Buying your Westchester home in 2015 – sticker shock in a sellers market

Westchester is one of the most expensive communities in the United States. So it comes as no small surprise that many home buyers are blown off their feet by sticker shock.What does surprise me is how many of these buyers still think that we are in a strong buyers market. Unfortunately, that is soooooo 2011 and we are now in a what should be considered a seller's market. However, that does not necessarily mean that this is a bad time to buy.

That condo is on the market for how much?!!! Westchester’s elusive empty-nester downsize…

Downsizing can be challenging. But one thing many didn't expect was "sticker shock". Downsizer's are finding is that the slick townhouse or condo they have their eye on can cost almost as much as what they can sell their far larger single-family home for.

Housing Matters - Tag Cloud

Another housing bubble or simply supply and demand….

Overall, the news looked more like (home prices were pretty much) status-quo with a 0.8% increase in sales volume overall over Q4 2012. However, one truth that never changes is that real estate is a LOCAL business....The west coast is just taking a breather after a major run-up in volume and prices...The northeast now appears to be on a tear, but let's not forget that it has been in the doldrums for years.
