  The long awaited Fed decision arrived with a bang! The Fed surprised many economists and traders with a half percent cut in both the Fed Funds and Discount Rates. Stocks soared higher and enjoyed their largest gain since 2003.What does the Fed cut mean? Rates on consumer debt, car loans, and Home Equity lines will all benefit. But because Home Loan rates are tied more closely to inflation, it is not uncommon to see less of a reaction...or even an opposite reaction in mortgage rates.The Fed cut also hurts rates of return on investments, which gives foreign investors less incentive to invest in US securities. This has sent the Dollar much lower against the currency of most major foreign countries. This makes foreign goods more expensive for us to buy, which adds to inflation pressures.O...

  Today, was a good day because I caught my prey.  I love watching Hawks and other birds of prey.  They look so magnificent as they perch on light poles off the highway.  I just so happen to get close enough to this hawk right after a catch.  It shocked me because - I had just pulled into the parking lot, got out of the car and was walking toward my office building when lo and behold a huge hawk flies toward me with its prey in its talons.  I said to myself -- grab the camera ( I don't know how to work my camera phone) and take a picture.  I approached slowly -- someone getting into their car caught my attention so I knew I had little time to squeeze off a few shots before Hawk too off.

Attention all Home BuyersPlease do not be frightened by the recent mortgage commotion. Rates are still wonderful and guess what for all those who was pushed out of the market in the past three years, here is your chance to purchase a home at a great price. This is also a great time to purchase investment properties. My investor clients are doing great. So get off the fence and into the action, you will be pleasantly surprised.
