That the media causes everybody to think that the big bag mortgage companies are against Shia. And there're gonna require DNA tests and possible all that garbage -- did you see if you can hear. The truth of the matter is it isn't that that's fact at all. It's actually not difficult to take -- your credit right a little bit of money in the bank and you dig your job you know freedom little job history a couple of years in the same line or at least a month on the job that you're now. It's not hard to get alone folks they -- really great terms. Rates are still low do not be afraid if you're rating right now I think you might wanna buy regular session up 51291988. Pilots are ready interest rates everybody's always like -- tell me about -- what's going on in the -- were freaking out erase -- and 5% that's well probably. Yeah after -- truth is probably -- Wii -- we've been saying it the last few weeks I think ready to Q1 you know it with a tapering that's going on reverend I have to see rates. Close if not driver over and you know historically. My twelve years in the business that's articles along with some folks. Like Fred Myers who's going to be in your little death with a realty Austin but -- price talk about us and rates -- I got into the business he's hit rates were seven and a half the average rate while I've been in the business was around 66 and a half and we're still. Still in the forests of things are good so this week in the news. Same story rates are still holding jobless Clinton jobless claims are down 20000 this month. Nonfarm payrolls are projected at a 170000. It's down. You know from a 185000. Which -- what was expected in the economists -- cold winter weather which is kind of a cop out. It's predictions be wrong on both accounts or think of it it's too cold for people except the unemployment office. Which is why the unemployment it. Was Tony that Leslie and don't know whether it and -- that it was too cold for employers to hire people so that's why the employment figures were down a little bit that the payroll figures were a little bit I mean that. At this point who knows -- that they said that 75000. New jobs created last month in the -- actually December was a flute for a I don't know it was a fluke. But but he did hit that is what we can believe he's I am just saying that I like to say is minus knob and all it takes is a Smart man to say something stupid and breaks kind of hit it exactly -- are -- and rightly. So makes headlines beat the stagnate stagnant market interest rates really haven't changed so. Hear your interest rates the Freddie Mac averages in Iraq quoting you interest rates that we can give you an APR on here. The Freddie Mac overnight averages your conventional thirty year fixed. Sit at about four point 375. Year your fifteen year fixed percent -- you empty investors may be a 45 to sixty years old looking about it. That last house that you want to grow old and fifteen year fixed three and a half percent the ten year fixed mortgages which is. Kind of if you do a ten year fixed your pain that thing off almost as fast he paid her car on. 3.3 75. On the ten year fixed mortgage. Your FHA you're US TA your VA all hovered around forty quarters or your government products about four point 25 times and Jumbo loans Jumbo loans or any loans. Over 4171000. Here Austin covered about four perhaps some guys. Guys rates are still calls hello I mean. In my first house that my wife and I about we were at six and a quarter yeah. I did refinance down defiant few years ago and it just doesn't have made sense for me to refinance again they keep telling myself that we're gonna sell this house but what has eleven. Even back 20045. I mean I think out of their first and second I think the first list was us six and a half and in the the second mortgage was. I mean eaten half 9% -- that we do every artist is conforming. Amin -- -- A paper credit I mean these guys are great credit great job. So six and a half on the first miss them. That cycle that we just refinance somebody a couple of days ago that was a six and a half on the first. And they written nine and a quarter on the second he's out there the other house back in the sub prime days on an 8020 -- only allowed that finesse. And -- we literally save them about 400 bucks a month in Iraq and got him into this new loan with literally no money in the pockets of the refinance boom is not over yet you didn't miss the boat completely you missed this 3.2 five for hates that a thirty year fixed but they're still.

