Money Quote of the Day: “If saving money is wrong, I don’t want to be right.” – William Shatner
Yo, you wanna buy a house? Rocky and Adrian’s home from Rocky 2 is now for sale.
Did’ja Know… In Scotland homeowners paint their front door red when they pay off their mortgage. (I’m 27 years, four months away from going to the paint store). Here are 14 other interesting facts.
This week is a huge, huge week for economic reports being released that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today we have ADP Employment report, tomorrow Weekly Jobless Claims, and Friday’s biggie, the Employment Report for March. If you remember, last month the report was so much better than expected that rates went up almost half a point!
Rates are still fantastic, Mortgage Fans. A 30-yr fixed is around 3.50% with ARM rates about a point lower. As usual, don’t forget to remember that for any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a $1,295 savings! This is not an April Fools joke!!!

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Rosie O’Donnell from the 3.20 blog. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Miss Piggy bank? Just email me the correct answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: On Saturday I turn 44. Interesting age, since I starred in two movies with the number ’40’ in it. Back in the ’90s I was clueless, but here I am – a guy married since 2003 to a girl, which means I don’t listen to Coldplay.”
