Temporarily Out of Service :(

by Desi Sowers

On Monday, January 17th, the New River Valley Association of Realtors will change MLS providers.

While I'm hoping this is a painless process, please note that the Search Listings tab on my website will be temporarily out of service.  Same is true for my daily email service

The new MLS system has been much anticipated and I'm excited about the improvements and enhanced features that you will no doubt enjoy.

Please check back in just a day or so and hopefully, all will be up and running.

Have a great day!

The average 30-year fixed rate mortgages dropped slightly to 4.94 percent for the week. Meanwhile,15-year fixed rate mortgages were 4.32 percent for the week, while 5-year adjustable-rate mortgages held nearly steady at 3.99 percent. 

The drop in rates suggests the financial market may have overreacted to the inflation fears that had originally pushed rates higher in late December, according to 

"Unemployment is starting to stabilize. Housing is stabilizing, although there are still soft pockets. Stocks are up, and there are inflationary fears with energy prices going up, so directionally and logically, we're in for potentially higher interest rates," predicts Anthony Hsieh, chief executive of, a direct mortgage lender in Irvine, Calif.