Later finest on the web at real estate radial atx dot com hi guys we are your jugular a little -- the studio. Dear -- in the commercials. We get a great yes yes Fred Myers list with a realty Austin. Long time Austin. Broker realtor -- in the business for Haver. But we're talking about interest rates because -- is talking about mortgage contenders and -- you -- -- little bit higher four and a half threat but tell this tell agree over the audience oh we're. Talking about so wolf guys thinks -- -- -- well I was waiting for my turn I was listening to that segment in particular myself. In 1980. I had moved from Detroit -- -- I had been working for Warner brother records. And if they want it they had field reps so they filled the gaps between their corporate offices with fielder so I took on southern Texas. Based out of Houston. So I knew nothing about mortgages they knew nothing about any of that and while I was in contract on my house which they paid one. 125004. The interest rates moved from 14%. To sixteen after that in the back. And I ended up spending 50000. A month -- home valued at a -- into a 5000 and I asked you guys so what ways are home at a 125000. South Boston. Today's interest rates -- will with a payment -- could it be about six -- it -- -- via. Thanks so I could've had a Ferrari. Can it some golf club access to sleep or anybody scouts -- grounded -- -- kind of evidence of the story about my daddy loves to chime in talking about the 18% interest rates that we had our house rivers has later Elena and Indio is tells me that's why we -- data. It's. And now so for those used to it and now you're -- real state radio stay clean -- and I think we got Fred Myers here I think he's -- property reductions Fred. Here with with realty Austin Fred thank you for being here how are you sir good -- good so. We got five known Fred for for years in his view out their -- price have from the different if you bought a couple homes are sold a couple of homes here in Austin but. Fred may have lots of news lots of lots of things happen in your world I mean let's let's stop let's talk about so. How do you get that in the rural state business. I play and primarily unemployable. And I think gotten fired from every time they ever had. I'm note sure is fully you know I'm an -- record executive Serge and I had been. In on the music business for a long long time with some of the biggest bands on the planet. My third day in the job was Van -- its fifth day on the road -- and so that was my introductory to Warner Bros. was my assignment -- go be with them you have -- and you know we're homeless say hey if this current -- easy if you thought so anyway and then I had a chance to work for virgin records Richard Branson which is a wonderful experience stones Janet Jackson Tina Turner. Videos great. But I saw the writing on the wall and truthfully they let me live in Austin so under the local music scenes radar. I was only major. Executive that lived here and I was raising my kids and it was important that might downtime was our time. Yes -- get involved in the local scene at all. But this radio station all the other ones that that are in this town I would be bringing Lenny Kravitz -- -- -- or somebody to the studios when they were in my territory. -- so long and short of it is right to left the business. I got fired up and down. It is 1999. -- think it's so I got my real state license in 2000 and dumb. I learned the game and how to play it because unfortunately realtors it's a pastor career. More people had that experience through the real true than having a good experience and it's unfortunate because everywhere it has. Why guys that they're gonna come in make a lot of money it's easy. And they don't really realize that we are problem solvers and our world is about making this whole process. Smooth easy enjoyable and then we use our expertise on value and strategy and so on and so forth. So it's not a pastor career but unfortunately it gets mocked up with that yeah. So once you learn the game and how to play it like any other industry I got really good at it and I really enjoy it. And then -- kind of revolved around new construction. -- I was really blessed with. Some wonderful opportunities of working with three -- street ministry and homes and meritage homes and Mercedes and we know this yes -- all the big players and so I became a move corporal turf for them and then eventually I started my own company called Austin city living real state. And we header you know -- they're still in business that I was with them from the our inception in 2007. To just last year. So so now I mean ACL off the city living they -- hey that's let's turn the page so now. Now tell tell listens to you with now. And with realty Austin and I'm proud to be associated with them for the sheer fact that I decided it was a simple down my life. Get very focused on helping people buy sell and investment and so realty Austin has. Played this game of real estate at such a high level I mean if you go on the web site. You understand their company make up. They're very local they're very giving their theory into habitat for humanity year you know whatever. -- give back a lot so that meant a lot to me to but it. Gave me the ability to focus. It's yeah yeah we talk about -- just in just about every week on our show mean they did great reputation great agents some and they really know what you're doing well we knew it was just. You know three or four years ago before they really popped. It every the end of half of your transactions has the other side has Keller Williams on it out and there's actually been a really great market shift toward now you know realty Austin has a huge. Huge handle on the market here and every -- that we work with every realtor we worked with their -- their technology platform. The way that they cannot train their clients and then the do's and don'ts means great great folks over there. And accessing yummy guys like Fred everybody knows ministry for him to join that team I mean that's just another piece that powerhouse in these guys know what they're new and and out. -- slugger it is estimated that let's talk about the Fred Meyers group that wrote the Aussie well what I just decided to do was simple down so my girlfriend who is a licensed realtor in an accountant by trade and my daughter in law is a real -- and had been an assistant for realtors here in town for quite awhile and it's just stops and so we got this really funky little house on -- extra love that -- all -- it's -- -- was there