Fast Feng Shui Tip on How to Sleep Better Being loose is better, meaning to wear loose fitting pajamas. Studies show wearing loose fitting clothing relates to comfort within one's mind. Another side tip is to make sure electronics are either removed or concealed when resting at night. They relate to stimulating and potentially draining your energy even when sleeping.

What better sign of a revival of a down town business district than the reopening of the beautiful Suffolk Theater on Main Street in Riverhead! If you have not seen Main Street lately - you will be surprised and you should re-visit the East Main Street area and Riverfront! The new Hyatt and Atlantis Aquarium complex, a series of new and renovated restaurants including but not limited to the Athens Grill, the little gem of the Turkuaz Grill and the always popular Riverhead Project should have given an indication of the exciting news from our Western neighbor Riverhead! After many years of decay in the Down Town Area - the Suffolk theater will again be the crown jewel of the down town area! On march first, the Main Street area will be closed down for a festive ribbon cutting ceremony. A ...

Authored by: Laurie Mindnich March 20th, 2009 While we follow the interminable agenda of “Riverhead Revitalization”, rarely is there a more touching glimpse of the reality that waits…and waits…FOR SOMETHING! Nan Patience, from the local Riverhead Blog, Back at the Ranch , provides an interesting look into the current semi-abandoned state of Downtown Riverhead. Thank you Nan Patience for such a realistic perspective, from someone else who cares.

Authored by: Laurie Mindnich - for Options Realty March 15th, 2009  It was with relief that a new search feature on the MLSLI (multi list service of Long Island) was discovered- it’s an REO (bank owned) and short sale search. It’s now possible to sort properties with these buyer parameters, but is also helpful for sellers. Knowing what’s out there, and being able to access it, is a function needed in  a distressed market, and MLSLI has heeded the call. Unfortunately, this search feature is not yet available for consumers on the MLS feed, but we’re happy to perform the search, and send properties of interest until it becomes integrated into the consumer search feed. We’ll need parameters: towns, preferred home style, price range; once entered, we are able to implement the search, and del...

Authored by: Options Realty March 6th, 2009 When a foot of snow is the sight present at my front door, it occurs to me that owning a property absent certain time consuming tasks might be a great idea. While I have a few more years to go before the leap to a 55 and better, retirement, or active adult community occurs, I’m looking very forward to it. Absent the element of “retirement”, there are any number of choices for those seeking a low maintenance family condo on the North fork. Below, please find an overview of available condos. All info is obtained from MLSLI, subject to error. *CS indicates common charges. Common charges and taxes are estimates. In Aquebogue, NY: SILVER VILLAGE Price range available: $379.900. CS: $236 Taxes: $6774 In Baiting Hollow, NY: THE KNOLLS Price range ava...
