Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are enjoying the weekend and this beautiful Southern California weather. I want to share this article with you, from the Los Angeles Times,  that caught my attention... The average interest rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dropped to 4.95% this week from 4.97% last week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. The mortgage giant's weekly survey asks lenders what rates they were offering -- and the upfront fees they would charge -- for borrowers with good credit and a 20% down payment. Upfront fees averaged 0.7% of the loan amount.

A big congrats to Tom Hanks and his family for becoming homeowners in Pacific Palisades! This is the largest sale in Pacific Palisades since January 1st...but I suspect that pricetag should umbrella most future sales in Pacific Palisades this year. The neighborhood's value just went up :) Here is the article from ABC.... PACIFIC PALISADES (CNS) -- Tom Hanks bought a 14,500-square-foot home in Pacific Palisades for about $26 million, which is believed to be the biggest real estate transaction in Los Angeles this year. Hanks bought the contemporary four-bedroom home from movie producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, real estate sources told the Los Angeles Times. The house, built in 1996, was listed at slightly more than $26 million on Blockshopper.com, a news and market data servi...