there was an earlier article I've got -- -- -- records and there it's pretty fun. But it's it's got great character and it's got a great central location and it's and it's a wonderful place legal office and now I focus and my primary goal is it again to help people buy and -- I help with the relocation I'm very involved with our local chamber of commerce which is a really -- chamber. And then I've got a Condo project called overdone -- condominiums right around thirty seconds are described Robert -- it's -- -- you and I kind of ran into each other a little bit -- when that was -- kind of getting on the ground retort that went on madame -- on the lower left her. Yeah well it and basically what it is is it's exactly three miles from downtown but it's got square footage I mean are two bedroom. Two bigger studies 2500 plus square feet. We have a three bedroom that's 3200 square feet. Yet these are priced in the fives up to the 700000. Take that same budget and -- to the downtown tower -- and you're gonna get. -- that square footage shot and enormously chilly feel so -- more square footage. Less UNH -- way. I mean they're they are beautiful yet and I'm not saying anything bad about the downtown -- -- love of those around it should sit everyone has a different criteria they did. And these are more of like a town home styled home. Being a private fenced yard and things at a downtown tower dates supplement with other common areas but this is. Just the small sixteen unit project we have eight happy homeowners. And then you know I have three available like right now three available and how you describe this district west -- I have -- I have 22 bedrooms and 13 bedroom and dumb they're beautiful I mean. I'm gonna do open house this weekend but more importantly it's if you see in my neck and described them it would not have them on our website and we have a website called for doubts living dot com cut. But to see him you really get to understand whether therefore you're not. Got you so you're talking about you know I had a conversation the other day actually at the four seasons and we're talk about the chamber but you told me -- about. Well folks that are -- relocating to Austin he says something that that really. Kind of stuck in my mind that kind of Fred Myers touch that's coming up that -- that you well votes come into town and stuff like you're just like straight to the big house now I mean chooses to think. -- when she'd kind of you know it goes back to the adage of treat some in the way you want to be treated. So if I was to go to Twin Cities that I had a sling no. You know common ground. You know is familiar -- is all completely unfamiliar how what I wanna be handled. And that's important so I won the first being ambassador this town I love this town and even when I was ever to records and neither my rock bands -- my bosses would come then. I would take a month -- of -- In a state -- else they do not leave here no matter how much we offer you stay here -- retreated back. So -- -- but point is I enjoyed showing this town off and so what ideas I have a little tour. And I actually it's interactive -- make people look and get out look at Barton springs and I could feel the water yeah I think that is -- issuers and yet take -- to a little places that means that and to me -- it's a reflection of our town this. And then you know sometimes you never hear from those people again and then that's okay now. But the ones that you do I think they understood. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Realty Austin you won't want to miss this state team.

Record -- refused to be everywhere this guy announced that Fred Meyers group realty Austin we got -- here. Man good to have you Fred fails welcome back to -- to the that last segment of our show. So much talk about talk about tell you a little bit your work whereas the let's talk builders what builders had you worked with for you currently working with well. I'm currently working with -- several different level of builders but milestone. Community builders is is one of -- accounts for coming in I'm really proud to work with that group their local there a very. Very powerful local company have that again -- that local mode where they care about community they give back to build a quality home first and foremost. And therein a lot of the outlying areas and and they decent infield stuff too. They've got a great reputation. Stephen what do you know about these guys we loved working with -- I mean just this customer service all the way through but we're about builders Fred what do you think about. Every show we're -- on the low inventory market. And with the builders are trying to do in the land positioning is they're trying to give in this market you heard anything anything that your guy well you know I mean that's what they here's the thing all the major homebuilders that had positions in Arizona or Florida her anywhere else. They got pulled down by our economy because we're very fortunate we are the last people to get affected in the first ones out. And I've been running radio advertising forever nice to say that to be placed to keep people on board with what was going on. And who the local companies like David -- treatment homes buffing -- milestone. They. Weren't as affected because they didn't have positions that were true pulling them negatively got you so the minute that everyone felt more comfortable that we've turned the corner Dayton. You know sort of purchasing -- land position. And that's what's been the difference for them. -- I work -- a little another little company uncalled ideal homes and he's got its Olympic and he's got a little subdivision going out of Scofield farms. Lake Klein and Cedar Park and then a little twelve unit project in north -- converter road block. -- -- which is really critical you're gonna see a lot more that twelve homes for homes eight homes. And here's why the builder gets acre two acres it. Clearly they need to make money and they have to make money on the purchase of the dirt first. People who try to sell homes to builders don't really get that and they want to you know they don't understand it but. If they seldom builder it's kinda hassle free don't have anybody walking through your home you don't have to change anything you have to improve anything. It's an opportunity for you to hassle free sell your home to somebody know it sold to move on. But my point is you're gonna see a lot more that you see -- a lot on the east side of course. You're gonna see it you know