Good news for the economy in general but not good for those that are in the midst of trying to get a mortgage. THE UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBER DROPPED TO 8.9% WHICH IS THE LOWEST SINCE EARLY 2009. 192,000 jobs were created in February (the most since May of 2010). These are both huge indicators that (supposedly) the economy is recovering which applies even more upward pressure on interest rates. If you’re thinking about it at least call me. It never hurts to talk!
