Tourney Pick: Anyone filling out brackets will be smart to take my alma mater – the University of Kansas! Ahh…best seven years of my life.
I don’t know why I find this exploding cat so hypnotic but it’s the reason I haven’t gotten any work done this morning.
Wuss’up This Week: Reports come out daily in regards to the health of our economy that can sway interest rates in either direction. A busy rest of the week, Mortgage Fans: today we’ve got the FOMC Meeting Announcement (expected: prime rate will not be raised), tomorrow Jobless Claims (expected: 270k), and on Friday Consumer Sentiment (expected: 92.2). Any good economic news will have rates continuing their climb. And where are rates…
…the 30yr fixed remains in the high-3s/ low-4s, with ARM rates about .50% lower. Don’t forget 15yr fixed in the low-3s and some ARMs in the 2s! As usual rates will vary based on type of home, equity in the home, credit score, and if you can find hidden messages in company logos.
Don’t forget to remember: Any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a $1,050 savings! Grab yourself a cup of instant karma and pass this message onto any friends, family, coworkers or pillow washers that can use this break.

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Sharon Stone last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Pizza Beach Blanket? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “Tomorrow I turn 52. You might think I’m a bad boy (or a brat). Yes, in a 90s movie I wasn’t nice to a SNL actor from Canada. In another 90s movie I wasn’t nice to a couple more SNL actors, but who cares – my girlfriend in that movie was a 10! On the other side of the coin TV wasn’t nice to me. I left a successful show because I was not paid as well as the rest of the actors (one of whom has a son in real life who is HIV positive), and my commercials don’t appear anymore which is okay – I really don’t have a split personality.”
