DSD Updates as of August
Fed Policy Continues to Slow the Housing Market
Tight monetary policy from the Federal Reserve continues to push interest rates higher. The 10-year Treasury rate increased from 4.1% to around 4.5% over the last month. These higher yields have increased the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage to approximately 7.2%, per Freddie Mac, with higher rates expected later this week.
2023 Membership Drive Results!
2023 Membership Drive yielded spectacular results! We welcomed in 16 brand new members, and an additional 30 members renewing their membership during the course of the Drive. Thank you to all of our members, and welcome to all of our new members! We have several upcoming events and would love to see you there.
Meet Brandi Picton!

Brandi is the CBHBA Autumn Associate Member of the Month. She began representing her company within the Association in early 2022. Since then, she has made a point to volunteer for every event, serving on various committees, and even joined the Board of Directors. As a Rockport resident, Brandi advocates on behalf of her community. Her presence and dedication to our Association is truly valued!
Meet Sara Azali!

Sara is the CBHBA Builder Member of the Month. Sara is a Corpus Native, continuing her family's legacy, with her brother Karo, in building the residential community in Corpus Christi. In the last year Sara has become heavily involved in the Association. From volunteering to serve on committees and attending any event she is available for, to dedicating sponsorship dollars and valued donations, Sara has contributed to our Association's mission and success extraordinarily. We are so excited to see the continued leadership Sara is bound to show.
