The mortgage back securities market has been causing interest rates to be bouncing all over this week! We went for a 30 Year Fixed rate of 4.75% last week, to 5.75% this week. They will continue to fluctuate, but it is creating a sense of urgency among buyers that now it the time to buy! If you are looking to upgrade or buy an investment property, now is the time while rates are still at historic lows! Don't let this opportunity pass you buy, especially if you are first time home buyer! They will also be changing credit restrictions for approval in July, so now is the time!

The real estate world is brimming with activity! At our office along we were up 300 showings from February to March, this means that buyers are out there. The low interest rates and prices are creating a sense of urgency for the buyers in the market place. We also have seen an increase in first time home buyers. We just closed on two homes with first time home buyers yesterday who will be taking advantage of the $8000 tax credit. This is an awesome opportunity to become a homeowner and the deals out there are phenomenal! Call me with any additional questions!
