Holiday season sales beget returns, but e-commerce sales more so says a new report by CBRE Group, Inc. Retailers' processes for handling online returns, called reverse logistics, have added importance.

The California Association of Realtors are reporting this week that California's existing home sales ticked up in September 2016 on a year-over-year basis for the first time in seven months.

According to the National Association of Realtors, U.S. pending home sales expanded in most of the country in July 2016, and reached their second highest reading in over a decade. Only the Midwest saw a dip in contract activity last month.

Sales of newly built, single-family homes in the U.S. rose 3.5 percent in June 2016 from an upwardly revised May 2016 reading to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 592,000 units.

The American Institute of Architects is reporting this week that buoyed by increasing levels of demand across all project types, the Architecture Billings Index (ABI) was positive in June 2016 for the fifth consecutive month.

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association's Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending June 24, 2016, U.S. mortgage applications decreased 2.6 percent from one week earlier.

268,000 U.S. homeowners regained positive equity in Q1 2016, bringing the total number of mortgaged residential properties with equity at the end of Q1 2016 to approximately 46.7 million.

The California Association of Realtors are reporting this week that California statewide pending home sales reversed a three-month decline and posted higher in April.

According to the California Association of Realtors, higher wages and lower seasonal home prices combined to push California housing affordability higher in the first quarter of 2016.

Statewide pending home sales in California decreased in March 2016 on an annual basis for the third straight month, reflecting high demand for a dearth of homes available for sale on the market.

According to Irvine, Ca-based RealtyTrac's First Quarter 2016 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, foreclosure activity in the U.S. was below pre-recession levels in 78 out of 216 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas (36 percent).

Rising minimum-wage levels across the U.S. stand to impose additional cost burdens on industrial-building occupiers, especially in labor-intensive, e-commerce fulfillment centers.

This week the California Association of Realtors reported that California's January 2016 existing home sales posted their best January monthly performance in three years.

housing markets throughout the South region in Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee account for eight of the top ten increasing rental markets in the U.S. in 2015.

Lower interest rates and level home prices combined to perk up California housing affordability in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Industrial and supply chain real estate occupiers and investors alike experienced a record-breaking year in 2015 and should expect this trend to continue well into 2016.

According to the California Association of Realtors, pending home sales in California continued to improve from a year ago with solid gains, which will position the market for a modest increase in home sales in 2016.

California existing home sales rebounded in December 2015, after new loan disclosure rules delayed closings in November 2015.
