Lending Lettuce mixes explanations of the mortgage process with relevant updates about the real estate market…and some personal musings about life and business. This blog does NOT attempt an in-depth plunge into the bond market, hedging or macro-economic theory. We do, however, seek to explain this crazy business and shed some light, using EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND language, on the mortgage industry. This blog is meant for anyone with an interest in real estate and real estate finance – from Realtors and other real estate professionals on down to homeowners, home buyers or just ‘home dreamers’. Let us, at Lending Lettuce, peel back a bit of the mystery!
