Disparate Dynamics

From the windows of my beautiful hotel room in Amsterdam, I can look out on the Prinzngracht Canal and the wonderfully diverse set of townhouses across the water. Most of them are high and narrow (apparently because in the old days you were taxed on the number of windows you had facing the canal) and many have settled slightly so they are askew, leaning forward or backward or towards one of their neighbors. Because the city is built on Swedish timber laid over marshland, there are no tall buildings. The infrastructure could not support the weight.

INCLINE VILLAGE, NV – Karen Bruno and Megan Warren have always shown their commitment to their community. They continued to improve their knowledge and dedication to the Lake Tahoe lifestyle by completing the BEAR League’s response team training last month.

The training took place March 27 in Incline Village, where more than a dozen residents learned to be residential responders and educators for local bear calls. According to the BEAR League, with trained community members responding to calls, the possibility of a bear’s presence escalating into a problematic situation will decrease. In addition to responding to commercial and residential bear calls, Bruno and Warren will be monitoring neighbors and businesses for trash violations.

Spring Forward

Our spirits rise with the thermometer. Real green shoots begin to pop in Central and Prospect Parks, along the Hudson, and in all the little pocket parks scattered around the city: daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths. The peonies, which love a cold winter, send forth their little red-green shoots, while ducks and geese and warblers wing through town. Can it be any surprise that more real estate gets sold in spring than at any other time of year?

A Successful Transaction: Seller’s Side

Many sellers uncork the champagne once they have a signed Buy-Sell contract on their property. However, as exciting as it is to have a buyer wanting to purchase your home for agreed upon price and terms, the real celebration should wait until the title company is depositing your proceeds and has recorded the title. Unfortunately, a lot can go wrong between signing a Buy-Sell and closing. A real estate transaction is never a “done deal” until it is recorded.

Contingencies and Due Diligence: Buyer’s Side

Buyers and sellers in real estate transactions often think that once they are “under contract” with a buy-sell, they are home free. However, a savvy and competent Realtor will explain to you that the true work is just beginning. A real estate transaction is not over until the title company is asking where to deposit the proceeds and the title is either recorded or in process of recording.
