes, Champion, Maidenform, Bali, Playtex, L’eggs and Wonderbra. It’s a top apparel brand in the U.S., and has the benefit of operating most of its own manufacturing facilities – unlike many of its rivals, which contract out for such work. The company has been hurt by the pandemic, with many of its sales channels closed or ailing, though its mass-merchant channels such as Walmart and Target remained operational even during lockdown. Hanesbrands had already been struggling prepandemic with a soft innerwear market, and it carries significant debt (about $4 billion), far eclipsing its cash. The news is not all bad, though, due in.
