From Business Today:
The local housing market is getting back to its own normal. After a year of fluctuations caused by a federal stimulus credit, local numbers are beginning to reflect the true nature of the housing market, rather than artificial highs and lows. Home sales in Western New York were up 22 percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Buffalo Niagara Association of Realtors. For the year, closed sales are down 9 percent so far, and down 12 percent from 2009.
The foreclosure factory law firm that turned heads recently for mocking the homeless appeared in court Monday, against New York State attorneys and a delinquent homeowner facing foreclosure. Steven J. Baum PC says a state law that requires lawyers to attest to what they sign is unconstitutional and is asking to have it overturned.
World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara's annual meeting and reception will feature Tom McManus, CEO of KegWorks. The Kenmore-based online retailer of draft beer equipment will talk about why small businesses should consider getting into the export business. McManus will also talk about "in-sourcing" more work to Buffalo Niagara in order to boost local small business and better control quality.
