Virgins, Rates, and Skyscrapers in One Minute
Virgin Quote of the Day: “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.” – George Carlin
Wuss’up This Week: Every day reports about or economy are released into the wild, and it’s these reports that can sway interest rates in either direction. Today there is a 10-year Note Auction (*these make a great birthday gift!), tomorrow Jobless Claims, and on Friday we’ve got Retail Sales and Consumer Sentiment. Hey, speaking of Friday who remembers the most annoying song about Friday ever written.
Interest Rates remain the high-3s/low-4s for a 30-year fixed, with ARM rates about a half a point lower. As usual rates will vary based on type of home, equity in the home, your credit score, and if you know what happens in one minute.
Don’t Forget to Remember: Any purchase or refinance loan over $240k I will waive HALF the lender fees – an $895 savings! Grab yourself a cup of instant karma and pass this info onto any friends, family, coworkers, or people that eat lunch on skyscrapers that can use this gift!
Virgin Quote of the Day 2: “Virgin Airlines should just be itself. It’ll happen eventually.” – @senderblock23
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to those who guessed Huey Lewis last week. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Pop-Tarts T-shirt? Simply email me the answer to this week’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “Where is the love, you ask? It was in St. Andrews Catholic Church on this date in 2008 when the rapper in our group got married. We are named after a food (no, not the spicy band you’re thinking of but they were an influence) that we like to say is food for the souls. In 2009 we became the 11th group to have simultaneously held the # 1 and # 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Both songs are three word titles, one of them makes an anagram ‘genital toe fig’. Still don’t know who we are? We have a feeling you’ll eventually figure it out.”
