Friday Market Wrap 1/8/16 - China VS Employment       The market place is ending the week fighting against itself.  We saw a pretty calm week with mild improvements to interest rates, but nothing to write home about.  What's really interesting is what's happening with the stock market, and how it...

Another one of a host of great blogs under the "Ask an Ambassador" tag that team Bliz put out weekly.  I like this one a lot, because it's something I continually wish more people would realize.  What we wrote in a short moment of thought may not be who we are - but readers don't know that.  What...

Market on the Hump 1-6-2016       It's been a while since I've written a market update.  Not because the market hasn't been moving, but because I've been equal parts lazy and disinterested - mostly disinterested, as the market has been stagnant for a long time - stagnant, but volatile.  If you've...

How Does the Fed's Move Affect Mortgages?       There are only 2 answers to this question that leave no room for debate - "it doesn't" and "we'll see".  Informative, right?  The reality of the Fed's December decision to raise the Fed funds rate for the first time in nearly a decade has been expec...

ActiveRain Milestone - 500,000       I've come a long way since writing my first post back in 2010.  I've moved across the country, changed employers (only recently...I'm not a nomad by trade), and have seen a wild ride in the real estate market.  I also learned to blog (kind of), have met a ton ...

Why Loan Limits Didn't Increase More for 2016       Recently I blogged about the coming conventional loan limit increases planned for 2016.  There were plenty of counties in a handful of states that saw improvements in allowable loan amounts, but a lot of people seemed to be wondering why their a...

A Small Industry Victory       It's become pretty clear that congress has discovered a seemingly bottomless piggybank in the form of the mortgage & housing industries, and since the market meltdown in 2008, there have been countless instances of reforms stripping tax paying home owners, home buye...

Loan Limits Increased for 2016      Loan limits for conventional loans will be increased across several states and counties in an effort to keep financing options on pace with home values.  While the list of counties where increases will take place is not too extensive (only 5 states will see inc...
