Hot Ticket in Monmouth County This Weekend . . . The County Fair!

What are you doing this weekend?  Going to the Fair?

The Monmouth County Fair only happens once a year, and as far as we're concerned it's a no-miss local event.  There's a ton of fun for the kids with rides, fishing, pig races, and lots of unique entertainment.  Not only do the kids have a blast, but they get the opportunity to connect with animals up close and personal.  Of course there is plenty of fun and entertainment for the adults too.

Enjoy the weekend!  Hope to see you there!

What are economists predicting for the upcoming year?  And what does that mean in terms of the Cost of Waiting? Let's use an example to illustrate. 

Let’s say you’re in your early thirties and your dream house costs $225,000 today, and you make a $25,000 downpayment. Right now mortgage interest rates are around 4%. Your monthly mortgage payment (principal & interest) would be $954.83.

What if you decide not to buy now, but wait until next year to buy?