down on the south side to a friend of -- -- Mitchell's got a project. I think is the denizens down there. You know and so they're seeking to see a lot more that sort of thing but Galileo and position is is an issue. -- got to be strategic idea in on the night the no the and I mean expressly you know these folks out there right now that there. Are her I mean we packets are talking about just a bit ago that there's only one. Condo project that stuff going on right now. New builds. We have a -- on CNET holiday where a guy you know right. There's not a lot of -- does the cranes is you have to be other build a new until we used to look out the window right now and see what 22 Ukraine's hit an idea that's my personal goal -- I want him this and men engine market a tower I mean because. That's you know that's something that we're gonna have to do as a as a city. And I remember before we went the downturn we do -- compared to what Vancouver it is. And be prepared for us and to be something like that in you know and if you've ever been there you'll see a lot. Alec Miami yeah bombed you know and it it. In a lot of ways it makes sense because it you know it's of virtual neighborhood going upward verses. Horizontally. After that -- we got to go out or he got only two choices so those -- -- -- -- -- -- a -- -- radio stay -- -- and we've got the one and only Fred Myers with the Fred -- group realty -- over here and Fred are but we talked about this whole bit last segment but when people relocating to Austin I mean I know you -- the special touch you grow from around town you -- The -- really sweet spot to make us all love this great city. But what do they need to do where they start. You know it's interesting bit because they have this the most important component is find a real true that sensitive enough to sit. Care about you were needs calm and put them first. And then it's about the schools and minutes about finding the right affordable neighborhood. -- that fits their family needs you know look at the master -- communities. For sure omitted all kind of starts with. Their commute. There affordability and then of course down the line on on its size of the home in the end the features and benefits of the specific house. -- -- -- awesome so Fred you and higher kinda getting in together a little bit and work a little bit on the chamber let's -- about about the Austin chamber of commerce how you got involved with satin and applause thank you for bringing me and I'm excited about a coup de -- get involved. I'm glad -- it I mean here's the -- mean what when you own and operate a company and I don't care what kind of company you are a part of the local fiber. And if you are part of the local fiber than you have to understand that the community itself is. It's important that you have great. Organization's. Inner City Council is certainly one organization and the city government mom. Or federal government is a part of the organization with the chamber. Is a entities that. Is really about. Developing. In sustaining. The the companies that are here right so they put as much effort into. Recruiting in it and I'm getting companies to move feared to diversify our workforce there. Because there was a time when if you chew of one. If you're -- angled and when there if you're too high or reach to automotive for -- two oil. Voted in then you're vulnerable and it affects the community in a really negative way. So if you can have all kinds of opportunities for people to make a living and be much more diversified. Then all of a sudden you've got a more sustainable economy and that's where I think the chamber has been so. Strong and so visionary. And then they can navigate the deferred. Me open waters of how to get in recruit companies. But they also have a retention where they wanna keep the companies that are here happy right. So that they don't move to another from community and and we have that job loss. So it's an exciting organization and I'm very proud to be a part of and it helps me stay. A few steps ahead of our our ongoing development further other industries right now it. They were lol on here in town that maybe there working on yes. Thank you for that's -- that's a great question manufacture. Since Tony was very fortunate in being able to grab the Toyota plant now. And Texas is only one of five states that of taxes and mentor. And so we're working hard. Tony by county to see if there's a way that we can. The change that because it's -- manufacturing. Company moves here. And they have the goods that are kind of this year being stored and distributed from here. That tax could change everything but that also provides a blue collar look -- job opportunities that's essential. Sure you know it's essential to any community and it's and you know I group in Detroit and my dad as a blue collar worker number it really proud of what he accomplished but. -- the fact of the matter is is that's what that it community was mostly built. So I saw firsthand. When the auto industry what went down and the ramifications. Half and of course oil Houston's oil big you know so do you see things there. So I think the chamber is just a very well run organization. I think they've got -- going on. And being a part of its -- Exciting and dynamic in we're actually from time you I. According you guessed it helped me deal a membership event that there are about to do where if you are not a member of the chamber of commerce called Jason Stubbs you're deciding you. Up ahead do it got my team I -- team a six I've got three of us now some -- for three other business owners just used to be an idea for a few weeks and yet I'm Canada -- got a lot of it'll have got it -- to Bala he's got roofing company I've got I got about blame and use that insurance and of course myself but I've got a couple a couple of others. That then I've got tough on almost month we'll talk about a delicious. -- -- anyway it's so yeah that's commerce I'm excited about that up Fred I mean. Ma'am -- -- a huge supporter of -- look forward to this upcoming year. How do well listeners didn't in touch with him.

It's you know it's been being called now midtown its 32 and north -- America. And right there you've got Seton hospital you've got -- -- heart hospital you've got central market.

Com but yet bunny has now what I drive neighborhoods as we all do in your mention like apple thing in you and you cruise around. You know the -- watch all the neighbors are kind of really growing up in a lot of ways I mean. For -- is located. Right north UT.
