Rochester's Affordable Housing!

Big front page news today about Rochester area rating as a great place to live (link: in part because of its affordable housing.

Just for fun, I took a peek in the multiple listing service at Rochester's unaffordable housing. I was surprised to see there were 29 homes for sale for more than a million dollars. The number one most expensive house on the market is the Golisano mansion in Victor for a measly $4,250,000. The house has ten bedroom, 7 full baths and more than 13,000 sq feet of living space. Taxes are estimated at $78,000 per year!

Where's The Time Gone

Gee, I'm exhausted and couldn't figure out why. Then I looked over my calendar to try to figure out where the week went and realized I had two engineer inspections, negotiated a sale, did three listing presentations (one of which resulted in a signed contract...see details below) started working with a new buyer and showed them six properties and showed a couple of current clients a few properties. Oh yea, I also changed real estate offices. Effective Monday, April 9, I joined the office of Re/Max First located on Allens Creek Road in Rochester which means I transfered my current lisings, ordered new business cards, updated my web site, developed ads and direct mail pieces to tell the world, etc. All in one week. Wow!

Adorable new listing. 90 Indiana Street in the city of Rochester. I think it will sell quick. Watch the MLS for details.
