This might work, I suppose

City on a hill and next to the Thruway

32 Meyer Place in Riverside appears on the hot sheet today, newly listed at $1.799 million. The owners paid $1.650 for it in 2010 (from an asking price of $1.949 million) and the owners before that bought it in a bidding war in 2007 for $1,807,500. Riverside prices seem to be recovering from their 2010 levels but Meyer Place may not be the focus of that improvement.

On the other hand, it’s not what you paid for a house that determines its current market value, it’s what your competition is asking, right now. Up or down, you’ve got to offer at least as much house and, were I doing the pricing, a bit more. This one is a very nice house, as I remember it, so highway noise or not (and it’s tolerable here), this could be competitive.

    Air brakes make such an attractive setting for enjoying the backyard.

    Is this the place formerly owned by that real estate attorney you are so fond of?

    Dude –
    What we are witnessing is the dumbing down of America. Barry realized the 99% will never step it up, and it is much easier to just redistribute the wealth. Forget what made this county great. Forget individual liberty. Just tax those who have succeeded, and give it to those who don’t want to work. PENALIZE SUCCESS!! Yea, that sounds like a smart plan.
    He did away with our space program. Which created more innovations than any other federal program. They invented TANG for Pete’s sake!! Not poon tang, you pervert, but still pretty good.
    He wants to cut 80% of our nukes. He wants to lower the whole profile or our country, and make us less dominant. Why? Because he is a frigging Commie community organizer who was taught by Bill Ayer’s and Bernardine Dohrn. GOOGLE IT!! But Bernardine was a hottie in her day. So I bet she was into mad monkey sex, and passionate, so she had something going for her.
    Anyways, this guy is a disaster. Speak up, Francis. He is crippling this country. People are hurting, and his wookie wife has taken 17 vacations, costing us $58 million dollars, while people starve. Who can defend that? It is criminal.
    I have a lot more to say on this, but I have like 20 guys in black suits, white shirts and skinny black ties banging on my door.
    Back in a bit!!
    Your Pal,

    Barry will win the election in the Fall. LIke it or not, the Republican field is pathetic and disorganized. I’d love to hoop it up with Barry and show him my J and take him down low. Yea.

    Cos Cobber,

    I am in the $2-2.5mm range, but I can’t seem to find “home.” There’s just a lack of good inventory.

    Walt-
    I am a prouk Kenyan Muslim Socialist. On the morning call, the Politboro put out a demand for more revenue from my sector, to fund an additional order of black helicopters from Venezuela. They also asked for a decent sized holding pen for non-compliant Republicans. I selected the Griff golf course, because it has a bar where I can chill out after a long day of stripping the success from those unfortunate enough to have enjoyed an all-time high on the stock market. We begged our leader to deny those capitalist pigs their dirty money, but he knows better. And no, Obama did not destroy the space program, he outsourced it to Newt. The space colony is not just a wild idea to you, if we have our way, after appropriating all your money and power, you will be proud to call it home.
