What Holiday Movie is Your Favorite? - 11/20/10 05:38 PM
I am heading to Onset this Thanksgiving Holiday to spend time with my parents and extended family. We will be spending a lot of hours together cooking, talking, eating and watching a movie or two. Typically my Dad, who is a Major Movie Buff usually chooses the films we watch. He picks great movies, but sometimes they are a bit esoteric, especially for the children, who love Harry Potter & any Disney movie or sit com. What is your favorite Holiday Film? I'd love to bring some new choices to the table and your suggestions will help. Chicagonow.com has its list (6 comments)

"Wordy Wednesday" Real Estate Terms Defined - 11/17/10 06:18 AM
Agency: The relationship that a real estate agent has with a customer or client. A real estate agent can represent a seller or a buyer. In Massachusetts the relationship is defined at the first meeting and a form is filled out to declare the relationship and ensure the customer understands how the real estate agent represents their interests. Understanding agency is important for the consumer. A Buyer Agent represents the buyer and their interests, while a Sellers Agent, aka the listing agent, represents the seller and their interests. If an agent represents both parties in a transaction she is a Dual Agent.
To bake or not to bake that is the question... - 11/12/10 08:44 AM
I am very much looking forward to the Thanksgiving Holiday this year. We are heading to our family home in Onset, MA, which is right on Onset Bay, a beautiful tranquil spot. In years past I have spent laborious hours trying to make my own pie crust, peel and core apples, make my own custard etc. All I get is exhausted an aching back and a few mediocre pies ( I am a cook not a baker ). A few years back my husband and I listed and sold a gorgeous piece of land in North Brookfield, part of Brookfield Orchard, (1 comments)
Three Main Factors to take into consideration when selling your home. - 11/10/10 08:39 AM
Three factors to consider when selling your home are Condition, Price & Location. Realtors take into consideration all three of these factors when determining the right list price for a property they list. Neither the home owner nor the list agent has much influence over the factor of location. Price and condition are factors that are extremely important and that homeowners do have control over. Listen to your agent when it comes time to pricing your home. Look at the "comps" brought to you and pay attention to the facts of the market analysis. Correct pricing is invalueable as it determines your buyer audience. Homes (2 comments)
