Talking About Rates, Chips, and Shots
Talking Quote of the Day: “The older I grow the more I listen to people who don’t talk much.” – Germain G. Glien
Did’ja Know: If you start with a dollar and double it every day you’ll own every financial asset that exists on this planet (around $200 trillion).
Wuss’up This Week: Every day reports are released about the economy that can sway interest rates in either direction. It’s actually a pretty quiet week with tomorrow being the only day with important news (Jobless Claims – 265k expected, Existing Home Sales – 5.350 expected, and Juggling Trick shots – coolness expected).
Interest rates remain in the high-3s/low-4s 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 how well you know your smashed chips.
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 send this message to any friends, family, coworkers or lazy people that can use this gift.
Talking Quote of the Day 2: “The first rule of Thesaurus Club is, you don’t talk about, mention, speak of, discuss or chat about Thesaurus Club.” – @Pundamentalism
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Eric Clapton last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Stress Sausage? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “It was this week back in 1997 my movie was released. Yeah, I know – this movie could’ve been released in the warmer months but maybe the producers wanted to capitalize on scaring movie fans around Halloween time. My co-stars in the movie (who met on the set and got married in real life) were a girl who liked to battle vampires and a guy whose starred with a cartoon dog in a couple flicks. And me? I can tell you that Haley Joel Osment has got nothing on me when it comes to TV shows.”
