The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Manchester NH for September 30, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Manchester, New Hampshire. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened down 2/32 at 101.28. The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon closed up 1/32 yesterday at 101.34 (as shown by the white line). MBS is currently trading down 3/32 at 101.25 (as shown by the blue line). Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage interest rates.

Condominium average sales prices spiked from $164,048 to $176,774.  This is an unusual statistic for current market conditions showing a declining market.  This aberration may be due to the fact that there were only 14 units sold and they were not at the entry level.  Consumers can now consider affordable homes as a NH first-time home buyer as the median sales price for a condominiums is 73% of the median sales price of single family homes.  Financing continues to be a barrier for many condominium sales as there are more options for single family homes.

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®. This represents t...

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. ...
