Average rate on 30-year mortgage at 4.13%

tallahassee mortgage

Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages dropped this week to their lowest levels in four months, a positive sign for the housing recovery.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the average rate on the 30-year loan fell to 4.13 percent. That’s down from 4.28 percent. The average on the 15-year fixed loan declined to 3.24 percent from 3.33 percent.

Both averages are the lowest since June 20.

Tallahassee Mortgage rates have been falling since September, when the Federal Reserve held off slowing its $85-billion-a-month in bond purchases. The bond buys are intended to keep longer-term interest rates low, including mortgage rates.

And a slowdown in hiring in September makes it more likely that the Fed will continue its stimulus into next year.

Tallahassee Mortgage rates tend to follow the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. The 10-year note traded at 2.50 percent Wednesday, down sharply from 2.61 percent last Thursday.

To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount.

The average fee for a 30-year mortgage ticked up to 0.8 point from 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan declined to 0.6 point from 0.7 point.

The average rate on a one-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to 2.60 percent from 2.63 percent. The fee rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point.

The average rate on a five-year adjustable mortgage dropped to 3.00 percent from 3.07 percent. The fee was unchanged at 0.4 point.

The Ultimate Bubble?


The world economy has almost completely moved out of the recession. If you are a researching investor, this is the right time to make your move on choosing the best companies to invest in, they will be the builders of the new economy.


Many tremendous success stories started with VC funding—including Google (GOOG), Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), and Amazon (AMZN)—and many started in down economic cycles.  Smart investment from VC partners during those early, critical stages made it all possible. The early valuations left a monumental upside, adding great value to the investors who could see windows of opportunity that others could not see.


Pro Players Realty USA® has a plan to add significant value to our investors, and give the opportunity for lifetime income with a good exit strategy.


“The one thing I know is that you win with good people.” – Don Shula


Pro Players Realty USA® Systems disrupt the old school real estate franchise way of doing business, by financially rewarding the Realtors, Brokers, and Owners in the company for bringing other people into the company. A 10% ongoing fee is paid from each sale or fee generated by their recruits, applying to Territory and State Sales, New Offices Opening, and Real Estate Transactions. This is significant motivation and inspiration for our members to recruit actively.


Great teamwork is the only way we create breakthroughs that define our careers.” – Pat Riley

This is an opportunity to get in at the top of an upcoming desirable Real Estate Organization in the USA.
A business’s worth is not just in the amount of equipment that it has, the amount of stock or how much money it made last year.  There are also assets that cannot be touched or held.  These assets are called intangibles.  Intangible assets are things like people, knowledge, experience, market position, and untapped client demand. These things can sometimes be just as valuable as the tangible property.  Customer awareness and a strong brand are important to buyers because it means that they will have to invest less money and time into building those things if they already exist on a strong level.


Pro Players Realty USA® will tap into the multitude of professional athletes who need to invest in viable businesses, and the thousands of Real Estate Professionals who want to own their own offices in a company that will pay them for helping build the business, and provides a valuable retirement program.


Many companies and individuals are willing to pay more for a company with a strong brand than for a company with a lot of tangible assets.  You can always buy more “things”, but it’s much hard to buy loyalty with customers.  Keep in mind that while you may get a better price with a strategic buyer, they may have goals different from your own, they may have a powerful emotional attachment to a particular geographical region and strong desire to obtain it.


Trust your gut


Investments often involve conceding control of your resources, so it pays to trust your instincts in determining whether these are individuals you are comfortable working with, and who share a mutual respect and vision for the past, present, and future direction of your capital.


Selling a business and building a successful exit strategy require preparation


You need to have a clear idea of what you want and where you want to go.  Remember, you are talking about planning the next adventure in your life. We want to help our people first and foremost, we realize when we do that, we will all be successful together as a team.  Buy low, let us develop a region with you, sell high later.


