After this morning's slightly stronger inflation data, bond markets moved lower in price and higher in yield--a classic reaction to that type of data. The most frequently-quoted conventional 30yr fixed…
  • MBS RECAP: Bonds Escape With Minimal Damage after Volatile Morning

    Matthew Graham
    22 May 2015 | 12:19 pm
    Posted To: MBS CommentarySurprisingly, the story of the day turned out to be Core CPI coming in at +0.2558 vs a forecast of +0.2. This was apparently enough to send bond markets reeling (relatively). The fact that the shorter maturities got hit the hardest, suggests that it was a pure rate-hike-timing trade. Reason being: the Fed Funds rate is literally an overnight rate target, and overnight rates are as short as they come. So a change in the overnight rate outlook radiates out from there in terms of duration. As such, it's no surprise to see 2-5yr Treasuries end the day up more than…
  • Fannie Mae: Housing Faring Better than Economy

    Jann Swanson
    22 May 2015 | 10:42 am
    Posted To: MND NewsWireFannie Mae's economists used their May economic and strategic summary to downgrade expectations for 2015 growth but at the same time painted a slightly brighter picture for housing. Based on the poor growth of GDP in the first quarter, only 0.2 percent, they downgraded expectations for the year by 0.5 percentage point to 2.3 percent growth. The portion of the report dealing with housing was obviously written both before Tuesday's encouraging news about residential construction or Thursday's disappointing existing home sales report. That said, Fannie Mae's economic team…

    Posted To: MND NewsWireThe National Association of Realtors® is distributing a study it commissioned from the Swanepoel T3 Group which we expect will generate a lot of discussion among its members. Despite its rather hokey name, Definitive Analysis of Negative Game Changers Emerging in Real Estate or D.A.N.G.E.R Report, the lengthy document is a pretty eyes-open examination of the industry's near-term challenges . Author Stefan Swanepoel compiled the report from a review of over 200 reports, surveys, focus group reports, journals and other academic sources coupled with a survey of nearly…
  • MBS MID-DAY: Strong Start Reverses after CPI; Yellen up Next

    Matthew Graham
    22 May 2015 | 9:03 am
    Posted To: MBS CommentaryTrading has been surprisingly reactive to data this morning with stronger CPI resulting in an obvious selling spree. Up until that point, bond markets were stone silent right through the overnight session. That was especially true during Asian hours. From there, Europe didn't add any volatility, but a gentle bond market rally made for an even gentler version in Treasuries. By the start of the domestic session, 10yr yields were down to 2.17 after closing at 2.195 yesterday. Fannie 3.0s were back up to 101-04 and 3.5s up to 104-10. Despite only a modest beat in CPI…

The duplex has 5 bedrooms, 5-plus baths and 40 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows with a terrace of glass overlooking Central Park. White marble floors start in the foyer and continue through a formal dining room into a double-height living area that features a brass-and-floating-glass staircase.

    22 May 2015 | 12:17 pm
    The Connecticut seaside home where Katharine Hepburn spent family vacations and returned often throughout her life, and where she spent her final days, is on the market for $14.8 million. The acting legend’s parents bought the property in the Fenwick section of Old Saybrook, CT, around 1913, when Hepburn was a child. The home was washed away by a hurricane in 1938, several years after she’d won her first Academy Award. The actress dug her mother’s silver service out of the sand and rebuilt the home, creating the brick structure that still stands along the banks of Long…

But how do these laws impact the average urban, suburban or rural homeowner, and what sort of liability could someone face if they accidentally or purposefully violated local land use laws?

