  Conforming and FHA mortgage rates in Florida have improved over the last 10 days, but that could all change this Friday with the release of February's Non-Farm Payrolls report. Non-Farm Payrolls is the official name of the government's monthly jobs report and, given the fragile state of the U.S. economy, Wall Street will be watching it closely. Mortgage rates could spike come Friday morning. Jobs are an important part of the nation's recovery. Among other concerns, unemployed Americans don't spend as much money on goods and services, and are more likely to default on a mortgage. This retards economic growth and increases the potential for foreclosures. When jobs numbers worsen, therefore, it follows......   Read the COMPLETE BLOG POST HERE:   Tying Friday's Jobs Report To Rising Mortg...

A "Housing Start" is a privately-owned home on which construction has started. It's an important gauge of housing health because it tracks new housing stock nationwide. In December 2009, starts fell by nearly 7 percent. The news is mildly disappointing but not too bad. The likely cause for the Housing Starts drop is December's rough weather conditions. It's tough to break ground when Mother Nature won't coordinate and last month was especially hazardous in a lot of parts of the country. More cheery, however, is that for the second straight month, Housing Permits exploded. A housing permit is an certification from local government that authorizes construction. After posting a 7 percent gain in November, permits rose by another 8 percent in December. It's a signal that housing is,....   R...

Despite the headlines, it's important to remember that December's jobs report wasn't all bad news. Sure, the economy shed 85,000 jobs last month and the Unemployment Rate failed to dip below 10%, but for home buyers and rate shoppers , the news was just fine. The soft employment data led mortgage rates lower, making homes more affordable for buyers. There is two sides to every economic coin. Since early-2008, the U.S workforce has been closely tied to home financing. As the economy slowed and jobs were lost, Wall Streeters pulled money from the risky stock markets and moved it to of the relative safety of bond markets, instead. Safe haven buying led mortgage bond prices higher which, in turn, caused.... Read the COMPLETE BLOG POST HERE : The Bad Jobs Report Wasn't All Bad -- Mortgage Ra...

A conforming mortgage is one that, quite literally, conforms to the mortgage guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Each year, the government sets the maximum allowable loan size for a conforming mortgage, based on "typical" housing costs nationwide. Loans in excess of this amount are typically called "jumbo". While home prices increased from 1980 to 2006, so did conforming loan limits.  Since then, however, as home prices have dipped, the conforming loan limit has held. Now, in 2010, for the 5th consecutive year, the government set $417,000 as the nation's conforming mortgage loan limit. The 2010 conforming loan limits, as released by the government, are:.....

 Alaqua is a gated community in the heart of Heathrow-Florida This community is between Sanford-Florida and Lake Mary-Florida.  Having lived in Lake Mary and having worked in Heathrow it is more metro than country although there is selected areas where nature can still be appreciated as well as exercise trails.  For those who enjoy casual or fine dining there are both.  For healthy treats there are a few smoothie establishments.  For cafe lovers, there is more than one Starbucks, bagel restaurants, Dunkin' and more.  Ethnic restaurants offer variety. The president of Cypress Gardens lives in Heathrow as well as many sports stars.  It is an easy drive to Orlando (about 20-30 minutes in non-rush hour traffice on I-4)
