Fanny versus Freddy

OK, I shall settle the argument right here and right now. I’m attracted to the legendary ladies of Fanny, but Freddy’s legacy is beyond compare. I’m not talkin’ mortgage stuff here, I’m talkin’ rock and roll. Fanny are the Godmothers of Chick Rock.

And once sufficiently rebooted in a few years, there will be a direct effect on the purchasing power of Intown Atlanta buyers. When rates go up, Intown Atlanta buyers will lose some of their current stretchability. And, when rates go up on Intown Atlanta buyers, some Intown Atlanta sellers will inevitably have a “shoulda woulda coulda” moment – they will recall the heady days of Spring 2013 – the fastest market ever in … [Read more...]
