At Home in Scarborough, MaineI love the Fall. Don't get me wrong, as a born and bred New Englander, I love all the Seasons. As our gorgeous Summer wanes on the gorgeous coast of Maine, Fall is a brightly colorful last hurrah from Mother Nature to remind us how lucky we are! As I was driving to work today in Scarborough, Maine, I seemed extra aware of how beautiful my community really is. Scarborough is  a coastal community in Southern Maine. Just South of Portland, Scarborough boasts some of the most beautiful beaches, Salt Marshes, stately working farms and wooded areas. Couple that with fabulous amenities, schools and ease of commuting: you'll see why Scarborough has grown from one of our best kept secrets to a thriving community. At New England Realty Group, we specialize in our grea...

Have you been to Scarborough recently? Though it's not as big as Portland, or as small as other towns in Southern Maine, Scarborough has a lot going for it right now. As we get into the second quarter of 2014, it's becoming clear that real estate here in Maine is only going to continue going up! Case in point: the total transaction volume in Scarborough was up 29% in 2013, and median prices for real estate was up 5%. Sunny summer days are almost upon us, and a great place to enjoy those sunny days is in Scarborough. If you want to know more about homes and condos that are listed right now, visit Herrigel Kennedy's site or drop us a line at herrigelkennedy@gmail.com. We're happy to help you find what you're looking for!

 The real estate markets of Scarborough Maine had a relatively poor showing this past May as only 14 homes and condos sold compared with 30 a year prior in May 2010. Median prices were also down about 7%, but given the smaller amount of homes that sold I would not put a ton of credibility in this median sold price drop. Overall the greater Portland region has stabilized from a pricing perspective and volume is down largely as the result of the housing credit boom of last year.

 The real estate markets in Scarborough Maine had a strong showing for the first 3 months of the year with 36 residential transactions transpiring at a median sales price of 293K compared with 31 properties selling at a median price of 265K in 2010. Despite the rough winter weather and a slower greater Portland real estate market as a whole..it seems Scarborough was able to keep its volume up..perhaps attributed to its strong community and great quality of life! Going forward watch for continued strong market results. For the complete Maine first quarter real estate report please click here. For more info on Scarborough real estate please reach out directly.

 The month of February saw 14 residential properties sell at a median price point of 297K. This represents a 40% volume increase from 10 that sold in Februarr 2010 and an 18% pricing increase from a median sales price of 251K in 2010 for the same time period. Like the rest of the region Scarborough residential real estate volume has been low given the harsher winter and more cautious buyers in the marketplace, but pricing continues to stabilize!

 The Scarborough ME residential real estate markets saw 10 transactions sell in February 2010 up 67% from 6 homes selling in February 2009 and down 17% from January. The median sold price in February for these 10 homes was 251K, down 13% from 2009 and also down 13% from January. Going forward look for a very healthy market and strong results in March/April as the housing tax credit and low interest rates propel the market forward.

The Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advisory for Scarborough ME for October 29, 2009 Here are some of the events affecting mortgage interest rates today in Scarborough, ME. What the Mortgage Backed Securities Market is Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon opened at 101.09 this morning - down 1/32 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 100.97 - down 5/32 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. Recent Activity in Mortgage Backed Securities:...

June 2008 and buyers are still holding out........prices have come down and interest rates are still doing well...but buyers know that it is a buyers market and are expecting to benefit from it....Where many properties were selling 3 years ago 15% above assessed value...today properties are selling either at or just under the assessed value....Many buyers are hoping to come into the Maine market and get a lot for their money....but the truth is that many sellers have already marked prices as low as they possibly can....Many sellers today are having to go to closing with some cash in order to clear title...Buyers may want to understand the market that they are shopping in first of all.....for example Biddeford is a little different from Ogunquit....and the prices will dictate that....It ...

It is now 2008 and buyers are realizing that it is now or never....prices have come down and interest rates are still doing well...Many buyers are hoping to come into the Maine market and get a lot for their money....but the truth is that many sellers have already marked prices as low as they possibly can....Sellers today are having to go to closing with some cash in order to clear title...Buyers may want to understand the market that they are shopping in first of all.....for example Biddeford is a little different from Ogunquit....and the prices will dictate that....It is nice to see buyers doing their homework over the internet before seeking to see a property, but keep in mind that many properties out there are in an up side down loan and sellers can decrease their prices just so far...
