westchester homes for sale: New homeowners uncover an unexpected surprise. - 09/03/17 11:13 AM
I've been in real estate for almost 30 years and I've seen a lot, but I've never seen anything like this before. 
I recently sold a lovely young couple their "forever" family home. He's a local fireman and she's a teacher. The house dates back to the 1920's, and my buyers knew that it needed quite a bit of updating. Money was tight and they were about to have their first baby, so the buyers wanted to get the place livable but they had to keep expenses within their budget.
The home inspector had pointed out a number of issues common … (1 comments)

westchester homes for sale: Demolition Central - 05/31/17 08:09 PM
by Peggy Shea ~ Leogrande Team
 We have taken the first step of our kitchen renovation project; Demolition. I had no idea what demo meant until I felt the entire house shaking as the walls came down. It really makes you appreciate the construction of a house when you see the bare bones.  Our house was extremely well built and it still had problems such as rotted pipes and sinking floors.   Of course, there are different degrees of kitchen renovations - from simply re-facing cabinets to tearing everything down to the studs.  The sheer number of choices I have to make … (0 comments)

westchester homes for sale: Gary's Market Insider - End of November 2015 - 11/29/15 06:10 AM
Recent closing activity is high, but everything is so much more complicated, and we're not even dealing yet with the new TRID mortgage rules that will affect loans made after October 3rd. The banks are getting ready for a higher level of scrutiny from the Federal government, so they are closely monitoring all deals to make sure they don't get in trouble for lack of due diligence.   For example, a recent residential closing was held up over an issue of peeling paint - on about 12 feet of fencing in a backyard.  The appraiser had to come back out and reinspect. Note … (0 comments)

westchester homes for sale: Your Credit Score Affects Your Purchasing Power - 11/29/15 05:40 AM
My niece recently graduated from college Magna Cum Laude and is working at her first job. She would like to rent an apartment in New York City and asked my advice. My first piece of advice to her was to build up her credit. For those just starting out, a good credit history will help them rent apartments and get car loans and mortgages in the future. Paying bills on time is the key. Paying off student loans is a good place to start. Making student loan payments on time is an effective way for young adults to boost their credit scores. … (1 comments)

westchester homes for sale: "Contextual Negotiation" is Necessary - 10/01/15 02:44 PM
The current market in Westchester is one of limited inventory where listings are receiving multiple offers and frequently selling over the asking price.  Now, more than ever, negotiating from a position of knowledge about the seller's needs and situation - what we have coined " Contextual Negotiation"  - is the most effective way to close a deal.  When the seller is a bank, the factors governing the negotiation are cut and dry: the largest down payment, best offer, and the fastest closing date will get the deal.  However, in the case of an individual selling a home, doing the research increases the … (1 comments)
