Tenant Placement

I am interested to see how this plays out.

I just read a very interesting article through yahoo news. The article comes from, “The Atlantic Wire” and it had a really interesting story about what will be the new tallest building in the world. Here is the article for your enjoyment.

 

How to Build the World’s tallest Skyscraper in 90 Days

 

The closing remarks really fascinated me. “In theory, if a grocery store moves into one the retail spaces, you could be born in Sky City and never have to leave.” Can you imagine living your whole life in one building? I am also curious to see how they will act regarding their carbon foot print? Will they have renewable energy sources anywhere? Will they go with the best energy and use Geothermal, as well as supplement it with some wind or solar?

 

What will they think of next…?

You call that SNOW!? I am already thinking Spring.

So mother nature brought a little bit of snow our way, and when I say, “a little bit”, I really mean it. The flurries we saw barely made a presence on the ground, and even less of it made it passed lunch time. I am not worried though because I am already thinking Spring. I have already pulled out the Softball glove and have been gearing up for Adult softball, and been checking up on my beloved Red Sox.

 

This past week has been warm enough that I even started to put some mulch down on my property in North Amherst. The tenants told me it looks great and I didn’t even ask for their opinion. I certainly do enjoy making them happy. I was even able to finish up the chainsaw work that I missed. Some people don’t realize if you leave broken limbs the way they are, you leave the tree exposed to bugs and disease to have an easy entry to potentially harm the entire tree. By cutting the broken limbs off and all the way back you can ad life to the tree, and you can potentially see some new sprouts grow in.

 

Mulching plus some fertilizer is good too. This provides a good amount of nitrogen to the soil enabling the bushes, plants or trees the opportunity for additional nurishment to grow healthy after a rough New England winter.

 

Finally, on another note, I have posted a few more properties in the Amherst Area for people to take a look at. I am hoping to have these rented by the end of March so I can focus my energy on maintenance. Since making properties look better is what I enjoy doing most, and Spring Clean-up should be pretty interesting this year.

Winter time.

This has been quite the experience with La Nina and her effects. WHERE IS THE SNOW!!! I don’t mind too much because I am a summer guy anyway, but I always tell people that I enjoy the summer that much more because I have to tolerate the winters in New England. In the mean time I have been filling up rooms and I am actually going to start to list properties for June 1st. By getting started with the rentals 5-6 months in advance, it will allow me the ability to focus my energy on other things when the weather allows it. Things like:

I also like to take on other projects like staining, painting, or maintaining a property.

Either way, this winter has been peaceful and I can’t wait for it to leave so I can get out there and get my hands dirty again!

Looking for an individual room/apartment

Crossman Properties now has rooms/apartment available. Three rooms in two seperate addresses have become available and they are certainly worth checking out.

Two rooms at 5 Eames Place in Amherst just became available and this is an ideal spot for a Graduate student and or working adult. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood that is walking distance from town and bus stops. It is also in a neighborhood that does not have a lot of traffic. It is peaceful and serene and has room to garden when the weather gets nicer.

Another location close to the heart of town is 71 South Prospect Street. This apartment is walking distance to dining, shopping, and transportation. There is room to park in case you have a car, but there is no need to worry because it is so close to everything. On a one-way street that connects Amity Street to Northampton Road, this apartment is great because of its location.

If you are looking for a place, call now to book an appointment because these will not last long.

 

 

Wow, what a last few weeks it has been!

Crunch time! September is just around the corner, and owners have been scurrying to get things done in time for the arrival of the students. This means that I have been getting phone calls at all hours of the day, and working from sun up to sun down! For those of you who know me best, you know that this is the way it has always been for me. I am just surprised how quickly it took to get to this point. I do realize that after September 1st comes and goes that things will slow down again, but man, what a ride it has been. I have been doing chainsaw work, landscaping, tenant screening, apartment showing, painting, and launching this new website. One of my assignments this week called for me to drive all the way out to Harwichport, in the cape, and prepare a home for sale. Hopefully everything goes smooth for the homeowners because I think it is a great house only 200 yards from the water.  Some days have been 10 hours, while other days are 13-15 hours, and I love every minute of it! I have been able to hit my monthly quota’s already and now I think it might be time to raise the bar a little bit. We shall see…
