loudog posted this 2 1,526 Views

Here in Upstate New York we enjoy a niche market consisting of New York City residents looking to escape city life and enjoy a little of what country living has to offer.  Along with the extra acreage, privacy, views and water features comes one other requirement of our city buyers, a feature I refer to as the naked factor. The naked factor refers to either the entire property or a portion of the property being secluded enough to be comfortably naked outside.  I don't understand...

The Federal Open Market Committee, the monetary policy arm of the Federal Reserve, held their September meeting today and by unanimous decision, lowered both the Fed funds and Discount rates by 50 basis points each.

I was talking with some friends the other day regarding a new Gated Community called Woodbury Junction in Orange County, New York and one of them mentioned that they "heard" (And I am only repeating what they "heard" I do not know if it is true or not) - that the sales manager of the Woodbury community was emailing real estate agents who were (well within their rights) reporting about this exciting new community, telling them that they are not allowed to write about the co...

escapeso posted this 886 Views

Recently people have been interested in a lot of the more exotic loan programs from no interest loans to negative amortization.  There has been some negatives associated with these loans with the changes in the mortgage industry.  So I wanted to take some time to talk about the almost forgotten 15 year loan.  Some people see the 15 year loan as drab and boring compared to all the fancy loans out there, but there are a lot of benefits of the 15 year fixed-rate loan.

Oakland Ca Real Estate posted this 834 Views

Imagine trying to sell your home in a town where industry analysts believe the inventory currently available could take five years to deplete. This is what is being reported from the Central Valley.
