Will the rate cut affect me??? - 09/20/07 06:45 AM
As most people are aware by now, the Fed, in a very wise move, decided to drop interest rates. As good as this news is I want people to understand that it DOES NOT mean that your interest rate will drop by the amount that it was lowered or even any at all. The Federal Reserve said it lowered short-term interest rates by half a percentage point, to 4.75%, to combat the effects of a weaker housing market and tighter credit on the broader economy. The steep reduction in the Fed funds rate surprised many on Wall Street who expected a (0 comments)

Our Voices ARE NEEDED!! - 09/16/07 10:17 AM
I just posted to my blog the NAR call to action that was sent out to all REALTORS. After doing some checking with some local REALTORS that I know (I asked 11 different ones) I am the ONLY one who forwarded that email to my congressman! THAT IS SHAMEFUL! I know that in this world we get asked to support a lot of "causes" and I understand that our most valuable commodity is our time, but this only takes under 1 minute to complete. For under 1 minute of your valuable time you can't do something that could benefit so many (1 comments)

Realtor Call to Action - 09/16/07 06:14 AM
Below is a copy of a letter that I sent to my Congressman regarding the housing crisis. There is a bill currently in Congress # HR 1852 that will expand the FHA loan program and also allow for loan limit increases. Both of which will help out the financial problems many people are facing. If you have not been sent this letter by your local Board of Realtors or you are not signed up for NAR, please copy and paste it, find out who your congressman/woman is and email it to them.Thank you, Bobbie FilesRepresentative Barney FrankU.S. House of Representatives2252 Rayburn House Office (3 comments)
