I wanted to provide you with a brief update on our eKEY for BlackBerry product, and tell you about a couple of promotions that are in the works.
First, our eKEY Fob, which is used as part of the eKEY for BlackBerry solution, continues to be in limited supply. Outstanding fob orders are being shipped in the order they are received. Please know that we are working diligently to fill all of your orders.
With interest rates approaching reaching historic lows, the application volume for mortgages jumped a seasonally adjusted 48 percent last week compared with the previous week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's weekly survey.
Application activity for the week ending December 19th was 124.6 percent over the same period a year ago, the Washington, D.C-based MBA said. The spike in applications coincided with another drop in mortgage rates, as the government's efforts to unfreeze the residential-mortgage market show further signs of having the desired effect.
The median selling price of existing single-family home sales in New York State remained stable for the third consecutive month despite a decrease in sales, according to preliminary single-family sales data accumulated by the New York State Association of REALTORS.
The National Association of Realtors® is urging the federal government to proceed rapidly to drive down mortgage interest rates and move ahead with housing stimulus action to drive up consumer confidence.
Statement from New York State Association of REALTORS President Linda J. Page
Dec. 17, 2008: Today, New Yorks 62,000 REALTORS are united in their disappointment that Gov. David Patersons budget proposal did not take the opportunity to reign in out-of-control school spending by including the school property tax cap plan as proposed by the New York State Commission on Property Tax Relief. NYSAR urges Governor Paterson to amend his budget proposal to seek enactment of badly needed structural relief from rising property taxes.
