by redrickshaw Seattle Real Estate Tip of the Day! 5/17/11 Article by Seattle Real Estate Reel Seattle / Bellevue Real Estate Mortgage Rate Watch: Mortgage Rates getting a bump lower today from a recent increase in purchases from banks like JP Morgan who increased it Mortgage Backed Security holdings by 10%. In a slower economic recovery banks have to put their money to work and right now for the long term MBS are just the tool for part of their strategy. This comes with open arms from the mortgage market as this may be just what the real estate market needs in the peak real estate market. When we say peak real estate market we are referring to the timing in which most homes are sold from March to Mid October. Housing Starts and Permits came in below market expectations but not as a shock due to foreclosures and short sales that still saturate the market in many areas. BUT with that said Real Estate has always been local, salve locally we are still seeing and hearing from our real estate partners of new construction. Many of which are small builders who are receiving pre-construction offers. Tip of the Day: In a purchase market your offer on a home has to be strategic. Especially on a home that is priced to sell. In many cases we are hearing from our real estate partners on the Real Estate Reel that the number of days it takes to close can be a deal maker or breaker. Did you know that many of the Large Commercial banks and Credit Unions are UNABLE to meet a 30 day close and IN FACT are taking 60 days or more. 60 days is NOT attractive to a seller who wants to close as quickly as possible. Where the market is TODAY is 30 days or less. This is the time when you need a Mortgage Professional who understands and CAN meet the closing date to ensure your offer is accepted.
