LIFE ON FORT MYERS BEACH
Color coding for buyers and sellers?
SEATTLE – Sept. 8, 2016 – According to a Zillow Digs analysis of 50,000 photos of recently sold homes, those with creamy yellow or wheat-colored kitchens, light green or khaki bedrooms, dove or light gray living rooms, and mauve or lavender dining rooms sold for $1,100 to $1,300 more than those decorated with less popular colors. This means real estate professionals might want to point sellers toward these colors. Based on studies of color, Credit.com says there are certain paint shades that sellers should avoid. Buyers tend not to like slate gray, terracotta, dark brown and off-white or eggshell, according to the website. RESOURCE
U.S. average 30-year mortgage rate declines to 3.44%
This week, 7.7% of the industry panelists believe mortgage rates will rise over the next week or so; 30.8% think rates will fall; and 61.5% predict rates will remain relatively unchanged. WASHINGTON (AP) – Sept. 8, 2016 – Long-term U.S. mortgage rates edged lower this week. As rates remain at historically low levels, homeowners taking advantage of the chance to refinance their mortgages have pushed up refinancing activity. Mortgage giant Freddie Mac said Thursday the average for the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage declined to 3.44 percent from 3.46 percent last week. The average rate is down from 3.90 percent a year ago, and is close to its all-time low of 3.31 percent in November 2012. The 15-year fixed mortgage rate eased to 2.76 percent from 2.77 percent.
