Hello. My name is John Drennen and I am the Sales Manager at Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation in Las Vegas.

This is my weekly show about Las Vegas, Real Estate, Mortgages and Sports.

Per the Las Vegas Review Journal, the rumor mill is HOT concerning a Caesars Entertainment Group merger with Landry’s owner billionaire Tilman Fertitta. Caesars would then own over 50 casinos in five countries.

Now there are 5 undefeated teams in college football and only three in the Power 5 conferences as Ohio State took a HUGE Beating at the hands of Purdue. The top four are Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and LSU

People ask me all the time about how the increase in rates affects a payment and According to an article in the Las Vegas Sun, it costs about $118 a month MORE to buy the same house today than it did this time last year. Also, There is still the assumption of a Dec rate hike by the Feds, but for 2019 and 2020…there has become more uncertainty.

World Series Baseball. We have the MLB win leader in the Red Sox and an early favorite that struggled this year only to get hot at the end in the Dodgers. The last time these 2 storied franchises played in the World Series was 1916. And guess who was a star pitcher of the Red Sox at the time….BABE RUTH!!!!

The Golden Knights have started their 5 game home stand with 2 straight wins. But we still have Vancouver, Tampa Bay and Ottawa to play.

Until next time….be safe out there.