    Rachel and John Zohn are hopping from their home on an Air Force Base in Mississippi this summer to one in Montgomery, AL. Although Montgomery has a neighborhood they like, it would cost more to live there than on base — even after they factor in their “Basic Allowance for Housing.” Landlords are often other military families who know precisely how much the local BAH is for various ranks and will charge that amount for rent, Rachel said. Buying a home in Montgomery might make more financial sense on a monthly basis, she said, but not when you figure that, like most military…

She noted there really isn’t that much out there about this now-common aspect of buying or selling a home (common, that is, for MLS-listed homes, you can avoid the frenzy by looking for homes on MLS alternatives). She and I then engaged in some typically spirited discourse, which in turn helped me to further frame and analyze the issues raised. Multiple Offer Situation and Bidding War defined First, some definitions.  A “multiple offer situation” is where a seller receives two or more written offers on the property. A “bidding…

I just did a spot check of new listings in Kirkland 98033 and a full 2/3rds have this instruction, including both single family homes and condos. If you look only at the single family homes, the percentage is even higher.

    There is a weight loss diet that uses the biological cycles to help us lose weight. It is called the Circadian Diet, a diet aimed to accelerate the metabolism, suppress the appetite and control the hard-to-fight- addiction to sugar or sweets.

  • Quick Market Update from the May 2015 Note

    Jim Duncan
    19 May 2015 | 4:15 am
    A quick snip from this month’s note: The Market – Balanced? Overheated? – It depends on your market segment A friend from another market texted me the other day: How do you feel about the future housing market?  Does it look good or up in the air?  Just a short quick thought would be great. My response to him – Our market is mostly trending up. Certain segments are balanced while others, primarily the urban properties, are skyrocketing. Crazy low interest rates remain a positive for sellers, but create some inherent risk for buyers from a resale perspective. I…
  • Visit a Wegmans before Buying a House in Charlottesville

    Jim Duncan
    17 May 2015 | 7:59 pm
    Just a suggestion – if you’re considering buying a house in the Charlottesville area in the next 18 months, visit a Wegmans first. Apparently Wegmans is the best thing since sliced bread, and I’ve found that one of the primary triangles in my clients’ lives (work, home, grocery …) tends to be Harris Teeter, Krogers, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s. But it has also raised questions, particularly from those unfamiliar with the brand and its allure. What is the deal with Wegmans? Why do people who know it seem to love it so? And is it really this grocery oasis in what increasingly…

When leaving downtown Crozet for the National Ground Intelligence Center up 29 North: But at rush hour, add about 5 minutes.

  • 7 Reverse Mortgage Financial Assessment Tips for Originators

    Elizabeth Ecker
    25 May 2015 | 9:48 am
    The reverse mortgage financial assessment, by now, is old news. With its implementation date nearly a month in the past, originators have had even more months to train and prepare for the new rule.  As was expected, the assessment is adding time into the reverse mortgage origination process. But those in the field say that in working with borrowers, they are more often than not, able to present the borrower’s story through documentation and by asking the right questions to net the right proof. And in most cases, borrowers still qualify.  We spoke with several reverse mortgage originators…

  • How To Shop For A Mortgage

    Steve Heideman
    11 May 2015 | 8:42 am
    The first thing you should always do when you start looking for a mortgage, is to shop for it. Checkout other lenders and see what the programs are.  Don’t ever assume the first offer your getting is likely to be your best offer.  It is important to get to the bottom line.  To do that, you need to evaluate three things. What’s the rate you’re getting and that they’re quoting you? What are the closing costs? What’s the loan amount? Wholesale lenders have a great advantage over retail banks, because doing mortgage lending is their entire focus.  They’re…

If you’re only going to in your new home for two years or less, in most cases, it’s probably more beneficial to rent than to buy. 2 Do you even have the disposal income to be thinking about buying? There are costs to taking a home mortgage that aren’t associated with renting. You need to decide. Do you have the disposal income to afford to buy? 3  What type of lifestyle, and comfort are you…

    If you are in the market to buy a new home, now is the best time to buy. All indications point to the first half of 2015 being the best time to buy a new home or refinance. With rates now close to the lowest levels they were in 2013, makes it better in terms of getting a new mortgage. There are three main reasons to buy a home in the first half of 2015.

