It Seems Like Spring...It's the Best of Times!

It's the Best of Days (you know what's coming), It's the Worst of Days!

The real estate market is picking up at the Jersey Shore.  Yesterday, I began negotiations on a contract for a Brigantine home just one block from the beach.

Laura, it appears folks are getting much more bang for the buck then they are here at this time. That home for $250,000 looks like a steal.

That home has a special place in my heart...it's like a shelter dog or kitten, some problems but a little love can fix it!

Sand between your toes...Good!  But you certainly don't want to get sand on those contracts!  Way to go Laura...Glad to hear the market is picking up there...Here too :0)

Laura, it does sound like spring is at least springing!  And I'd love to have to worry about sand in my paperwork.

Amy, you've got the listings that cry for sand in your contracts!

Pat, it;s springing, lets see if the buyers are in for it!

Laura - I wouldn't want to get sand on my contracts either.  BUT any contract, with sand or not, is a GOOD one:-)

Myrl...it's always the starting point, it's up to me to make it work!!

Laura....sand, surf & the sea-shore, what more could you wish for; all this & the three contracts too. Oh, go ahead, spread the sand; way back in history, sand was used to 'blot' ink dry right? So use ink & use sand.
Congrats!  have a great week ahead.

Laura, I am feeling that Spring is on the way also.  Congrats on getting the contract closed.  It does sound like a good value.

Nancy Fogel - Every time I see photos of this man-made diseatsr, it brings tears of anger and sadness to my eyes. I completely hold BP, Halliburtin, and Dubya & his dick responsible. Their entire administration was wrapped up in the oil industry, and the war machine, which also supported oil profiteering. The American people have been held hostage to these priorities, and are now suffering the consequences.I NEVER want to see another oil rig built; not even in the interim. That would be diverting enormous amounts of money away from developing clean, green technology. In addition, it would continue the profiteering of the entire oil industry.As far as the present Obama administration is concerned, they inherited this huge mess, as well as all the other disastrous gifts of the Bushwacked administration. I believe he is trying to solve the problems, but the Republicans are continuously trying to tie his hands behind his back. Their only goal is to dead-lock the current administration, blame everything gone wrong on Obama, and see him fail. And, if they are successful in this goal, the American people are the ones who ultimately suffer the consequences.June 13, 2010 12:29 pm
