THE BILL IS WHAT?Were the grapes dipped in gold? Did they charge me 12 times for the cat litter? Should I have chosen the cheaper non-organic eggs? I remember a few years ago I spent a whole lot less for the very same groceries. Plus, I NEVER saved 13 dollars using a so called "Super Savings Card" or coupon. What a clever strategy to make the consumer get the impression of saving when we are not really saving at all! In Real Estate we call this "the illusion of a deal" and (105 comments)

We've talked before about Waterfront Square, some successful short sales we've had at the riverfront condominiums, and why we were concerned about the plummeting values that we were seeing there. Now, Philly.com is reporting that the 35 luxury condos are up for auction from $195,000 - $415,000, at price reductions of over 50%. We have been noticing a few condo auctions this year, but this one is particularly interesting because of the condo's proximity to the new SugarHouse Casino, which we wrote about earlier today. The story mentions that the opening of SugarHouse has been seen as a plus for (4 comments)
Meet Your Neighbors: Borrowing a Cup of Sugar - 10/28/10 09:30 AM
Our of our newest neighbors is bringing new meaning to "Borrowing a cup of sugar" from the house next door. The SugarHouse Casino. Not what you would expect us to write about in our "Meet Your Neighbors" spot of our newsletter, huh? Well, this neighbor quite literally sits on one of the sweetest pieces of Real Estate in Philadelphia. They are located on the rivers edge overlooking the Ben Franklin Bridge to the South and the winding Delaware River bank from the North. SugarHouse's waterfront view were held hostage for decades by an unmanaged, pollution ravaged, and ignored site that was (5 comments)

Ghostbusters in Philly...Who Ya Gonna Call? - 10/27/10 10:21 AM
We'll admit it. When Halloween comes around, showing houses has an added element of suspense and mystery to us. Especially in the older homes, where we wonder who has come before us. The SPIRT of PA (The Southeast Paranormal Investigation and Research Team of Pennsylvania) has a list of Public Investigations and Private Residences on their website, all located in the Pennsylvania area. If you dare, try listening to some of the recordings at Fort Mifflin and Geddes Piper House. They are downright eerie. The Eastern State Penitentiary is probably the scariest supposedly haunted site we can think of in Philadelphia. (1 comments)

Are you Pumped Up ? - 10/23/10 07:58 AM
Are You Pumped Up ? In those offices where the office energy level is high, deals are being made and negotiations are constantly going back and forth. In this environment, Realtors can thrive and learn and their talent level and learning curve can shoot up quickly. In offices where this is not the case, it is dreary and depressing, phones are barely ringing, Realtors are staring at the phone, or maybe they are on Facebook posting an update. No money is being made. It is outright depressing. Obviously, the more successful people that are in an office, the more that will help that (36 comments)

A Very Special Message to the Somers Team - From our Friends at Postgreen. - 10/22/10 12:08 PM
We received this very special message from Postgreen the other day - and it's true, there is a man on our team that can speak to Border Collies! Postgreen, the builders behind several energy-efficient efforts in Fishtown and Kensington, are currently wrapping up their Avant Garage Project, 4 modern loft townhomes with 2 car garages in the mid-300's range that are seeking LEED Platinum status (rendering at left).The project is in Fishtown. Pretty splendiferous, right? We think so, and it's always nice to get a rather charming video message. Thanks, Postgreen!

The Tea Party is in Northern Liberties! - 10/21/10 11:23 AM
We always direct our neighbors to City Planter when they're in need of urban garden supplies and decor, but even if you don't have an outdoor oasis, the Northern Liberties shop is still a resource you can learn from. If you didn't know, City Planter holds workshops quite often at their 4th Street space, and the upcoming events for this season have a little something for everybody. Green space or not. This Saturday's Tea Party sounds particularly stirring to us. The Random Tea Room will join Sarah of City Planter to teach about tea and herbal infusions that you can grow (1 comments)
Are you a cheap date? Or are you desperately in need of one? A blog in Philadelphia is revealing cheapskate secrets that promise "fun dates for less than $15 per person". $15? That's like 1.5 cocktails. We were skeptical. Cheap Date Philadelphia helps you navigate the expensive waters of dating by posting things to do, which you can then sort by day of the week, location, and interest. They also tweet daily with potential date ideas for each evening. So it's a Tuesday night, and your Date loves baseball? Cheap Date Philadelphia suggests grabbing a slice at Rustica and (1 comments)
Frankford Avenue Has Gone to the Dogs - 10/19/10 03:50 PM
And we mean that in the very best possible way...Frankford Avenue in Fishtown is quickly becoming a destination for dog-owners. The recently opened the Lola Bean, which was named after the owners' dog, Lola,at 1325 Frankford Ave., is just one instance of puppy love. They serve La Colombe coffee, pastries, and sandwiches, and for those animal lovers, vegan baked goods and veggie panini.

It’s Harvest Time in Fishtown - 10/19/10 10:50 AM
A pumpkin patch in Fishtown? Believe it.

There will be hayrides and live music from 10 am - noon.

