Though this mornings unemployment report was 35k larger than concensus little is moving on stocks, bonds (at least before the 1 PM 30yr Fed auction today) and therefore rates are too so far today.
Hey guys...If you are in the process of buying or just pondering jumping in, historically February and July have been the months that really kick off home buying activity. What should that mean to you? If you are in the lucky financial position of even thinking of taking advantage of these fire sale prices out there in this market...you must get pre-qualified in advance so you are ready with the pre-qualification letter in hand the day you want to negotiate an offer. It's vitally important to a seller that you are qualified walking in the door. Don't put it off any longer. Get with us as soon as you can to get it going. You can usually get it done the same day if you start early. And...you can do it on line on this site by completing a loan application form (just takes 10 to 15 minutes) which is the key to accessing reviews from the automated underwriting systems everywhere.
