Sep 11, 2020 11:44:05 AM / by Larry Julius

There are approximately 635,000 households in the Boston area with existing mortgages, according to the US Census Bureau, American Housing Survey. The median amount owed on these homes is $232,000.

Yesterday, there was extraordinary news for many of these borrowers and for Boston area banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies

According to The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac), mortgage rates have hit an all-time low of 2.86%.

 
With interest rates at this new level, 20 million American homeowners can now refinance their existing mortgage, according to Black Knight, a data analytics company specializing in homeownership life cycles. 
 
By refinancing an existing mortgage, a Boston area homeowner could considerably reduce the length of their loan or lower the amount 
of their monthly payments.
 
Local banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies create a great deal of revenue from refinancing. 
 
Generally, a lender can expect to earn two to five percent of the loan principal amount in closing costs, according to BankRate.com. For a $200,000 mortgage refinance, for example, closing costs could generate between $4000 and $10,000.
 
For local financial companies to claim a significant share of the expanding refi market requires advertising. By any metric, advertising on Boston radio is the most effective way to reach homeowners.

Aug 27, 2020 7:09:00 AM / by Larry Julius

New data from the US Census Bureau has optimistic news for Boston companies that sell business-to-business.

There are approximately 122,000 businesses in the Boston area, according to the Census Bureau. Indeed, many of these businesses have suffered since the onset of the Coronavirus, especially in April.

Current census now indicates the fortunes of area companies are improving. This includes those companies with 500 or fewer employees. These small businesses account for 94% of all Boston area firms.

During the week of April 26, 45.6% of Boston area small businesses reported temporary closures.  By July 1, the number dropped to 20.8%

Also, during that same week, 77% of Boston small business owners were reporting decreases in revenue versus the prior week.  By the end of June, that number fell by half.

In both June and July of this year, national data shows all retail and food services spending significantly outperformed the prior year by between two and three percent.

As the business climate improves in the Boston area, the fortunes of B2B companies will accelerate as well. These include those businesses that sell office supplies, restaurant supplies, cleaning services, legal services, accounting services, transportation services, banking services, technology, and commercial real estate.
