Spring Cleaning

I am being hopeful of course! With the ‘hot’ weather outside (it is 40 degrees F in boston as opposed to the 0-20 degree weather we’ve had recently), I may go running tomorrow. Think I’ll do some stairs with one of my friends who is just as eager to get into great shape. I hate running actually – but stairs are ok – I feel more “Rocky Balboa” after doing stairs. I hate cold weather too – but 40 is ok I suppose…

Today I am cleaning out my office but soon will head over to my mother’s house for some gnocchi – actually I am getting very hungry just writing that and would prefer to finish this post soon so i can get out of here! Our assistant at the office likes to sit out back for some reason, and not out front where you would think an assistant should be in order to greet visitors for example? But not here…so we are moving all of her working items to the front so she has to go out there. I don’t know about you, but the FEDEX guy sneaks in to the office and then scares the poop out of me because I have no idea he’s in my office – does this happen to you? Ok enough on that…

Apparently, tourists are avoiding Mexican beaches due to the crime – so if you plan to head there for vacation, read this article:

Just my attempt at a PSA. By the way, I will be heading to Florida soon to visit clients and friends. It has been a year since I visited Fort Myers and I’m curious what’s going on down there with real estate. This time I may make a visit to Marco Island – a real estate agent there told me that 7% of houses and 11% of condos are up for sale as of this past summer. WOW – those are huge inventory levels – HUGE. You can name your price down there, and apparently, Europeans with strong currency, hedge fund managers, and private investors are doing just that. Here is an article about a Moody’s report on SW FL real estate:

At some point, Florida could be a bargain again. It is still a beautiful place and a heck of a lot warmer than here. Ok time for gnochhi…
