I read today that prognosticators are indicating interest rates may exceed 10% next year. I also read where those same folks are saying home values could decline 15% next year. The former is not great, but the latter could be very good for buyers. Not bad for sellers either since home values are ...
Interest rates are going up. On the news this morning the talking heads were saying the Fed might raise interest rates again this month by a full percentage point to combat the 9.1% inflation rate. This will translate into higher rates for mortgages among many other things. This will dampen the d...
For 2 or 3 years the real estate market has been a frustrating one of buyers and their agents alike. Too few homes being chased by too many buyers. Perhaps the balance in the market is about to change.Rising interest rates are likely to force some potential buyers out of the market, with them not...
Like a driver lightly tapping the brakes on a car, we are starting to see signs of a slowdown in the real estate market. The overheated frenzy of home buying is not over, only becoming less crazy. Homes on the market are selling in a few days now instead of a few hours. We are starting to see sel...

I have never seen so many obstacles in the way of someone buying a home.Low housing inventory levels have been with us for a while now. Well before the pandemic...
Wow. Taking on this months challenge has been a...challenge. Reliving the past is hard. So, in this post I will talk about my professional life and how I ended up where I am today.So, as a senior in high school, I knew I was going to be an engineer. Probably a mechanical engineer. I loved to take...
I guess everyone does have an individual story that is important to who we are today. We are the sum of all our experiences.Mine began in Greensboro NC where I was born, in a snowstorm. I think it snowed more back then. Greensboro was a nice place to grow up. Maybe it was the times, but I spent m...
I was looking at this mailer from 2017 and noticed that I mentioned rates going up. Well, we are back to that again. After enjoying historically low rates for the past years, they look to be on the rise again.Rates are still low, but everytime they tick up, mortgages get just a bit more expensive...
