  It takes more work and effort to get your house sold, especially when you compare the present market to where it was just a few years back. There are a few things that you need to do in order to get your house sold in a timely manner and for top dollar. First off, de-cluttering and your house is going to open up the house and make it feel even more spacious than it was to begin with, as well as make it more appealing to buyers. Majority of home buyers cannot see past the clutter in any home. This includes all personal belongings as well (such as family pictures) that you are displayed throughout the house. Any personal items that could be seen by a potential buyer should be put out of sight. By not doing this, your chances of successfully selling your house decreases significantly. Bu...

8 Quick Fixes to Increase ValueWith buyers scarcer, sellers must up the ante to convince them that their property offers what many want most - top value for dollar expended. Here are eight fast fixes:1. Buff up curb appeal. You've heard it before, but it's critical to get buyers to want to look on the inside. Be objective. View listings from the street. Check the condition of the landscaping, paint, roof, shutters, front door, knocker, windows, house number, and even how window treatments look from the outside. Add something special-such as big flower pots or an antique bench - to help viewers remember house A from B.2. Enrich with color. Paint's cheap, but forget the adage that it must be white or neutral. Just don't let sellers get too avant-garde with jarring pinks, oranges, and purp...

The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Bedford NH for October 14, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Bedford, New Hampshire. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened at 101.81 this morning - down 9/32 from yesterday's close. The chart below shows today's price trend of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% coupon: The FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon is currently trading at 100.94 - up 4/32 from its opening.

The Treasury auctions were mixed with the 3 and 10-year auctions showing decent foreign demand. Unfortunately the 30-year auction was a huge disappointment and caused mortgage interest rates to worsen Thursday. The fear of future rate hikes sent mortgage bonds lower Friday pushing mortgage interest rates higher. For the week, interest rates rose by about 1/2 of a discount point. The consumer price index will be the most important release this we...

Bedford, New Hampshire Foreclosed and Bank Owned Property When a homeowner defaults on his/her mortgage in New Hampshire, the lender will start the process of obtaining the right to sell that property at auction in order to satisfy the debt (balance owed on the mortgage). Purchasing a home at a foreclosure auction has many risks to a potential buyer (especially a first-time home buyer). There is commonly no opportunity to view the interior of the property, conduct proper inspections and in some cases, there are individuals still occupying the premises. Because of these risks, homes in Bedford, NH are not always sold at auction and the bank will instead take possession of the property. The property is then referred to as bank-owned, REO (real estate owned) or foreclosed property. There a...
