north fork real estate: GREAT AFFORDABILITY BRINGS REAL ESTATE BUYERS FROM THE SIDELINES IN THE NORTH FORK & HAMPTONS - 08/18/11 07:18 AM
The Real Estate market in the North Fork (and the Hamptons) is brisk in the East End offices of Town&Country, we are happy to report.
Amid wild swings in the markets, caused by (international) sovereign debt crises, the Media are continuing to report on the RE market with a negative bias: a great example today was MSNBC's, and other cable channels'- negative slant on the NAR report of existing home sales for July of 2011, down 3.5% over June 2011. The reporting is entirely ignoring that the same number is up a whopping 21% over July 2010!

north fork real estate: The Peconic Bay Shopper, some name dropping, and famous Waterfront homes on the North Fork - 07/10/11 08:08 AM
East Hampton Main Beach The East End of Long Island has long been a getaway for the rich and famous. Since the 1980s the Hamptons have dominated the news as the playground for Manhattan's who'se who. The mix of proximity to the City and the world's best Ocean Beaches with great daytime (the most upscale shops and boutiques East of Manhattan, fabulous Golf courses and boating/fishing grounds) and night-time entertainment (famous restaurants and scenic nightclubs) still prove irresistable today.
But not that long ago, long before Allan Schneider put his very personal mark on the Real Estate market of the Hamptons, … (0 comments)

north fork real estate: REAL ESTATE ON THE NORTH FORK REBOUNDS STRONGLY IN APRIL 09 - 05/04/09 11:26 AM

People who have followed my blog and the statistics I keep on the most current Real Estate Data on the North Fork RE Activity were already aware, but, honestly, I am glad that the facts are now supporting my optimism since February: the number of days homes sit on the market before they sell fell, median price rebounded a bit, and April of 2009 beat April of 2008 hands down in number of transactions, number of transactions above $1 million, although total salesvolume in dollars still fell a bit behind (a lot of lower priced sales of attractively priced homes - value … (0 comments)

north fork real estate: Pending Home Sales Up - 1/3 short and distressed sales: A piece of advice! - 02/03/09 10:13 AM
December Pending Home Sales were UP nationally 6.3%, (Northeast down 1.7%).... roughly 1/3 distressed and short sales. http://www.realtor.org/research/research/phsdata
Sellers: your competition is selling lower... be aggressive in your pricing and do not deal with offers as you did when it was a selelrs market... Be nice to all buyers and counter aggressively.
Buyers: Indications are that we're bouncing around the bottom, probably, great time to buy! Pull that trigger and if you think the market's still lower than a seller's asking price suggests, make offers now at where you think the bottom will be...and prevent the competition outbidding you once everyone knows … (1 comments)
