What a week it was!  Last week the benchmark 10-year note yield, which moves inversely to price, made its biggest two-day gain in two years on Tuesday and Wednesday. The yield surged to 3.24% on Wednesday -- up from Monday's 2.94% close.  The cause was the agreement on the tax package worked out by President Obama and Republican leaders that was assumed to be a "done deal."  Of course, we learned Thursday that there might be no deal at all. But Treasuries sold due to concerns that the $800-$900 billion that would be added to the nation's deficit would put more Treasuries on the market, which would lead to their devaluation. Treasuries got a boost on Monday due to Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday evening.  He said that it could be four to five years un...

If you find yourself in the Bolton Connecticut area, and have some free time on your hands, visit Bolton Lake, situated off of Rte. 44, close to Rte. 384.  It's a great place to relax, and get back in touch with nature.  There are 6 miles of trail around Bolton Lake that carve through pristine, untouched natural terrain.  The hiking is a bit rough, as the trail is slightly overgrown, but it is robust hiking for the nature enthusiast that is up for the challenge. Bolton is not just a great place to hike, but a great place to live. Aside from Bolton Lake, there are many other natural reserves in the area that lend themselves to nature and fishing enthusiasts.  The rural nature of Bolton makes it a quiet, tranquil place to raise a family, and its many farms and open valleys add to its old ...

Mortgage lenders assure consumers that their FICO score is just one of several financial markers that will be used to determine whether or not they'll be approved for a mortgage loan. But the cold reality is that consumers with FICO scores that don't cut the mustard won't get a loan. Few credit analysts would disagree that mortgage underwriting standards were almost criminally lax before the housing bubble burst. But in the post-recession economy, many people working in the credit industry, including a growing number of independent mortgage brokers, feel that banks and other major mortgage providers have overcompensated, becoming too restrictive and inflexible in evaluating mortgage loan applicants. At the crux of their complaint are charges that, despite assurances to the contrary, maj...

I had a great open house today at 136 Hebron Road, Bolton, CT.   I haven't done an open house in a while because I, like many people, did not feel that they really worked. But this is a house that people really needed to get into so they could experience the charm and see the fabulous backyard and outbuildings.  So, I felt that this particular house required an open house, and I was determined to make it great one. Coincidentally, I was sent an article from NewsGeni.us entitled "Open Houses That Work."  Because having a successful open house was on my radar screen, I clicked to read the article.  It was a meaty article with plenty of suggestions, many of which I had decided that I needed to try.  But the interesting thing was that the article quoted several Active Rain members, whose na...

My family voted at 7AM this morning.  They told me later, that there was no line.  Keep in mind, we live in a small town in Connecticut with about 5200 residents.  That figure may include children, who do not vote yet.  I went over to our town hall at about ten o'clock.  Again, no line.  Verified who I was, by showing my driver's license.  Chose a little booth, we have a new voting system in Connecticut this year, and proceeded to fill in the dots.  I think it was easier to pull the curtain and flip the levers.  Oh well....  Grabbed my sticker, and out the 2nd door I went.  Thank goodness there was no one outside the 2nd door taking a survey of how I voted.  I really do not like that.  It is supposed to be your private information. Across the street, on our little town green area, the t...

Our small town of Bolton, in Connecticut has a payment of our motor vehicle taxes once a year.  Property taxes, too.  Our property taxes are paid by our escrow account with our mortgage company.  The town offers a new option this year.  You can now pay these fees to the town online, serviced by an outside vendor.  Checking this out was very interesting.  They advised residents that they charged twenty-five cents for each vehicle tax that you paid, to the town.  That sounded okay.  I chose a username and password.  Here we go!  Sounded too easy, it was not.  After three or four attempts, it recognized me.  Then, I had to input the vehicle account numbers.  It did not pull from using my name or address.  Finally, I found my car.  Entered in my card number and wham!  Now, they impose anoth...

Small town east of the Connecticut River, approximately 12 minutes to Hartford and approximately 20 minutes to UCONN, Home of the HUSKIES!  The population is a bit over 5,000, so we do tend to travel for shopping and entertainment in nearby Manchester, Vernon and of course, Hartford.  I have resided in Bolton for over 30 years, moved twice in the same town:)  It is a very close knit community, we have one high school and one public grammar school, which also, is the middle school.  We are known for our tasty strawberries when in season.
