A Note to My Clients during this Incredible Time

To think I thought February dragged on forever this year…

March 2020 clearly has been the longest month on record during my time on this beautiful earth.  What began with a nice weekend in New York City where we enjoyed a gorgeous hotel with amazing views, a long awaited visit with my grad school best friend, a fun ferry ride on the river, the powerful 911 Museum and all it represented, and our friend’s XFL game at MetLife Stadium then all lead perfectly into a relaxing getaway with my daughter to visit my mom in Florida for her freshman year Spring Break.  We spent a week in the sun, hanging by the pool, eating out, and hearing just bits and pieces about the Corona Virus arriving to the United States.  By the end of the week, things clearly were quickly evolving as we bought the last two canisters of Lysol wipes at the local CVS for our flight home and cherished the last bits of a travel sized hand sanitizer that we found in my carry on.

Upon arrival back to Massachusetts, we packed our daughter up and dropped her back to college.  Those next few days then felt like weeks as news and fresh data started to be shared.  Every hour it seemed there was a new development and just five days after we had dropped her off, we were back up to Weston with two cars to pack up her dorm room for good.

I am sure you all have very similar and surreal stories of your own.  With companies transitioning work to home offices, schools closing and sending kids home, parents figuring out home schooling, and many many of you facing layoffs and business closings.  Working in real estate and new construction, I have faced these challenges with my clients and I face a lot of uncertainty myself.

So what I am thinking now?

First and foremost, your top priority must be taking care of yourself and your loved ones. I am still working, but know that real estate will be there for you on the other side of the Covid-19 crisis as well.

There are absolutely some buyers and sellers who need to buy and sell now and we are working with them to make that happen. If you feel more comfortable waiting, take assurance in the fact that we were in the middle of a strong economy and a strong housing market when the Covid-19 hit. I am confident there are going to be buyers and sellers anxiously awaiting you once this health crisis has resolved.

Please know I am available and I am happy to be a resource to you at anytime and for anything.  I have a solid network of other professionals who are eager to be helpful to you as well.  Mortgage officers, attorneys, contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc.  I am just a phone call or e-mail away (508-930-5259, jen.mcmorran@gmail.com)

We’ll get through this … we have before!

All of the best and stay well,

Jen

Mortgage Interest Rates at Five Decade Low!

What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.      –Ralph Marston

With mortgage interest rates hovering at near historic lows, now is a great time to look back at where rates have been to truly appreciate where rates are now.

Mortgage rates are now averaging around 3.5%  – they are hovering near a five decade low.  That is right – a five decade low.   And buyers are ready to take advantage of that with mortgage applications up 15% over a year ago.   This is shaping up to be an early and strong spring real estate market in Massachusetts and Rhode Island with mild weather continuing and eager buyers ready to find their next home sooner than later. Interest rates over time

Give a call 508-930-5259 or send an e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com  if you’d like to discuss how now might be the time for you to start your home search.  My team is ready to support and guide you every step of the way from getting pre-approved for your mortgage, finding a home, negotiating an offer, securing a qualified home inspector, and hiring an attorney to review your contracts and coordinate your closings.

Without a doubt, capitalizing on current mortgage interest rates to purchase a home today will absolutely pay off for you as a homeowner tomorrow.  The impact your interest rate has on your monthly mortgage payment can be significant.  Let’s see how we can make current real estate and mortgage market conditions work for you!

It is my true pleasure to  work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  Please let me know what questions you may have and how I can be of the best assistance to you.

Reflecting on 2019

2019-2020 Jenn Wood (1)

It’s here… can you believe it is 2020?  Seriously, 1990 is now just as far in the past as 2050 is in the future.  Crazy.   And I can’t believe I have been away from BeHomeBeWell for so long.  I am thrilled to be able to dedicate some time to share here once again.

Reflecting on 2019 I am proud to say that as a Mom I made it through the college application process, FAFSA application process,  final dance recitals, senior prom, high school graduation, and then dropping my daughter off for her freshman year of college – all during one of the busiest and most successful years in real estate I have had.

A huge thank you to all of my amazing buyers and sellers.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

As my clients, you all had very different stories.  Different challenges.  Different motivations.   But, together we go it done, no matter the obstacle.  It was your willingness to collaborate and work towards a solution that lead to so many homes being sold, so many homes being bought, and so many homes being built.  What an honor to have had the opportunity to work with each one of you!

And congratulations on so many of your blessings over the past year!  Engagements, weddings,  babies, new homes, retirements, cancer remission, new jobs, new puppies, exciting home renovations, and even a much needed transplant for a very deserving gentleman.   Just amazing and know I have celebrated all of that with you.

Along with the celebrations there have also been struggles and sadness.  Many lost loved ones, dealt with incredible mental health and medical diagnoses,  had jobs eliminated,  suffered injuries, and faced sudden and unexpected financial difficulties.   Life has a way of challenging us that is for sure.    There were many moments I would cry quietly in my car thinking of all you were enduring … no doubt about it, life is hard.

Sharing your personal journeys and your real estate journeys has allowed me to continue to grow,  learn, and appreciate all of my amazing blessings. Thank you again for allowing me to earn your trust and be a part of making your last real estate move whether buying or selling.   I also wanted to let you know, that once again, as each of your deals closed this year, you made a difference in the lives of children living with serious illnesses and their families.  Jen, Avery, and Zoe Hole In the WallMy family tucked away $100 per closing to donate to an organization very near and dear to our hearts – The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.  They made all of the difference for us when our daughter  Zoe was diagnosed with brain cancer and they still continue to make a difference today for Avery, Pat, and me as we learn to live as a family of three now.  This year we donated $4000.  We could not be happier about making such a big contribution to such a worthy cause.

Heading into 2020, I wish you much happiness and health in the year to come…

If there is ever anything I can do for you or anyone you may know, please do not hesitate to reach out.

All of the best,
Jen
