Prices Up, Sales Volume Up in Marshfield One of the South Shore's best kept secrets is Marshfield.  Marshfield offers some of the best beaches this side of the Cape Bridges, and a diversity of housing stock for almost every price point.  A town often overshadowed up its peers, Marshfield offers some great values that truly warrant a look.

Mortgage Rate Forecast for August 6, 2010 - Improving, or...? Here are some of the events affecting mortgage rates today: What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 102.50 this morning - the same as yesterday's close. At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 102.62 - up 4/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes up, the yield comes down - and so do mortgage rates. I expect that mortgage rates will be up to 0.125 points better in price this morning as compared to yesterday.

Here's some great news for Marshfield residents, beach goers, real estate values, and potential business development!  You may eventually be able to exit a businesses on Route 139 and not be forced to take a left to avoid taking your life in your hands trying to cross oncoming traffic!  The Patriot Ledger reports that the state has funding to widen route 139 from 2 lanes to 4 lanes from School St. to Furnace St.  Construction is scheduled to start next summer, 2011.  Not soon enough! This will provide a great benefit to real estate and home values by reducing commuting times for those who have no other route in and out of town.  It will also make Enterprise Drive an attractive location for businesses because of the easy access (finally) to route 3. Are you wondering how the market in y...
