Redfin found that on average, homes listed on Thursday sold for an average of $3,015 more than homes listed on Monday, and sell faster, too.Home listed on Thursday can sell an average of 5 days faster than homes listed on Sunday. According to Redfin, Thursday is such a good day to sell due to weekend sales. The report notes that with most buyers shopping for homes on the weekends, Thursday listing will still be fresh in their mind into the weekend.“Psychologists have found that people tend to remember the last information they saw the best,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “If you list on a Thursday, buyers will be more likely to see your listing as a ‘new home for you‘ right before they go out and tour over the weekend.”If you list on Friday, it may be too late for a buyer to see your home online, and earlier in the week, new listings may push those out of the way as the weekend shoppers start looking. For a home listed at $500,000, listing on a Thursday instead of Monday could mean a difference of $3,700 in your final sale price.In this spring’s hot buyer’s market, however, the day of the week a home is listed has mattered less than normal.“When homebuyer demand far outpaces the supply of homes and nearly every home sells quickly and at or above list price, factors like which day a home is listed are less important,” Redinf noted. According to Redfin, the market this year is not as easy for sellers, with the median time on market has shot up to 59 days as of February.Find the report from Redfin here.

Marshall “Mike” Smith, Ed.M. ’63, Ed.D. ’73, was awarded yesterday the first Harvard Graduate School of Education Medal for Education Impact for making a lasting difference in the field of education and on the lives of learners across the nation and beyond. Smith received the honor at the celebration of the new Ed.L.D. Program.“In recognizing Mike, we honor an exemplary researcher, policymaker, and philanthropist whose leadership has truly transformed the education sector through his four decades of service to the field,” Dean Kathleen McCartney said, calling Smith the ideal inaugural recipient of the award. “We hope the work of tonight’s medal recipient will inspire our first cohort of Ed.L.D. students, as well as Ed School students for years to come.”Upon receiving the award, Smith acknowledged that he could not have accomplished everything without the help of others, particularly his wife, Nicki, also an educator, whom he met at the Ed School as a student. “The message is you cannot grow alone. You have to be working with other people all the time whether spouses or other people important to you,” he said, noting the Ed.L.D. cohort are starting with powerful connections and encouraging them to “rise up and help each other.”The Medal for Education Impact will honor practitioners, policymakers, and researchers who work across their individual spheres of influence and whose careers are dedicated to education opportunity, achievement, and success for all children. It recognizes those who have a transformative effect on the sector through their entrepreneurial spirit, innovative strategies, collaborative work, and superior leadership. Read Full Story
Developer Rawcorp will build a nine-level apartment building at Robina golf course, The Glades.SEVENTY-SIX new apartments are set to be built at Robina golf course, The Glades.Developer Rawcorp will build a nine-level building on a 2865sq m site on Glades Drive featuring a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.There will also be 130 car parks, a roof terrace and communal open space.The development, yet to be named, will be one of the city’s only new residential medium-rise apartment projects to be built on a golf course. Designed by AGA Architects, the apartments will offer both residential use and long-term accommodation, with large internal floor areas and balconies overlooking the water and fairways.Rawcorp special projects manager Dan Rogers said the apartments would offer a rare lifestyle opportunity priced in the mid $300,000s through to the mid $500,000s.“The location is unbeatable,” he said.“You’re a nine iron from the golf course in one of the most picturesque residential communities on the Gold Coast.

Eagle Terraces, also designed by AGA architects, is a collection of nine terrace homes.Marketing Projects managing director Kyia Maidens, who is marketing Eagle Terraces, said demand for Robina property was underpinned by the suburb’s established major infrastructure. “Robina is currently experiencing high rental demand and a vacancy rate of less than one per cent, and with significant population growth projected over the coming years, this trend is likely to continue,” she said. “Rawcorp’s latest apartment project at The Glades has been designed with this in mind and it is being released at the right time to capitalise on the city’s future growth.” The Glades is within walking distance to Robina Town Centre and the Robina railway station.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is still hopeful of making a major signing to boost their push for Champions League qualification. A resounding 4-0 victory over Everton in the 222nd Merseyside derby at Anfield courtesy of two goals from Daniel Sturridge – who missed a penalty to complete his hat-trick – and strikes from Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez provided a welcome shot in the arm to their top-four hopes. And despite being frustrated so far in his attempts to bolster his injury-hit fourth-placed squad the Reds boss believes there is still time to make a significant signing before the window closes on Friday. Everton boss Roberto Martinez was left to worry over the fitness of striker Romelu Lukaku who injured ankle ligaments in a collision with Gareth Barry. “He has his ankle in a cast,” said Martinez. “We will assess it but it doesn’t look too good at the moment.” Merseyside Police announced after the game it was looking into reports missiles had been thrown from the crowd. Television showed Liverpool striker Luis Suarez collecting some objects as he prepared to take a corner early in the match at Anfield. Press Association Sport understands around a dozen coins were thrown from the Anfield Road End – part of which houses visiting supporters – during the first half. A police statement read: “Officers are requesting CCTV from the stadium and will review any footage as part of inquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incidents.” “I think we will hopefully do something over the next couple of days,” he said. “I saw some headlines after yesterday’s press conference in terms of the manager being angry with the club – nothing is further from the truth. “We are not just going to get the players we want to get in for a number of reasons. “Hopefully we can have a major signing before the window shuts and if we can do that we will be set up for the remaining games.” Rodgers felt the performance against their near neighbours was just what was needed to reinvigorate their top-four challenge. “I think all wins are important but especially against your rivals and psychologically it was a big win and can re-iterate the confidence and belief in the squad,” said Rodgers. “We have to keep our foot to the floor and keep these performances and keep scoring goals. “This was a massive game. I think we have shown all season we are going to be in contention for fourth place.” Press Association
The U.S. Supreme Court declined Tuesday to review the case of San Quentin death row inmate Stanley “Tookie” Williams, a founder of the Crips gang in Los Angeles who has authored children’s books, renounced his gang past and even been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The decision now likely leaves Williams’ fate in the hands of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is expected to soon begin the clemency review process. Supporters have already been circulating petitions to the governor to save Williams, who was convicted of four counts of murder stemming from two attacks in 1979. Schwarzenegger has only reviewed two death-penalty cases since taking office and did not grant clemency to either inmate. Ten years later, he was sentenced to death for shooting a Whittier 7-Eleven employee, Albert Lewis Owens. He also was convicted of the shotgun murders of a Chinese couple that owned a South Vermont Avenue motel, along with their daughter, who died during a robbery less than two weeks after Owens’ murder.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

His attorneys argued that the prosecutor had engaged in racial discrimination by seeking to keep blacks off the jury. In February, a federal appeals court panel cleared the way for Williams’ execution, with a majority of the judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voting against re-hearing his appeal. Williams was 16 when he and a high school friend, Raymond Washington, began the Crips street gang in South Los Angeles in 1971.
