Fisher Friday Flyer – March 25th, 2016
Acronyms are fun aren’t they? You can make them up for anything. In this particular instance, that’s not a typo (yes, I tried to be sneaky that way), I made up my own – Thankful It’s Good Friday! Happy Good Friday! Jesus said “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (This, if you didn’t know, is what Easter is all about – not just the fluffy bunnies). Putting “religion” aside, it’s unreal to stop and think about what that application might mean in our lives, isn’t it? Whew! Talk about living for something bigger than yourself! We aren’t all so lucky as to have a call as honorable as to live out that saying, but we can all make a difference somehow, someway – and it doesn’t have to be grand or well publicized or even recognized. Just in the spirit of self-sacrifice through love of your fellow man. Happy Easter, everyone!
FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE
Want to see where the country is headed? I’m talking about where people are moving to and from of course! This map shows net migration from 2014 to 2015. And the winner is…Texas? Yep, with 170,000 people moving in, it is the big winner. Apparently it’s picking up about 100,000 people per year from California. In second comes Colorado at 54,000. Colorado finishes near the top yet again. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
For those a little more advanced in your national and international economics, here’s what’s going on ‘round-the-world. It’s funny (and maybe a little scary) how much we don’t see that goes on behind the scenes, isn’t it? Economists are trying to balance an economy of growth without igniting another bubble. Is ignorance is bliss? Maybe it’s just me, but I like life just a little simpler. So here’s a take-away – if you’re looking to hop into international real estate investing, the land down under has some potential for you.

REAL ESTATE WEATHER REPORT
Two Thursdays in a row where we get dumped on… a new theme? Where, oh, where shall it end? Much like the weather, in our real estate climate when we encounter a pitfall, we look to the next house as it’s a blip on the radar of housing market “prosperity.” Houses still come in short supply (although slightly higher) aimed with still increasing demand and… well you know the rest. Get out and enjoy the sunshine!
