The Ins and Outs of Real Estate

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and that the warm glow of the holiday lit the world for all.

And if you happen to be selling your house, this might be a good time to think about what's up when you're not there.

Up in New Jersey, there's finally something they can't blame on Chris Christie.  These two real estate sales people who apparently were hot to get horizontal came up with a plan that was much cheaper than the closest Motel 6:  take a listing on a nice house, list it for far more than any fool would pay for it, and then, when no one comes around with bothersome notions of, you know, looking around the house and possibly buying it, do the hibbidy-dibbidy all over the place.

But of course, these two lovers were so desperate to do it that they failed to remember that everything is on video these days.  When the owner of the house saw people with flashlights (how romantic!) on the security feed, she alerted the police, who went to the house and - believe it or not - were lied to by the male agent.  Pulling up his pants and then his zipper, he said that he was there to prepare the house for an open house.

We now know two things for sure:  A) people will take any opportunity to mingle limbs, and 2) you can find a nice house for less than $650,000 in Wayne, NJ.
