Plymouth, MA Real Estate News

I just read about a national poll commissioned by Bankrate.com & to everybody's surprise, 90% of homeowners say they don't regret buying their home despite the nationwide tsunami of foreclosures, short sales(my growing speciality) and loan modifications. I feel that as realtors we could & should get this story out more as it certainly puts a more positive spin on the real estate market than all the "doom & gloom" portrayed by the main stream media! And it may help cautious buyers to take the final step.

Plymouth Homes and Gardens Spring Networking Tour - First Annual I was pleased to participate in the first annual Plymouth Homes and Gardens Spring Networking Tour the other day. It was a warm and humid morning, but it was easy to take riding in the open trolley. There were approximately 20 local Realtor's® on tour and we managed to visit 17 homes! That is pretty amazing considering the size of the town of Plymouth. It was a long day, but we moved along rather quickly not missing one of the scheduled homes. First stop was my listing at 42 Union Street and I was pleased to have it included in the tour. Of course, it was one of my favorites, along with a few other ocean front homes. My seller was pleased to have the group tour the home as well. We left Sovereign at 9:30 and concluded the ...

Mortgage Rate Forecast for May 5, 2010 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage rates today: What Mortgage Backed Securities Are Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened at 100.91 this morning - the same as yesterday's close. At 9:30 AM, the 4.5% MBS coupon was trading at 101.06 - up 5/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes up, the yield comes down - and so do mortgage rates. I expect that mortgage rates will be up to 0.250 points better in price this morning as compared to yesterday.

Mostly, this has to do with lowering your out of pocket costs by minimizing the amount of """"prepaid interest"""" you pay on your mortgage at closing. Interest on your mortgage begins running from the date your transaction closes, but most loans are due on the first day of the month. So when you close, you """"pre-pay"""" the interest between the closing date and the end of the month.. For example, if you close on the 29th of October, you prepay one day of interest to cover the rest of October's interest. Your first payment will be due December 1st, when you will actually be paying November's interest. As a different example, if you close on the 6th of November, you prepay 24 days of interest. This means you have to bring in more cash to close your real estate purchase than would have...
