syracuse: The Shivers I'm Feeling Are Coming From The Article, Not Market Conditions - 10/06/08 05:12 AM
Today's Syracuse Post-Standard has a front page article titled "Sellers in CNY feel a shiver".  I'm not providing a link to the article because of what it contains:  the address to a house currently listed for sale and disclosure that A) the house is vacant, and B) that the sellers (credited to the listing agent as apparently told to the reported) would consider a low-ball offer.
The article by-line "Tour of open houses across Onondaga County shows sales are slowing down" doesn't seem to be supported by the article as it has been presented in print, but truly that is … (5 comments)

syracuse: Out of the Mouths of Babes (and Teenagers) - 09/24/08 08:57 AM
My 13 year old daughter just announced that she knows how to make millions.  Solar powered motorcycles.  Wind powered cars.  Lawn mowers that run on grass.  And she doesn't want me to post this on the internet in case someone steals her ideas and makes money from it before she gets a chance to.  So this is a formal announcement that the ideas are hers.  She already has a name for "it" (whatever "it" is), but won't tell me because it's stupid.  Personally I think she just doesn't want it posted on the internet, in case someone steals that from her too.

syracuse: Sarah Palin or Sharon Wager? - 09/24/08 04:40 AM
In light of the seemingly endless remarks about how I look like Sarah Palin, I've decided to have a little fun with it.  Here's a little quiz to see if you can figure out if it's me or Sarah Palin.
Question 1)  a, has five kids; b, has 4 kids
Question 2)  a, hockey mom; b, hockey mom
Question 3)  oh wait, I guess we have that hockey mom thing in common
Question 4)  a, is at the forefront of politics; b, doesn't publicly discuss politics
Question 5)  a, has a pregnant teenage daughter; b, has a … (6 comments)

syracuse: I Haven't Gone Anywhere (Except a Little Insane) - 09/23/08 12:47 PM
I've been "spoken to" twice today about why I haven't been blogging much lately, so I'm here to explain.  Having an unknown person email... well that sort of pushes me into a response.
I was off.  I took some time off, and it's been okay.  I had a very good month in July, and as the deals started closing, I realized that I was in a good position to take a couple weeks off.  It's not that I didn't want to work.  I wanted to spend some time with my kids before they went back to school, and then I wanted … (2 comments)

syracuse: One Lucky Family in CNY Gets to Meet Ty! Winner Announced! - 08/06/08 05:43 AM
The winner was announced today!
Straight from, one lucky family in central New York will be getting a new home for free, through the very popular ABC television show "Extreme Makeover:Home Edition".  The seven day project is set to begin August 18, and the winning family will be notified that day.
Naturally, the thoughts running through my head are pretty transparent:  Is it anyone I know?  Could it be in my neighborhood?  Where might I bump into Ty Pennington?  I understand volunteers are needed.  What are they looking for in volunteers?  Am I more likely to see Ty … (3 comments)

syracuse: I'm Looking for a Green Builder - 06/30/08 09:21 AM
Turning our lives around and going greener is not going to happen overnight, although at times I wish it was going along a little more quickly. I saw a great blog a few weeks ago called A Place For Our Stuff on NYCO's blog about Central New York.  Its poignant insight into how we live, where we live, and the habits we keep, inspired me to think more seriously about a topic that has been dancing around in my head for several years.  I'd like to work with a builder who's interested in building greener homes, both within the city limits and in the suburbs.

syracuse: Out On Tour of the West Side Today - 06/17/08 09:55 AM
I cruised out on tour today with Bill Bigelow and Brian Normoyle this morning.  We had a little bit of a late start, and had to end at 12:30 to accommodate appointments, so we didn't get to see much.  We also chose to skip several listings that we've already seen, or that were too far out from our offices.
Our first stop was Skyview Terrace in Camillus. Cute.  The wall between the kitchen and dining room has been opened up, which really helps add to the openness of the floor plan.  Our second stop was into the city to Strathmore … (0 comments)

syracuse: What's Selling in Marcellus? - 06/11/08 04:15 AM
So what's selling in the town of Marcellus?  In the past 30 days, just five properties have been changed to a pending status (an accepted contract with contingencies removed).  South State Street, Patterson, Gray Ledge Terrace, Lot 15 Sage Meadows and lot 4 Abounding Way.  Sage Meadows and Abounding Way are both Pigliavento lots.  Listings changed over to a K status (offer accepted but with contingencies) in the past 30 days are East Maple, West Main, New Seneca Turnpike, Hillside and Deerpath.  Combining the two statuses for a total of 10, we have a low list price of $82,000 and high … (0 comments)

syracuse: Fair Housing and "Testers" - 05/08/08 04:17 AM
A couple weeks ago I took my required Fair Housing class.   I love taking this class.  For starters, it's always smart as a Realtor to be "up on" Fair Housing.  Second, the information never gets old, or becomes dull or uninteresting.  Third, it is a reminder that discrimination is still alive and kicking.  Yes, in this day and age.  
The instructor this time, Fran, made a statement to the class that if we think we haven't been tested - guess again.  It made me think back to two separate incidents that occurred to me when I was a new agent.  … (2 comments)

syracuse: Real Estate Activity in Camillus, NY - 03/13/08 04:00 PM
You don't want to call and bother an agent, you just want some basic information about what's available and how prices tend to run in an area.  Buyers might be weighing the pros and cons of several different neighborhoods.  Potential sellers are wondering what they might be able to sell their houses for.  Real estate addicts might just need a little "fix" to hold them over.  Whatever your reason, here's the lowdown on the town of Camillus real estate happenings.
As of this writing, there are 149 single family residential active listingsin the MLS, priced from $24,900 all the way up to $1,940,000.  They've been in the … (0 comments)

syracuse: Is Blogging Really Helping Me? - 03/12/08 04:23 PM
WAIT WAIT WAIT - I don't get this...
The more I blog, the more I should be increasing my internet presence, right????
So, can someone, anyone, explain to me how it is that in the past couple weeks I've suddenly dropped backward on the proverbial Google radar?  Or better yet, if I do a Google image search, I don't show up at all???  I actually just put my name in quotation marks and did a Google image search, and not one image is mine.  There are pictures of other 'Rainers that show up.  For some of these, I guess it sort of makes sense … (7 comments)
