Internet Quote of the Day: “The internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom.” – Jon Stewart
A little souvenir money for your upcoming vacation: If you’ve had a good experience working with me, write a positive review on Zillow and then email me to let me know you did. I’ll send you a $25 gift card!
Did’ja Know…?: Our nation’s total outstanding debt has doubled over the last seven years to $17.59 trillion dollars. I read that fact every time I’m feeling bad about my Visa bill and it makes me feel better.
Okay, Music Trivia Fans, can you guess these songs after only one second?
Wuss’up This Week: After a few boring weeks of economic reports (actually, they’re all boring) we’ve got some coming out this week that can sway rates big-time in either direction. Today we’ve got PPI and Capacity Utilization – both reports measure inflation. Tomorrow we’ve got Weekly Jobless Claims (expected at 308k) and Housing Starts (995k expected). Reminder: the better the news for the economy the worse the rates will get, and vice-versa.
Interest rates remain in the low 4s with ARM rates about a point lower. As usual, rates can vary based on type of home, equity in the home, and who your all-time favorite Simpsons guest star was.
Don’t forget to remember that for any purchase or refinance loan I will waive all lender fees – a $995 savings! What? Are you for real, Barry? I am real, and I’m spectacular.

Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Julia Roberts. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Slingshot Flying Monkey? Simply email me the answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: “It was on this date in 2008 that my song hit its 7th week as the number one song in the country. And it was on this date in 2010 that another one of my songs was entering its 6th week as the number one song in the country. Both songs are about females (although spelled differently). Interestingly enough both titles were hit songs in the past – one by the Beach Boys and one by one-hit wonder Jill Sobule in 1995.”