  • Changes to Fannie Freddie that may help Home buying easier for many people in 2015

    Mike Goblet
    9 Jan 2015 | 12:08 pm
    Some changes have come into effect for 2015 that might make home buying easier in the Phoenix area. Earlier this year Fannie and Freddy changed their guidelines that almost all lenders use. Which is, they allow gift money from a family member to be used up to 100 percent of the down payment. So, for many firsttime homebuyers they might have a family member that’s willing to help. In the past, first-time home-buyers had to have a certain percent of their own cash, even with the gift money, but now it can be up to 100 percent of the down payment. On December 15th, Fannie and Freddy also…

  • Diplomacy with a Noisy Neighbor

    Eli Kooris
    22 May 2015 | 11:43 am
    Having neighbors is something that goes with the territory when you live in an apartment and with neighbors can come a whole host of compromises. The most important compromise, however, has to do with making too much noise, as there is just a wall separating one apartment from the next in most cases and that means noise can affect you and your living situation. Loud parties or music can keep you up late at night and cause you to be tired for work the following day; it can also generally disturb your peace and quiet. Adding to the difficulty of dealing with this situation is the fact that you…
  • Protecting Your Apartment on Moving Day

    If you’re moving out of your apartment, there are a number of reasons to fear moving day as its chaotic randomness and stressful unpredictability can jeopardize the success of the entire relocation operation. And, amidst the whirlwind of worrisome thoughts lodged in your mind, one essential question that you must be asking yourself is how to prevent property damage when moving and keep your apartment intact throughout this transitional period. Property damage is perfectly avoidable with careful planning and smart organization. And regardless of whether you are a homeowner or a renter, you…
  • 5 Ways to Maximize Bathroom Space

    Eli Kooris
    19 May 2015 | 2:23 pm
    Bathrooms are traditionally small in most apartments. Sure, there will always be the odd master bath in certain unique apartments, like those that have been converted from old homes or business into apartment space. But for the most part, the bathroom is one of the smaller rooms because very little is really needed in the bathroom beyond the sink, toilet and shower, if it is a full bath. All of these things can be squeezed into a very small space, as any major city or beachside apartment will reveal to you. So if you happen to have an exceptionally small bathroom, or just need to utilize more…

    When I watch those reality home makeover shows, one common theme is transforming tired old bathrooms into grand spa-like retreats. Looks idyllic, but really, who has that much space for a bathroom? Most of us make do with the small bathrooms our home came with, meaning towels, cleaning supplies, and extra shampoo are crammed together on a cluttered shelf. So I’ve researched and tried out some simple bathroom hacks to make the most of you space and turn any bathroom into… well… a less cluttered bathroom! Get it off the counter Try some wall shelving. Simple shelves are cheap and easy to…
  • Why a Message Board Is Great with Roommates

    Eli Kooris
    6 May 2015 | 1:52 pm
    When you have roommates, you will undoubtedly see each other and talk on a regular basis. Even if you don’t, there are a number of ways to connect with your roommate these days, be it through text message, social media, email or even phone calls if they don’t happen to be at the apartment. However, despite the ample amounts of communication and the fact that they live one wall away from you in many cases, bits of communication will still get lost—or never happen. Things like “buy more paper towels;” or things like “pay cable bill;” or things like “wanna go to this party?”…

    Craig Mische

    If your lake home is on the market or if you will be listing it for sale soon, I have some thoughts on how to improve its image in the eyes of prospective buyers. This is the time of year when the lake home inventory is at the highest point so there is more competition for your lake home and to sell and obtain the highest sale price possible you need to make the home stand out. Step one, detach yourself from your lake home and walk up to the front door with your buyer goggles on and think about the first impression. If some landscaping around the front door is necessary or the door needs…

    The median size of a home built in the U.S. in the first quarter registered 2,521 square feet, up 76 square feet, or 3%, from the fourth quarter, according to Commerce Department data released Tuesday. It was the first increase for that measure after three consecutive quarters of decline. Robert Dietz, an economist with the National Association of Home Builders, suggests that last quarter’s increase is due more to a smaller amount of housing construction in the first quarter relative to previous quarters than to a return to a market focused on megahomes.