Global Expansion


Pro Players Realty USA® is created to be the Brand that will attract and retain quality sales professionals, and owners aggressively building market share; our business model is extremely attractive to agents and broker owners. Pro Players Realty USA® will expand to become a leading provider of Real Estate Brokerage and Property Management services on a national and global basis, while striving to be the best in the real estate industry!


At Pro Players Realty USA® we want to provide and add significant value to our investors. We want them to get return on their investment several times over and ongoing revenues.


We are assembling a community of investors across this nation who will make money and have a sense of teamwork and camaraderie.  People who are happy when others succeed, people who work together and mentor each other as a mastermind group, people who eat together, and take vacations together. This group will add to and multiply the success of our members, not subtract and divide. This group will be financially rewarded every time they bring in a new business owner and have ongoing revenue.
Our group of investors will form global relationships and plant new Pro Players operations across the globe increasing their chances for profitability and new relationships.

Immigration reform could boost real estate sales in Tallahassee FL

Nobody said life was a rose garden, and nobody said immigration reform by the U.S. Congress couldn’t give well-off foreign home buyers a hand up in the fierce competition to get an American visa, either.

That’s the aim of newly proposed laws now before Congress, laws designed in large part to make enforcement of immigration policy more effective.

At the same time, those laws might also make American real estate markets more lucrative, especially in Florida.

Sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans such as Florida’s Sen. Marco Rubio, the new legislation aims well away from the tired, the poor and the huddled masses. Instead, it would open the American door wide to foreign buyers of properties valued at $500,000 or more.

Such buyers would have to be 55, have health insurance, pass a criminal background check and maintain ownership of their properties while remaining in the U.S. for at least six months of the year to benefit from the more liberal new rules.

If buyers meet those qualifications, temporary visas would be automatically granted, along with the opportunity to apply for permanent visas.

Foreigners who buy or rent properties valued at $250,000 or more, meanwhile, could extend the 180-day visa which is now the maximum allowed by law, to 240 days.

Canadians, in particular — because of proximity, common language and a robust economy — could take advantage, many Realtors predict. That might help everybody.

“As long as their currency stays at an even rate or is positive against the dollar, I think this has a huge potential upside for Southwest Florida,” says Rowan Samuel, who with his wife, Karen Samuel, heads the Samuel Team at John R. Wood Realtors in Naples.

“That’s across all (economic) categories. Most Canadian buyers are looking here for a second home. A lot are condominium buyers in the $200,000 to $300,000 range.

“But there are also a lot of upper-level executives purchasing multi-milliondollar properties who would like to spend more time here.”

That in itself would prove a huge benefit to retail businesses in the region, Mr. Samuel adds.

“The idea is that an extension of a visa is also a central revenue generator. People who stay here longer will spend more in restaurants and stores and in other various ways that have a tremendous benefit.”

All that sounds pretty good for everybody, in a Sunshine State where almost one out of five home purchases last year went to foreign buyers, about 80 percent of them paying cash.

But that doesn’t mean the law and the opportunities couldn’t be even better, suggests Jim Green, a Lee County Realtor.

“Why do we want any of these investors to leave at all? With the age restriction we don’t have the issue of workforce competition. We have people with what I’ll call reasonable wealth who discover how delightful it is to live in America. To me, they’re storybook residents, people with money coming in and in effect creating jobs, not taking jobs.

“So I would (propose) even more leniency. Don’t put them in a situation where they’re forced to go back for some amount of time, because that’s money they’d spend here.”

That opinion is echoed by others from east and west and north to south.

In such markets as Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter, Naples and Marco Island, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers, or Punta Gorda and Venice Beach, Canadians and Western Europeans, with some buyers from the Americas, all have shown interest in the markets, Realtors say.

Even Chinese nationals, whose home purchases in the U.S. amounted to 1 percent of the total two years ago, doubled that last year, picking up 2 percent of homes sold to foreign buyers, notes Mr. Samuel. (Coincidentally, a Chinese company, Shuanghui International Holdings, reportedly moved last week to buy the world’s biggest pork producer, Smithfield Foods Inc., headquartered along the James River in Smithfield, Va., for $4.7 billion, suggesting how deeply China’s interest in U.S. products reaches.)

