After a couple of quiet weeks (boy it was nice), the Manhattan real estate market is picking up where it left off at the end of March. It is indeed heating up again as it almost always does going into tax season. So today, I’m out and about "making rain" so enjoy the following links:
- Speaking of tax season, The Consumerist has a great post: CPA Answers Blog Readers’ Tax Questions. And if that’s not enough, check out their Tax Tip Roundup today.
- From David Leonhardt of The New York Times: A Word of Advice During a Housing Slump: Rent that includes this interesting buy vs. rent graphing tool that some of my readers have suggested is difficult to interpret. And after that you should check out Jonathan Miller’s take on it at Matrix.
- Calculated Risk enlightens us to a proposed Foreclosure Moratorium in NJ for sub prime foreclosures.
- And an FYI…Filing Bankruptcy Isn’t Helping Homeowners Avoid Foreclosure…from Lingling Wei of TheRealEstateJournal.com
- The NY Sun reports on Colossal Plans for Hudson Yards. Good grief just do something with all of that space already! I’m so sick of listening to what’s going to happen! make it happen already!
- I’m petrified of tipping you off to the next post given the hoopla surrounding the Imus scandal, but here goes: Minorities are the emerging face of the sub prime crisis from Carol Lloyd of SFGate.com. Am I allowed to say "minorities?" For those who can’t tell…I’m kidding and I’m not going into my thoughts or opinions on this latest media witch-hunt and fiasco.
And that’s about all I’ve got for you today. Pleasant reading and see you Monday. Great weekend!
