When a listing agent wants too much “control” over showings…

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.

New Construction

Don’t set foot on that new construction site without knowing the rules of the road!

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.

Frozen Hudson River

Is housing inventory in a deep freeze? Why are so few homes on the market?

It may be spring - but brrrrrr....its cold out there. At least when it comes to the tight housing inventory that is currently on the Westchester NY market.

What is this house worth?

Home buying & selling – the steal vs the deal…

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.

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.
