With Fall Comes Falling Rates

In the 3rd quarter, housing activity was as slow                                                   as the dog days of summer. But in October, the                                                  autumn air came and with it brought the lowest                                                    home loan rates in over a year, according to                                                     Freddie Mac.

"In October of 2012 I purchased a home – a very big step for me as a recent widow. Joanne went above and beyond with her advice and commitment to get me the best interest rate available. I could call her or email her day or night and she would always respond promptly. I would ( and have) recommend her to my friends, family and associates. Joanne is very efficient, professional and a sincere pleasure to work with."
