Here is today's "Monday Motivational" Quote for this week:

I hope you have an amazing day & week

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!

As you may have noticed, I like to start the week off right by sending out a "Motivational Message"....

Here is today's "Monday Motivational" Quote for this week:

"The Next Time You Feel Slightly Uncomfortable With The Pressure In Your Life, Remember... No Pressure, No Diamonds. Pressure Is a Part Of Success." Eric Thomas

Diamonds are pieces of "Charcoal" that handled "Pressure" extremely well when the other pieces crumbled...

Life delivers a lot of "Pressure" to all of us, that is a part of Life... The question then becomes, are we committed to becoming a "Diamond" or are we going to crumble?

#BecomeADiamond 🙂

I hope you have an awesome day & week!

I hope you had an amazing weekend and are ready for a great week!

OK... Here is the "Motivation" Quote for this week:

"You Can Have It All... Just Not All At Once." Oprah Winfrey

I hope you have an awesome day & week!!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great weekend!

As always, I like to start the week off right with some words of Motivation and share a "Motivational Quote and/or Message" that had a positive impact on me and pass it along, just in case you may find it impactful as well...

OK... Here is the "Monday Motivation" Quote for this week:

"To Conquer Frustration, One Must Remain Intensely Focused On The Outcome, Not The Obstacles." T.F. Hodge

The path to success is always difficult... When things become "Hard", that is when the true work begins and what separates those who create success from those who quit and give up on their Dreams! Always keep pushing, never stop & when it gets "Hard", always remember why you started in the first place!

I hope you have an awesome day & week!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had an amazing weekend!

As always, I like to start the week off right with some words of Motivation....

Before I share the quote (below), I wanted to share the internal thoughts I had when I saw this quote. There were 2 main/immediate things that came to my mind:

#1: Make sure and take a quick moment out of each day to reflect on all the amazing "Blessings" in our lives....

#2: This is actually from another quote and I can't remember exactly how the quote goes, but it is something like: There are 86,900 Seconds in a day, don't let a bad 60 seconds wreck the other 86,840 seconds we have left... It is so easy to allow one bad moment, throw off and wreck our entire day, and we shouldn't allow it to do so... This is something I am as guilty of as anyone, but after seeing this quote, I am going to be much more intentional on not allowing it to do so 🙂

"God Gave You The Gift Of 86,900 Seconds Today... Have You Used One To Say Thank You?" William A. Ward

I hope you have a outstanding day & week!

Happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend!

As always, I like to start the week off right with some words of Motivation....

Is the Recent Dip in Interest Rates Here to Stay?

So..I get lots of questions about interest rates and where they’re headed. Which is a great question..18 months ago they were at 3.5%. If that’s not indicative enough, here are the predictions for 2019. I think if you’re going to buy or sell a house..do it now while affordability is still here. When rates start to rise, they’ll put downward pressure on pricing.

After the first week of 2019, rates have continued their downward trend. As Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist Sam Khater notes, this is great news for homebuyers. He states,

“Mortgage rates declined to start the new year with the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dipping to 4.51 percent. Low mortgage rates combined with decelerating home price growth should get prospective homebuyers excited to buy.”

In some areas of the country, the combination of rising interest rates and rising home prices had made some first-time buyers push pause on their home searches. But with more inventory coming to market, continued price growth, and interest rates slowing, this is a great time to get back in the market!

Will This Trend Continue?
According to the latest forecasts from Fannie Mae, the Mortgage Bankers Association, and the National Association of Realtors, mortgage rates will increase over the course of 2019, but not at the same pace they did in 2018. You can see the forecasts broken down by quarter below.

Bottom Line
Even a small increase (or decrease) in interest rates can impact your monthly housing cost. If buying a home in 2019 is on your short list of goals to achieve, let me know.

7 Reasons to List Your House For Sale This Holiday Season:

Every year at this time there are many homeowners who decide to wait until after the holidays to list their homes for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.

Here are seven great reasons not to wait:

1. Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their new employees in their new positions as soon as possible such as Amazon.
2. Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.
3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
5. There is minimal competition for you as a seller right now. Inventory of homes for sale traditionally slows in the late fall, early winter.Take a look at listing inventory graph as compared to the same time last year:
6. The desire to own a home doesn’t stop when the holidays come. Buyers who were unable to find their dream homes during the busy spring and summer months are still searching!
7. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge and reach new heights which will lessen the demand for your house in 2019.

Bottom Line:
Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home probably doesn’t make sense.
