Exchange Rates

I’m going to wrap up with an important talk about the money. We’ve mentioned this a few times throughout the show but I want to make sure to underline this point because it’s really important. Now think about when you get a mortgage here in the United States. You lock in right. Right. And during that lock-in. The rate on your mortgage is guaranteed.

Mortgage rates go up during your lock. Well good for you. Because you don’t have to pay that higher rate. Your mortgage is locked in. On the other hand however if mortgage rates drop during that period, Well in most cases you’ll be stuck paying the higher rate. be But most borrowers consider that to be okay because at least it’s what they agreed to in the very beginning. No surprises. People like that.

Fall Home Maintenance

We are back with our special show the fall market. Hard to believe that fall begins this coming Friday but it does. And it’s one of the most important times of year to pay close attention to your home, and the maintenance you put into it. So let’s wrap up Today’s Show with a few words about making sure your house is ready for fall and Beyond.

Number one and if you’ve heard this once you’ve heard it a thousand times. Change the filters on your heating and air conditioning system. A clean filter lets the air flow through easily and quickly and efficiently. A dirty filter makes the system work harder and as it works harder to push air through, it’s using more energy, which is costing you more money. So so take a few minutes to just make sure your filters are fresh and clean and new.
