Massachusetts has Many Millionaires

November 17th, 2011

In a recent article I read about the US states with the most millionaires I see the east coast hits again and am very excited that it includes Massachusetts. To be included in the millionaire household you had to have “$1 million or more in investigable or liquid assets”. Pretty impressive to learn that just over 5% of the US households can claim the status of being a millionaire.

Now when looking at the breakdown of the states included, one of my favorites, Massachusetts hit right in the middle. The number of millionaires here has been on the rise for a few years and I don’t see that changing much.

Get your Watertown homes picked out and live near the Massachusetts millionaires. Watertown real estate is on the rise, and has much to offer. There are many things to do for all ages near and far which make this small town so wonderful and sought out by so many.

Today is November 11, 2011; is there something special about it? Maybe to some people due to birthdays, anniversaries, buying a new home for sale, or getting married but this year (2011) there are many special things about today.

Today is special to many for Veteran’s Day celebrations & announcements, Nigel Tufnel Day, and for those who love corduroys…

Celebrations around the USA will happen today, many stores will give extra discounts for this day to show appreciation for those who have, are and will serve. Some restaurants will thank the service men and woman with a free meal or appetizer, people find many ways to give thanks for a Happy Veteran’s Day.

Spinal Tap Fans started a movement to make 11/11/11 Nigel Tufnel Day. People are blasting music in honor of the music.

The National Corduroy Day is also celebrated today as the straight lines in the date are the closest date you will get to looking like corduroy. For those who are partial to the material they will wear it, buy it, etc.

Making your own history today can be easy. Pick something you want to remember forever and make it happen today. Wakefield homes have been a very popular search today being on the east coast makes for beautiful weather, colors and plenty to do. Wakefield real estate is not only beautiful & popular but is a big hit in Massachusetts real estate trends.

Extreme Weather

November 8th, 2011

There are many scientists believe more intense storms will happen due to global warming. Many areas across the states are being hit with different levels of different storms. Some may believe things have become out of control, but how many years ago were we not all reading about it online vs. only reading our local classifieds?

The weather will continue to change. The coastal lines will continue to see the hurricanes and other seasonal storms. Inland states will see additional tornadoes, earthquakes and blizzards and other storms will happen. It is up to you as to how you handle this. 15 years ago, we were not seeing things in our local news about all the other states? Now you can go to any search engine that has weather, news, etc on it and see what is going on anywhere in the world. Add up all the locations and of course you are going to think the worst.

However, many areas may seem to have it bad as far as weather and storms go, but the real estate market continues and the housing population continues to grow. Choosing where you want to live, is easier due to the internet & finding a home in an area of interest becomes a very quick search on a website to find the optimal choice by your personality.

Recently Cambridge homes saw some significant snow but the Boston real estate didn’t stop. Perception is key to making it thru our extreme weather conditions and being resourceful is helpful and a bonus to striving in today’s times.

The Massachusetts State of Emergency

November 1st, 2011

On October 29th, 2011 the Governor of Massachusetts declared a state of emergency due to the power outages caused by the early winter storm. The heavy wet snow and wind conditions caused most of the Commonwealth areas power outages.

Businesses have had to close down, roads were closed, and emergency shelters were set up. (MEMA) Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency is the state agency that handles and coordinates the local, state and federal help as well as the volunteer resources when disasters strike the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

This Nor’ Easter storm has halted many on the east coast causing several top schools to close across the state including but not limited to Franklin, Worcester, Middlesex, Norfolk counties. Nearly 1 million people were without power. Halloween trick or treating has been forced to be postponed; traveling is at a stand still in many areas as well. Many people on the east coast are still regrouping from Irene, the storm that hit just a few months ago.

While help is being sent in from other states and areas, the outlook is grey when you’re inside the disaster areas. It will be better as the week progresses. For some who are within the Winchester real estate market, moving right now will be quite challenging. Shopping indoors is still available if you have access to the internet and you can find many desired necessities such as Winchester homes, local classifieds and much more with the real estate software powered by