What if it's an exit path for the British designer that could see him travel back to England, spend more time with his family, and eventually leave Apple? Many of the company's closest followers aren't seeing this as a promotion. Rather, they think it's the end of a crucial era for Apple. First, let's look at what was actually announced.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin's dream of uniting the self-declared separatist republics in eastern Ukraine under the banner of Novorossiya, or New Russia, was put on hold indefinitely last week as Moscow moves to abide by the terms of February's ceasefire deal. Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Russian state-owned newspaper Rossiiskaya Gazeta that "we say that we want [these republics] to become part of Ukraine." His comments echo those of Alexander Kofman, the defence minister of the separatist-run Donetsk People's Republic, who told Vechernyaya Makeyevka…

    A speculative bubble is a situation in which news of price increases spurs investor enthusiasm, which spreads by psychological contagion from person to person, in the process amplifying stories that might justify the price increase." This attracts "a larger and larger class of investors, who, despite doubts about the real value of the investment, are drawn to it partly through envy of others' successes and partly through a gambler's excitement."

Politicians make solemn pledges to build 200,000 more homes by some vague future date to offset this supposed shortage. But the market is still way off the volumes of previous decades. Is there really a shortage of property in this country, and is this the main factor in ever increasing prices? Merryn doesnt seem to think so.

    19 May 2015 | 11:08 am
    If the government is to run a surplus to pay down national debt, it does so by reducing private sector savings. So a permanent surplus policy involves economic contraction or increasing private debt (which eventually can't be sustained). Simples, with a minor caveat about velocity of circulation. The only thing I'd take issue with is his claim that increasing public sector deficit is expansionary - it depends how the finance is raised, and in the UK it's generally through the bond market, and such that no new credit is created.

    14 May 2015 | 1:12 pm
    By Rebekah King, National Housing Conference On May 13, the House Appropriations Committee approved the FY 2016 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) bill. The mark-up session led to five amendments, but none made substantive changes to the bill. Much of the discussion at the mark-up echoed remarks from the subcommittee hearing but with more discussion of the need for sequestration relief and the lack of agreement among the committee to pass a bill that set spending levels above the Budget Control Act caps. Subcommittee Chair Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) described the bill as…

    by Nabihah Maqbool, National Housing ConferenceHaving finished my masters in public health last year at the University of Missouri, I have been fascinated with the proposition that all policies can affect a person’s health. I was given the opportunity to work with the National Housing Conference this semester as a research intern, allowing me to investigate some of the ways in which health intersects with housing and housing affordability. As nonprofit organizations increasingly seek to escape their silos to work with other sectors, new connections are being made to improve the wellbeing of…

  • In Honor of Memorial Day, Some (Good) News About Veterans’ Housing

    Lisa Selin Davis
    25 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    MivPiv/iStock Despite our gratitude for the almost 25 million U.S. veterans for their service, we haven’t done a stellar job making sure they’re properly housed. According to the advocacy group Veterans Inc., more than 300,000 veterans are living on the streets or in shelters each night and about 33% of homeless men in this country are veterans. So here’s the good news: New developments around the country are either being designed for veterans or adding veteran-friendly homes to the area. More companies are offering housing assistance for vets, too. For Memorial Day,…

    22 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    ABC Photo Archives/ABC via Getty Images Sixties Hollywood heartthrob Lyle Waggoner is selling his $2.1 million home in La Quinta, CA. The 5,290-square-foot home has classic Hollywood charm in spades.

    Selling Strategies for a Hot Miami Real Estate Market Ready to move up, but worried about entering a cut-throat buyers’ market? I ensure every homeowner has a viable plan for selling high and buying smart from day one. When the greatest fear of selling your home is selling your home, you need an understanding of smart options to win and make the move without headaches or hardships. Sellers sometimes get an instant home valuation, or a look at recent sales in their neighborhood. When I sell high, won’t I have to buy high?

