Larchmont NY Housing Market Statistics – Fourth Quarter 2009

Larchmont Property underwent a downturn over the past year. Traditionally, this market had been quite resistant to recession forces however, the crash of 2008 brought prices down. But while it brought prices down those lower prices brought out buyers - particularly in the single family home market.

Finding a Pet-Friendly Condo/Coop in Westchester NY – It isn’t easy, but it can be done….

Its tough enough to find a condo or cooperative that will accept dogs - but a German Shepherd is much tougher. Even if the complex accepts larger dogs many are restrictive with respect to breeds. The German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Akita, Pit Bull, and from time to time my beloved Siberian Huskies are often on the chopping block specifically by condo and coop boards.

The Surrey Strathmore White Plains NY – Pet-Friendly Cooperative

The Surrey Strathmore is a complex of six mid-rise buildings which surround a courtyard. This is perhaps one of the more upscale cooperatives in White Plains. Built in 1939, the complex boasts some of the graces of a by-gone era. The ceilings are 9 ft high, and graceful archways separate living room, dining room and kitchen areas.
