Get ready for some exceptionally bumpy mortgage market conditions in the first half of 2014 as lenders to figure out how to comply with the new qualified mortgage and other rules taking effect, beginning in January.


Look for longer processing times, more rejections on QM grounds, all complicated by likely increases in mortgage interest rates as the Federal Reserve’s “tapering” of its securities purchases begins to phase in. More contracts written on home purchases are likely to fall through, and applicants are certain to find early 2014 a more challenging marketplace than they would have encountered in 2013.

For the overall real estate market, 2014 is likely to be the first relatively “normal” year in terms of sales, inventory and price changes, since the bust in 2008.


Sellers have more confidence they’ll get fair pricing, plus millions of previously underwater owners have crossed over into positive equity status in recent quarters, giving them a shot at selling.

he public perception of drones has been influenced by media reports about this technology being used in Afghanistan and Iraq. The term “drone” tends to conjure up thoughts of these machines being used for military purposes.


Communities of hobbyists with good intentions have used model aircraft and remote-controlled aircraft for decades in this country.

IThe UAV hobbyist tends to be a curious learner who is willing to share their knowledge with others. I see UAVs as a great way to get young people involved and interested in aeronautics, electronics, telecommunications, software, math and science.

The truth is that communities of hobbyists with good intentions have used model aircraft and remote-controlled aircraft for decades in this country.

I’ve been impressed by the communities that have formed to support the education and use of these remote-controlled aircraft over several decades.
