April came and went without a noticeable increase in mortgage rates, which was expected by many experts. In fact, the first couple of weeks in May saw rates drop to record levels.  Two clients of mine locked in below 5% in the last couple of weeks.   Why? As the old saying goes, "It's all Greek to me."   The worry over Greece's debt problems - as well as other European countries' money troubles - has spilled into other financial systems. You saw what the nervousness did to the stock market, with the Dow plunging in recent weeks, and you can bet it has affected mortgage rates.   Mortgage rates are tied to U.S. Treasury bonds, the rates for which have dropped because of demand from investors who are scrambling for security amid the mess in Greece.   Last week, the average rate for a 30-ye...

Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you will ever make, with long-term financial ramifications. It calls for many informed decisions and for good advice from a real estate professional. When buying a home, you can learn from the knowledge and skill of a Real Estate Agent. What can Real Estate Agents do to help you buy the right home for you?   They will help you determine how much home you can actually afford.  I can't tell you how many times I've sat down with new clients and they tell me they've been pre-approved online and are looking at certain homes on Realtor.com and think they'd be perfect for them, but when they tell me what their monthly budget is I have to explain that with taxes, insurance and the rest they really should be looking for a less expensive home.  Not...

JANICE BOKOR BUCKS COUNTY PA LISTING YOUR HOME, HOMES FOR SALE, RELOCATION, REAL ESTATE  http://www.janicebokorhomes.com Countdown to Putting Your Home on the Market Getting your home ready for sale can take anywhere from one to six months, depending on the condition, age of the house and how long you've lived there. So before you call me your Realtor, go over the property to determine what needs to be repaired or possibly replaced. Make a list of both major and minor jobs. Tackle big projects first. Although it's tempting to wait until the home inspection and offer to adjust the price in lieu of repairs, but doing so may put the entire sale in jeopardy and may ultimately cost more. Buyers generally tack on extra dollars to any estimate. Most importantly, a major repair left undone crea...

There's no doubt that some folks have been "on the fence" when it comes to buying a house - despite the first-time home buyer tax credits, bargain prices and rock-bottom interest rates.   A recently released report, however, shows that getting off that fence might be the best move.   According to a national study conducted by the Associated Press, the gap between the cost of monthly rent payments and monthly mortgage payments is at its lowest point in 20 years. Which means, depending on your perspective, it's never been more expensive to rent or never been less expensive to own a home in the past two decades.   According to the AP article on the study, the difference between median rent and median house payment in the 45 metropolitan areas surveyed was just $256, the lowest since it sat...
