One of my clients is featured - and since publication she has been in 2 more multiple bidding situations!
 
If your home has been updated, and has been priced according to market value, then it will sell.
 
Houses that linger on the market tend to be a combination of not having been modernized, less than ideal location, and sellers who insist on pricing that reflects what they "want" rather than what the home's value is.
 
Obviously there can be other impacting variables, but for the most … (1 comments)

“Responding to charges that he bears some responsibility for the crisis in the mortgage industry, Rep. Barney Frank, D-Newton, said that as a minority congressman for many years he did not have the power to implement regulations sooner.” -Barney Frank, 10/06 /08 WickedLocal.com
 
Barney, come on!
You’ve been a member of Congress since 1981!  And now you would have us believe that the congressman from Massachusetts is just a shy, retiring representative who was  not able to exert any power or influence until he became chairman of the Financial … (1 comments)

Wellesley..A Radical History Worth Preserving..John Prescott’s The MetWest Scene
Posted on October 6, 2008 by bostonkayakguy 
Wellesley’s Historical Past… will soon no longer be on display at the site where a section of the town of Needham decided in 1880 to pull away and create the new town of Wellesley. History buffs take notice!  The original town hall of Wellesley was the site of the Wellesley Country Club building across from Babson College.
Sections of the Wellesley Country Club’s old clubhouse date to the 1740s, but what interests many history buffs is the second-floor ballroom, where a 1880 vote formed … (0 comments)

In my last post, I posed the questions: “What exactly is the bailout, in fact bailing out?  And Whom is the bail out, bailing out?”
The Taxpayers for Common Sense site has listed some of the Tax Sweeteners that are included in this
2008 Emergency Stabilization Act, and while not all of them are “per se outrageous, collectively they are intended to get this bailout passed:”

The bailout..what is it exactly bailing out?  Or perhaps more importantly, WHO is it bailing out?
Well to get to these answers, which of course you won’t find coming out of any of the mainline media, you have to look back.  In fact, if you go back to 1999 the time was the Clinton administration and the place was a conference on mortgage markets for America’s Community Bankers.
Speaking at the conference was chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan:
