Last week after the FED announced they would purchase $600 Billion of Mortgage-Backed securities backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae, the mortgage interest rates dropped.
The move by the FED was designed to help increase the availability of credit while lowering the interest rate. And it certainly has lowered the interest rate. Not just by a fraction but by 1% from 6.5% to 5.5%.
Unlike a retail store that advertises a price for a certain period of time, interest rates are unpredictable and move on a daily basis. And to make matters worse, there is no one out there that can accurately predict how long the mortgage interest rates will stay at the low to middle five-percent range.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
