Mortgage Rate Perspectives


PEAK Disclosure- pull up a table

I picked up a few used books that caught my eye in September when I was returning home from picking up a load of patio stones at our friend Dave’s. I was winding my way through the roads in Brockville and came across this garage sale that had moved up to free status , near the end of the day. Got a lot of stuff , and this morning I pulled these books out to take to the office for review. 


The first was The Devil’s Blade is Dull by Randy Tunney, from Athens, Ontario, Canada. A story of his life prior to being a prisoner in a Canadian penitentiary. The book was published in 2008. Looks interesting, his and his wife’s ministry at the time is Athens Gospel Mission. The website listed was www.free2live.org but that site does not represent this ministry now. Will have to do some research to see what’s happening now. 


Now the mortgage part of this is the little book from the Real Estate Association, written in 1984 , 25 years ago. 

The key take away here, it only went to 8% and the main tables topped out at 25% , that was the rates of the time.
