Did’ja Know…? Reportedly 85% of the gold our government owns is located at a military base in Fort Knox. 85% of the people reading this have heard of Fort Knox…but do you know what state it’s located in? Answer at the bottom of this blog.
Lots of economic reports come out daily that can sway interest rates either direction. And sometimes – when bigger things are going on – these reports don’t play a factor. In the case with Syria, just the talk of U.S. intervention has caused instability in gold, oil, stocks, and bonds. My best guess is that if we do intervene the rates will actually improve here. This is because with the stock market being unstable investors want to put their money into something safe, which is why they buy bonds – the mattress stuffing of the investment world – which then indirectly causes rates to drop.
Rates have stayed relatively flat the past 3-4 weeks. 30-year fixed rates remain in the mid-4s with ARM rates about a half a point to a point lower. Don’t forget to remember that for any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive all lender fees – a $1,295 savings! Please let all of your friends, family, coworkers, pets, Democrats, Republicans, sports fans, and UFO enthusiasts what a great deal this is!

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Jack Black last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win Freudian Slippers? Simply email me the answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: “Yesterday I turned 48. Don’t call me half a man – if you saw how many women I’ve been with you’d stop that joke – although I never got to dirty dance with the chick I picked up in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. My first name is the same as my character’s in my last sitcom and my last name is the same as my famous father’s, but my famous brother who has the same father has a different last name than both of us. Confused? You should be – during my 2011 rants I said a lot of things that made no sense.”
Fort Knox = Kentucky.
