    Home prices continue to gain as the FHFA House Price Index for July rose a more than expected 1.0 percent after increasing 0.6 percent in June. Analysts expected only a .7 percent increase.

    Voyager 1 has indeed left our solar system and Home values increase.

    After 36 years of space travel and months of heated debate among scientists, NASA confirmed Thursday that Voyager 1 has indeed left our solar system and had entered interstellar space more than a year ago.

    Mortgage rates are rising again.  Although we are not experiencing large increases in a single day, there is certainly a rising trend.  There have not been any major headlines that mainstream news has reported that would explain the increase, however there is some less popular economic data that reinforces the notion that the economy is continuing to improve

    Home prices for existing home sales continue to remain firm despite that a little more inventory is coming on the market.  There is slight concern however in that the number of existing home sales declined by 1.2% in the month of June. Some experts tend to think that the decline is due to rising interest rates for mortgage financing however, I do not necessarily agree.
