Interest Rates Lifting…

The big economic news last week was the Fed raising interest rates for the first time since 2006. According to a New York Times article, the U.S. government believes our economic recovery is strong enough now that they can reduce artificial means of boosting it. This means mortgage interest rates will soon begin following suit, and by some estimates, we may see four additional rate hikes throughout 2016.

The historically low mortgage interest rates we have enjoyed these past several years will soon disappear, though it’s my expectation they’ll remain below 5% through 2016.

Old Furniture Made New Again…

Here’s a great article on turning old furniture into standout pieces. My wife and I recently did this with three old, boring pieces. Nolensville’s own Audrey Confer (give her a shoutout on Nolensville 411) did a GREAT job painting and distressing our furniture and making it really stand out! Now it looks like we have new Pottery barn furniture. Great job, Audrey!
