If we can definitely listen up again next Sunday will do populist -- begin with a bring in new sets. Facts of the cool and we like to let's -- a little bit we like to do this every week. When we came in if we have time and now is we like to talk a little tech. In a little segment we call tech corners and basically we have tech items that are helpful. In the real estate market during house's sore or condos or whatever. What do we got up this week it's all right tech -- this week we've got an application. That's called jelly. Majoli peanut butter jelly time -- tell well you know it's it's it's this this that's pretty cool this guy Biz Stone. That probably doesn't ring a bell but Twitter does. They can -- If this guy founded Twitter economy in DC strive for a chart data he's he's -- poor Korea right. -- anyway the basic principle here is it's it's a way that you can use your your social. Network and and your friends and the whole premise is this is your friends it in you or social network probably knows better than Google also were targeted. FaceBook. -- -- -- -- in what they do say take those two. They may put them together so you your Twitter and and your FaceBook kind of kind of merges. And the whole point is saying I think the easiest way to explain this is just go to an example. I was at the W the end I walked in to. -- bathroom of the movie theater Alps while this tile is awesome cool now that tiles in my bathroom and going through the process to try to find that title is tough so you can go -- the W. You beat wash your hands you look down at -- White -- counter tops great we can take a picture of that. Then you can jelly it. In jelly will throw it out to all of your Twitter followers. And the people that you follow your FaceBook friends and their friends and it gives them an immediate. Opportunity to reach out he would say I know that as it's at Florida court or that's called. You have to porcelain -- to about one -- you know whatever it is they can they can give you specifics on that. So. You know basically get thousand professionals Chiming in on what it is yeah yeah that it easily to Google to now it doesn't it's kind of it's he wants to take the place to do -- -- discuss and that. Mr. Biz Stone mr. Twitter. -- he just sinks its you know CITIC Group going in it's I mean how can you Google picture right I mean can she can -- -- that you probably can. But but his whole thinking it's just that you if you walk in. -- restaurant you see a bar stool. Or if you. If if you run into somebody that you haven't seen in awhile if you think some -- famous I mean Indy -- picture that you take of anything you can throw it out there and people tell you wouldn't be here crew can come back and Antalya and you have to believe what they tell you because it's online -- -- -- have you noticed -- -- so anyway that that's tech corner of the way guys every week we try to bring you something pretty pretty neat so if you got one check out jelly. Android iPhone. Don't go go grab it it's pretty collapse. Very cold very collide Inglewood everybody likes to talk about. Mortgage matters -- course Jason nine who work for the Texas he met supreme lending or. Supreme when he did about four billion in a residential mortgages in 2013 so we're not a little company -- worried about forty states. Our local office here. About 29 employees strong we have two more starting next -- -- we'll be up to 31 employees and just pretty great considering three years ago we were at twelfth yet but if and that's all attributed to this is crazy. Real estate market that we have here in Austin for free nice guys to show that has a little bit to do it but pretty -- and we're kind of the big deal in our -- it. Anyway let's start up mortgage matter site so some good news rates actually are down a little we got three weeks in a row we've seen uptick in rates and everybody's freaking out -- that's real laughter loads eccentric sector sector. All the economists. I don't know who pays these guys but they're they're saying -- that tell you know the economy is picking up in all the signs -- -- -- the economy's picking up and even into the -- December half the economy's picking up I'm. They thought we you're gonna see -- jobs report at the end of December of 200000. Gains. In the nonfarm payroll and that's what everybody was predicting. Well things didn't go as planned the hand of the economy league written in 1980000. All it takes is this for Smart got to say something stupid and I think to build the market so -- so that it will believe anything they say it is actually so anyway duly fell -- 1101000. Jobs sure which is -- -- excellent that the markets react to stuff like that it reacts with a shot a sharp drop in the stock market with the -- About the stock prices which lead to a nice improvement in mortgage rates so. You know we never want our -- innings we never won her for a one -- we never really seen that stuff drop but. If you're buying a house it's kinda good news for you because the bond market improves and rates improve a little bit. So let's do the rates real quick before -- in the nitty gritty of mortgage matters can not quote rates legally online because like I'm sorry on air because I cannot give you an APR. So we do every week is we just -- be the national averages through Freddie -- -- Freddie Macs and we've moved down a little bit on your conventional thirty year fixed you're gonna be about four point 5%. For a half percent and today if you listen last week. We're four point 625 to four point 75 so that's. That's a pretty good little little jump down that'll save you 25 to 35 dollars a month on a 2000 dollar mortgage folks. -- your fifteen year fixed for Baghdad and a three point 625. Your FHA you're USDA your VA still hovering around for a quarter that's down from four point 375. Week over. -- your Jumbo loans Jumbo loans -- loans over 4171000. Governor a four and a half some and we've -- to the social before Jumbo money is now is chief has conventional gas we haven't seen. In years and years and years and for his mind this is this is Wall Street getting back in the market is Jumbo investors or private banks all right this is private pools of money. And -- the interest rates are fantastic and I think they're really looking for. These high income Americans to kind of bring that market back a little bit long term you know maybe offer make accounts and stuff like that to be locked -- months out. Heck yes. I like half my pipeline for February yesterday did bush could ansari on Friday fess up things again I Wear it where -- notice from the Booth. We got to take a quick break we come back we're gonna continue talking mortgage matters would not touch on. Interest rates a little bit more but more importantly.

