How to Choose a Feng Shui Consultant.... A common question for when choosing a Feng Shui consultant is, Should I choose a consultant based on their credentials or should I choose based on my budget? The answer is, you should choose based on both and really after you speak with them over the phone before deciding to move forward.

    This photo explains the reason why so many people never accomplish their dreams.  It explains why we gain weight, why we start on the road to greatness and never show up, and why really smart, ambitious, and hard working amazing people will never amount to anything. Listen up, because if you understand this concept as I explain it below, you might end up being one of the few that achieves everything you set out to in life. First, let me explain the photo.  On the right is my red Keurig coffee machine which no longer works.  Knowing that it would take ten days to get a replacement from Keurig, I bought a new Keurig since Lord knows I can’t go without my coffee for ten minutes, never mind ten days.  Of course, I had every intention of returning the broken, red Keurig machine, and upo...

The Real Estate Market Recovery Faces Its Latest Threat   A housing recovery may be under way, but there’s an obstacle that appears to be slowing down the rebound: the unusually high number of buyers who walk away from their contracts.   An average of nearly 18% of signed contracts on existing home sales were canceled during the three months ending July, according to data released this month by Capital Economics, an independent research firm. That’s the highest all year and the most since May 2010, when that figure reached 23%; in the five years before the housing slump started, the average never went higher than 10%. Separately, 36% of Realtors are reporting some kind of problem with a contract, including cancellations, delays and renegotiations of the sales terms, according to August ...

Should Bronx Home Owners Sell So Near to the End of The Year? Selling your home as the end of the year approaches is actually a good idea, but you need to have the right strategy in place. The holidays will be here before you know it and it’s vital that you put your plan of action into play now, to ensure that you get the best results for yourself 60 and 90 days into the future as you work through the process of your move. The fourth quarter of the year can cause some sellers to worry if their home hasn't sold yet. But according to Trulia.com, there is still time to sell. Typically, many buyers want to move and get situated before the actual end of the year and holidays are here, but that shouldn’t give you pause. Yes, the spring is considered a prime time to sell; however, there is sti...

Next Housing Moves Are Being Considered by Baby Boomers Many older baby boomers have been putting off moving for years now, due to weak housing markets, price declines and losses in their retirement accounts. But as markets are beginning to recover, some may be unearthing their buried plans to downsize, move closer to their children or relocate to a warmer climate. Whether they ultimately make a move has a lot to do with their finances and where they live.   “I think people are sick of waiting,” said Jennifer Darby Metzger with ERA Justin Realty, in New Jersey.

Bronx Housing Market Climbs As U.S. Housing Market is on the Rise! The U.S. economy is rounding the Labor Day turn and it appears that the housing market it finally climbing back up, after many attempts and failures.   It is nothing of mystery, just the facts of supply and demand. For the first time in years, the supply of both new and used homes available for sale has dropped below demand.   With the basis of supply and demand, as supply diminishes and demand remains...rising prices are sure to follow. The housing market is affected as any other market. Prices have been coming up each quarter over the past 2 years.   The rise in prices has sparked a light and seems to be convincing would-be homebuyers that it does not pay to wait, considering mortgage interest rates are at 60-year lows...

New Yorkers': Do You Live With An Attitude of Gratitude?   Imagine for a moment one of those nights when you just can't fall asleep and you have to get up early the next morning for a very important meeting of which you are the keynote speaker. Your alarm clock goes off early in the morning waking you from what little sleep you had. You stumble out of bed, have a quick shower, grab a coffee and some toast, and off you go to fight the traffic on the way to work.   Does that sound like the start of a terrible day? Most would answer 'yes'. Few people however, would answer, 'no'. These are the people, who are in my opinion blessed with a gift. A gift that determines how they view their life. These people live with 'an attitude of gratitude'. For them, the situation described could be worse....

Happy 63rd Anniversary Hawaii   Mahalo, Hawaii for 60-plus great years. Sixty-three years ago, tomorrow, Hawaii was added as the 50th state to the United States of America. This happened 172 years and 4 months after the first state, Delaware, was added to the Union. Oddly enough, the first 11 states were made official in one year, yet it took 172 for Hawaii to crack the list. In case you want to find out what year our state became an official member of the United States, we’ve included a link to the Wikipedia page with the information on the history of what years states were added. Very cool information. As promised, here’s the info on Hawaii, the rest of the states and the party planning: 1) History of Hawaii: http://www.gohawaii.com/statewide/travel-tips/history 2) Wikipedia post: htt...

5 Major Reasons to Consider Selling Your Bronx Home in August           1)The month of August signals that the end of summer will soon be here. For many, it’s the last chance to get out of “dodge” and spend time as a family before the hustle and bustle of the school year, clubs, sports and regular events hits the radar.       It’s a common misconception that selling in August and the beginning of September is not wise and that you’d be better served to wait until mid-September, or later, until the beginning of the following year.           Lik  Like you, many buyers who are relocating would like to have their families settled prior to the school year. Whether it’s a company relocation or a personal one, time is of the essence in August for those finalizing their relocation plans.       ...
