Wall Street is making the early part of the year for real estate, like the good old days…

One of my favorites was 115 Old Church Road. Although it is an antique – which so many are shying from, this one has been updated, with cat 5/6, great insulation, new roof and meticulously maintained – you can’t beat the location…close to town, and kids can actually walk to school – 6 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths and fabulous extra rooms like a ballet studio, homework/computer room, kitchen for a clan – it’s great.

IN CONTRACT
Beautiful Round Hill property on 4 flat acres – it had been on the market for nearly twice the current list @ $13.9 – foreclosed and acquired by PinPat in 2009 – the current LLC bought it 2010 for $3M and finished it…looks like a win/win – at least for the current buyer and seller.

Still not much going on in the market….slow start – and still in Aspen. My day yesterday, trying to fly back home – eager to see my husband and kitty + get going again with business…
Plane crash at the Aspen Airport put a stop to that plan and I saw the whole thing through the portal of the plane that I was on. The plane hit, then rolled, then it turned into a huge ball of fire – then a big black cloud – until firetrucks hosed it down. It was eery to see.
It’s a miracle that anyone survived…There were only 3 on board, a pilot, a co-pilot and another co-pilot flying as a passenger. Apparently the cabin was insulated from fire and smoke – so the co-pilots survived, but the pilot died from blunt trauma.

It was extremely windy, although some speculate that if it had been a different aircraft, other than the 1994 Challenger, they may have stood a better chance dealing with crosswinds – who knows? Not to mention pilot error and judgement…

The pilot of the twin-engine jet earlier reported high winds during a previous attempt to land, according to a recording of the air traffic control radio transmission.
