Why would life give you lemons…life is not a lemon tree!

I’m confused… Wait, maybe I’m not…

Even Barbie is not perfect. I snapped off her leg.

Traffic is moving at a standstill….what???

If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of payments.


Now The Market Report . . .


Consumer spending rose for a 7th straight month in September, but personal income recorded its smallest gain in more than a year on moderate wage growth.

Companies continued to hire at a brisk pace in October. Private payrolls rose by a better-than-expected 227,000, according to ADP and Moody’s Analytics.

Despite a strong labor market and increasing inflation, the Fed is not expected to raise policy rates at next week’s meeting. A December rate hike is likely though.


According to Case-Shiller, home price gains tempered to a 5.8% yearly increase in August. This is slightly lower than prior readings yet still a healthy rate.

Mortgage application volume fell 2.5% last week compared to the previous week. Refinance applications were down 4% last week after previously improving.

Despite low inventory, the national homeownership rate was 64.4% in the third quarter. That’s a half-percentage point higher than it was a year ago.


What do two mortgage companies offering different rates have?
