Hilton is recycling used bars of hotel soap to save the planet

Like I needed another reason to book with Hilton. From their gutsy refusal to be bullied by 3rd party booking sites, to their unfailing service and welcome, and now their continued focus on trying to lessen their, and my, impact on the environment. It is awesome to support a company that is more than just about the money.

Used soap from Hilton Hotels is getting a second life.

Housing Market Positioned for a Gentler Slowdown Than in 2007

Shift is gradually happening. This is good news for home buyers and for investors preparing to buy. Sellers - still low inventory - not a bad market to be in! Prices in NoVa pretty steady, inventory a little higher year-over-year.

The U.S. housing market is running out of steam, but its slowdown looks nothing like the historic collapse that took down the whole economy in 2007.

The Financial Crisis Changed Home Buying Forever

Rising rates, builders building very cautiously, low inventory, and tarrifs on building materials all increase the cost of a home. Still very affordable right now! If you are thinking of buying in the next few years, consider it doing it sooner than later.

DC-area homes selling at fastest pace in a decade | WTOP

24 out of the 294 listed as sold on MLS in Arlington Co in last 30 days had 0 days on market. Unless these properties went active, had showing, buyers wrote offer, all terms negotiated and signed off on in less than 15 hours (9AM-midnight)- these were properties marketed prior to listing on MLS; and likely any 3rd party site. Sellers - you need an agent that knows how to market and get best terms off MLS; Buyers - you need an agent that knows where to find those properties and which agents have them.

The Washington-area housing market continues to suffer from a lack of sufficient listings to meet buyer demand, and what is on the market is getting snapped up fast.

How Much Do Real Estate Agents Make?

The most successful agents put in 60 hours or week or more showing homes, meeting with clients and looking for new business. But for those agents who make that commitment, the rewards can be priceless.

What the 10-year Treasury yield means to you? Real money.

Time to get of the fence while affordability is still good.

“Mortgage rates are closely linked to the level of the 10-year yield,” Ryan said. “If the 10-year ticks higher, mortgage costs are going to go higher. That impacts the housing market, and it’s one of the main channels the 10-year yield translates into the real economy.”

The uptick of the yield on the 10-year Treasury could ripple through mortgage rates, the stock market and corporate debt.
