The Federal Hikes Interest Rates Again

Quote

From our friends at the Home Team Mortgage Company:

Federal Reserve hikes interest rates again today:

The Federal Reverse raised interest rates for the third time this year, pushing rates up by 0.25% to 2.25%. Strong economic growth and a booming job market have led to the eighth rate hike since 2015, as the Fed tries to rein in the acceleration of inflation.

Currently the bond markets are acting favorably to the rate hike and most assume it was already baked into rate sheets last week with the anticipation this rate hike would come today.

U.S. Military On The Move Rebate Program

Quote

MOM

ATTENTION ALL ACTIVE DUTY, RETIRED MILITARY AND WOUNDED WARRIORS

We value your service, and we would like to offer you a special benefit to thank you.

U.S. Military on the Move® is a free real estate rebate and information program that allows you to earn cash back when you buy or sell a home (in states where allowed by law.)

To Be Eligible, you must register with U.S. Military on the Move® before contacting a realtor, and you must either be active duty, retired military (20 years of service)or a wounded warrior.

When you buy or sell a home through the program, you’ll receive a cash rebate based on the actual sales price – not a fixed amount based on a range of values – and you will receive your rebate at closing.

If you plan to rent a home, we can help. Our members will provide information about the area, counseling on local rental practices, and will send listings that meet your criteria.
