From the NY Times:

Happily Settling for a More Modest Country Getaway

BUYERS looking for a country house in the Hudson Valley or the Catskills in New York State have settled on a more modest ideal: between $200,000 and $250,000 for a home on a few acres, with a picturesque town not too far away.

“That’s what I think of as the ‘little black dress’ of the second-home market,” said David Knudsen, an agent with Catskills Buyers Agency in Sullivan County. “During the peak of the market the price expectation for that house was probably around $300,000, plus or minus $25,000.”

Although sellers have not all lowered their list prices to meet buyers’ expectations, brokers estimate that the price for the typical weekend retreat has dropped at least 20 percent since its peak in 2007. That has lured some city dwellers to take the plunge on a getaway home, even as economic worries, snowstorms and tighter lending standards provided a chilling backdrop for the real estate market this winter.

Some common themes emerge among people who have recently bought houses west of the Hudson River for less than $250,000. These shoppers are paying close attention to property taxes and heating costs, are not particularly interested in renovating and want a second home that is a manageable size. The ease of researching homes and price trends on the Internet has also given shoppers a clear idea about what they expect to pay.

“Buyers from the city are out in the market, but they want a great deal,” Mr. Knudsen said of his clients from the New York City area. “I think one of the big challenges we have right now is a wide gap between buyer expectations and seller expectations, unless there is some distress element on the seller side.”

That distress element is often divorce, death or debt, but two years into a grim economy the motivating factor for a price reduction can also be time.

    Wells Fargo Analysis: 50% Fail HAMP Eligibility

    Wells Fargo has 523,336 borrowers either in trial or approved mortgage modifications as of March 31, more of them as part of the lender’s own foreclosure prevention efforts.

    Of those, 144,932 are part of the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program, HAMP, with active trial and completed modifications, also as of March 31.

    Wells Fargo said half of the 138,000 homeowners who have made three HAMP trial payments as of March 31, will be offered modifications for the full term. Of the rest, 30 percent are expected to be deemed not eligible after documents are received, and another 20 percent will not provide some or all required documents.

    Overall, HAMP’s approved modifications for its five-year reduced-payment term is up to 227,922 borrowers, representing about 19 percent of all trials started. The program’s number of borrowers whose trial or approved modifications have been cancelled because of default or other reasons is 158,052 borrowers – about 13 percent of those who started trial modifications.

    Foreclosures up 33% in new jersey, OUTPACING national rate

    What’s new: Foreclosure filings in New Jersey rose 33 percent in the first quarter of 2010, compared with the same period in 2009, according to RealtyTrac, a California company that follows the foreclosure market.

    Nationally, foreclosure filings were up 16 percent in the same time span.

    What it means: The housing market’s distress is not over, despite government efforts to encourage lenders to make loans more affordable for struggling homeowners.

    How lenders are responding: In New Jersey, 33,612 mortgages are being modified through the federal Making Home Affordable Program; most of these modifications are trial runs. Nationally, more than 1 million loans are in the modification program.

    “Lenders are starting to make a dent in the backlog of distressed inventory that has built up over the last year as foreclosure prevention programs and processing delays slowed down the normal foreclosure timeline.” — James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer, RealtyTrac

    “A lot of people who had adjustable mortgages, some of those [higher interest rates] are now starting to kick in … We have clients who have been through three three-month trial modifications, and probably at the end of the day, they will end up losing their homes.” — Phyllis Salowe-Kaye, head of N.J. Citizen Action, which offers housing counseling

    From the Philly Business Journal:

    RealtyTrac: Pa., N.J. foreclosures up in March

    Foreclosure filings in Pennsylvania and New Jersey increased at a much higher rate than the national average in March, according to the March foreclosure report from RealtyTrac. But the overall filing rate is still lower in both states than the national average.

    In Pennsylvania, there were 5,664 foreclosure filings — one for every 970 homes — in March. That represents a 37 percent increase from February and a 15 percent increase from March 2009. Pennsylvania ranked 34th nationally in foreclosure filings for the month.

    In New Jersey, there were 5,998 foreclosure filings, or one for every 586 homes. That represents a 60 percent increase from February and 31 percent increase from March 2009. New Jersey ranked 22nd nationally.

    A.West: “This week somebody (via the IRS) took from me the equivalent of my first five years of professional income.”

    If you put it that way, …. I am sure the Google guys can top with the “I paid more money in taxes this year” than “my parents made in their entire lives (with decent wages too)”.

    Either you are making tonnes of money now, or p!ss poor income in first five years, or using a loose definition of what “professional income” starts (since you aren’t too old) — your baseline is over 200k in fed taxes?

    One can look at it as, “I made a gazillion this year”, or “I made half-a- gazillion**” after taxes, or “the IRS robbed me of half-a-gazillion” in taxes.

    ** 0.56 based on top marginal tax rates, unless you count property taxes, excise taxes, sales taxes, cigarette taxes, airport taxes, etc. (which Shore does) — and which are also conspicuously absent when talking about the “47%” people that pay “no taxes”!

