Mortgage Market Report for Wednesday February 6th, 2008The same volatility continues in the bond market.  Yesterdays selloff in stocks boosted the bond market as again investors are looking for security in bonds.  However, today stocks are trading higher and putting pressure on bonds.  Several members of the Federal Reserve are speaking today and the market may react on those comments.  Bond prices are below the resistance at the top of the trading range.   This confirms the volatile market that we are faced with on a daily basis.  We recommend floating for today but be prepared to take advantage of the favorable rates should we see any sudden changes. Thank you for listening to  http://www.contactherrick.com/  We will have another report for you, your family, your friends and your impo...

In the last year over 100 mortgage lenders have gone out of business due to the "mortgage meltdown" as most of you might now it is getting much more difficult to qualify for mortgages in San Clemente.

If you didn't make it to the San Clemente Fiesta Fair yesterday, you missed out on some great fun.  There were activities for people of all ages and by the pictures I took I think everyone could say they had a good time.  One of the most memorable for me were the comments I overheard to our active duty servicemen.  So many people came up to them, shook their hands and said Thank you for serving our country.  And yes, some of them had just returned from Iraq but you could tell by the smiles on their faces they were happy to be home.  Please take a moment and click on the link to view the pictures of this years Fiesta fair.  If you like what you see, make it a point to come visit the San Clemente Fiesta Fair next year and while you are here, don't hesitate to call me if you'd like to view...

So do you have plans on Sunday?  Are your kids making you want to pull your hair out by repeatedly saying that they're bored?  Well I've got something that will be fun for the whole family.  On Sunday, August 12th, San Clemente is hosting their annual Fiesta Fair.  It takes place on Avenida Del Mar and is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.  The street will be filled with games, food booths, a Salsa Challenge and live music ranging from tribute bands to local garage rock bands.  Because the city is expecting 15,000 people to attend parking will be tough.  Therefore, a free shuttle service has been set up at San Clemente High School at 700 Avenida Pico.  It is currently scheduled to run every 1/2 hour so plan on giving yourself some extra time. Hours for the Fair are 9a.m.-7p.m.  Direc...
