The second video (click here) I found is more detailed and notes improvements and gains in stocks in May and June of 2010 (YIPPEE, so we have that to look forward to...if you believe in it) and they note that 2010 is a great time to invest in property! Well, I could have told you that. Write to me with your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org

Today being the Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger) is a great day to figure out your intentions for the year (similar to New Years Resolutions) and write them down on paper. The Chinese encourage people to then set these intentions on fire (in a bowel...please don't burn your house down). This releases these intentions into the air. This will be my third year doing this ritual and I believe in it 100%
May this Chinese New Year be a safe, productive, and prosperous year for you! If you find yourself on the brink of making a scary change/decision in your life, you are not alone... be brave and FIERCE like the tiger!! This is a difficult time of change and uncertainty for many people.
As always, feel free to contact me at email@example.com with all of your questions.

Purchase of $200,000 with 3.5% down payment at current rate of 5.200% for a 30 year fixed rate loan = $1,078.33
Same scenario as above with an increase to the rate of 1% for a total rate of 6.200% = $1,202.75
Total increase in monthly payment of $124.42.
To purchase at the same monthly payment as what you could with today’s rates in an economy with higher rates you would be buying a home for around $179,000. That is a decrease in purchasing power of $21,000 or over 10% less of a home!
