A friend sent me this article today and it is a good read.  Also, it is nice to have friends send content for my blog.   It is a goal of this blog to have different mainstream opinions expressed.  I am not looking for the bias of either the far left or the far right.  Other sources, and there are many, are better equipped for that information.  I am sure you know where those sources are and you can track them down.

This I do know.  It is important to stay informed through several quality news sources.  News sources that are trying to provide  information rather than opinion when it comes to the economy.  We are in an election year and bias will be even more prevalent.

There is a lot of daily back and forth movement on mortgage rates these days.  Make sure you are working with professionals who truly care about your financial situation.  Also, remember that rates are still at historic lows.  Buyers, sellers, and those looking to refinance are in a good position to leverage their respective strengths.

Happy house hunting this Spring!
