Long-term fixed mortgage rates rose slightly over the past week while rates on adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) were little changed. Last week's release of July’s employment report showed a slight improvement in the declining labor market. The unemployment rate ticked down to 9.4 percent in July, representing the first monthly decline since April 2008. Approximately 247,000 jobs were lost, fewer than the market consensus and the smallest loss since August 2008. Declines in some local housing markets may be nearing an end as well. Median existing home prices rose among 17 of the major metropolitan areas in the second quarter from the same period last year, up from gains in only 12 of the areas during the first quarter, according to the National Association of Realtors®.

With the FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYER CREDIT OF UP TO $8,000 and interest rates  at some of the lowest rates in ra history of 20years, I am amazed why we as Realtors aren't promoting this great gift to all potential buyers? But is it that we are not promoting it or---are buyers not listening---or too panic stricken to even consider taking a chance?  After all, isn't life  itself a chance? I have read very recently that there has never been a better time to buy homes since Dwight D. Eisenhower was President. I have posted this report on my website at www.ManchesterBedfordHooksettHomes.com with permission from the author of the "New $8,000 -First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit Report,  Julie Garton-Good for all to review.  If buyers want to take advantage of this credit, they will need to act quickly ...

The City of Manchester has weathered the 1st quarter of this year and the information regarding its absorption rate is in, before I give that information out I want to explain quickly what the definition is for absorption rate. In short the absorption rate for a Town/City is the length of time it will take for the current inventory on the market to be absorbed .  The magic number looked at by Realtors is 6 months, meaning if the market has a rate above 6 months the market is considered to be a Buyers Market. If the absorption rate is below the 6 month mark, then it is considered to be a Seller's Market. The City ended the 1st quarter of this year with an absorption rate of 6.76 months, which is good considering the market we are in and the rates for some of the Towns around Manchester. ...

The 2nd annual Manchester citywide marathon is scheduled for Sunday, November 2, 2008 beginning at 8:30 am. This year both the ½ Marathon and full will take place. along with a kids marathon. Registration is now open and limited to the 1st 2,000 runners, so please register early. Last year was sold out and this year even with the expansion of additional runners is sure to do the same. The route is considered by all to be a very challenging course with many hills. While the great fall foliage will be an additional attraction, the city itself offers history, dining and just a great place to live!