The One That Got Away: The Importance of a Buyers Agent - And a Lender ! - 10/17/10 12:07 PM
The One That Got Away: The Importance of a Buyers Agent - And a Lender ! (My Long Fish Tail - Getting Sucked into the Bank of America <BOA> abyss) I had a feeling that something might go wrong when the buyers agent on my team said "Chris, the buyer plans to submit an offer on the property, but wants to use a "family friend" as his agent." We both wondered why the other agent did not show his "client" the property in the first place but it made sense later when I discovered that this "family friend" was way out in a different (9 comments)
Tonight is the last night that you can catch a glimpse of Light Drift, the lighting installation along the Schuylkill Riverwalk that has everybody talking, interacting, and taking photos of. As we approached the crowd checking out the lights last night, the buzz immediately hit us. Strangers were talking excitedly to each other, explaining how the glowing orbs worked. If you approached one, it started pulsing blue and green, and if you sat down in the orb seat, it actually changed its hue and set off a reaction in the orbs that were shining in the water. Photographers were snapping (1 comments)

If the Schuylkill Riverbank looks more colorful this weekend, and by colorful, we mean lit up with blue and green orbs, don't worry that there's been an extraterrestrial invasion. It's just part of DesignPhiladelphia, an interactive lighting installation titled Light Drift that will set 100 vacuum-formed orbs in land and water. The project comes to us from artist J. Meejin Yoon of MY Studio. What's so special about these lights? They're smart. From the installation description: "The resting state of the field is a constant state of green. When a visitor approaches a land orb, the orb will start an (5 comments)
It's at the SugarHouse Casino, Philadelphia's first casino that recently opened along the Delaware River in Fishtown. It looks pretty quiet for the outdoor patio of a casino, right? To our surprise and pleasure, this serene outside area did not seem very casino-like. There are amazing views of the river and of the Ben Franklin Bridge, and there are trees and greenery providing a lush and vibrant atmosphere. You can enjoy a meal or a cocktail while drinking in some of the best views in the city. We did not expect to (3 comments)
We've always loved the fun multi-paneled windows on the door and exterior of this space at 2nd Street near Poplar, which had been home to a shop called Conspiracy Showroom a few years ago. So we were delighted to peer in and see that something new was happening inside. Or something that was "Once Worn." The narrow store has been lined with clothing racks of gently used items for men and women. It's name, Once Worn, does indeed bring to mind that someone once loved that red leather dress on the wall enough to buy it and have an amazing (2 comments)
Urban Topiary Unveiled in Old Kensington - 10/13/10 10:37 AM
What's in season in Old Kensington this fall? Urban Topiary. The Flats at Girard Pointe's living sculpture will be unveiled on October 15. What is this Urban Topiary, exactly? The sculpture is made from over 100 digitally fabricated galvanized steel tubes that will host ivy and flowering vines. During our last Meet the Builders Tour, we were hugely impressed with the Flats, but the Topiary was not ready yet. This is the element that we were most curious about and we are quite excited to see it in person, in all of its street-art-meets-eco-design glory. Go see it for yourself and (1 comments)
Stay Sharp in Northern Liberties - 10/12/10 12:46 PM
They say that showing up is half the battle. Well, that's usually correct, but we'd like to amend that to: showing up with good hair is half the battle. You know that feeling you have after you walk out of the barber shop or salon with an amazing style? You feel on top of things all day, you hold your head a little higher, and overall, you just feel confident, fresh, and ready to take on anything. That's the power of a new haircut. And whether you're an agent or not, feeling like a rockstar translates directly into what you do. (4 comments)
Sweet Pinhole Dreams in Old Kensington - 10/12/10 12:26 PM
It's a funny thing, but as a blogger, you automatically start to become more invested in photography, more so than you ever were before. Your blog can be extremely thoughtful and provocative, but if you don't have good photography, or any images at all, you're only putting in half the effort. In the current scope of things, when smartphones are equipped to shoot above standard point-and-shoot quality, there is no excuse. Anyone can take a decent shot, right? Maybe. But there is still something about a person who has the ability to frame and execute their images so brilliantly that they (1 comments)

Glassphemy in Old Kensington - 10/11/10 09:53 AM
Did you ever think you would spend an evening recycling and have a really good time? Glassphemy is coming to the Crane Arts Building on October 12, and this installation/recycling center encourages you to bring your glass bottles and give it your best shot. Yes, they want you to throw your glass at it. Sounds dangerous, but the 20-by-30 foot steel structure is designed to recycle your glass bottles and is made with bulletproof glass. The project was conceived in Philadelphia by Macro Sea. So whether you're blowing off some steam or just want to pretend you're pitching for the Phillies, (1 comments)
Bench Marketing - What is Your Opinion ? - 10/09/10 07:49 PM
Bench Marketing - What is Your Opinion ? Stephanie and I went to the super market today to do some grocery shopping and saw a bench outside draped with a Realtors marketing on it. There were some people sitting on it so initially you could not see all of it. It reminded me of several pitches I have received in the past to be the exclusive Realtor for this exact same opportunity. I almost did it, but changed my mind. So today, I debated my decision and think I made the right choice. I just do not think folks are thinking (10 comments)

When most Northern Liberties residents think of N 3rd, they think of the iconic bar and restaurant that is basically our second office. If we are not there in person we are wishing we are there.

Designers, Developers, and Decor Addicts: Don't Miss DesignPhiladelphia - 10/06/10 11:26 AM
Design. It's right there in front of us when we're buying a home. It's at the very front of our minds when we're trying to develop, remodel, or sell. And it certainly deserves a celebration and reflection all its own, right here in Philadelphia. We've posted about tomorrow evening's kick-off party at West Elm for DesignPhiladelphia, which runs from October 7 - 17. But we also wanted to mention a couple of other events that jumped out at us.

Cantina Dos Segundos is one of the most vibrantly-hued restaurants in the city and will instantly cheer you up. If you're no pushover, then it may take a zippy margarita or two before you peel off your jacket and make yourself comfortable in Northern Liberties' house of larger-than-life burritos and endless chips with two types of salsa. Which salsa is better, the verde or the traditional, is a heated debate if there ever was one. (2 comments)

One of the things we love about Old City is the fine window-shopping.

Which leads us to Old City Windows, a window design and exhibit contest that is part of DesignPhiladelphia.
