Don’t miss the 4th of July Mattapoisett Road Race!
The  Mattapoisett Road Race is a 5 mile race held every 4th of July which
takes the runners through the beautiful Mattapoisett Village, along the historic
waterfront, around Ned’s Point Lighthouse and finally back to Shipyard Park
at the Town Warf. This small race has become an Independence Day tradition
for the town of Mattapoisett.
The Road Race was started by Bob Gardner and his wide Doris in 1971, it was
their dream to offer local runners a race in the O.R.R. area. The first year’s race
only had 15 runners, every year since the race has grown bigger and bigger and
now clocks in at over 800 runners with people participating from all over the world.
For directions, put 12 Water St. Mattapoisett into your GPS. Follow Road Race
signs which will lead you to registration and parking.If you have not yet
registered, post registration will be available on Wednesday July 3rd from
5pm-8pm for $20, and July 4th from 7:30 am-8:30 am for $25.
Hope to see you there, and good luck to all of the runners participating this year!

Mortgage Rate Increase- Buy Now!

untitled

To quote Kate Lanagan MacGregor in a recent Standard

Times Article, “Buy Now!”

Since May mortgage rates have slowly been creeping up, June 21st we saw rates increase to
4.36%, this was a staggering increase of 0.42% since June 14 and a full 1% higher than the record
low of 3.36% we saw in December.
According to Andrea V. Brambila, an Associate Editor for Inman News, The Fed purchases $40 billion
in mortgage backed securities and $45 billion in Treasuries every month in an effort to boost borrowing
by keeping interest rates low. These rates are independent of the stock market, rates will rise and fall
regardless of the stock market.
Doug Duncan, chief economist for Fannie Mae stated that, “If they go much higher this rapidly I think
there will be some reaction from the Fed, but they’re going to let it play out for a while because they
clearly view the economy as strengthening. If the economy is strengthening, that tends not to have as
much impact on the housing market. We’re still in an adjustment-of-expectation phase here.” Duncan
does not believe the Fed would be troubled by seeing a 6.5% mortgage rate, however if it rose to that
rapidly it would concern them.
At this point we do not anticipate this will affect the rent vs own debate, rates are still low enough to
make purchasing a home more cost-effective than renting. It is suggested that rates would have to
double for the market to turn over to renting. However, we are seeing some people being pushed out
of the market, some borrowers were already marginal in their ability to qualify and higher rates are
affecting their purchasing power.
So what should we take from this rate increase?
Don’t panic! Rates are not anticipated to continue to increase at this pace, they will steady out and
remain calm for the next few months. A 1% increase will not drastically affect your monthly
payment. If you were waiting to see what would happen with mortgage rates before you jumped into
the market, now would be a good time to start looking. Unfortunately, is likely that the days of
3.36% rates are behind us.

and Jake Winslow at Winslow Law and Associates to create a “Bold Bundle” for buyers. (Saving
$500 or more).