“In time, Chinese home buyers could become a huge factor here, too, although at the moment California and New York markets are (more attractive) to them,” Mr. Samuels predicts.

Wherever they come from, foreign buyers can help American sellers and the American economy.

“We definitely have seen an increase in foreign buyers, especially Canadians, and we personally know several who have said they would stay longer if their visas allowed them to,” notes Curtis Mellon, a Realtor in the Multiple Listings Detective Group of Re-Max’s Anchor Realty, in Punta Gorda.

In Charlotte County, he adds, highend foreign buyers who can no longer find a fabulous turn-key deal at the half-million to $1 million range, are now looking for land on which to build special homes —another way of powering up the American economy.

Dave Kaster, who has been selling real estate in the Naples-Marco Island market for almost three decades (the third biggest market in Florida behind Sarasota-Bradenton-Venice and Miami- Fort Lauderdale for Canadian buyers), agrees that such legislation could give the market a boost — maybe from the Europeans, whose business began to drop off a few years ago.

“I have seen a lot of Canadians buy,” he notes, “especially in the last 18 months. They want to be here for the weather. But the German and European market was bigger when I started my career, and that’s dropped off. This could encourage them.”

From the perspective of David Fite of Fite Shavell & Associates in Palm Beach County, the current demographics of foreign home buyers breaks down this way.

“Besides the tri-state market up north (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut), Canadians are the biggest buyers.

“We do a lot of advertising in their magazines to give them a feel for the properties we have from the $2 million up to the $15 to $20 million range. And we have agents who make trips to Canada.

“The Germans, the English, the French — most of the Western Europeans are represented here. The South Americans seem to stay more in Miami.

“We are seeing more Brazilians and Columbians coming up to Palm Beach. A lot of it is land banking. They’re buying beautiful properties in the U.S., and putting their money into the U.S. because they feel safer here.”

Because they feel safer, they’re pumping money into the U.S. economy — which is part of the goal, at least, of the newly proposed legislation.

But if Congress is really interested in bringing money into the economy from overseas, Mr. Kaster has another suggestion.

“It would be nice if they’d get the corporate tax structure under control,” he says. “It’s so confusing for American companies, and we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world — I think that’s a hindrance to bringing money back into the U.S.”

Partly as a result, American companies have shipped many jobs overseas, Mr. Kaster concludes.

“That’s why we need to do anything we can to bring foreign investment into Florida.”

To Buy or Not To Buy….

To Buy or Not To Buy….

That really is the main question that I get all the time. Especially in today’s challenging
Tallahassee housing market. Should I buy now, or wait and see if the interest rates will go down
a bit more?

The answer is simple. This truly is a case, to quote my father, of “Don’t Look A Gift Horse In The
Mouth!” The FED is not going any lower. Interest rates are at an all time l

ow. They really are!!!
They are not going lower!!!! Now keep in mind, interest rates very rarely stay stagnant. They
almost always move. Now, if I am correct, and they can’t go any lower (and I am ) then they
will only move UP!!The time to buy is now. Think about it, the rates are now lower than college loans! If you
are looking to purchase a home, do it now. If your move date is not for 12-18 months, my
professional advice is to buy the home now, rent it for a year, and take advantage of a savings
that will amount to tens if not, hundreds of thousands of dollars in the future. And, worry not
about whether or not you can rent the property. Did you know that Tallahassee is one of the
top rental communities in the country??? With the Universities, the State Legislature, and this
being the Capital City, our rental community is vibrant. A nice, clean home, priced correctly, will
rent in Tallahassee in a matter of weeks.To buy or not to buy……..I think the answer is clear. Call us at Pro Players Realty, USA, to
schedule your free buyer’s consultation. 850-942-SOLD.
