Low Rates, Low Activity

Somehow, mortgage rates have stayed at historically low levels throughout the summer, making it a very attractive time for people to be buying houses. Unfortunately, even though the rates are low, home sales activity has also been low throughout the summer.

I like to use local banks and lenders, but its helpful to look at rates being quoted on national sites like, which currently shows rates for a 30-year fixed mortgage hovering between 4.35% and 5.35% APR, either of which is a really good rate.

Perhaps sales activity will pick up as the new school year gets closer. If you'd like to move into something new before the school year starts, please give me a call at 320-894-7528 and I'll see what I can do to help you. There are a lot of good value listings out there right now - if you are ready to move, I can help you out!

Hole in One

Hey everyone,

I hit my first ever hole-in-one last week at the island green - hole #18 - at Island Pine Golf Course in Atwater, while playing in the Aggie Open. I dropped it on the green and rolled it in from about 10 feet or so. It was a lot of fun.

I celebrated by buying a beverage for my member friends on league night at Hawk Creek Country Club in Raymond, my home course.

If you want me to get results for you on your home or farm sale, call me at 320-894-7528.
I can get it done!

Take care, and have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