  • The Rise of Single-Family Rentals

    Aaron Terrazas
    27 Apr 2015 | 9:06 pm
    Over the past decade, almost all of the growth in America’s households has been driven by renters, especially renters of single-family residences (SFRs). Owning the stereotypical modest home with a white picket fence was long a hallmark of the suburban society that characterized the second half of the twentieth century (at least in the popular imagination).  But the foreclosure crisis triggered by the Great Recession made renters out of millions of former homeowners.

  • Hold the Umbrellas! A Look at GDP

    Keller Williams Realty International
    17 May 2015 | 1:32 pm
    Gross domestic product (GDP) is important to understand because it has a big impact on practically everything in the economy. When the economy is healthy (represented by GDP between 4-6 percent), for example, we normally see lower unemployment rates as labor demand increases to meet the growing economy. A negative GDP growth rate can forecast a recession. GDP grew by just 0.2 percent in the first quarter of 2015, which is below the 1 percent economists were expecting. In addition to unimpressive GDP growth in March, the trade deficit grew to $51.4 billion, which is a six-year high and could…
  • Buy a House or Rent? It Depends Where You Are

    Keller Williams Realty International
    16 May 2015 | 4:48 pm
    Is now a good time to buy or rent a house? While it depends on your market, overall, the financial rewards of investing in real estate outweigh renting. Here’s a look at why more people are deciding to buy vs. rent in 2015. Home prices were driven higher in the first quarter of 2015 as existing-home sales rose. Regional statistics show that in the Midwest, prices have risen nearly 10 percent compared with a year ago. In the South, prices climbed more than 9 percent and in the West they rose 8 percent. This is good news for current homeowners, but could be disconcerting for…
  • A Look Beyond the Hammer: Housing Starts for Q1 2015

    Keller Williams Realty International

    Your clients always want to know, “Is now a good time to buy or sell?” To uncover the answer, one of the first places experts look is at the amount of new construction and building permit applications. Many experts view home building as one of the most reliable leading indicators of economic activity. Not only does increased home construction indicate more housing demand, it fuels jobs. It is estimated that for every 1,000 homes under construction, 2,500 full-time jobs are created. Although housing starts rose slightly over February in March 2015, to 926,000 overall, new housing starts…

Or who Hollywood thinks we are (don't get me started on who we think they are).  But I guess there would be no story if there wasn't a bad Realtor guy driving the action.

    You are eyeing a home that you want to make an offer on, but you need a little more time.

    20 May 2015 | 1:33 am
    It's a little-known fact that Queen Elizabeth called Malta home for a period between 1949 and 1951.

    There are a few things that drive home buyers to double (or triple) their commute times, expand their budgets or even consider moving houses in the first place. Living next to a top school is the number one driver. With so much attention paid to schools, it’s no wonder why buying in the best school districts has long been a rule of thumb in real estate and for families with children. With that in mind, we looked at the highest ranking public schools across the GTA, as rated by the Fraser Institute, and calculated home prices within each of their boundaries.

    As Mills Properties moves through the process of Scaling Up; I’ll be sharing some random thoughts along the way. Today will be really random – or not. We shall see. Scaling a company ranks as some of the toughest work one will do in their professional life. The saving grace being that the nature of scaling anything requires the collective force of many – not just one. But there are keys to being successful. Three of those keys are Vision, Mission and Values. It’s been said many times over but Vision, Mission and Values are central to the success of any organization.

