Clearly Enjoying Our Summer

Summer is here and we are so lucky in San Antonio to have a lot of fun choices for things to do with our families. We have multiple amusement parks in the area, water parks too, and lots of ways we can vacation right here at home! Part of enjoying a good vacation is being able to see everything clearly.  We definitely recommend a good pair of sunglasses for protecting your eyes from the intense summer sun.

Some economic analysts say that the possibility that the economy will go into overdrive and inflation will skyrocket is a much more frightening possibility than the current recession.

One inflation hedge nearly all of them point to is real estate. Owning it outright is the best scenario, but if that’s not possible, a low-rate, 30-year fixed mortgage is the next best thing. As inflation drives up salaries, mortgage payments will stay the same, analysts point out.
