Nobody who's ever ventured north of NY City or Westchester County would ever imagine this! Only 70 miles away from the Big Apple is a beautiful and peaceful landscape. Manhattanites who come up here for a weekend drive usually fall in love with the Upstate NY countryside. Often I've heard it said...
Have you let yourself become a last minute Realtor? It's a fact - there are fewer and fewer buyers to work with. And, for every listing there are fewer and fewer showings. Sellers have pretty much let their guard down these days. Many sellers are requiring 24 notice. Do you tell buyers this? I do...
Some of you will call me OCD. Go ahead! But, I found myself one cheapskate builder when we built 9 years ago. I wasn't in the real estate business back then and maybe I didn't know any better. I didn't pre-determine if the completed construction project would include a garage paint job. I should ...
I was talking to a friend today about the differences between our parent's generation, the generation before them -  and how they were so much more resourceful than we are today. We have become a wasteful society and I am guilty as well as the rest of you! The conversation had started when I was ...
While driving home from my belated birthday celebration tonight, a few deer friends jumped out of the woods to surprise me! It was dark and we almost didn't see them. My husband hit the brakes just in time. We stopped and so did they - in the middle of the road they stood there staring back at us...
I got caught in a traffic snarl today and was running 5 minutes late to my inspection. Turns out the inspector arrived long before the scheduled time!  Enroute to the inspection, my phone rang. It was my buyer client telling me the inspector wanted the lock-box code so he could start. Perhaps, no...
Many of you know Gary Woltal. What is there not to love about this guy? If I am addicted to Active Rain - and I am, it's probably because on any given day I can always look forward to one or two of Gary's inspirational posts. I think I have become a groupie! And, I am only one of many. If you don...
Based on recent years, nature's fall colors will be vibrant here in the Mid-Hudson Valley around the middle of October. Visitors to the area need to plan ahead, as many area hotels are already full. I drove through the Adirondacks on my way to/from Montreal this past weekend. The colors were amaz...
Who's predicting when the real estate market will recover? THE analysts? Who are they? Are they the same people who DIDN'T predict that the real estate market would be the mess it is in today? Turn on the news, The Today Show, CNN - everyday, at every hour there's another analyst predicting when ...
Yesterday was a sad day in New York for all Yankee fans. We said goodbye to our beloved Yankee Stadium - "The House That Ruth Built". This is the place where the Yankees won 26 world championships, more than any other baseball team. This was a place where history was made many times over. Didn't ...
