For Week Ending March 30, 2019

The national unemployment rate held firm at 3.8 percent for the second month in a row, which is good news for an economy that has shown signs of slowing down during the first three months of 2019. Hiring and wage gains have both been below expectations, retail sales dropped considerably to close 2018, and there have been fewer home sales across the nation. Maintaining a historically low unemployment rate is reassuring and may offer confidence to many wary and weary consumers.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending March 30:

• New Listings increased 18.6% to 1,470
• Pending Sales decreased 3.1% to 1,151
• Inventory decreased 4.3% to 8,657
