Things that matter

By Bradley Koltz

My father is dying. He's been fighting cancer for a while now and it looks like the fight is just about over. That's incredibly hard to write, but it is true just the same.

I hope you’ll indulge me in a brief tribute to my Dad while he's still with us, and I hope Dad will forgive the breaking of convention while I tell him and you how much he means to me.

Dad has always been a bigger than life character, doing incredible things that seem like they're from a bygone era, when adventurers and explorers opened new places or sought new opportunities.

Dad survived any number of things that would have bested much better men than me. Hurricanes at sea, ferocious ice storms, mutinous crews, armed thugs, dishonest business associates and crooked politicians to name but a few.

Are You Ready To Purchase a Home?

This May Be the Right Time for You

As I review the trends in the local real estate market I see a shift occurring from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market in the The Greater Princeton Area. So as a buyer what does this mean to you? A shift to a seller’s market means that you will have more qualified buyers competing to purchase the same home since a seller’s market is usually accompanied by low inventory. The TREND Multiple Listing System reports that in Mercer County in the month of May the number of homes available to purchase was 1984 compared to 1901 in May of 2014. This may not seem significant to you but this small percentage change has made an impact in the number of homes available for you to purchase in Princeton and the surrounding area. I frequently hear in the office real estate agents asking other agents if they have a new home coming on the market in a specific price range in a designated area for the buyer they are currently working with. The agent and their buyer have exhausted their search of the few homes that are currently available and are anxious to see any new inventory as soon as possible. I myself have several customers that are experiencing firsthand the shortage of available homes to purchase. For you as a buyer this shortage of inventory means that you must be working with a real estate agent that knows your needs, have a letter of pre-qualification by a mortgage representative, have your funds available, and chosen your real estate attorney so you will be able to go immediately from fully executed contract to attorney review.

Coping with teen stress

An economic crisis such as our current recession can wreak havoc on overall health and family stability. Job loss, including loss of health insurance, home foreclosure, changes in lifestyle, inability to maintain memberships in clubs and social organizations, inability to continue private school tuitions, etc create stress in adults – to a greater or lesser degree, depending on how severe the financial strain. Research shows that large scale economic distress manifests itself increased substance use and abuse, depression, insomnia and eating disorders. As stress continues over time and the economy remains unpredictable, people experience more stress and make poorer decisions about their health.

Teenagers too, experience the effect of an unstable and unpredictable economic climate. In some cases, the affect of the economic challenge is obvious to them such as having a parent who has recently become unemployed now home every day, to seeing parents struggling to pay bills or make decisions about doing repairs in the home, as well as parents bemoaning their financial distress on a regular basis to the entire family.
