There is a lot of misinformation about the MLS floating around. Most sellers seem to think of the MLS as an almost public entity. They really don’t understand what the MLS is, who maintains it, or even its primary purpose.
Don't create conditions that create unnecessary roadblocks for buyers agents and their buyers. The bottom line is this: The purpose of the listing is to sell the home for the best price and terms. No more, no less.
As the market is changing from bear to bull, the builders are back and new developments are starting to spring up. So its time to talk once again about the surprisingly tricky issue of visiting new construction sites.
Don't try to beat the market! This is one of the biggest mistakes I see. Instead of dealing realistically with the market that they are given, some buyers dig in their heels and try to hunt down the last bargain in Westchester.
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.
