Atlantic City Real Estate Market Ripe For A Comeback

From: HousingWire

During the recession, real estate in Atlantic City took a huge hit. Along with the sinking housing market, the casino industry also drove the city to the verge of collapse. Today, a mere decade later, casinos are still here. Two-thirds of the Atlantic City casinos are doing pretty well; restaurants, gaming and entertainment are all seeing a profit. Although the city has hit some bumps in the road, it’s always managed to claw back. That said, real estate investment is the key to rejuvenating the city.

The Atlantic City housing market has dropped in value over the last year. While the rate is better than it was a few years ago, it is still below the well the national average. The one consolation regarding the price drop is that the housing market if more affordable. With the median home price just above the national average, Atlantic City is a viable option for investment.

Omar Boraie, the high-powered New Brunswick, NJ real estate developer, says he’s happy with his experience in the real estate market. The 73-year-old of the Boraie Development LLC, just finished his latest project: a luxury high-rise on Somerset Street. Boraie says it’s always been his dream to rebuild areas of New Brunswick that was blotted with vacant lots and dilapidated buildings.

Many developers seem to be following in the steps of Boraie Development. Many see the potential of the area and the potential streams of income that real estate development can bring. Boraie says his next project is Albany Street Tower, a commercial and office building just a stone’s throw from his high rise.

City officials all agree that bringing in affordable housing will help stimulate the market. It is their goal to make the high foreclosure rate a thing of the past. Affordability will undoubtedly attract new buyers. Atlantic City has not even begun to unlock its true potential.

Garden State Real Estate Really Getting Better


The real estate business went through a major slowdown and then crash beginning around 2006, and though the feeling nationwide is that real estate values are now slowly recovering, a recent article in Realty Today notes that New Jersey is a notable exception to the real estate recovery. The good news, however, is that trends do indicate that a recovery is definitely on the way.

What’s bringing about this new hope for New Jersey, despite a foreclosure rate that is still above 8%? The story in Realty Today argues that the current financial realities of the marketplace, which feature low interest rates and low minimum down payment rates will help boost a recovery.The market will also be helped along by the new ease that social media provides in marketing available properties to the public, especially as prices and rates change. 

Another factor in the chance for an upswing is the changing demographics of home ownership. Though in the past homes were mostly sold only to couples, today more and more single people are stepping up to buy, and this trend is expected to continue. One other major factor is the Internet’s transformation of the real estate business. Now that brokers can be available anytime, anywhere, there is an even greater chance of deals being made.

Omar Boraie, of Boraie Development LLC, now predicts that New Jersey will benefit from the recent upswing in the development in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Boraie Development is the company behind a new 17-story luxury high-rise building called The Aspire. This glittering high-rise offers 2-bedroom apartments with luxurious appointments that will appeal to New Yorkers looking for quality real estate at comparably lower rents. Boraie noted that this new development has provoked interest from a cross section of renters who are interested in great design, all of which is a huge change in the market since 15 years ago, when the city was much more transient. It’s Boraie’s contention that this new energy in the city will help to energize New Jersey real estate over all.

You Only Live Once

“You only live once” is a phrase that many of us have heard from time to time, but last week Gunhild Swanson took living once to a new level. Ms. Swanson finished a 100 mile endurance race at 70 years of age. That is an amazing feat and gives me motivation and faith in my future, because if she can accomplish that, I can do anything I put my mind to as well as was recently reported on

This story should give all who read it ambition to go hard every day as if it were your last. Many people around the world are achieving difficult goals at advanced ages. As the age expectancy grows as well, it is possible to complete many things after becoming a retirement-age citizen. Skydiving, marathon running, rock climbing and scuba diving are just a few activities that can be enjoyed at any age. The number of years that a person has spent on this planet is not directly related to the number of things a person can do, and Gunhild Swanson proves that point.

Secondary School Coaches ill-prepared to Detect Concussions

Summertime typically involves on the field sports training to prepare for Fall, but is the coach sufficiently trained to detect concussions?

According to Claudio Loureiro, Athletes in contact sports like football are especially prone to head injuries, and if players are not adequately screened for concussions and removed from the field, a mild concussion can lead to various levels of brain damage.

Studies reveal many secondary school coaches are not adequately trained to detect a concussion.

Athletic trainer and lead author at Boston College, Meredith Madden conducted a survey of middle school and high school coaches.

“We found that many secondary school coaches typically have the knowledge about the signs and symptoms of a concussion, but when provided with scenarios about concussion situations that aren’t always typical, they tend to have a difficult time identifying the situation,” Madden said.

Laws regarding concussions and youth vary by state, but most require coaches to have training.

While the majority of coaches have basic knowledge on the symptoms of a concussion, the study revealeld about 10% have shortcomings, and lack awareness.

For those that have issues with their child should pay more attention to this new method on building a parent/child relationship. The Gentlemen Project, offered by entrepreneurs is a project that wants to improve and build on relationships by providing educational support.

39 entrepreneurs have set forth with the goal of strengthening all relationships between both fathers and children. This is offered to those that are busy at work yet still would like to find the time and be able to balance being a great dad.

Founder of this project, Chugg, started this company for the sake of his own children. He wanted to be able to actually spend time with his kids and be the dad he wanted to be. He started this initiative with a journal, writing down his finding as well as what he hopes to achieve.

This initiative went public after Chugg and his wife started doing research on kids with absent parents. The results were staggering. They found that there was a high percentage that a father would be absent or busy in the child’s life which is something that Chugg and his family wanted to change.

‘The Gentlemen Project’ Launched by Entrepreneurs in Support of Fathers and Families

During the third week of June, a group of 39 entrepreneurs got together in Park City, Utah with a common goal in mind: strengthening relationships between fathers and their children. With this in mind, Kirk Chugg, founder of Haberdasher Custom Clothing is working on starting a new charitable initiative entitled The Gentlemen Project.

Throughout his life, Chugg has strived to help children grow into young ladies and gentlemen instead of watching as they get lost playing video games and having very little to do with their parents. According to the New York Post, he knew that to make this work, he’d need as much dedication to this project as he’d shown his clothing business. Thus, he started The Gentleman Projects saying that it’s mission is to encourage “a more involved parent/child relationship by providing educational support for parents and children seeking deeper connections through authentic and meaningful habits.”

While the group initially began with ideas he wanted to achieve with his own children, the plans for character-building development are ones he hopes to instill in other children as well. These are all written in a leather journal that includes lessons, goals, ideas and dreams.

Here Are Certain Times When Your Father Will Give You “The Talk”

The sex talk is something that many parents dread giving to their children, and there’s a good reason why. Many parents want to believe their children are innocent, or they’s like their children to stay as innocent as possible, for as long as possible. The Sex Talk With Dad. Talking to our children about sex means that we’re having to admit that they’re growing up, and they may start having those adult feelings that no longer make them a child anymore.

There are several times in your life that your father may talk to you about sex, but the first time should be about the birds and the bees. After you get that sex talk, if you do certain things that catch their attention, then you may get the sex talk all over again. For instance, when you get sexual education in school, that will be a day when your father will speak to you about sex. It may be embarrassing to listen to him go into depth about what a female body does as well as the male body, but pay attention, because it’s important.

Another time that your father may give you the sex talk, and it can be very embarrassing, but it may be because he catches you watching an adult movie. The movie doesn’t have to be rated X, but if two people are engaged in sexual activity on screen, it’s very likely that your father will give you the talk about the birds and the bees again.

Thanks to Mikal Watts for showing me all of this.
