NEXT! and so on into 2012 - 12/30/11 02:58 PM
I am sure I am just llke so many of you who did not achieve all the goals I set for myself in 2011. So what! I achieved a good 85% of them and when I set my goals each year, as I have today they are mostly reach and stretch goals. I don't ever worry about what I didn't accomplish, but I make an effort to find joy, happiness and energy in the goals I did accomplish. Setting goals sets you apart, you know. Having those goals close at hand makes you remember them. Reviewing your goals on a consistent (11 comments)
Good news from FHA- Guidelines extended through 2012 - 12/29/11 10:49 AM
The Federal Housing Administration has extended the "temporary waiver" on the anti-flipping rule through 2012. This is great news for the investors, the homeowners looking to buy houses that have been rehabbed and for all the potential new foreclosure listings that are sitting in limbo right now in our neighborhoods. The rule of "arms length" transaction stays in place. A lender must show the FHA a reason for a loan that is more than 20% above the value of the acquisition price. Investors should have no problem showing this reasoning. Rules that investors follow is acquiring a property at 20-30% under (1 comments)
No Snow, Let's go to the beach! Anguilla Real Estate - 12/27/11 10:25 AM
Here in the Northeast there are really only three choices during the holidays. Stay home and visit with family and friends, go to lots of movies and eat lots of food is one choice. Many New Englanders head to the mountains in search of snow, only this year there is relatively no snow and the snow that is had was man made. My choice is to head to the beach. If I am looking for the best beaches I am thinking of Anguilla where there are 33 of the best beaches with several of them on the list of the best (8 comments)

Setting Goals; Goals Not Met! Now what? - 12/16/11 10:03 AM
During the frenzy of goal setting for next year, what are you doing with the goals that you set last year at this time that are still yet, unmet? Do you just roll them over? Do you think about them and wonder why they are not met? Do you devise a strategy for meeting the goal this year, or do you just move on? It is said that successful people set goals and this is true. It is taught that you have to visualize your goal and keep it fresh in your mind to achieve the goal, this too, is true. (6 comments)
Consumer Confidence of the Weathy is back, Anguilla Income Property - 12/14/11 02:49 PM
My regional paper, The Boston Globe, reported today that Luxury Spending is reaching prerecession levels. Furs are flying out of the stores, precious diamonds and jewelry stores are working overtime to get things to their clients and all this is based on the facts that the pendulum is swinging in retirement accounts and portfolios are regaining ground. My first thought was of the properties in Anguilla I am listing. Anguilla real estate is one of the best investments in the Caribbean. With the rental rates on the island the highest in the Caribbean you can rent your property and pay down (6 comments)
Boston, Back Bay, Condominium housing report Nov 2011. With 226 Condos in the market this month we see that that Days on Market is going up, the average price going up, the average sale price coming down and this is all normal for this time of year. Seasonally affected sales traditionally go down in November, but will rise a bit in December as people will rush to get in under the tax year. You can bet the sellers are willing to offer appropriate concessions if buyers are reasonable. There has been a bit too much unreasonableness out there this year. (2 comments)

When the Frost looks like sand, Anguilla vacations - 12/06/11 09:16 AM
When the Frost looks like sand, Anguilla vacations Boat Ride to Scilly Cay When I woke the other day I looked out and saw a vast expanse of white. I was still not fully awake, maybe even still dreaming and I thought of the perfect beaches in Anguilla. Looking forward to a winter vacation on the beach is one of the joys of life. Having a place to relax and rejuvenate brings such a spring to my step in December. I know this is a month we have to step lively anyway with the holidays and all the end of the (6 comments)

Wellesley November 2011 Housing Report Wellesley, MA Single Family Housing Report November 2011 had a larger number of homes in the market than either Weston or Wayland. This isn’t entirely a surprise it is a larger community. The Average Days on Market (DOM) went up, but that is happening all over this area right now. With the media spewing as much conflicting information as possible it has buyers and sellers confused. Consumer confidence is also an issue, it is hard to know what to believe. The truth is that the market has been fairly stable. The slight ups and downs are (0 comments)
Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report November 2011 is filled with some interesting statistics. Hey, is anyone else tired of the misinformation that the media is spewing regarding real estate. Homes represent a backbone of our economy. Think about it, architecture, design, building, machinery, appliances, skilled labor, automobiles, landscaping, glass, fixtures and all sorts of everything else goes into our homes. A single family home can represent hundreds of industries and their survival. Why we can’t get on the right page with our information is baffling to me. These statistics help weed out misinformation and conjecture. Let’s get at (4 comments)
