Cookies and Rates – both Sweet!
Cookie Quote of the Day: “I’m into fitness… Fitness cookie into my mouth!” – Cookie Monster
I’ve never done drugs before but I imagine this is what I would feel like if I did
Wuss’up This Week: Every day reports about the economy are released that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today we have the Fed announcing rates won’t go up (*my prediction), tomorrow Jobless Claims, and nothing important on Friday so feel free to call in sick and enjoy a three day weekend!
What do interest rates and my high school GPA have in common? Nothing, which is a shame because rates would be in the 1s and 2s. Still, they are beautiful, Mortgage Fans. A 30yr fixed remains in the mid-3s with ARMs about a half a point lower. As usual rates will vary based on credit scores, type of home, equity in the home, and if you had a lemonade stand that made history
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 info onto any friends, family, coworkers, or marathon-running breast-pumping moms that can use this break. (*I admire this woman. I once sprained my ankle running a 5k while chewing gum; clearly she’s a better multi-tasker than I will ever be).

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed David Bowie last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Dinosaur Bottle Opener? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “My birthday today, which I know happens every year but when you get to be my age every day feels the same. I was born and raised in the Chicagoland which is so different than Tokyo (*side note: that’s a hint for a film I was in that people call the ‘best most boring movie ever’). I don’t know how many years I have left on this planet, but when I die I’ll come back and haunt the actresses for trying to remake an 80s classic.”
