As a follow-up to the post I shared yesterday, the Fed is feeling even more political pressure to decrease rates sooner. Will the Fed remain an independent decision maker, or cave to the demands of the White House?
JUST IN: Kudlow wants the Fed to "immediately" cut interest rates by 50 basis points.
Ever since the Fed did a 180 degree turn from their Hawkish to Dovish position on the economy, interest rates across the economy have decreased significantly, especially true for mortgages. Great news for home buyers! But what does it say about the overall health of the U.S. economy? There are whispers that when the Fed meets again in June, the target Fed Funds rate may be lowered by at least 25 BPS.
Homebuyers got a big boost to their purchasing power this week thanks to falling mortgage rates.
This is one of those must attend annual events. #richmondproud The third annual Taste of Richmond will celebrate the diverse food, beverage, music and culture of Richmond. Located at the scenic Riggers Loft Wine Co. Riggers Loft Wine Company #richmondca
When #boxers play it’s rough to some but #filbertandzoey love their boxing, chasing game. #boxersofinstagram
Check out my friends band #thesecretidentities play at the #starryplough this coming Saturday.
I am so happy for my clients MB and AJ. They closed on a very cool, industrial live/work space. It took us 2+ months to close because of the complexity of the transaction and the loan was a not to commonly used FHA 203K loan. Most patient clients ever! Thank you for your partnership! Congratulations you two!

"Nearly 14,000 passengers rode the Richmond Ferry in the first month of service, averaging 636 passengers per weekday"
I'm not surprised at all! There was a lot of pent up demand. I've worked with many home buyers who were interested in Richmond specifically because ferry service was starting. #richmondproud Free parking, plus Clipper Card, nearly equals the cost of catching BART at Richmond or Del Norte stations.

Real estate related wire scams are on the rise! Buyers should confirm each and every wire instruction (deposit, closing funds, etc.) they receive directly, by phone (not email), with their agent or more importantly their escrow office.
Be very careful where you wire the deposit on your new home
What I’ll be thinking about during a Rams Vs. Pats Super Bowl #sfgiants @sfgiants
The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.45% nationally in the January 17 week, mortgage guarantor Freddie Mac said Thursday. That was unchanged during the week, and still at a nine-month low. What will the Fed do in 2019? The big question now is what kind of spring selling season would-be buyers will face?
Rates for home loans were unchanged at recent lows, helping bolster the housing market’s comeback case.

If willing to purchase a home that may not yet be picture perfect or have all the bells and whistles, a renovation loan may be something to consider. I currently have buyers in contract who are using a FHA 203(k) loan to purchase a live/work property. So far the process has been fairly straightforward. But buyers should know that the close of escrow may take 45 days or longer depending on the property type, condition, and the amount of the 203(k) portion of the loan.
Entry-level homes are scarce. Try a home loan that combines the purchase price with the cost of improvements.
On Thursday, Jan. 10. from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., the community is invited to the launch party, at The Craneway Pavilion, 1414 Harbour Way South.
Ferry service will officially launch with its first trip to San Francisco's Ferry Building at 6:10 a.m. that day.

Fed raised target range for rates to 2.25%-2.50% from 2.0%-2.5%. Projected to raise just twice in 2019, and not three times as previously communicated! Yields on existing Treasuries drop in response.

With 2018 coming to an end in just a couple of weeks, in 2019 will we be bringing in the new year of the buyer's market". "Rising prices and mortgage rates have priced out some potential buyers while causing others to conclude that waiting to buy could pay off, especially as listings rise.” Read on.
Home sales have slowed to a crawl nationally, and it's not just the winter temperatures, it's the weaker pulse of the market, especially the markets that were hottest just last spring.
I feel so blessed to work for such wonderful clients! Thank you LG for the incredible, heartfelt #zillow #zillowpremieragent five-star review.
On Friday, real estate agent extraordinaire @gregnovakrealtor and I closed our beautiful #midcenturymodern listing at 1500 Bonita Rd. Our wonderful clients are over the moon ecstatic!
An inverted yield curve is not a "reason" nor is it a cause for the a stock market downturn. Typically, higher rates on short-term bonds compared to lower rates on longer-term bonds can be a leading indicator of a downward economic trend (recession) if the inversion persists and begins to extend to longer duration bonds along the yield curve. What will the Fed do? Either stop raising short term rates, or inflate longer-term rates through direct market intervention in the longer-term/duration treasury market.
U.S. stocks on Tuesday are in free fall, just a day after equity benchmarks mounted a rally that took the Dow Jones Industrial Average to its best close in a month.

Myths behind credit scores are always running rampant. There are many beliefs people have about what affects a credit score. These 5 credit score falsehoods are just a sample of myths that need debunking.
