Time to sharpen that purchase money mortgage saw again! Monday saw a continuation of gains from Friday but volume was light so not a very convincing day-this morning we show MBS trading very early at just a tick or two under the closing price, and 10 year treasury yield just sneaking over 3.30%.  Flight to quality yesterday with more Portugal fears in the headline, as all the southern EU countries cannot seem to get out of the news-nor can Ireland.  Today the fears seem less as Portugal says they won't seek a bailout-just as Ireland said just before they took one.  Anyway, today we have light data day except we have a good size 3-year treasury auction that will settle at 1pm ET, and with another big snow event heading for NYC markets will slow down as the city heads to the stores for br...

Certified Short Sale Realtor Serving Lees Summit, MO Lees Summit, Missouri (MO) distressed homeowners who are behind on the mortgage payments and proactively seeking foreclosure options may want to consider selling their property as a short sale and work with a local Realtor in Lees Summit who specializes in selling short sales. In real estate, a short sale occurs when the sales price of a property is not enough to payoff the loan for the home.   If the homeowner is unable to come up with the difference owed to settle the transaction (selling short), the distressed homeowner may be able to work with the lender in hopes the lender agrees to accept a discounted payoff.  Meaning the lender will release the lien (s) that is secured to the property upon receipt of less money than is actually...
