The last time I blogged was November 2007. I can't believe I have been out of the rain that long. I've missed it!
Many changes have happened in the mortgage industry since November. Stated loans were still around and so were about 40 other big lenders. I feel like I'm talking about way back in the day and in reality major changes have happened in the last 9 months. I think I love the mortgage industry just as much today as the day I started 11 years ago. 1st time Home Buyers are still my passion. Dispelling the rumors of the impossibilities of buying a home, and showing them it is possible, and still with little money down - and tax credit to boot. The rates are still GREAT and it is a great time to buy a HOME!
I started lurking in the rain again a week or so ago and noticed many changes too. Re-blogging? New Localism! Posting to an outside blog. WOW AR! Impressive. Almost 105,000 members, I think in November the number was around 70,000. I have a lot of catching up to do!
Where does the time go?
I think I know what happened...Thanksgiving, Christmas, Vacation, Spring break, Graduation,Graduation parties, Summer vacation, and then the kids are out for the summer. Keeping up with life and changes in the mortgage industry seem to have taken away from my blogging.
I see many familiar faces and look forward to learning all the new things. I really missed playing in the rain!