Mediator finest on the web real estate radial atx Dhaka. I game you're just tuning in we're talking mortgage. Matters we just finished talking a little bit about real estate we talked a little bit about mortgage rates. Talked about me and Stubbs and that will be got going on the week's super important that's you know we went our audience that kinda. Get a feel for who we -- concern you know and I think it's amazing you know somebody's personality can actually comes over the phone picture and you know I I get to see it every day when I take loan applications and were pre approving people for loans it. You actually get a feel for somebody over the phone which is nice. If you get a feel for us he can tell that they were little silly where we're kind of goofy and he's got a he's gonna have to be light -- to be in the business we're in whether it's real estate title. Or a title attorney -- Bora Eva -- of realtor and a mortgage broker whatever -- it's a stressful business and it takes a certain animal -- for each of us to be able to do it couple shows back you mentioned how many people we come up with that it takes to complete the home. Buying train 7070. Seventeen between it's. You know the the mortgage folks. The realtors involve the assistants. Processors -- processors underwriters. Closers funders all the title completely escrow officer aren't the people over the poignant and actually research everything the appraisers the survey here. The inspector there the actual closers. Who appear goes on and on and on seventeen people so. If anybody tells you get real estate doesn't run this country they're full of it yet because it's a major major piece of this economy in this economy back going and so. If you think about buying a house let's do it that's what we do they -- -- and get some advice from us listen to some tips -- will give Diego a term buy something that's fine so that's gonna make everything better in this economy it's if it. All right if you miss the interest rates the conventional thirty year fixed ever afford to have the fifteen year fixed around three point six. FHA UST ABA four and a quarter so those are really low right now. And your jumbos are still sit around for a half so. Something cool though I wanna touch on just for minute. Back in November you heard on the show. Mae and Freddie Mac decided they're gonna do away with the 3% down conventional loan or right now now FHA still has their three and a half percent down loan. And the VA still has there's 0% down loan in the USDA rural and still has their year -- 0% loan. But tech conventional did away with their competitor 3% loan behind so -- back -- to requiring. 5% down on a conventional loan. So what they did there was -- 5% down and then they said well let's allow for a 2% gift. But the borrower still needs to bring 3% of their own money their own money in little Jim -- bank account to the table to buy that house. Well they got a little bit to push back and that the powers that be up there in Washington -- gonna name any names -- who these people are up there. -- -- -- -- -- And this change is gonna come out to -- later on this week we've already be getting noticed from the mortgage insurance companies and from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They're you know allow all 5%. Of the down payment on a conventional loan to being gift. You're probably asking that did not think it was gonna go that way it did -- this -- -- -- Grassley would gift is a gift as when a family member. Or not aunt or uncle or whoever comes to insist that says little Jimmy I'm gonna give you too angry and towards the -- this house. So they can DB 5%. Of the down payment on a 95%. Conventional loan. All can be gift Oscar race -- just when you got -- sources in no seasoning your house or. Well you'll you'll source that you do a gift letter home from the relative affect if it's. That the government loans allow -- also. But I with the government loans mom and dad have to show bank statement a lot of time mom and dad don't like the show and thanks to and its fifth so the conventional as you actually don't have to have the statement you just have to have a receipt of the wire showing that it's coming out of their bank account. And then receipt of the wire heading to the title company and then a gift letter which is something no Linder. We -- supreme -- will provide due to fill out her -- neat neat product he says if you first time homebuyers for those of you were a little bit short on cash. Mom and -- your rich uncle Jim become men. -- year sorry gift to you know nothing 5% down payment. Andy get into it you have as you guys just give -- engaged out there and you look at buying a house I mean that's a perfect Honda to get that house gift so. Seems he's coming decent credit and if you flatter and yet he gets good credit to get a stable job and -- in there and conventional loans are really not that hard to get folks the reason why people do FHA loans typically is because they got credit problems -- If you don't have credit problems conventional as the way to go all day long. Because FHA now and he didn't hear from us last year FHA has lifetime mortgage insurance. Lifetime monthly mortgage insurance the states on that -- forever whereas conventional on your mortgage insurance falls off what you paid it down to 70%. Loan to values -- basically. Your loan balance vs the value of that house once you get down to 70% your monthly PMI can falls off your whole payment goes down. And your clear -- and stay in the house for as long as you want to. -- -- a neat neat deal I think we're gonna continue to see a little bit of loosening of the bootstraps go and into 2014. As Jason Mitchell last week I don't think we're anywhere near seeing the stated income loans come bash is it passes just yet we're -- -- -- -- a couple years of but it says that this is NIC you know it's it it helps people. And the -- fills a gap to move in that direction it doesn't mean and it fills a gap that you'd be filled. Because that -- you first on home where proven 5% of their own funds in the bank was tough -- was tough and back guys let's get in to Austin real estate market let's talk about things to look forward to it -- fourteen. -- so this is pretty cool. To. Austin master planned communities we're listed as the nation's top sellers away if you we believe that's right here in Austin, Texas. Top fifty best selling communities in the country it was in any report by John Burns consulting this -- at once a year security. Crystal falls. None of anybody's been out there crystal holes beautiful rolling canyon views. I mean -- as pristine Texas took injuries you can give it to your beautiful golf course out there you know lots and lots of -- here.

Residents all right so it's about 47000 people per year. Moved to central Texas. But the apartment construction in the single family building permits didn't come close to reaching the need I -- so what they're saying is. On a year to year basis from November 12 November 13. 8900. Building permits. All right so get 27000. People move an -- you get 8900 building permits and that's apartments and houses that is weighed down and take that back to the mid 2000. And we were seen about 171000. Building permits per year.

All right so your every year you know here we are thirty years later -- for thinking about it with them that the pace.
