Mortgage rate hikes driving would-be buyers into rental market If a hot housing market brought rents to boil, the cool-down should cause apartment prices to fall, right?Wrong.In June, the average Manhattan rent topped $5,000, a historical first, according to a report by appraisal firm Miller Samuel for Douglas Elliman. Meanwhile, the borough’s median rent, which reached a record $4,000 in May, edged up to $4,050 last month.Those gains came as surging mortgage rates caused home sales to dip. And where did many of those home hunters end up?The rental market.Rising rents, which have characterized this year’s market, have become increasingly tied to surging mortgage rates, according to Jonathan Miller, report author and CEO of appraisal firm Miller Samuel.“The spike in mortgage rates has im...

Last weekend I had back-to-back Feng Shui and Reiki healing sessions throughout New York City.During my lunch break, I decided to visit the historic South Street Seaport, located adjacent to the financial district in lower Manhattan. This was a wonderful visit as it was bustling with outdoor shoppers and dining, and even lounge chairs located at the end of the pier where you could just lay back to take in the views and pause for a moment. While exploring the South Steet Seaport I came across a free tour of the Wavertree 1885 ship. The tour provided some basic facts about the Wavertree ship and in all, this ship has been through a lot, shipping cargo all around the world in all kinds of weather. The fact that it's still standing is pretty impressive and the tour shared the entire ship is...

The dining room in Feng Shui takes on the energy of social gatherings, connecting with family, friends, and your community. Over the years, Americans have drastically reduced the use of formal dining rooms, except for the occasional holiday or birthday celebration. But since the Covid-19 pandemic has emerged, the return of using the dining room has increased, more so as an extra in-home office but hopefully to also be utilized once again for family and social gatherings. HOW CAN I ACCOMMODATE THE DINING ROOM TABLE FOR WORK AND LIFE USAGE?  The best recommendation is to make the transformation of the dining room into an in-home office space easy. This means beginning to inventory and/or looking for dining room furniture that provides storage options, so when work is done, you can easily ...

Rising rents, falling concessions and scant inventory are triple whammy Manhattan rents up $1,000 ahead of spring rental season in NYC Apartment hunting in New York? Brace for an insufferable spring.In the first quarter of 2022, the median Manhattan rent soared nearly $1,000 above last year’s level to a new high of $3,695, according to a StreetEasy report.In part, those jumps reflect the bottomed-out market at the beginning of 2021 when monthly rents fell to a decade-long low and an unprecedented 42 percent of Manhattan units included at least one month of free rent.Today, landlords are conceding little: Two-thirds of those concessions have disappeared. Just 13 percent of the Manhattan apartments are offering a break, the lowest share in six years, according to StreetEasy data.Meanwhile...

The Feng Shui principles evaluate energy through various observations that can be classified as Shen, Sha, or Suu Chi. For this particular post, we are referring to Sha chi - life-draining energy, and how to recognize it.One of the most common ways in how you can introduce yourself to recognizing Sha chi is by avoiding too many designs that have a sharp 90-degree angle, and/or leaving items out on display that can literally pinch, prick, or cut you. The image you see above is a picture of the Cholla (Choy-ya) Cactus. It’s common sense why you would not want to be near or touch these cactus spines.Looking to the interior of your home with how to recognize Sha chi, you could start by observing any protruding wall edge that faces toward your front door (or any doorway), your bed, and/or de...

Something people forget when updating the look of a home is buying new furniture is not the only option. Think about reupholstery. If the fabric pattern is a bit outdated or well-loved and well-used for many years, it may look a bit worse for wear. Buying new may seem more cost-effective than reupholstering because having every furniture piece reupholstered can be expensive. Most furniture on the market today is mass-produced. The construction and materials leave something to be desired regarding the quality.You can spend less on a piece of furniture from a mass-produced, large furniture store. In a few years, it will begin to fall apart and wither. You will need to replace it. Reupholstering sturdy, older furniture can save money in the long run.After reupholstering, there is no need f...

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and the celebrations will be subdued if at all.  During my career as head of HR for Brunschwig & Fils in New York I remember the celebrations fondly.Our law firm and accounting firm had partners who were members of the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick of New York.  Each year we were invited to the St. Patrick's Day gala Dinner, a packed house at The New York Sheridan.  They had a hospitality suite before the dinner and would have the New York Governor, New York City Mayor, US Senators, and other politicians.  We would shake hands with all of them.The dinner speakers were special too.  I remember Tim Russert gave a remarkable speech.  Then in 2003, Tom Brokow was scheduled.  He was delayed in the Studio covering President Bush announcing the war i...

 Kitchen cabinets are sometimes custom-built. When they start to show wear-and-tear, replacing them can be costly. Stock cabinets cost less, but the idea of cabinet replacement can be daunting. Refacing kitchen cabinets costs about half of what replacement costs. Do-it-yourselfers who desire to save money, have necessary carpentry skills, and some workshop space can do the cabinet refacing independently. The refacing of Euro-style cabinets involves covering the drawer and door faces and sides of the cabinets with wood or plastic veneer. Drawer and door fronts can also be repaired with rigid thermofoil (RTF).The refacing process of traditional frame-and-panel doors typically involves covering the cabinets' sides and frames with a veneer and replacing the drawer and door fronts with mater...
