mortgage broker: Real Estate and Finance - Same Story Different Day - 03/30/19 09:02 AM
The past few weeks have been steady as she goes, so I'm going to mail in this post.  Interest rates took a nice dip last week and continue to hold ground just north of 4%, lending support to the housing market, while real estate remains stable with moderate softening.  Existing home sales came in at a bistering 12% month over month gain in February and are down slightly from February 2018.

mortgage broker: Real Estate Gains Footing While Fed Policy Suggests Trouble Ahead - 03/23/19 05:50 AM
If you've followed my previous blogs, I've postured that the slowdown in real estate was a brief pause, rather than a substantial decline in the market.  February's existing home sales bounced back with a blistering 12% increase over January, but still down 2% year over year.....I'll take it!  The real estate market remains strong as we head into spring and I expect we'll see healthy numbers throughout the year.

mortgage broker: Will Rising Rates Threaten Home Price Gains - 02/02/18 06:17 AM
The following is the latest analysis written by our head of capital markets.  The primary takeaway is we are squarely in a rising rate environment.  Our projection for 2018 is for rates to top out in the high 4% range, while these levels will remain supportive of the housing market, it will certainly put a damper on future price gains.  If you are seriously in the market to purchase a home, then the time is now, we anticipate the most servere rate increases in the middle and second half of the year.  The good news is you should be able to … (0 comments)