    Under the proposed rules, banks that receive garnishment orders for their customers’ accounts would be required to review the accounts to determine whether they received deposits of federal benefits in the past 60 days, and in what amount.

    The goal is to give financial institutions clear rules concerning garnishment orders and a safe harbor against liability, a Treasury official said Wednesday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the subject.

    In the current situation, garnishment orders don’t always provide sufficient information for banks to know whether an order is subject to an exception allowing seizure of federal benefits, according to the background information on the proposal published in the Federal Register.

    The animal was killed in the centre of the pitch and the goals then painted with the animal’s blood. “We just can’t afford losing again at our stadium,” coach Stefan Grozdanov told 7 dni sport daily.

    Nom,

    if we are going there:

    Human Stew

    Step 1: Pre-cooking the Meat

    The first step to preparing the stew is to pre-cook the meat. Add to a 60 to 80 gallon fired clay or steel pot: water to fill around 3/5 full. Heat until lukewarm. Remove the clothes from: One 135 to 170 pound, 22 to 33 year-old human female “Long Pig”. Weight of the Long Pig should be in proper portion to height, nicely fleshed (plumpish but not fat).

    Place: Long Pig in lukewarm water.

    Add: wood to fire to increase heat.

    The slow rise in water temperature will relax Long Pig who will then become unconscious.

    Adjust: Water level to just cover breasts.

    Then Add:

    1 1/4 cup salt
    3/4 cup pepper
    1 cup fresh parsley
    10 crushed bay leaves
    1/4 cup cinnamon
    18 quartered onions
    3 crushed hands of garlic
    4 quartered lemons
    20-30 cloves (in a cheese cloth sack)

    Bring: Water to rolling boil

    Continue to Cook: Long pig for three hours at full boil

    Remove From Stock: Long Pig, lemons and cloves.

    Step 2: Finalizing the Stew

    Ensure that the stock is constantly stirred as mixture thickens, add more of less depending on desired thickness of the stew.

    Add to the Pot:

    12 pounds diced yams
    6 pounds plantains, peeled
    2 quarts coconut milk
    15 pounds local beans or peas (pre-cooked)
    8 pounds hearts of palm, diced
    2 gallons red wine (or locally brewed beer-like product)
    15 pounds breadfruit in 4″ to 6″ pieces.
    5 pounds spinach (or local leafy vegetable)
    3 cups hot pepper sauce
    salt, pepper and other spices to taste

    Bring: stew to a simmer and cook until yams and breadfruit are soft but not mushy.

    This recipe produces a delicious stew which is thick, spicy and full of flavor. it is best eaten with any of a variety of rough breads or flatbreads. Indian Nan bread will do in a pinch, and is far superior to pita bread for this purpose. A full-bodied, spicy red wine such as a Syrah makes a good accompaniment, or a good full-flavored microbrewed beer, such a a bock beer or a wheat based beer enhanced with fruit flavors will also make a great compliment to this stew.

    While the “published rates” may now be at their lowest, this does not accurately reflect the situation.

    In the past, we had high rates but none but the truely brain dead paid them. To offset the high rates, folks employed various tax shelters. Those rates no more resembled what people paid for an item than the price tag on a blanket in a Mexiacn tourist market.

    When RR was president, the tax code was reformed and, while tax rates plunged, the amount paid under the lower rates went up.

    Any argument that rests upon the top rates then vs. the top rates now is silly, as it fails to reflect the true picture.

    In other Montklair tax misery…

    Yesterday I my elderly next door neighbor stopped me as I was walking the dog and cried for about 30 minutes. Their taxes on their un-updated POS are now over $17,000 (and will be over 18k after the 2010 increase). Their 3rd floor boarder apartment has been vacant for a few months and their 2nd floor tenants just gave notice that they are leaving. She is afraid that they will lose their home.

    A few weeks ago, I gave her son all of the information he needed to file a tax appeal for his parents. Printed copies of the forms, and gave him the name of a reputable attorney as well as our appraiser and explained to him that his parents were getting screwed by the town and paying at least $4k too much per year in taxes. I explained that the appeal was pretty much a guaranteed win….everyone in our immediate neighborhood who has filed has gotten significant reductions.

    When I saw the neighbor yesterday I asked her if her son had filed the appeal, she told me that they hadn’t because she could not afford the $300 for the appraisal.

    Mind you they have 3 kids. One is a doctor, one is a lawyer and the other is a drug addict. I am guessing that the drug addict is the best of the lot.

    WASHINGTON — The Securities and Exchange Commission knew since 1997 that R. Allen Stanford likely was operating a Ponzi scheme and an agency enforcement official who helped quash investigations of his business later represented the billionaire, according to the SEC inspector general.

    The SEC didn’t bring charges against Stanford, alleging a $7 billion fraud, until February 2009. The SEC inspector general also says in a report released Friday that “institutional influence” in the enforcement division was a factor in the agency’s repeated decisions not to conduct a full investigation.

