Watching some so-called experts parade in front of the news cameras this morning, it was funny to hear some of the comments.   One "expert" said the Fed's recent cut (exactly one week ago) has had no effect on housing.   This shows how little understanding some "experts" have about the way short-term rate changes have little or no impact on home loans.   Do they really think that fence-sitting home buyers see the Fed cut, get in their car, buy a home, get a mortgage, and close within a week? Next, an economist from Standard & Poors said, "Most mortgages are priced off the 10-year Note".   So what? I have no clue as to what that means to me or my buyer clients.  And oh by the way, I have a Bachelors Degree in Economics. Do YOU know what "Most mortgages are priced off the 10-year Note" me...

All of my lender contacts are abuzz about what may happen this week if the loans that conform to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac funding guidelines is raised over $600,000. Rumors are zooming around like confetti in a tornado. Some say, "Conforming money will go to $625,000." Others say, "I hear $700,000 is the number!" "Just wait and see... conforming will go up to $730,000!!!", say some. If the conforming money increase is not a limited-time increase, and the decision makers choose to make the change permanent, we could see a MODEST increase in the pace of home sales. However, if Congress is smart, and positions the loan limit increase as a TEMPORARY increase, with a sunset clause that rolls back the ceiling to a lower loan value at some future date, we could see a SIGNIFICANT increase in ...

Here is a portion of today's mortgage market e-mail from my buddy, "Big Dave" of Nations Home Funding."The "Maestro", former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan, is back on the soapbox - but this time with a more positive tone.  While he still thinks the chance of a recession (2 consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth) is 50/50, he said that if the US economy did enter one, it would be short and shallow.  "Moreover, he thinks 2008 could be the bottom in housing.  "We are glad to see he is thinking the same way we have been.  "And consider this - if the housing market had a large affordability gap...perhaps as much as 30%...the excess will have been reduced quite a bit by the end of this year.  "Prices declined by 5%-10% in 2007.  "Add another 5% drop this year and half the excess in affordabil...

Have you noticed that new homes are rising out of the ground all over Prince William and Woodbridge in the middle of a "real estate slump"? How come builders are still selling when existing home sales SEEM to be stalled? Price. Builders price homes with their HEADS; too often, home owners price their homes with their HEARTS. Builders set their prices based on market facts.  Some home owners set their price based on facts, but the vast majority of owners base their asking price on EMOTION. Builders are selling a commodity. Home owners are selling a comodity too, but most don't know that.  Most owners view their real estate as a prized possession...   I popped in to see Beth at Victory Ridge today to find out how many homes she has been selling. Beth is the new homes Sales Manager for NVH...

  It isn’t often that you see an event being planned in the community and it makes you think of a Dr Seuss book. However the latest event being planned by the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association is a “fishing trip.” Trip might actually be a bit of a misnomer. Actually the fish are going to be in the Ridgewood swimming pool. Yes you read that correctly. The association is going to fill the pool with 700 rainbow trout and for $7.00 per person you can drop a line and catch your limit (of two). Now as someone who has a tendency to sea sickness the idea of fishing in a swimming pool has some appeal. However, as someone who really likes to swim I’m hoping that the pool gets a good scrubbing after the fishing party is over.The fishing event doesn’t happen until March which is a good th...

I moved to Prince William County in 1983 when most of the county was a vast wilderness, criss-crossed with windy two lane roads that ended in the middle of nowhere. Fast forward to 2008.  Prince William County is now a lush, inviting place to live, work, and play. I say lush, because the County still offers plenty of green space, while mixing in world-class communities. One of my favorite neighborhoods is River Falls.        River Falls is a young neighborhood surrounding the lush rolling fairways of Old Hickory Golf Club. I have played golf at Old Hickory, and I can say without a doubt that it's one of my top ten favorite golf courses on planet Earth.       My golf instructor, Vincent, has kept my swing tuned just right at the exceptional golf academy at River Falls, Powerline Golf Aca...

The inventory of Foreclosure or Bank Owned Properties has increased over the past year and a half.  Purchasing one of these homes may provide buyers with an opportunity to get into a home under market value.  Although, they may seem like a "good deal"  often times these homes may need repair work, cleaning, or appliances to be replaced...When you are looking for a foreclosure home, you will need to have an agent who can help you sift through all the, many factors that are involved in purchasing a foreclosure.....Give me a call, my name is Konnie Mckee, I am a real estate agent in Northern Virginia... my cell phone number is 703 407 7088 or visit me on the web http://www.konniemac.com/
