Listing Book is one of the most informative public-facing versions of the MLS that I’ve seen to date. It allows the public to search for listings the way an agent does. One of the most frustrating issues with public facing “Home Search” sites is that these sites are often hopelessly outdated. They also don’t distinguish between listings that are active or under contract. Listing Book shows you which listings are available and what has actually sold and gone into contract. This allows the buyer to gauge the market far more accurately then they can using the more “traditional” home search sites that dominate the internet.

The Cities of Westchester NY:
Westchester county is far more than a “bedroom community” for New York City commuters. Satellite cities are destinations unto themselves for fine dining, shopping and entertainment. Westchester may not be Manhattan – but no one can say that there is nothing to do here. White Plains alone hosts nearly 300,000 commuters during the work day. The Westchester Philharmonic is now under the baton of Itzhak Perlman, several theaters now call Westchester home. And if that’s not enough, midtown Manhattan is a mere 30 minutes away.
Life in the downtown of White Plains, New Rochelle and Yonkers can be full of hustle and bustle and vibrancy. Shopping is plentiful, fine dining is everywhere. Housing choices in downtown areas run the gamut from high-rise luxury complexes such as Trump Plaza in New Rochelle and the Ritz Carlton in White Plains to garden-style cooperatives built in the pre-war era. New Rochelle and Yonkers even boast genuine loft space in converted factories and schools. So there are plenty of housing to choose from.
White Plains is the most “established city” in the area. The downtown was developed over the previous ten years and has become a vibrant center for business and residential life. New Rochelle has also been undergoing major changes. Although New Roc City dominates the downtown area, New Rochelle was able to retain some of its older buildings creating an eclectic mix that reflects the French influence that has ever been present. Yonkers is a city in transition. Some areas have been completely redeveloped but restoration is on-going.
