Fannie Mae Is Fanning the Flames of Their Mortgage Delinquency Rate
Ever tried to build a fire and it got a little out of hand? Sure, you have. As we exit the heat of summer and prepare for the slowly coming Fall season, you can be sure to continue the quiet nights in front of the fire as the falling leaves grace your presence with peace and the warm colors of Autumn as we see the real estate market seem to make its gradual climb into prosperity, particularly for one aspect of the mortgage loan industry of 2015 –
Fannie Mae – Looks Like Things Are Looking Up for Mortgage Rates
In particular, it’s been reported that the mortgage delinquency rate saw a decline in July from 1.66% to 1.63%. And that’s not even the most impressive metric so far for this real estate market. Fannie Mae’s feelin’ it as this is the lowest level for mortgage delinquency since – wait for it – 2008!
So, yes – our real estate market is getting better.

The Double-Edge Sword of Real Estate: Future Property Developments
Real estate’s like gambling when you think about it. You’re basically betting on a property hitting it big. You don’t know if it’s going to hit big. You have certain factors on your side, though: property values, assessments, location, trends, that sort of thing. But you can never be sure of what’s going to happen. Even if you’re just a potential home buyer looking for your zero-down home through H.O.P.E. to Own, you’re never sure if that home’s going to turn into a good investment on your end in the future just in case you plan on mortgage refinancing or moving out.
More so is the fact that you never know what’s going to happen to property developments around
your particular real estate in question! That’s what this is all about.
Future Property Developments: Will They Help You or Hurt You?
It’s a Gamble. But What Do You Expect?

Why Being a Blog Writer Can Make You a Great Home Seller
This is great fear of many real estate agents — and brokers. The idea that you have to write. And not just poetry, or anything like that, or even a mega-novel! No. The idea of writing a blog is like slitting your throat. Do you have the time to do that as a home seller? No. You’re too busy marketing and showing homes. You do not have the time as a home seller to sit in your bed or chair, with your laptop, writing on your Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr, or even Facebook about your experiences, or thoughts, especially regarding the real estate industry. Right?
