RERL-1769- Technology and its impact of lending and real estate

Covid and the lockdown did very little in the way of shutting down technology. In fact, it did quite the opposite. The pace at which professionals have come to use technology was forcibly accelerated – unless you work in real estate or lending. Two years have gone by and there has been virtually no progress in assisting consumers with the lending or real estate transaction. Joe Cucchiara and Jack Russo discuss the stagnated transaction process…

RERL-1767- Market Update – Joe’s Back!

We’re back! The world may seem like it’s getting back to normal, but the real estate market is still changing rapidly. In about a month, interest rates jumped from 3% to 6% and ending the years of all-time low interest rates. Living in Silicon Valley, it’s hard to believe that anything could touch our real estate when its inimitable uniqueness keeps the job market strong – but is Silicon Valley invincible to levels of inflation…

RERL-1765- Secure the cheap money while it lasts!

Paying off the mortgage early is that goal all homeowners work towards – and why wouldn’t you? Any form of debt is bad and you’re just throwing away money in the form of interest.
