Minute with Mindy: 
The Market is HOT, HOT, HOT!
You may have been questioning if it's the right time to enter the real estate market. Daily we are finding that the number of pending sales are exceeding active listings. This fact continues to drive market momentum. The market is craving more inventory and buyers look forward to new homes hitting the market weekly. If you've been considering making a lateral move, purchasing an investment property, downsizing or up-sizing, give me a call to discuss a personalized strategic plan. We would love the opportunity to help you achieve your real estate goals!

Tom's Tip:
Time to Double Down!
It's been brought to our attention that falsified unemployment claims are being made under innocent consumer's names and social security numbers. It's time to double down and check to see if this has happened to you.

FHFA Announces Refinance and Home Purchase Eligibility for Borrowers in Forbearance
Agency also extends the Enterprises' ability to buy loans in forbearance
​​​​​Washington, D.C. – Today, to support borrowers and mortgage servicers, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises)  have issued temporary guidance regarding the eligibility of borrowers who are in forbearance, or have recently ended their forbearance, looking to refinance or buy a new home.

"Intensity Remains Strong for New Listings"

"...we are seeing buyer demand coming forward. Yet given the historically low interest rates, the local market needs additional listings to meet pent-up demand from the backlog of buyers. Due to the COVID-19 situation, there were fewer new listings in April versus April 2019, which leads to fewer homes going under contract as well. However, the sales activity intensity of homes selling within the first 30 days is nearly aligned with last year for homes priced up to $750,000. In this range, sales activity intensity is at frenzy (versus extreme frenzy last year) and you still need to be Buyer Ready to get a home in today’s market!"
