The Earth travels through space at approximately 11,000 miles per minute?

Coffee, as a world commodity, is second only to oil?

In 1847 a 15 year old baker’s apprentice did not fry some doughnuts long enough and the center was left soggy and undercooked.  To solve the problem the young apprentice cut out the center of the solid doughnuts which resulted in the doughnuts we know today with the hole in the middle!!

In 1631 a printer accidently left the word ‘not’ out of the seventh commandment which then read, “Thou shall commit adultery.”  The misprinted Bible is now known as the “wicked Bible.”

A galactic year is the amount of time it takes for our solar system to make one revolution around the Milky Way.  A galactic year is 266 million years.

In real estate, many people erroneously believe that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are funded by the government.  This is incorrect.  The funding for these two organizations is supplied by the lending institutions which receives the money from the home buyers.  This is why both organizations are able to still process home loans during the government shut down, unless they need documents from another agency such as the IRS which is shut down.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a REALTOR who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.

As always, if I can help with any of your real estate needs, please feel free to text or call me at 615 417-8182 or email me at RolandLow1@gmail.com.
