Year built 2006

Square feet 1,206

Bedrooms 2

Baths 2 full

Water/sewer Public

Condo fee $95 a month

Taxes $4,618 (2020)

Top 5 ROE Stocks as Presidential Election Count Continues

The U.S. equity markets surged in the past few trading sessions on optimism surrounding the Presidential elections. Despite broad-based expectations of a resolution of the uncertainty clouding the battle for White House supremacy, the markets have largely factored in near-term volatility as major policy matters related to taxes, government spending, trade and regulation could get modified.
