"February good is always to have your long everybody. You know, I say every now and then on this program that a single indicator doesn't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy mixed up, a Konami we live in and once again today, the business and economic powers that be are proving me right to it. The figures from the Commerce Department, we told you about last week that retail sales in December a report that remember was delayed by the shutdown were unexpectedly down those retail sales were unexpected because holiday sales, right? Everybody's buying things. It is possible as we said at the time that that drop was mostly statistical noise, but today there was some hard evidence that the reporter Retailing's demise might indeed have been greatly exaggerated. Walmart posted surprisingly strong sales this morning up four point two percent through the quarter that ended in January. And if you remember that the giant retailer has gone through quite the turnaround the past couple of years at this point in two. Thousand sixteen warmer was coming off six straight quarters of flat or declining sales. So it's news marketplace embarrass looks into what's driving. Walmart's revival. Ecommerce has been a big part of WalMart's recent growth was up forty three percents over the quarter in it's never ending quest to compete with Amazon the retailer invested a whole bunch of money and redesigning its website and introducing grocery pickup, and that's helped boost the average sale per customer. Visit WalMart reported Peter boat right teaches marketing at Carnegie Mellon. He says consumers tend to buy nonfood items. They find in grocery stores, and WalMart might have started to figure this out in an online setting where people now they've invested in the order ahead online. Come pick up your groceries. Why not while you're already on that trip? Same thing. Same story. Get a few other items. Walmart was also able to grab holiday shoppers. Now that toys R us has gone, and it's gained from its partnership with Lord and Taylor. According to Neal Saunders an analyst with global data. What does he at the corpus news WalMart to attract perhaps some demographics wouldn't usually shop co WalMart stores? Walmart has one big advantage over Amazon thousands of brick and mortar stores it refurbished by hundred of them last year and Sanders says that just by making those small improvements they've really got more customers coming into store the getting those customers to spend a little bit more. And when you're as big as WalMart a little bit more. It can add up to a lot more dollars in the register America barriers for marketplace. If you are a renter in this economy. This next story is going to sound depressingly familiar rents on single family homes are going up by about three percent nationally last year, which is. Also, as it happens about how much average wages grew during that same period before you factor in inflation and for the fifth year in a row, rents have increased the most percentage wise at the low end of the market. That's all according to a report out today from core logic. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more when Brett Wyatt and his husband moved into their two bedroom. Two bath town house in Atlanta for years ago. The rent was fifteen hundred a month. Now, it's sixteen fifty. I would not say our pay has been commensurate with the increase in housing prices, especially in Atlanta, and that makes it harder for them to keep up with expenses and save to buy a home economist, Molly basil at core. Logic says rents are rising most at the low end of the market by three point seven percent a year on a thousand dollar rental. That's almost four hundred fifty dollars more over the course of a year. We have a lot of newly formed households you know, coming out and most likely looking for rentals at the lower end. Are really driving up those prices. Meanwhile, home builders have focused on the higher end of the market where they can make more money Andrew or end with the national low income housing coalition says that leaves more people doubling up with family members and with friends constantly moving. And in the worst cases that they wind up becoming homeless landlords feel squeezed to AJ paymaster owns two rentals in the Phoenix area where rents are rising on average seven percent a year. According to core logic paymaster says he's been raising the rent about seven to eight percent every eighteen months to two years with wages. Just not really going up very much. Unlike current job on my wife's job, this is the way for me to actually still keep up with some of the increasing cost overall lifestyle to hold onto his tenants. He tries to keep his rents slightly below market. But he plans to keep raising them as long as the market allows. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace. Coming up tomorrow on the marketplace morning report. Dateline? China rising rents oh, they are a global phenomenon. Wall Street today that was fine. We'll have the details when we do the numbers.
