Seeing the Country by the straight and Narrow. - 04/26/09 01:40 PM
Trains may come and trains may go, but not all haul cargo or commercial freight. I have half a mile of train track abutting my property, it's part of the Old Boston / Maine line. It has been a long- long time since it was used for commerce of any type. The tracks are currently lease to a fmaily that runs a tourist train and a three night a week is used by a dinner train. When the cars go by my house they are traveling at less than 10 miles an hour, for sight seeing purposes (and not to spill (12 comments)
Bank owned Bargains...from the listing agent perspective. - 04/21/09 10:42 AM
Buyers Seeking Huge discounts on Listed bank owned properties...Take Notice. Let me bust your bubble a bit, the price that the bank agreed to put on the property has been heavily discounted already. When we, as listing agents are asked to come up with a price we must justify how we arrived at our conclusion. Here are some of the items we are asked to take into account: #1... Other current listings in the area that are comparable to the subject. #2...Other recent sales that are comparable and areas these may be inferior /superior to the subject. #3... (14 comments)
Yearly Vacation rental novel concept at Loon Mountain Resort Lincoln NH. - 04/19/09 02:32 PM
A typical Winter seasonal Rental (for the 6 month ski season) in a high quality location with access to the slopes goes for $12,000 plus utilities. I have a new condominium at south peak resort (on Loon Mt.) that wishes to rent full time. The local employment base doesn't allow for yearly rentals to be very high in price, but rewards shorter term rentals with excellent dollars per night. For a little more than a six months rental, keep the place for the year and enjoy all four seasons in the beautiful White Mountains. My Clients live in North Carolina and (7 comments)
Proud dad post - 04/18/09 12:52 PM
Dear Conor There were times when sleep was but a memory, and all things went into your mouth. I wondered then if I was cut out to be a dad. My ears grew more sensitive to subtle sounds in the night, my sense of smell deadened by noxious diapers and now gym socks that appear in the strangest places. The coughs, colds, bumps and bruises were all part of the growth process. But Yesterday, I was rewarded...nay blessed with pride for this little man of mine came home with a dream report card. Not just passing sophomore math and English, but (19 comments)

Diamond in the rough, home with Million Dollar View...White Mountains N.H. - 04/13/09 05:00 PM
Truth in advertising, this is a breath taking view with mature fruit trees, berry Bushes and heirloom Flowers. The Original Farm that sat on this very foundation was knocked down to make way for a modern center Chimney cape style home. Elsworth Hill, is synonymous with spectacular views ,horse properties , and outdoor weddings. Frank Lloyd Wright style architecture, and boyhood homes of former Governors grace this idyllic setting, and have I mentioned the view too many times already. This home features a private balcony off the master bedroom, a three season sun porch, apple trees and 5 acres of completely (14 comments)

We all offer advice to clients when they are buying a home, here are three areas not many brokers have taken the time to become experts on; Flooring , fire extinguishers and Appliances. *An easy test for good Carpeting. #1. Closely packed surface yarns and tightly woven backing make for a carpet that wears and looks better longer insist on density. #2.

Sceince of; Sleep , Sex , beer and exercise...good news /bad news - 04/10/09 02:47 PM
Two scientific studies...offer Men & Women an excuse to just say no!! Ladies: Did you know, Orgasms don't mean better sleep. It's commonly believed that satisfactory sex with orgasm leads to better sleep for both partners. But a recent experiment conducted by the Medical Aspects of human sexuality group, did not prove it. The sleep volunteers who deprived themselves of sex (with their wives) for one week was compared with the sleep of those same volunteers following sex (with their wives). Results: No difference in quality of sleep, nor in how rested each person felt on awakening.
Men: Did you (28 comments)
Fannie Mae, let's look at the project review process to spur recovery. - 04/09/09 07:47 AM
When a project has more that 10% of all the properties listed, forget about getting a Fannie Mae loan. This is one of those catch 22 moments, in order to sell current inventory, you can't already have too much to sell. Here is one of the big struggles we face with buyers, they see great rates out there but if there is 6 condos for sale in a project of 50, you have exceeded the project review standard set up to accept the mortgage in the secondary mortgage market. You can get a loan from a portfolio lender at a much (0 comments)
