This morning’s Master Mind with Kathy Heaney of Core Logic was very informative. She shared great ideas for target marketing from Realist. If you missed it, go take a free class at GLVAR.

Mortgage Rates:

Last week mortgage interest rates rose to their highest level of the year. However total volume of loan applications is 14 percent higher than the same time last year.

Housing Inventory:

Nationwide, housing inventory continues to tighten. The tightening inventories are likely to push up prices according to economist, Jonathon Smoke. One more reason to buy or sell now.

Lockbox and Key Exchange:

If you still have lockboxes to exchange, Sentrilock will be holding 2 more days of exchanges on February 25th & 26th from 9:00am to 4:00pm at Temple Sinai at 9001 Hillpoint Rd. Don’t forget about returning your Supra key and cradle.

Agents:

Please be conscious of your conversations and use of foul language in the office.  The noise in this office really carries and maybe offensive to clients who are in the office.
