We have 3 new reports this week released by media outlets and the sentiment in all is good for housing. I think CNBC’s reports that mortgage rates have “tanked” is a bit strong, but they do seem to be trending lower and if they continue into the lower 4% range that will bring even more buyer’s into the market. Historically mortgage interest rates have been closer to 6% so these rates are still really good!
I like to check in on the surveys and media reports from these different outlets and when they all start reporting the same thing you at least can get an idea of the psychology of the real estate market, which is a big factor.

Today I’m relaunching the Joby Slay Real Estate Blog. I launched it a few years ago through a different service and became dissatisfied with the control it had over my content and domain. My www.jobyslayrealestate.com domain freed up again and I grabbed it back!
I hope to bring you some new content on a regular basis that either helps or entertains the readers. I may re-post some old content that I feel is still relevant and informative.
My focus is Palm Beach County real estate and the stories, issues, and influences that impact our market in one way or the other. I’ll share new and old ideas, observations, helpful hints, properties for sale, advice from stumbles and triumph and I guess anything else I might find interesting enough to share with you.