  • Amortization

    financemyhome1
    5 May 2015 | 2:31 pm
    The word describes the process of accounting that will repay a loan over time. Residential buyers will most commonly be required to have an amortized mortgage. When amortizing a fixed rate mortgage, the payment remains constant for the entire term but the allocation of what goes to principal and interest changes with each payment that is made. Since an amount of each payment retires the principal, the interest due on the next payment is calculated on the unpaid balance after the previous payment was made. This means that an increasing amount is applied to principal on each payment while the…

    Paying more for your house payment does not make your home more valuable. It does mean that the mortgage rate may be higher than it has to be. Even though fixed rates may never again be as low as they are currently, an adjustable rate mortgage may provide the lowest cost of ownership depending on how long a borrower plans to own a home. There are different types of ARMs but the one in this example is a 30 year mortgage with the rate fixed for five years and can adjust every one year after that based on independent indexes. Another feature of a FHA ARM is the maximum rate change in one period…

    Buyers may not understand it but now is most likely the best time they will have to buy a home for many years to come. Yes, they would have done better to buy over the past four years while home prices and interest rates were lower but many couldn’t qualify for a loan. Today, home prices remain below what they were at the 2005 bubble and interest rates are only slightly above the historic low over the past couple of years. Better yet, loan qualification requirements are easing and those kept out of the loan market because of foreclosures and short sales are again able to qualify for a…

    Home staging isn’t just about decorating; it’s an essential part of making sure your home gets sold. A home that has been staged to attract house hunters will be easier to market and help you get the price you’re looking for on a sale. Despite the impact that staging can have on a sale, some sellers remain unconvinced of its importance due to some common myths and misconceptions. In the last year I encountered a seller who hadn’t made any improvements on their home in 25 years and yet was set on an asking price that was comparable to homes in his neighborhood that had been recently…

    Let’s say you’re a recent college grad. You’ve landed your first real job (or maybe you’ve been working it for a while already) and after years of dorms and apartments, you’re realizing you might as well start building equity in a place of your own.

    Your home is your biggest investment, so it goes without saying that you’ll do anything to protect your property. This is why you have homeowners insurance to covers damage to your property and belongings in the event of theft, fire or natural disaster. Additionally, homeowners insurance provide liability coverage if someone is injured on your property. If you’re financing your home through a bank, your lender will require homeowners insurance. And depending on where you live, you may have earthquake insurance or flood insurance. You might think this is all the coverage you need.

  • Do banks require a home inspection before approving a loan?

    Jason Thoele
    21 May 2015 | 10:13 am
    A bank doesn’t require you to get a home inspection in order to obtain a mortgage. If there are obvious major problems that affect value, the appraiser may note it in the appraisal report. However, their job is not to inspect the home, just to determine value. Although the bank doesn’t require a home inspection, if your purchase contract mentions a termite report, the lender will require that to be performed and pass before you close. A termite report lists more than pest infestations. It also mentions obvious structural defects, such as wood rot, etc. These are classified into…

Then, we would always know when we needed a drain cleaning service. Or, imagine if homes came with a warning that reminded us it was time to check our drains for potential clogs every 3,000 flushes or so. Technology is probably being developed as we speak to make these musings a reality.

    So: you’re not a pro-marketer, right? Well…. you kind of are (in a way). In your life, you market your brand to the world day in and day out. What brand? Brand “You”.  It’s about what you decide to share with the world and how you present yourself. Just as marketers decide what aspects of a product they are going to share, and how they are going to do so – you are doing the same every minute of every day. The way you brand yourself creates important friendships, connections and experiences. Your branding efforts directly correlate with your life satisfaction, or lack thereof.

Well wait, a lot of articles do mention why becoming a real estate investor is awesome, but they do it from the perspective (in my opinion) of looking from the beginning outward, rather than speaking directly from the results themselves. So for a fun, different kind of article, I’m going to give you an insight into my week.

It’s a place where you feel safe and cozy. Protected from danger. Well, comfortable. What does your comfort zone look like? How much time do you spend in it? Before we go into some specifics on ditching your comfort zone (hopefully, forever), let’s look at how your comfort zone isn’t that cool after all.

