Trade was extremely volatile with swings of 1/2% in discount points common. The Treasury auctions were not as well received by foreign accounts as traders were hoping. The US relies on foreign central banks such as China to fund our deficit spending. If China were to decrease or cease purchasing US bonds and notes, rates would rise. Interest rates finished the week near unchanged. The inflation data will be the most important releases this week. Inf...

As I was driving through the back roads of Southborough last week, I came upon a herd of "striped cows."  I had to get out of my car to get a closer look and spent some time watching these amazing animals as they peacefully grazed. This group of 13 belted Galloway cows, or " belties" as the locals call them, roam the conservation land near Breakneck Hill Farm in Southborough, Massachusetts.  Belted cows originated in South West Scotland and are distinguished by their white belts of hair surrounding their bodies.  Due to their unique appearance they are sometimes referred to as "Oreo cows."  The care and feeding of this local herd is supported by a number of events that are organized at various times of the year.  The Breakneck Hill Cow Fund was started in 2001 when the ranch owner soug...

Just off of Southville Road and nestled in some of the prettiest conservation land in town is the community of Liberty Estates, Southborough. Constitution Drive leads into the development on one end and connects with Liberty Drive forming a circle around the Liberty Conservation Area. Off of Constitution are the cul de sac neighborhoods of Independence Drive and Adams Circle.  Wentworth Drive completes the community with a third cul de sac setting.  With street names that are so deeply symbolic of a colonial period in history, it is no surprise that this lovely neighborhood is made up of homes that are quintessential colonials in the classic tradition.  The homes include a few hip roofs, federal fronts, garrisons and some just straight faced colonials.  Most enjoy level yards, stunning ...

                                      Key Points For Staging Your House and Getting It Sold...  1.   Staging your home will make your home more marketable.  It is an indisputable fact for a faster sale and to maximize your equity.  Stagers have a set of specific skills that will best market your home.  They will form a team between themselves, the home seller, and your Realtor.  Staging is not a luxury item it is an absolute necessity!  A staged home will show better than new construction and higher priced homes.  2.   Remove ‘YOU' from the sale of your home.  When you decide to sell it becomes stressful emotionally and financially. You invest your heart and soul into it to make it your home. Please realize that promoting the sale of your "house" has nothing to do with you or your perso...
