|Hello, Hope your week is going great!
I keep hearing that you need to order your Christmas gifts soon or they might not arrive on time. If you want to be in a new home by Christmas, you need to be looking now. Closings generally take 30-45 days from contract to closing and I hate to be that guy, but there's only 73 days til Santa comes down the chimney.
Mortgage Rates: rates ticked up from 3.14% to 3.18 over the past week- This is the highest since June but still pretty dang low.
Foreclosures: 21 on the market - still not seeing an uptick here, will probably be early next year (I said that at the end of last year as well) See all of the foreclosures here.
Real Estate News: Builders seem to be getting their footing. We are seeing a more willingness to give financing incentives to buyers, however build times from ground up are still close to a year in many cases. If you would like to discuss new construction opportunities in NE Florida reach out to me, I would love to help!
Have a great rest of your week, please give me a call if there is ever anything I can do for you.
PS: Set your alarms, Jags play in London this Sunday at 9:30 EST - The Jaguars are the 1st team in the Super Bowl era not to have a field goal 5 weeks into the season! So Sunday I say we win 17-10.
