Lancaster County PA Mortgage Rate Analysis - 05/20/09 06:48 PM
Interest rates in Lancaster County PA continue to be quite low by historical standards. According to the Lancaster County Association of Realtors, a poll of local lenders as of April 27, the latest figures available, averaged 5.04% for fixed 30-year mortgages, and 4.71% for 15-year loans. Of course, these low rates reflect a soft market - but if you are in the market for a home anyway, this is an unusually good time to purchase. And for first time buyers, the $8,000 First Time Buyer Tax Credit is still in effect. (Please feel free to contact me for details on this (5 comments)

For Lancaster County Sellers With a Private Buyer - I Have an Idea - 05/07/09 08:02 PM
I have an idea for you to consider, which may reduce your risk in keepng your property off the market while you pursue a private sale to someone you know. In addition, if your private sale is successful, my idea won't cost you a cent. If your private buyer writes a good offer, applies without delay for a mortgage, and is approved for their mortgage, then you will have achieved your goals.
