The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Quincy MA for October 22, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Quincy, Massachusetts. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened at 100.59 this morning - down 13/32 from yesterday's close. The chart below shows today's price trend of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% coupon: The FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon is currently trading at 100.63 - up 3/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage interest rates. I expect that mortgage interest rates will be 0.125% - 0.25% worse in price this morning as compared to yesterday. The chart below shows the price trend of the F...

The interest rates are at an all time low.If you bought a condo @ 5% interest w/ no money down and condo fee of $200/month you would have a payment of less than $1500/month.You can then write off the mortgage interest in your tax return and not to mention the 8K tax credit for a 1st time buyer available this year.Here is a sample payment Summary Principal & Interest: $1,073.11 Condo/HOA Fees: $200.00 Taxes: $207.30 Total Monthly Payment: $1,480.41Click the following to see all of the condos on the market in Quincy, Mass 30 Listings  Condominium Listings   MLS # Status  Address Town Description DOM List Price   70817506 ACT 195 Independence Avenue U:113 Quincy, MA  2 room, 0 bed, 1 bath Garden 22...

It was good news that we received this past week about our local real estate market.  Although both the nation and statewide trends still show negative numbers, we're in one of those areas that is defying the trend.  Our local area of Quincy, Milton, Hingham had sales increases in January, along with parts of Suffolk and Plymouth Counties.  Not only have the agents in our office, Century21 Annex Realty, been reporting more activity, but so has our affiliated real estate school.  Enrollment in Annex Real Estate School has also picked up since the beginning of the year.  This has been especially true of the pre-licensing class that prepares students for the Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson exam.
