Wicomico County, Maryland Real Estate Update
Moving over to Wicomico County. There were only 15 new listings in the last seven days. It could be part of the holiday, maybe just a slight reduction, people were busy. But 15 new listings, while we had 23 go under contract in Wicomico County.

Update on Interest Rates
What’s going on with interest rates? Well, after the FED met this last time, they decided to pump the brakes a little bit on increasing their federal funds rate. We have seen mortgage rates stay up a little bit higher. Right now, for a 30-year fixed, we are over seven percent, and it’s been holding at that range here for the last two to three weeks.
