Death, Rates and Hit Songs
Death Quote of the Day: “Death is nature’s way of saying, ‘Your table is ready.’” – Robin Williams
It was on this date 30 years ago that my dad and I attended the first ever night game at Wrigley Field. Back then we knew it would take almost 30 more years to build enough talent to win it all. Hey, speaking of 30s…
…A 30yr fixed rate is in the mid-to-upper 4s with adjustable rate mortgages a teeny bit less. As usual rates will vary based on type of home, equity in the home, your credit score, and if you want to know facts about The Fugitive movie.
Wuss’up This Week: Every day reports about our economy are released into the wild, and it’s these reports that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today we’ve got a 10-year Treasury Note Auction, tomorrow Weekly Jobless Claims (expected: 218k), and on Friday the Consumer Price Index (expected: up 0.2%) – this is a measure of inflation at the consumer level. Any of these reports that are economy-positive will end up driving rates up, and vice-versa if the numbers disappoint.
Don’t Forget to Remember: Any purchase or refinance loan between now and the end of September I will waive $500 of lender fees. Grab yourself a cup of instant karma and pass my info along to any friends, family, coworkers, or people who want to know hit songs that were almost not released who can use this gift.
Death Quote of the Day 2: “Three things are certain in this world: death, taxes, and the fact that I will never know what a Bitcoin is.” – @ParkersWriting
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Martha Stewart last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win Rick and Morty Portal Bookends? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “It’s my birthday today and yes – I’m old. 36 years ago I picked up my 5th Academy Award Best Actor nomination for a film whose title had nothing to do with Halloween candy. Picked up another acting nomination six years later playing a guy who loved reality courtroom dramas and – while not an expert on Australia – it’s about the only place my character would fly. My favorite movie I ever made I didn’t get nominated for anything, but the American Film Institute nominated me and my costar as 27th on their list of Top 100 Heroes & Villains list. Were we superheroes? Well, maybe to Democrats.”
