Welcome to the Westchester View and thank you for stopping by.
My name is Ruthmarie, and I have been an active real estate agent for over 10 years. This site is run with an eye to giving my readers as much useful information about the Westchester market as I can generate.
This site is for you if….
You can look for a house anywhere. But a home, where you build memories and live your life in, is another thing all together. This is the place to be if you are looking for home to call your very own.
You have also come to the right place if you are looking for solid advice for building future wealth through home ownership or selling your current home for the maximum amount the market will bear.
Enjoy the home search features and the community pages that enters listings according to community. My blog includes data on the local markets dating back to 2009 and sound advice for buying and selling a home as well advice on choosing a location in Westchester to call home. In addition, I have posts on long-term trends vs. fads and how to spot a market that is growing versus one that might be stagnating.
In the interest of full disclosure…
On the other hand, if you are looking to “crush it” in the real estate lottery or some other get-rich-quick form of hocus pocus, PLEASE MOVE ON!! There is nothing for you to see here. Such schemes usually involve some form of magical thinking or/and fraud.
Agents and brokers that promise to sell your home for well above market value or find you a “real steal” belong in the same category with late-night real estate gurus who promise you can make a fortune in your pajama’s for no money down.
Certainly, home ownership is time-tested method for building a nest-egg. It has the added benefit of being the investment that you can live your life in. But there is no magic, no secret arsenal of real estate investments or lending products that will grant you instant wealth.
Have fun exploring, and if you have any questions, I am easy to contact by email, text, or phone.
All the best,
