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.

Hudson Harbor - Tarrytown NY

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.

Slide Show Screen Shot

Fotos On The Fly – real Estate Photography – slide shows & video – less is more…

The jury is still out to some extent on the value of video. Although I will be upgrading my systems to include video, I do believe that with respect to video, less is definitely more. I also think that a simple slide show of still photos can be quite effective.

Grand Entry from the balcony

Fotos On The Fly – Making A Grand Entrance – Part 2

One of the best ways to photograph an entry way is portrait style through the front door. Of course this will only work if the entry is in the proper configuration to stand out from in its best light from the entry. But it is generally one of the first shots that I try.
