Captree State Park: Ride Captree Pride Fishing Boat with Captain Kenny Looking for something fun to check out on long island? How about fishing? Since your exploring an island, take advantage of the natural beauty and food it has to offer in the surrounding bays and oceans.  The other day I treated myself to a spontaneous fishing adventure.  I rolled into the  captree State parking lot around 12:30 pm, walked the fishing docks, spoke with a couple of the captains and found my fishing boat.  Meet Captain Kenny.  He is very friendly, humble and generous with his time and knowledge of the bays and knows of the best spots to fish around Long Island. 5 hours of fishing from 1pm-5pm.  I set the goal to capture at least 3, I didn't do to bad, came home with 2. That's not to bad not having gone...

  The Mortgage Outlet has discovered that there a lot of misinformation and mortgage myths about Reverse Mortgages in BABYLON New York.  A reverse mortgage is a home equity loan which allows homeowners 62 years or older to convert some of their home-equity into tax-free income without having to make any repayments on any part of the loan as long as they will continue to live in the home.  The tax-free proceeds from a reverse mortgage can be used for any purposes.  Reverse Mortgages were created to enhance the lifestyle of the borrower for the rest of their life.     Myth # 1:  The Bank will own my home. Fact:  Your title will not change until you sell your home and you will maintain ownership of your property. The lender will place a lien against your property just like a regular mortga...

Who Should Consider a Reverse Mortgage in Babylon New York? Reverse mortgages in Babylon New York are a convenient way for senior citizens to get the money they need. They allow seniors to use the equity they have in their homes to borrow money. But unlike a traditional mortgage or home equity loan, they are not required to make monthly payments until the loan is paid in full. The loan is not due until the homeowner moves, sells the house, or dies.   A reverse mortgage usually leaves the recipient’s estate owing money when he passes away. In most cases, the house must be sold to repay the loan. The remainder of the money goes to the deceased’s estate. Because of this, a reverse mortgage may not be a good idea if you are intent on leaving your home to your children or other heirs.   So w...
