November new home sales beat expectations from CNBC.

This morning Rick Santelli reported a surprise ~17% uptick in new home sales for last November. It is my opinion that the December sales report may be even better. As real mortgage interest rates decline, and as the Federal Reserve signals it will remain neutral with future rate increases, home sales are responding positively.

Benzinga is reporting that an industry analyst is turning more bullish for builder stocks in 2019, suggesting a modest correction to the upside for home builders. 

If you put off buying, you might want to reconsider. Banks are competing for your mortgage business and that has driven rates down from their 5% peak last year. New home prices, although still

The Great Texas Property Tax Grab Must END in 2019

Whether he knows it or not, by the time Governor Abbott leaves office, he will most likely have presided over the largest property tax increase in Texas history, unless sweeping assessment adjustments soon occur, especially in and around Texas' largest metropolitan areas. 

While Abbott generally offers support for President Trump's Federal tax reduction efforts, home ownership has become increasingly less affordable in part due to the widespread practices of Texas Central Appraisal Districts over inflating real property values, causing property tax bills to soar.

Avoid Common Home Seller Listing Pitfalls

How long this downward rate trend repreive will continue, is anyone's guess, but for sure you can save on monthly payments with today's lower mortgage rates. 

DFW Area Mortgage Interest Rates are now the Lowest in 8 Months!
