Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

More gossip

As long as we're gossipping: I might as well mention that the Porco house in Delmar is up for sale. As WRGB reports, the law does not require you disclose an ax-murder in your realty listing:
The listing makes no mention of the events that happened there last November and instead refers to its impeccably remodeled amenities, over 2-thousand square feet of living space, four bedrooms and two and a half baths.

Brokers do not have to reveal in a listing a property's history, but they must be forthcoming if a potential buyer wants background.
Also, it appears that the house will be going for more money than it is otherwise worth:
A local Realtor said the 325 thousand dollar price tag is fifty thousand dollars too high for that neighborhood. Caputo said a home involved in a murder would be more acceptable to buyers than a home caught in the middle of a divorce squabble, for example.
I'm not sure I understand that logic, but hey, these people are the professionals.

I don't know if the above commenter is joking around, but yes, there was a high-profile murder there and a resulting still-open investigation. Google "Porco murder" to find out everything you need to know.
