Rising Rates Can’t Stop Talented Bulldogs
Hand Quote of the Day: “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT’S relativity.” – Albert Einstein
Here’s a fun take on the difference between men and women.
Wuss’up This Week: Economic reports are released daily that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today we have Housing Starts, tomorrow Jobless Claims, and Friday nothing. Feel free to call in sick Friday.
Interest rates remain at 4% give or take for a 30yr fixed, with ARM rates about .50-75% lower. As usual rates will vary based on type of home, equity in the home, credit score, and if you’re interested in facts about a cheesy 70s tune.
Don’t forget to remember: Any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a savings of $1,050! Grab yourself a cup of instant karma and pass this info onto any friends, family, coworkers, or Guinness record-setting bulldogs that can use this savings!

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those of you who guessed John Lennon last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Giant Shrimp Pillow? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “My movie was released this week 1996 and went on to gross $273 million worldwide. People applying for a mortgage with Barry may joke and say my best line from the movie to him (which eventually became a nationwide catch phrase). I starred in two other successful movies (in 1992 and 1997) that both had the word ‘good’ in the title, and both starred a guy that has won 3 Academy Awards and who improvised that line about an old talk show host.”
Barry’s Blog is taking off next week so I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. And remember…everyone’s family is just as dysfunctional as yours!
