Want New Insight into A Young Buyer's Mind? This morning, while eating breakfast, I watched A&E's Sell this House.  Nothing highly unusual about this on a Saturday morning before heading out to showings later in the morning, but what was unusual is that one of my children watched it with my wife ...
How Much are the Real Estate Taxes on West Hartford, CT, Homes for Sale? Many times when I send listings "automatically" to my clients, and they include homes for sale in West Hartford, Connecticut, my clients question the amount of the taxes.  A few years ago, West Hartford, Connecticut, had a r...
How to Rake a Roof and Why This winter has been very tough on Connecticut!  We have already far surpassed the normal amount of snow that we receive in any given season, and it is only the middle of January.  Last week I wrote a post titled Where is the Snow that Should Be on that Roof?, and felt ...
This Gives New Meaning to a Covered Porch Believe it or not, it was another snow day here in Cheshire, Connecticut!  Really school was called this time because of ice that was scheduled to accumulate after 3-4 inches of snow that fell overnight.  With two feet of snow still hanging around from th...

For too many days this week, the only sunshine I was able to experience was on my back porch; and one day even Mr. Sunshine was hard to find through the drifting snow!  He is starting to make more of an appearance now, but he is looking a little wo...
Connecticut's Storms of the Century The New Haven Register was mentioned on the Weather Channel this morning!  As the Weather Channel reported, this morning's New Haven Register's headline read:  "Storm of the Century:  Which was the Nastiest Snowstorm:  1888, 1978, or 2011?" I have no memory of ...
Where is the Snow that Should Be on that Roof? While looking at properties since the major snowstorm that Connecticut experienced this past week, a number of my buyer clients have asked me why a few roofs don't have the amount of snow coverage that others do.  As you can see from the photo below,...
Grandmother Winter, What BIG Teeth You Have!! As the snow slowly melts off the roof, the temperatures are so low that the drops freeze up again and form amazing icicles--showing once again that this winter has some pretty big teeth!  The scary part is that those teeth are continuing to grow ever ...
