Use of Cloth Face Coverings to
Slow the Spread of COVID -19

The CDC recommends wearing a mask or cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc). Face coverings should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use. A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering.

Easy Decor to Give Your Home a Fresh Spring Look

 

Spring is a great time to give your home a new look. Whether it’s tidying the shelves, rearranging furniture, or adding new elements of decor, here are some ways you can give your home a burst of springtime energy.

Tackle Spring Cleaning. One of the quickest ways to add a fresh look to an old, crowded space is to clear the clutter from your rooms, closets, and cabinets. Sort items into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. Next, give the uncluttered spaces a thorough cleaning to make them sparkle.

National Monthly Home Sales Declined,
Home Prices Increased

 

Existing-home sales rates have been fluctuating over the past few months, and the trend continued into January. Sales were down 1.3%, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Most of the sales regions across the country reported minimal to no changes in sales, but significant sales declines in the West were enough to influence nationwide numbers. January sales improved slightly in the Midwest andRead More

Market Volatility Is Affecting Mortgage Rates

 

In early March, the 30-year rate plunged to its lowest level in 50 years, at 3.29%, when the Fed dropped the federal funds rate to zero. Market fears stoked by concern over the global outbreak of COVID-19 helped drive down bond yields, which are tied to mortgage interest rates.

Featured Testimonial

by Kevin

We were in town for the weekend, looking for a rental, as I would be moving here with my girlfriend, to begin a new job. Spent all day Saturday and part of Sunday looking at options in the area. Most were dirty or not well taken care of, and we were getting very discouraged. Literally moments before we were going to give up and head back to Iowa, we made contact with Lisa, who went out of her way to show us a rental townhouse she had available. It was perfect, and she was amazing. I would gleefully recommend her to everyone, as she goes above and beyond to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Can’t thank her enough, and she will be our realtor for as long as we live in this area!!
