RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK   Huey's Grill and Tavern   Great small town bar and restaurant with an atmosphere that can not be topped. The MOST ecclectic collection of area and philly memorabilia. A must to come during Halloween and Christmas to see the abundance of decorations. There is not a corner not decorated.   The food is always very good. You can get your traditional sandwiches or bar food, but there are great dinner items as well. My fav....the buffalo shrimp appetizer. My dinner choice is usually either the blue cheese burger or the Greek salad. My hubby's fav...chicken nachos.   And of course, here is a shout out to all the waitresses and bartenders that work there. Always a fun place to go.   Sorry folks, no website. But that's ok:   839 W Main St Lansdale, PA 19446 215-362-0460 ...

Many people are intrigued by the idea of investing in real estate, but most people don’t know where to start.  While there are many factors to consider, the old mantra of investing “Buy low, sell high” is still completely accurate.  And let me tell you, right now is a chance to BUY LOW. Our team has helped several clients put together plans to evaluate and purchase investment properties.  To start, it is critical to understand the different motivations for owning an investment property and which ones will be critical for you.  These motivations do vary from investor to investor.  Of course all investors want to make money, but some are primarily concerned with monthly cash flow while other are more concerned about price appreciation.  To some investors, ease of maintenance and a lower l...

LANSDALE RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK   RistoranteToscano   I love a BYOB. I can grab my favorite bottle of wine and head out to dinner. My husband and I live in Lansdale, and find ourselves a lot of nights, not wanting to deal with dinner preparation. So a great local eatery is important to us. Toscano is always our first choice because we know the food is always good, the service is excellent. Saturday evenings you have the addition of live piano music. John makes you feel right at home.   My favorite are the gorgonzola purses in tomato cream sauce. The fried calamari is perfect, light, not too breaded and never chewy. My husband favors his fresh fish specials, especially the soft shell crabs when in season.   Great menu, and if it's not there, John will be happy to make it for you.   Visit...

A few years ago, it would have seemed impossible to find a decent home in our area for under $200,000.  But today is a new day and housing has never been more affordable in the North Penn area of Montgomery County PA when you consider the current housing values and the ultra-low interest rates available to homebuyers. You’ve been hearing how home prices have fallen and may be wondering how low prices really are these days.  They may be as low as they get.  There are truly bargains to be had in this current real estate climate.  Some come with a bit of extra work, but none-the-less priced accordingly.  Others are “short sales”.  A short sale is a situation where the bank that holds the note or mortgage is willing to accept less than what is owed on that mortgage, hence “short of what is ...
