Before things get crazy tonight, I wanted to take this time to thank everybody who made my 2013 a success.  If it's not for the clients, I have no income or growth.  If it's not for my colleagues, I have no sanity or real estate deals at all.  So, I want to raise a proverbial glass to all of you and say "Thank You." I wish all of you great success in 2014 and hope it's an even better year than 2013 was! And for all of my clients, past and present, remember that I am always here for you, your family, or your friends -- for any real estate need or concern you may have. Happy New Year! Thanks, Anna   Image: HDWallpapersIn.com

With the Federal Reserve recently deciding to taper its monthly bond purchases, many people are worried about the effect this will have on mortgage rates.  Surely rates will go up and homes will become unaffordable overnight, correct?  Well, not exactly according to real estate and mortgage experts interviewed by HSH.com, a trusted mortgage resource.  Here, we will provide their answers and discuss the effect it will have on the Bucks County, PA real estate market. 1.  All three experts agreed that the Fed's tapering of quantitative easing (QE) will have very little impact in the short term.  Their analysis also takes into account a rise in interest rates, which some say does not have much of an effect on obtaining a mortgage as does credit availability.   2.  Rising mortgage rates wil...

I hear it all the time: I don't want to list my home around the holidays.  I rather just wait until the spring when the market is hot.  Most people don't realize that serious buyers are out there around the holidays and in winter.  They are the ones who will battle the elements to go out and see a home the weekend before the family arrives from out of town.  So, with that, here are the 11 reasons why you should list your home over the holiday season.  This a fantastic list provided by the folks writing the KW blog. 11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring when there are traditionally more houses on the market which could ultimately drive prices down. This could mean you sell high and buy low.  10. You can sell now for more money and...

As a resident of any area, you have places that you frequent because of the atmosphere and camaraderie. That place, for my husband and I at least, was The Temperance House on State Street in Newtown, PA. When we decided to move to Newtown a few years, it was the quaint downtown that it apart from other areas. That downtown included the Temperance House, which had a rich history that dated back to the founding of the country. However, today, a story in the Newtown, PA Patch confirmed what we had suspected: "The Temp" was closing. I actually did a review of the Temperance House just last year. It really is amazing how quickly things can change. Here's what The Temp's website has posted for now: The Temperance House wants to Thank You for your past business.   The Temperance House has rai...
