1. Petit Home Team News
Trea Fullen, a listing agent on the Petit Home Team, organized an event this Halloween at the St. Jude Children’s hospital in downtown Charlotte to help give back to our community. This agent, the Petit Home Team, and many others came together to donate to St. Jude after the closing of 20300 Bethel Church Rd earlier this month. On Halloween, Trea, his girlfriend Sarah, Cole Schwietering from movement mortgage, and 3 professional baseball players Anthony Dimino, Sean Ryan, and Ryder Ryan spent the morning handing out candy and autographed baseballs for the children at St. Jude and Hemby Children’s hospital. It was a great day full of fun and smiles for all of those involved, and a great opportunity to get involved within the community. We hope to be able to continue to donate and organize many more events like this one in the future.
2. Our Market Today
The Federal Reserve had their most recent meeting on Wednesday November 1st where they decided to leave the federal funds rate unchanged at a 1% to 1.25% target range. Policy makers have indicated that despite the disruptions from hurricanes this year, the labor market is continuing to strengthen. Household spending has continued to gradually expand, and inflation measures have declined over the past 12 months and are under the 2% target the Fed has. Currently it appears that the December meeting and planned rate hike will remain on the table.
