Weekly Rate and Real Estate Update, 10.17.12

What an event!

Dan’s activity this week:

Ahh, the closing of the Short Sale, of course not without its own set of drama right up through the end.  Weather it was the 5 light fixtures of the home that were taken by the former owner and then some of them returned, or funding pushing the closing from morning to the evening, it was a hectic day but in the end, my clients now own their new house.  After some fixing up it will be their home.

More multiple showings on the listings in this last week!  One of the homes we received a contingent offer that my clients accepted.  So now that buyer just has to sell his home and we are good to go. 

I've got a consultation tomorrow with a past client who needs to sell his fiancée’s home.  There are also two other prospects who are in the process of getting ready to sell. Although Fall just started, we are thinking Spring of ’13 now!

WOW!  We had over 150 people come to our Irish Fall Family Fest!  A great turn out and the rain held off for us.  Unfortunately, the wind did not and forced the cancellation of both the rock wall and bounce house…we didn't want to be in the news for kids getting flying off the rock all or the bounce house rolling down the street in 50 mph wind!  We called in a Magician last second and he did a fine job along with the balloon twister, glitter tattoos, piñata and a visit from the Kona Ice truck!    

 Rates for the week

From the IBJ... The average rate for 30-year mortgages rose from 3.52 percent to 3.59 percent in the week ended Oct. 10, according to The rate for 15-year mortgages rose from 2.84 percent to 2.88 percent.
