"He can do more for others - who has done most with himself." S.D. Gordon Many of us just make the paces each day.  Get up in the morning, shower, have coffee, off to work, work, go for lunch, back to work, go home, have dinner, do some laundry/cleaning, catch some TV/read a book, then to bed.  Get up the next day and start all over again. Then there are others who work on themselves each day to make themselves better; not only for themselves, but also for those around them.  Be the best you can be and your best can be shared among others.  Success can be contagious! Simply re-phrased: Take care of  yourself and you will be able to do for others!

As a listing agent, one has the responsibility to protect the seller's interest.  But how far should one go to protect? Should you try to keep the buyer's deposit? On a recent transaction, I had a buyer who was purchasing a 2 unit home to occupy one of the units.  He was being financed by an FHA loan.  Per FHA guidelines, the buyer must take occupancy within 30 days.  The condition on the P&S was to have one of the tenants vacate the premises.  The seller was not able to meet this condition by the mortgage contingency date, so I requested an extension from the buyer's broker.  The buyer's broker attempted to contact the seller's agent for two weeks.   The listing agent did not return the calls. We needed to go around the agent to obtain the extension.  The listing agent grew angry over ...

Mortgage Rate Forecast for May 12, 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 101.20 this morning - down 12/32 from yesterday's close. At 9:30 AM, the 4.5% MBS coupon was trading at 101.12 - down 3/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage rates. Even though today's MBS prices are significantly lower than yesterday's close, yesterday was "Notification Day" which marks the start of settlement for monthly MBSs. But this has little or no effect on mortgage rates. I expect that mortgage rates will be up to 0.125 points or more worse in price this morning as compared to yesterda...

We have a lot of people asking questions about the new tax credit for home buyers. I have received a number of calls asking for more information about how the second time buyers tax credit works. So the market has a lot of activity, and I have a few more listing coming from people ready to move up. But they want to make sure we price it right to sell it quick so they can buy the next home. That is a change from what I have been hearing over the last year!

I have been asked this question by so many people over the last month. People just don't understand how it effect their credit? I am also surprised at the amount of people that are in trouble? It must be a sign of the time, I am trying to help as many people as possible to make the correct decision. If you have a question please don't hesitate to ask!

The numbers of people that I talk to every day about short sales and foreclosures are surprising. Some people want the help and others seem like they don't care? I care about my credit rating, my home, my business, but it seem like other don't care?? Do we live in a disposable society? A lot of people don't want to save anything any more. The give up on their marriage, family, work or business, homes, whats up? For those of you that do care and need help, let me know.  I will do what I can to help you get going in the right direction, or just need some friendly advise. I do a lot with first time home buyers, divorced couples, and anybody needing advice. If I don't get a sale at this time, but I can help somebody that's fine. When you do need help buying or selling a home I will be aroun...

I went to Boston today to get involved with REALTOR Day on Beacon Hill! I was a little surprised on the small number of people that get involved? I guess like everything you have a certain percentage of people getting involved. But I decided to do my part and network with other REALTORS, and Legislators. So I will do my part in trying to get the word out to the other REALTORS I work with in the surrounding area. I also sent a note to Bill Bowles (Our Representative in the Attleboro area)on his facebook page. Thank You for taking the time to read my blog. Have a great day!

I have been so busy talking to people about the market. I am amazed with as much information that is in the news still the right information is not getting to the people that need the most help! I spend a lot of time to help educate people on the options they have available. Most people are confused about foreclosure and short sale. I can see I am building a great referral business, just by the people that are being sent to me from the long term friends, clients, and past assoications I have made. I get calls everyday from somebody that said I am going to have my friend call you and see if you can help? Sometimes I wonder am I a REALTOR or am I a mentor, adviser, money manager, problem solver, etc.. But I enjoy helping people, so I know I made the right choice. I was in the Doctor offi...

Ok, May is getting away from me and I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to blog. The mortgage market is still a challenge on some deals. New criteria is stalling the closing process. But the market is going in the right direction. A total of 2 new listings so far in May, 2 more coming in next two weeks. I have 2 buyers with offers on property that we are waiting for bank approvals, but continuing to look for a non bank owned property. 2 more offers waiting for mortgage commitment, should have both approved next week. That is beside the four I have closing over the next 5 weeks. I fell pretty good for just 15 days into the month. And I am working with 2 new buyers in different stage of looking. And yes I wonder how I keep it straight, thank goodness for my datebase to keep me orga...

It has turned into a great market and I have never been busier. I have a few properties go under agreement this week along with getting another new listing. And the buyers I am getting re qualified and ready to buy, the first time home buyers are getting excited about the $8,000.00 tax credit! I hope everybody else is as busy as I am so we can all enjoy a come back! Attleboro Market has picked up nicely!
