The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Sanford ME for October 2, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Sanford, Maine. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened up 6/32 at 101.92. The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon closed up 17/32 yesterday at 101.75 (as shown by the white line). MBS is currently trading up 3/32 at 101.84 (as shown by the blue line). Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes up, the yield comes down - and mortgage interest rates come down with it. I expect that mortgage interest rates will be 0.0% - 0.125% better in price this morning as compared to yesterday. Economic Reports, News, and Events Affecting Mortgage Interest R...

In the month of February I made the TOP TEN list in our company and I love what I do. Every transaction is unique and I love to go with the flow. It can be tricky but is fun. Someone asked me today: what are you doing diffrent than all the other Agents, that are not doing well? I answered: I am a very honest and caring person. I do care about doing the right thing for my clients, even if it means the deal falls apart. This is the investment of a lifetime (for the most part) and I find it very important to have their best interest in mind. I love what I do and am an optemistic and happy, determined person. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

The Sanford Lakes Area is in northwest York County, Maine's southern most county. It is the lakes area that is closest to Boston in both mileage and minutes. This lakes area gets it's name from the Town of Sanford which is the regional shopping area for the entire lakes area.Sanford is only one hour and forty five minutes from downtown Boston but it's a world away from the hustle and bustle. Although smaller in size than the neighboring Sebago Region to the north, the Sanford area features several  fine lakes and ponds. Here's a quick travelogue sampling.Heading northwest from downtown Sanford/Springvale on Routes 109/11 you soon will come to a large fork. I first came to this fork fifty years ago and still get goose bumps as I view the length of Mousam Lake. The right fork, Route 11, w...

   If you are thinking about buying a home, think about building. You get what you want,not what someone else wanted. You are involved in the site selection, design, appointments and everything that goes into the house. Building new can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life. You do need to do research on the builder to make sure the builder is solid and trustworthy. You can ask to speak to the builders bank and also mortgage company's that have financed the builder's customers for references .    New construction almost always appreciates in value and if for some reason the market is down , new construction will rebound faster than existing homes. All markets a different, but in my market this has been true for many years.   New construction cost more per sq. foot than existi...

  We are having a record sales year at Patco. If we belived every thing we hear and read I think we would have closed the doors long ago. It just proves that a quailty product and hard work can overcome almost anything.
