Come Again Some Other Day
Rain Quote of the Day: “Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.” – Author Unknown
Gift cards…as American as apple pie: 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!
Did’ja Know…? A handful of ATMs in Japan heat-press each bill at 392 degrees Fahrenheit for a tenth of a second before dispensing, giving you clean bills that are 90% bacteria free. This germ freak knows where he is spending his next vacation!
Wuss’up This Week: It’s a slow week for economic data that can impact interest rates. The two biggest reports this week will be on Thursday when we get June Employment Numbers (expected new payrolls 195k, unemployment rate at 6.2%) and the WFW report (workers faking working) which is expected at 100% since most people like to coast on a day before a 3-day weekend.
Speaking of goofing off before a holiday. Here is a good time-killer if you’re looking for weird stuff to buy on Amazon.
Interest rates are still really low, Mortgage Fans. A 30-year fixed remains in the low 4s with ARM rates about a point lower. As usual rates can vary based on credit score, equity in the home, type of home, and if you are celebrating the 35th birthday of one of m-m-m my favorite songs.
Don’t forget to remember that for any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a $995 savings! Please let your family, friends, imaginary friends, and coworkers know what a great deal this is.

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Jennifer Beals last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win an “I Love Shuffleboard” thermos? Simply email me the answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: “Yesterday I turned 47 and for a long time was on this blog writer’s Top 5 list (you guys know that list). I married two rockers that resulted in two divorces. And way before that I dated Scott Baio (remember when his friends would call him ‘Baio Watch’?). I posed naked for a PETA ad which came naturally to me.”
