Home Economic Recovery Act and Regulation Z Will Help Protect Home BuyersThere has been a lot of buzz about the Home Economic Recovery Act and Regulation Z. This regulation is an additional layer of the revamped FDIC Truth In Lending laws designed to protect consumers by forcing lenders to disclose detailed information prior to the consumer. The new provisions, prompted by the Credit CARD Act of 2009 and directly related to home loans and credit cards, will hopefully help prevent the recent housing market downturn from happening again.These additional protection steps will help consumers make wiser financial decisions about their home loans and help reduce the number of predatory lenders out there. Consumers will be better armed with accurate knowledge and details concerning potentially...

The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area has shown four consecutive months of positive returns according to Case-Shiller Index by Standard & Poor. Area homeowners in the area will be pleased to find out the good news since it may be an early sign that the economic decline has started to swing back in the right direction.If the trend continues, the number of Dallas-Fort Worth real estate foreclosures will dwindle down to normal numbers. In Arlington and Mansfield this is already the case. Homeowners will also hopefully start seeing their property values stabilize and, in some cases increase. Home prices were down by over 2% in June when compared to last year which was and still is a major concern for homeowners.Multiple reliable sources of data and statistics on the Dallas-Fort Worth real...

In thinking of landmarks around the Dallas Ft. Worth area, many things come to mind. Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas, the Ft. Worth Stockyards, the Dealy Plaza JFK site, the Las Colinas (Irving) Mustangs running through the water sculpture, many architectural unique buildings like the InfoMart and the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center. But worldwide, in Irving, the Dallas Cowboys Stadium with the hole cut in the top of it I think everyone knows about (So God can watch his favorite team play). That building which is shut down now and soon to be demolished is local history with many memorable games and concerts that took place there. The brand new Cowboys stadium costing nearly $1.3 billion located nearby in the Ft. Worth suburb of Arlington is the future. Guess what? The hole in the roof ...

"OPINION HAS CAUSED MORE TROUBLE ON THIS LITTLE EARTH THAN PLAGUES OR EARTHQUAKES." ~ Voltaire. Opinions certainly caused some trouble in the markets last week as several Fed members talked about inflation, the arch enemy of Bonds and home loan rates, and their comments shook the markets like a high-magnitude quake.Last week began with Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke suggesting that the Fed is in no hurry to hike rates because of "slack" in the economy. Bonds traded lower on this news, and this may be because many economists disagree with Bernanke and believe a rate hike would actually help strengthen the US Dollar, drop oil prices closer to $100 per barrel, ease inflation pressure and...as a result, help Bonds and home loan rates improve.Also chiming in last week was Philadelphia Fed Presid...

Moving can be very exciting...but it can also be a bit of a pain as well. Besides packing and unpacking, there is a long list of details to be handled. Things like choosing a mover, connecting utilities, getting Internet and cable service, or subscribing to newspapers or magazines in a new area can be quite a chore. And if you forget to connect one of the utilities you could be stuck in your new home for several days without that much needed service. To ease the stress of moving and schedule new connections for all of the utilities in one convenient location, simply logon to www.whitefence.com. Go to www.tombrewerjr.com for more information.You can quickly compare prices for movers, phone, electricity, television, or high-speed Internet. Just select the service you wish to compare--for ...

So we know that employment numbers were the big movers and shakers for the financial markets and home loan rates last week. What's in store for the week ahead, and what could drive more market action?Keep your eye out for the Retail Sales Report, which will be released on Thursday. The Retail Sales report is a measure of the total receipts of retail stores, and changes in these numbers are closely followed as a timely indicator of broad consumer spending patterns. Recent numbers haven't been too bad - consumers seem to still keep spending away. But, will this week's report show that inflation and high oil prices are finally taking their toll on consumer pocketbooks? A strong Retail Sales Report would be good for the Stock market - which stands to reason, as it would indicate continued c...

"THERE IS NO BARRIER TOO HIGH, NO VALLEY TOO DEEP... NO DREAM TOO EXTREME, NO CHALLENGE TOO GREAT" ~ Charles Swindoll And that motivating phrase was a great motto for last week, as both Bonds and home loan rates ended up being greatly challenged as they dreamed of breaking through technical barriers to attempt some improvement. Lots of intra-week action ensued - but when the dust settled, Bonds and home loan rates rallied in the face of challenges and ended the week very close to where they began.Bond prices and home loan rates started the week to the upside, as Wachovia announced they were removing their CEO and Stocks faced some selling pressure on the news, moving money into Bonds and helping rates improve. But the rally was very short lived, as Wednesday's "unofficial" Employment Re...
