Whether you're looking for a small town feel with all of the amenities, or just want to get away from big city life and enjoy some quietude in Syracuse - New York is worth considering.

The Finger Lakes and the Adirondack Mountains are both just a short drive away, and they offer amazing opportunities for hiking, fishing, and camping. In the winter, you can head to the slopes for some skiing and snowboarding, and in the summer you can enjoy the many lakes and rivers for swimming and boating. Syracuse is also home to some great museums and thea...

Check out this handy tool from the Washington Post, where you can check how high rents have increased since 2019. In Clark County, Nevada rents are up 28.5%. Based on multifamily rentals in counties with at least 1,000 units.    Avoiding the Rental Trap in 2022 The rental trap is real!  Want to buy a home in the year ahead — but feel glued in place thanks to ever-rising home prices? You’re not alone.  As a renter, you understand you are caught between a rock and hard place. When rents are rising, but it costs more to move, you just renew the lease and pay more year over year. It's important for you to know rents have been rising since 1988, not just since 2019. While skyrocketing since 2019, the rents have gradually appreciated since 1988. If you are like many renters you want to buy, ...

No one ever said that getting older was easy, did they? As we age, our bodies naturally start to change and we begin to face new challenges. For many seniors, this can mean a decline in health and an overall decrease in quality of life. If you're finding that aging is becoming more difficult than you imagined, it might be time to consider independent senior living. Contrary to popular belief, senior living communities are not just for the elderly! Here are five top benefits of making the switch to independent senior living: You'll have more time for yourself. 55+ living communities are designed to help residents live as independently as possible.

The “warning signs” look all too familiar. Escalating home prices have both buyers & sellers worried that the market is just “too good to be true,” and agents across the U.S. are getting bombarded with the ultimate question: “Are we in a housing bubble?” Let’s take a look at 3 key factors that suggest we’re not, so you can educate your clients and calm fears in your market. PART 1: HOUSING SUPPLY   Last year, home values appreciated an average of 15% across the nation. And while this year’s growth isn’t expected to match it, buyers and sellers are still worried that home prices are too high and that depreciation is likely to follow. However, unlike the Housing Bubble years of the mid-2000s, the major factor driving up home values is that we’re also in a dire inventory shortage. A balan...
