I was a Mortgage Originator in Southern Maine for four years and in those times originated many loans for buyers in the area also worked with a lot of realtors.  After a brief time home with the family, I have decided to come back but as a Realtor.  I've always had a passion for Real Estate and my Southern Maine community as well as a passion for helping people.  I look forward to helping people find the home or investment property of their dreams.   Although the mortgage market has changed in the past couple of years, I believe that my understanding of it gives me that extra knowledge to pass on to my customers and clients. I'm working for Donna Roberts of Your Real Estate co. who has been in the business for 23 years.  She has 100% close rate in Short Sales and also works with a lot o...

The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Saco ME for November 3, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Saco, ME. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened at 100.97 this morning - up 1/32 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 100.81 - down 6/32 opening.

June 2008 and buyers are still holding out........prices have come down and interest rates are still doing well...but buyers know that it is a buyers market and are expecting to benefit from it....Where many properties were selling 3 years ago 15% above assessed value...today properties are selling either at or just under the assessed value....Many buyers are hoping to come into the Maine market and get a lot for their money....but the truth is that many sellers have already marked prices as low as they possibly can....Many sellers today are having to go to closing with some cash in order to clear title...Buyers may want to understand the market that they are shopping in first of all.....for example Biddeford is a little different from Ogunquit....and the prices will dictate that....It ...
