The interest rates are higher, and you might not believe it, I locked 8 loans today. Most of themare 15 yr fixed and 5/1 ARM rates. People arestarting to believe that the lowest rates were gone forever. But 5/1 ARM is at the best level now.
In previous blogs, I menthioned that the 10 yr bond should be around 1.82 level. It's very close to this number Friday(the low number was 1.84) But it went higher after Monday and closed 1.84. Let's wait tosee the prediction of 1.82 was "accurate" or not.Basically, the trend is trading within the range,and lock the rate when bonds close to 1.8x levelunless we will see lower rate with bad ECB news again.
Had lots of parties recently with great fun. Meta lot of alumnis, friends, and will be interestedin meeting my high school classmates familis in the bayarea. The good thing is that my weight is stillat good shape with those parties.
Ran best race the past Saturday with 8:13 per mile,better than my last race pace of 8:15. But I only ran10 miles Saturday. Hopefully I can run 1 minute fasterMarch 9th with my 2nd half marathon in 2013.
