September 2021: College Football Is Back!
College Football is back!
College football, and all sports in general, changed a lot over the last year. Some teams played almost a full schedule while some didn’t play at all. With things slowly starting to shape into a new normal, colleges are planning on full capacity stadium games in the near future. According to CBS Sports, Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Georgia are all in the top spots when in comes to the 2021 season. Who are you rooting for this year?
Will the housing market cool off this fall?
While we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, prospective homebuyers might be able to breathe a sigh of relief soon. Prices are finally starting to decelerate in some areas of the market as more inventory is starting to become more available. According to the National Association of Realtors, unsold homes rose 3.3% to 1.25 million from May to June this year. Although the increase in inventory is not enough to satisfy demand, it might give buyers hope and possibly buying leverage with more options to choose from.
If you are thinking about purchasing a home soon, now is the time to get things in order. Start to really work on your credit score so that you can get the best interest rates possible. Also, keep in mind that as home prices rise, so does your down payment. Start putting money aside that you can use for closing costs and your initial down payment.
