Mortgage Rates Fall Again

Average fixed-rate mortgages once again fell back to near 20-month lows. After rising slightly last week, mortgage rates reversed course this week, sending borrowing costs lower and allowing home buyers and refinancers to lock in rates that haven't been this low since May 23, 2013, Freddie Mac reports in its weekly mortgage market survey.

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Feb. 5:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.59 percent, with an average 0.7 point, dropping from last week's 3.66 percent average. A year ago, 30-year rates averaged 4.32 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 2.92 percent, with an average 0.6 point, dropping from last week's 2.98 percent average. Last year at this time, 15-year rates averaged 3.40 percent.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 2.82 percent, with an average 0.4 point, dropping from last week's 2.86 percent average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.12 percent.
  • 1-year ARMs: averaged 2.39 percent, with an average 0.4 point, rising slightly from last week's 2.38 percent average. Last year at this time, 1-year ARMs averaged 2.55 percent.

Happy New Year.   As well approach the new year, I will reflect on how the last year went.  The fourth quarter of real estate was strong as it has been for the past 8 years.    There were 96 homes in Treasure Lake sale.  There are currently 82 homes for sale and there are almost 2200 homes in the gated resort community of Treasure Lake.   It was a strong year for second home buyers.   Treasure Lake is only  100 miles from Pittsburgh and 60 miles from State College.  Located 1 mile off Interstate 80 exit 101.  Natural beauty , 2 lakes and 2 golf courses make this area a great find in the PA Wilds.

Your agent should be your advisor on how to stage your home.   I have seen pictures with dishes in the sink, shoes on the floor , clothes spread around, etc.   When looking at pictures, these is a distraction from the house it self.  Follow these few tips for showing and staging your home. 

1. put all medications out of sight. That box on the counter may be convenient for you but it also leaves them open for everyone to see
2.  Do not leave your jewelry out on the night stand.  It is pocketable.  Agents are with the      buyers at all times but it only takes a second if it is easily accessible
3.  Clear off all counters.  They will show better without all the clutter
4.  Out of siet out of mind for everything you do not use daily.
5.   Bathrooms show best without towels hanging around and shaving cream in a cabinet not on the counter
6.  Take a box and walk around your home clearing off everything extra laying around
7. Clean the cob webs
8  clean the windows , if the sun is shining  the windows can be a show stopper
9.  If you have a bread maker.....use it....bake bread
10.  A lot of loan options today do not allow chipping and peeling paint .   Fix that as to not eliminate any potential buyers because of the type of loan they are using.
