Dan Green wrote a post today about the latest jobs report, and how it impacted home prices in his market of Ohio. According to Dan’s post:
Brandon Nicely wants you to know that interest rates aren’t quite as scary as one would think. Here’s a video to prove it:
I was asked by a local reporter recently for some end-of-year thoughts on the New River Valley real estate market, and while I haven’t yet started working on the 4Q report yet, I started to wonder how many loans in the NRV will be resetting in the coming year. Peoples mind might be asking themselves, “ Can I get a loan with bad credit?”
Allow me to introduce Brandon Nicely, branch partner in Alcova Mortgage here in Blacksburg. The mortgage industry is literally changing on a daily – and sometimes hourly basis – and Brandon’s going to be bringing us the straight talk on what’s really going on in the industry, what’s happening with rates, and what to expect going forward. And we’re going to hold him to every word, it’s as good as gold! Okay … we’ll give him a little leeway.
Remember that whole Taylor, Bean & Whitaker mess? It’s been on my mind since it happened, I think in part because I have friends whose mortgage is with TBW. And one of the questions they asked was “where do I pay my mortgage?” Word to the wise … keep paying. They’ll tell you where to send your next payment.
Seems like this would’ve been a good idea all along (from Marianne Lane, Coldwell Banker Mortgage):
A friend sent me the following email, and I had to post it. According to Snopes.com it’s a recycled bit of fun, but nevertheless I thought it appropriate given the subject … and because I can see it happening. Ah, bureaucracy … and lawyers.
Kudos to The Roanoke Times for reporting on this, I think it’s timely information, written by Jeff Sturgeon … (bold emphases are mine)
