Like every agent, I've had my share of clients this year who owe more than what their homes are worth. In these situations, it seems the first assumption by real estate agents is that a short sale might be the answer. But, not everybody qualifies for a short sale. Surprisingly, some people DO hav...

Hey! Mr. Amateur Home Inspector - Go ahead and Google me! Read my bio! I am not the rookie!  But, you might be! No ladder, no radon testing equipment or moisture detection instruments? Do you want to do business with me? Then, come prepared.

Literally, this is food for thought! A buyer called out something I thought was a little quirky when I was recently showing a house. She mentioned the location of the dishwasher. Something I think I've given very little thought to in my lifetime as an adult. But, I do live close to the Culinary I...

But, has anybody told you that if you snooze you lose?Now, I can't predict the future, but thanks to m...

A caregiver wears many hats - nurse, activities director, cook, housekeeper, chauffer, pharmacist - just to name a few. For caregivers in the mid-Hudson Valley, a FREE...
In a few days, at a more appropriate time - I will ask for family permission to pay official tribute to a wonderful man. I have been absent from Active Rain for a few days because I was feeling too blue. Yesterday I attended a funeral of a friend and a well respected real estate attorney. At 73 y...
"I love to tease my New York agent friends!  If you don't negotiate the deal, what do you do to earn that big old check"? This was a comment by Patricia Kennedy on one of my previous posts. Now, Pat works the Washington DC market, where a lawyer is not needed for a real estate transaction. She al...
