How The Whitehouse Has Evolved Since The 1800s

Jan 18 2017


The Whitehouse, the official residence of every American president since the 1800s was originally referred to as the Presidential Palace or Mansion. Theodore Roosevelt would change all that by referring to the historic building as the Whitehouse. To this day, the name has stuck since 1901.

Visiting A Haunted Ghost Town


If you're looking to spend this Halloween in a haunted ghost town, you might want to visit Johnsonville, Connecticut. This deserted mill town, founded in 1802, was once a thriving community, until it was mysteriously struck by lightning in 1972, causing a massive fire. The town was then deserted until Raymond Schmitt, an aerospace manufacturer, purchased the property with the intention of restoring it. Unfortunately, Schmitt died in 1998 and the town has since fallen into disrepair when it was abandoned again.

News On The Clintons Chappaqua Home

Bill and Hillary Clinton has recently purchased the home next door to the farmhouse they own in upstate New York. The property is separated by a tall white fence, and the Clintons have reportedly paid 1.16 million for the house. They've effectively created a compound that recalls the Kennedy era.

The newly purchased property measures 3,631 feet, has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and has plenty of room for when the rest of the Clinton family visits. The house sits on the same 1.5 acres that they purchased shortly after the end of Bill Clinton's presidency.

Watch Out For Lease Hidden Fees

May 25 2016

Lease Hidden Fees

The truth is, nearly all financial agreements contain fees that may or may not apply to the situation, but lease hidden fees in rental agreements can be an unwelcome surprise when the renter plans for one rental amount and gets charged with more.

The extra costs are put there to enhance the profits of companies. Some examples include baggage fees at airlines, smaller amounts of food in large packages, and charges for "extras" in accommodations. Those who rent out housing make their own extra money as well.

Many renters hear about the original rental fee and are happy to find that it is a good price for the housing they rent, but too often, there are extra charges for pets, maintenance, parking, and use of special amenities for which they may not be aware.

The rising number of renters has made the market competitive. Renters are looking for the best deal and landlords are looking for the best profits.
