Can I Call You?
Dating Quote of the Day: “Dating is collecting information about someone until you realize you don’t like them.” – Amber Tozer (@ambertozer)
Don’t Spend It All on Fireworks: If you’ve had a good experience working with me, write a positive review on Zillow and then email me to let me know you did. I’ll send you a $25 gift card!
This is probably the first time I’ve posted a link to a tampon commercial, but I thought it was funny.
Happy birthday shout out to my favorite sister in the world! (no, not Sister Sledge, although I’m pretty sure she had these hairstyles from 1979-86).
Wuss’up This Week: By the time this posts I will have had my second bowl of Lucky Charms and read about the Durable Goods Orders, which was released over an hour ago. The report is expected to show an increase of these orders by 0.4%. Anything less than that number may lead to lower rates. What else can lead to lower rates? Tomorrow’s Weekly Jobless Claims (expected 309k), and PCE Core Inflation Report (expected up 0.2%, no clue what this is but it sounds awfully important).
Interest rates continue to take very little bounces up and down. A 30-year fixed rate remains in the low 4s with ARM rates about a point lower. As usual rates vary based on type of home, equity in the home, credit score, and if you are curious about obscure references in classic rock songs.
Don’t forget to remember that for any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a $995 savings! Be a hero and pass this info onto anyone who can use a break.
Dating Quote of the Day 2: “Am I supposed to bring condoms to a speed dating event? How fast do these things actually go?” – Elan Gale (@theyearofelan)
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Cyndi Lauper last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Adverb” T-shirt? Simply email me the answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: “It was on this day in 1983 that the soundtrack to the movie I starred in hit #1 on the US album chart. The author of this blog became whipped on me when he saw how sexy I can make a sweatshirt look. I’ve been in a good handful of movies since then but none that made as much money as this one. I was in a Showtime series for six years that led to me being a Celebrity Grand Marshal at the 2006 San Francisco Pride Parade.”
