Westchester is such a beautiful place in the Fall.  Lately, I've just loved my journeys on the highways.  The rides are simply beautiful with the trees changing.   Today, I was in West Harrison, and right before I stopped, I saw this really cool tree. It's in the process of changing colors and it has green and red and orange and yellow all in one. It kind of reminds me of how fireworks look when they are bursting.

On Friday, I went to an appointment for some carpeting.  The house is for sale...and apparently, it's been on the market for 3 yrs (various agents...and the homeowner did not want to discuss this topic.)  The homeowner (who does not live there) knows the carpet in the family room needs to be replaced...it is very dirty with all sorts of stains.  I found her an inexpensive neutral and light colored carpet.   This was a summer home/2nd house for my customer.  There are various "issues" with the house, even though it is fundamentally a good home in a nice area.  Most of these issues can easily be addressed (e.g.  get rid of the extra stuff there, replace the carpet, tidy up a bit).  I encouraged my customer to do this and gave several suggestions (Yes, I learn a lot from the stagers and th...

  The PRICE Is the Same, But the COST Is Less There is more and more research coming out showing that it makes great financial sense to purchase a home today . Whether it be rent vs. buy ratios, income-to-price ratios or income-to-mortgage payment ratios, purchasing a home right now is a bargain compared to historic norms. Now we want to look at the COST of a home today compared to pre-peak prices. According to the most recent S&P Case Shiller price index, residential real estate values have returned to 2003 1Q PRICEs. That, in itself, says something. However, when you factor in mortgage rates, the case for buying a home today becomes even more compelling. In 2003, 30 year mortgage rates stood at 5.88%. Today, they are 4%. How does that impact the actual COST of a home? On a home purcha...

I had a fun afternoon with family today watching my 7 yr old niece in an Elementary school production of Peter Pan.  It was fun seeing all the kids so enthusiastic. On Thurs, my niece called to make sure I was coming and described all the songs she would be participating in.  She complained about how ugly her costume was...and then said "since you're so good at redesigning floors and kitchens, do you think you can redesign my costume?"  I couldn't stop laughing. All in all a fun day and we played a bunch of fun games afterwards.  I had a chance to catch up with my sister-in-law who told me that the ones who put on this play have the best job in the world.  They travel from school to school and spend 2 weeks with each elementary school to put on these plays.  What a fun, rewarding and st...
