False Evidence Appearing Real

Quote

Jentzen Franklin in his book The Fearless Life talks alot about fear. He says, FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real. He goes on to say that we were meant to live the fearless life. Living the fearless life doesn’t mean you’ll never feel afraid. But it does mean you can face that fear and overcome it to take God-inspired risks and succeed. You can feel secure knowing God Almighty is your refuge. You can live with courage in every situation you face. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

We would love an opportunity to serve your real estate needs. The Schwanbecks will exceed your expectations.

Rates are GREAT!!!

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.73%, unchanged from a week ago, Freddie Mac reports.

“The economy continued to pick up momentum with a solid increase in residential construction, improvement in industrial output in our nation’s factories and a rise in job openings,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “While the economy is in a sweet spot, improvements in housing market sales volumes will be modest heading into next year simply due to the lack of available inventory.”

Indeed, the National Association of REALTORS®’ Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said home sales could be “choppy when inventory levels are low,” but he noted that the economy is otherwise performing very well and buyer demand remains high. NAR released its existing-home sales report on Thursday, which showed sales slipped by 1.7% month over month in November. Read more: November Sales Slip Not Indicative of Larger Trend

Freddie Mac reported the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Dec. 19:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.73%, with an average 0.7 point, unchanged from last week. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.62%.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.19%, with an average 0.7 point, unchanged from last week. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 4.07%.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.37%, with an average 0.4 point, rising from last week’s 3.36% average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.98%.

FavXmasSoneWhat is Your Favorite Christmas Song?  Ever since I have been a young girl, for some reason “The Little Drummer Boy” has brought tears to my eyes.  When I heard For King & Country’s version, on the recent CMA Country Christmas show, it made my heart soar with JOY.  Click here to listen to what they had the pleasure to play. This is one of my favorite music artists.

Allow Us to Reward Your Service

MOM newsfeed_graphic

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.
