Heads Up Hair Cutters of Thornwood NY - Great Place for Women and Men My wife and I have been going to Heads Up Hair Cutters for years.  We were both there last Friday.  As our hair stylist Lorraine was cutting my hair I was working on Active Rain on my iPad.  Lorraine looked down and said, "Sorry about being nosy but what is that?"  I explained that it is a real estate blog and I am writing about a local business.  I told her that I would like to write about her next.  She thought that was a cool idea.

It's amazing how much impact all of our "stuff" has on our lives. Sometimes, all that clutter can just be stressful and overwhelming.  Sometimes, we have so much stuff, we can't find what we're looking for...and we waste a lot of time.  Sometimes, we have limited space (e.g. if we move into a smaller home) and we need to find ways to condense and organize our stuff.   Well, if you live in Westchester NY, you are in luck since one of my good friends, Marcia Sloman, is an expert on organizing.  Her company is called "Under Control" and she is one of the county's first Professional Organizers.  She has been doing this since 1992 and believe me, she knows her "stuff."   Marcia Sloman specializes in the management of “stuff” - paper, time, and priorities - and in maximizing and managing limi...

 The "Bail Out" or the "Buy In", depending on if you fall for the propaganda, was/is intended to "save" the economy by injecting capital back into the financial system. The general idea is that the Federal Government will buy distressed financial instruments, like mortgage backed securities, and coax them back into being "performers" or to hold them long enough until they are once again valuable. That is a severe simplification, but I think one that is generally agreed to by the public. However, I don't think that is what will happen at all. The above scenario implies that the Government's money has a pretty direct route into the lives of distressed home-owners. Reason Number 1- Why the Bail Out Won't Affect Your Short Sale The Government Has Bigger Fish to Fry. If you think the mortgag...

Foreclosures are on a constant increase. What can we do to address this evergrowing issue? See what we think.Homeowners who can't afford their mortgage payments may not find much in the way of rescue or relief in the U.S. government's $700 billion bailout of the financial markets. But while the feds have fearfully sat on their hands and watched a severe credit crunch turn into a major crisis, a number of states have introduced their own foreclosure prevention programs, as detailed in "Defaulting on the Dream: States Respond to America's Foreclosure Crisis," a report by the Washington, D.C.-based Pew Center on the States. The seven "hardest-hit" states are California, Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Texas, New York, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana and Pennsylvania. Two of them, New York and Ohio, al...