    Complex cases like Stanford’s that couldn’t be quickly resolved were discouraged by enforcement higher-ups, the IG’s report says.

    I’m down with corporate-style voting in America. The constitution contempated funding the givernment by exise taxes. Personal taxes — if any — were to be apportioned. Not just ‘one man, one vote’, but ‘one man, one tax dollar’. Boy has that ship sailed.

    So let’s make voting like a corporation. You have one share/vote for each tax dollar you pay to a given jurisdiction. It would encourage tax compliance for one thing.

    I know, the poll tax is unconstitutional, and this would function similarly. We’d have to get past ‘one man, one vote’ too. I’d like to try it however. Maybe on a municipal level.

The number of commercial property deals fell by 55 percent in 2009 after diving 62 percent the previous year.

    Given the good mileage of civic, there is probably no need to go for hybrid (not at least at 10k extra cost). Is the old one totaled? fixable? or does it just look like cr@p? My old Toyota is a chick repellent, but drives fine.

    I personally think it looks fixable. It was the labor hours taking out the engine that was the issue..so the auction value net the repair totalled it in MD.

This big fireman who looked like conan on steroids was holding a laptop open in one hand and a crowbar in the other that he swung against the door on the other car.

    Hyde, the working poor have skin in the game in terms of social security, medicare, etc. They are paying *now* with a hope of getting something thirty or forty years later. What they paid was looted by W in terms of tax cuts for the wealthy (“their money, so give them back their money”) and a wrong war (and not putting the tab on the budget).

    A lot of people pay no or low federal income taxes because they make very little (e.g. grad students, entry level soldiers, struggling artists in NY, doctors doing residencies). Many of them pay way way more back in taxes later on — some, including “middle eastern looking” immigrants, end up making so much money that they are tempted to become Republicans.

    Oh, well, money trumps in many cases. 7% of News Corp is now owned by a guy whose check wasn’t good enough for Rudy Guiliani after 9/11, and Fox keeps religion-baiting.

    And the common people have almost no say in what happens politically — especially in the face of propaganda machines. The critics of Iraq war were called traitors, and corporate-owned media just kept repeating “links between Saddam and 9/11” — with a shiny flag in the background.

    ACA Management, a “renowned” house, seats filled with Ivy League asses, known for its expertise in analyzing credit risk in RMBS, slaps AAA on a piece of sh#t. However, it gets better. They are led to believe that Paulson is long the crap and they decide to ride his coattails, yet smart enough that they know jack-sh#t regarding the structure of the trade. Little did they know that Paulson entered into CDS to short the crap. No different than an arsonist deciding to hire a lackey to torch a village, only after he secured insurance on the entire village.

    Lloyd does God’s work, Paulson designs an auto with defective brakes, while shorting the auto, and ACA decides to sleep with dogs. Lloyd does not give a sheet, he knows GS pulls DC strings. Paulson is not complicite, he did not market it. Unfortunately, ACA is the flea infested lap dog. Of course, along with the taxpayer.

My own personal experience is that we should pretty much live and let live because what one person observes as just — another person simply does not. People are going to do what they want to do. In the end, they always do. The most we can hope for is to distinguish a few things here and there that hopefully, allows them to make just a little better informed decision. Otherwise, great post.

By using Brita filters, which are now recyclable through a Brita and Preserve filter recycling program, you lower your impact on the environment while benefiting your own health and possibly your wallet, too. Plus, your support of the Brita Products Company goes toward help environmental efforts like the Brita Climate Ride, a five-day bike ride whose participants raise money for climate change awareness.

    The best way to tour New York City would be using a limousine service. You get a complimentary bar and the drivers are very friendly. Also, a limo service will typically let you get out of the stretch limousine at anytime to take pictures and just view the sight.

  400. Hi,great post,thanks for your share! and I wonder if i can this post in my website if I put a link back to yours? Waiting for your answer!

  401. I have fought with weight loss for a long time so I suggest you try to Eat 4 to 5 limited meals instead of three large meals. In order to moderate overeating. Exercise increases your metabolic process and burns off extra fat. Merely do some rudimentary exercise for 30 minutes a day – you’ll feel good and you’ll lose weight!

  402. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: New to Bingo players and exsiting players, check out this site: http://www.internet-bingo-reviews.co.uk great help with useful tips for the new members and also promotion signups for even the existing players.

  408. Since General Motors and Chrysler entered bankruptcy last spring, GM has stolen the lion’s share of the headlines. The General has made front page news with new products, a government loan payback and first quarter profits, while Team Pentastar has quietly gone about the business of returning to respectability. Chrysler took another step towards its goal this week as the company paid back another $1.9 billion in government loans to the federal government. In total, Chrysler has paid back $3.9 billion of the $14.3 billion in loans the company received.

  409. I adore your blog – super !

    I’m new here

  411. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
