Today rates improved dramatically.  I hope to see them continue on this trend.  The stock market may have closed down 400 points but the 10 year treasury bond was up 75 bps.  The FNMA 5.5% bond gained 62 bps and the GNMA 6% bond gained 43 bps.   This is very good for interest rates.  Todays 30 ye...

I was working on a loan file today, when I suddenly realized that not everyone pays attention to the news.  I have been working on getting people not to focus on the negative media, it is not productive.  So one of my loan officers was questioning an underwriter for requirements she placed upon a...

You ever notice that Mondays are very difficult to get through?  I have no explanation as to why, I just know they are.  We find ourselves sitting in front of one another sharing stories about the weekend.  Seems like the same story from last Monday and the Monday before that.  Mondays stink.  I ...

Today I found myself thinking of the many things that are about to take place in the next 30-90 days.  The presidential election could be the most important part of modern day history. With that in mind, can we really believe anything that is in the media?  I personally find the media ridiculous,...

The news out there is so negative, I cannot believe more people haven't turned to the bottle.  The mortgage meltdown seems to be the only news, and it seems like we should be ashamed to tell people we are involved in the mortgage industry.  There were a lot of bad people in the mortgage industry....
