Mason, Ohio Real Estate Negotiations: Beyond Game Theory

Game theory only sounds like it has something to do with how to win in some weekend sports outing or family board game. It's a seriously studied logical field that mathematicians delve into. Interestingly, when you study how to develop successful negotiation tactics — Mason, Ohio real estate negotiations included—you can look at them via game theory.

There is a problem, though. The further you get into the subject, the more it tends to become more and more abstract. Unless you are someone who looks forward to curling up by a roaring fire with a favorite math textbook, you won’t get very far into game theory before your eyes will begin to glaze over.

The date is set as a biannual marker for revealing what’s likely to lie ahead for interest rates. If the Fed is going to decide to raise the Fed Funds rate, it’s usually the single strongest pointer to higher mortgage interest rates. All things

Student Loans: Less of a Mortgage Obstacle than Thought

All of a sudden last month our Mason, Ohio and Cincinnati-area readers might have come across a number of new articles dealing with the same topic: the problem young first time home buyers are encountering due to outstanding student loans. The target group is the millennials—everyone born between the early 1980s and 2000s. If you are one of them, you are frequently reminded that there are millions and millions of you out there. And millions who also share the same student loan problem.