    The KCM Crew
    21 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    If you are planning on selling your home over the next two years, now may be the time to act. Demand is high, supply is low and many homeowners are benefiting from an almost auction atmosphere with several buyers fighting for their house in the current multi-bid environment. Higher prices and less stringent contingencies are making it easier for the seller and their family. However, there may be more (and better) competition about to hit the market in the form of newly constructed homes. This may put an end to the buyers’ frenzy over the limited inventory of existing homes which has been…

    Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code provides an alternative strategy for deferring the capital gains tax that may arise from sale of your business/investment property. By exchanging the property for like-kind real estate, property owners may defer their tax and use all of the proceeds for the purchase of replacement property. Like-kind real estate can include business/investment property, but not the property owner’s primary residence.

  • Lessons from the First Real Estate Project Crowdfunded by Fundrise

    admin
    24 May 2015 | 8:24 pm
    The first ever crowdfunding project in real estate was due to the efforts of two brothers, Ben Miller and Dan Miller, founders of Fundrise. They used crowdfunding to renovate an old building in the neighborhoods of Washington D.C. At the time, they did not have any idea of how crowdfunding would later transform the real estate investing industry. The brothers were raised in a real estate family, and they had a goal of giving everyone an opportunity to invest in commercial real estate, which was only for large-scale investors then. Fundrise is a real estate crowdfunding platform that allows…

This is happening, it won’t be stopped, and anyone who says otherwise is probably trying to protect themselves from a market they don’t control. Crowdfunding via popular websites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter has been popular for years. And these investment platforms have experience funding more than just art projects and coffee shops. They have financed much larger projects, like video games, wearable technology (see: Oculus Rift), and more…

    Melissa Allison
    22 May 2015 | 1:27 pm
    Maybe Paul McCartney can’t buy love, but he did just land a Manhattan penthouse with views fit for a knight, the New York Post’s Page Six reports. The duplex has 5 bedrooms, 5-plus baths and 40 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows with a terrace of glass overlooking Central Park. White marble floors start in the foyer and continue through a formal dining room into a double-height living area that features a brass-and-floating-glass staircase.

  • Katharine Hepburn's Lifelong Connecticut Estate on the Market at $14.8M

    Melissa Allison
    22 May 2015 | 12:17 pm
    The Connecticut seaside home where Katharine Hepburn spent family vacations and returned often throughout her life, and where she spent her final days, is on the market for $14.8 million. The acting legend’s parents bought the property in the Fenwick section of Old Saybrook, CT, around 1913, when Hepburn was a child. The home was washed away by a hurricane in 1938, several years after she’d won her first Academy Award. The actress dug her mother’s silver service out of the sand and rebuilt the home, creating the brick structure that still stands along the banks of Long…

  • Housing Less Affordable for Military Families Than for Civilians

    Melissa Allison
    22 May 2015 | 10:08 am
    Rachel and John Zohn are hopping from their home on an Air Force Base in Mississippi this summer to one in Montgomery, AL. Although Montgomery has a neighborhood they like, it would cost more to live there than on base — even after they factor in their “Basic Allowance for Housing.” Landlords are often other military families who know precisely how much the local BAH is for various ranks and will charge that amount for rent, Rachel said. Buying a home in Montgomery might make more financial sense on a monthly basis, she said, but not when you figure that, like most military…

    In my previous post I talked about my first impressions of Podio.  While I was a bit overwhelmed it was easy to see that Podio was a good option for managing your wholesale business. One of the big draws for using a system like Podio is how customizable it is. That is a great feature but it also can be a negative one if it creates to many complexities. After spending about 2 weeks figuring things out, I’m happy to say that Podio is very simple to setup.  It took me a few Do Overs before I understood the best way to set things up.  Once I did though it all made sense and allowed me…

    This post is going to be a part of a series of posts as I get into the world of Podio. Sometimes the first impression says a lot about an application. Quite often the initial look at an application causes us to get that overwhelmed feeling in our guts and we turn around and never come back. I have found this to be even more true if the application is FREE like Podio is. Mostly because you have nothing invested in it. These are truly my first reactions when I signed up for Podio today. To give you a little hint, I didn’t exactly jump right in and start entering my leads. What is Podio?
