October 31st – Nevada Day

Nevada Day, officially October 31st, is the day Nevada became a state in 1864. Carson City’s Nevada Day parade and celebration is among the oldest ongoing parade activities held in the Silver State and with the exception of Hawaii and West Virginia, is the only admission day activity of its kind in the country.

Nevada entered the union as the 36th state. The first European settlers of the state came for its mineral wealth, and the gold and silver labored out of Nevada’s famous mines created the state’s first boom period.

The state’s name is taken from Sierra Nevada, a mountain range shared by Nevada and California. Nevada which is spanish for “snow covered”, is called the Silver State for its many silver mines, the Sagebrush State for its abundant sagebrush and the Battle Born State because it was admitted in the Union during the American Civil War.

Affordable Interest Rates

Interest rates are still at record lows which makes now a great time to buy.

Over the past 50 years, the all-time high for an interest rate was 18.45% in October 1981. The all-time low for an interest rate was 3.35% in December 2012. As of Monday, a FHA 30 Year Fixed rate was at 3.875%. The normal average interest rate over the past 50 years is 9.1%.

Looking at these numbers, you can see that there is more room for interest rates to go up than there is for interest rates to go down, so why wait?
