Hudson Harbor Townhouses - Tarrytown NY

General real estate trends – Downsizing…

The price-per-square-foot on condos of this type far surpasses what a downsizing couple can extract from their single family homes.

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.

Cardinal Christmas Ornament

Fotos On The Fly – Sights of the season – Cardinal in the Christmas Tree…

I love these cardinal ornaments because they are so pretty and so holiday -like that they really warm the heart. I think they are quite simply joyful! They also take me back to my childhood where my Grandparents had dozens of blown glass bird ornaments.

Desperately Seeking Power

The Politics Of the Power Grid…

I checked on the status of some former clients and friends…and guess what??? Everyone who lived in areas where the wires were buried had power. The results were far more problematic for those who had their electricity delivered on poles. One friend of mine STILL does not have power after 10 miserable days.
