28-a

I'd have to check dates, but I think current use laws pre-date the passage of Article 28-a. If so, that argument doesn't fly. My friends in the legislature are constantly on the look out for 28-a...

REIT's are required to pay out 90% of income in dividends. In a bull market, this leaves little extra for investing in new properties and organic growth, so the per share value may suffer. The...

Winnipesaukee Island Services

Did I miss the answers? The OP asked about which towns might have good opportunities, and we all went off about why we don't like real estate. : suspect, without doing my own research, that if you...

Unless you have enough land to hunt, snowmobile, or harvest, land is pretty boring. I think I'd rather see something that lets me have fun with my grandchildren. A collection of pinball machines,...

I'll second Osteria Poggio. The Cupola is a little extra work for staff, so plan to double tip.
