BULLY!!! GREAT FUN MARCHING AT TEDDY ROOSEVELT'S PARADE - 10/25/08 05:13 PM
I never marched in a parade before. I was always a watcher of parades. Today Oyster Bay had a special homegrown parade to honor Theodore Roosevelt's (our 26th U.S. President) 150th birthday.

With the inventory so large, it is imperative for sellers to put some efforts to make their home salable. Your house should outshine the rest of houses in the market. If other factors like location and prices are RIGHT, then the possibilities of your home being in a tip top condition will make the difference. Some cosmetic changes can influence how quickly your property sells and at what price. OUTDOORS: Keep lawn neat and mowed and shrubbery neatly pruned. Remove or replace dead or dying plants. Add color with blooming plants. Place some flowering plants near the door. Store hoses neatly. (6 comments)
