Spring Selling Season: Buyers vs Sellers
The beginning of the Spring Real Estate Market is in Full Bloom, as it ignites a frenzy of buying and selling across the nation. As the busiest time of the year, the spring selling season generates an onslaught of activity that can be mutually beneficial for homebuyers and sellers alike, offering unique perks for each standpoint. We examine what the season means to buyers and sellers and provide potential recommendation for each viewpoint.
What Homebuyers Need to Know:
With spring officially underway, the first thing homebuyers need to understand is that inventory levels are low. In fact, the biggest challenge buyers in many markets will face is actually finding a home to buy.

Depending on the terms of the agreement, the seller may have the right to evict a tenant, keep the money that was put toward the purchase and then rent the home out to a different tenant. Here's what to know if you're considering a rent-to-own agreement.

VIEW PHOTO IN GALLERY
Every year as the clock nears midnight on December 31, anticipation runs high as the world holds its breath waiting for the sparkling New Year’s Eve Ball to descend from its flagpole at One Times Square. We all know that the countdown starts at 10, but there are a handful of other fun facts about the most sought after tradition. Here's a few:
New Year’s Eve Times Square, New York, 1937
109. The number of times the ball has dropped. The ball has been lowered every since 1907, except for 1942 and 1943, when the ceremony was suspended due to the WWII “dimout” lighting restrictions in New York City. Although there was a little less sparkle those two years, crowds still gathered to ring in the new year while also offering a moment of silence to the fallen.
11,875 pounds. What the ball weighs today. A pretty staggering difference from first 700 ...
