Chart of the Week

Sales of new homes continued to decline in the month of June, resulting in the third straight month of declines. The chart of the week looks at both the monthly rate of new home sales (top), as well as the median sales price (bottom). Rising prices and a lack of inventory are leading to the decline and the cooling of what has been a hot housing market throughout the pandemic. While we could see some further consolidation in the near term, borrowing costs remain near record lows.

About Us

We are Shane Phillips and Joseph Karl, and together we are the hosts of “Relatable Finance.” We have worked together at Provenance Wealth Advisors (PWA) since 2014 and come from similar backgrounds. Both of us are from the Midwest but found our way to South Florida. We played college football (and by “played,” we mean we were on the teams), and we both enjoy the financial markets enough to have spent the time to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder designation.

With some help, we had the brilliant idea to start a finance-based podcast to share our knowledge with you. Our goal with each podcast is to simplify important concepts we use daily, explore the various financial risks and opportunities individuals face throughout their lives and provide perspective on current events in the financial world.

We release episodes every other week. They can be found at the link above.

We hope you find our podcasts interesting and informative and welcome any feedback. Enjoy!
