The recent announcement of the Federal Reserve’s intentions to purchase Treasury securities over the next six months has pushed mortgage interest rates down to levels so low that the rates are making history.
Rates so low that 30 year fixed home mortgages are below 5% and who would have guessed that? Certainly not the manufacturer of Rick’s (my working partner and fellow Prudential Gary Greene, Realtor) business cards.
To the right is the once handy little monthly payment chart that Rick has printed on the back of his real estate business cards. The chart’s not as handy now since interest rates are below 5% and are not depicted.
Lower interest rates are good when you are in the real estate market for a Spring Texas home but not good when you have to replace business cards due to outdated charts. Oh well, I guess the charts will make good bookmarks.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
