FUN FACT FRIDAY LONG ISLAND REAL ESTATE Long Island Fun Fact Friday is here, courtesy of REALTORS® Lawrence "Larry" and Sheila Agranoff What Is Comparative Market Analysis in Real Estate (CMA)?  The easiest way to explain a Real Estate Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is that it estimates a home’s value based on the recent sales of similar real estate in an area. It evaluates a property's current value among those that are currently on the market, and more important, those that have recently sold.  Some mistake an CMA for an appraisal. It is not an appraisal. Usually an appraisal is requested by a mortgage broker or a bank to determine what the applicable amount of money they will loan a buyer or investor. They can only be performed by a Certified Real Estate Appraiser who follow the g...

 Nestled in Port Jefferson Long Island, in The Town of Brookhaven, The Riviera is a private Condo community on the North Shore of Eastern Long Island.   The Riviera can be reached by the Long Island Expressway to the Nicolls Road Exit and North to Route 25A to Oakwood Road. Opened in the 1970′s and continued through the 1980′s, the Condos at The Riviera were designed with contemporary flare.    There are attached Ranch floor plans, and 2 story townhouse units. This community is unique because it was built with no Condo backing up on another.

Downsizing a home is almost inevitable for many older people. Once your children are out of the house, you don’t need and probably don’t want as much space as you once had. Downsizing can be smart financially and give you a new lease on life, but it can also be an emotional decision to leave your home behind.The following are seven signs that it might be time to consider downsizing, even if you’re a bit hesitant.1.) Your Neighborhood No Longer Suits Your LifestyleThe location of your home can be as important to your lifestyle as the features of the house itself. When you bought your home, maybe your neighborhood was filled with young children or was close to the best schools.Those things might still be true of the neighborhood, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for you anymore.Yo...

With all due respect, when a lender verifies and validates information provided with your mortgage loan application, they don’t just take your word for it. While you may enter your monthly income on the application, they will use that amount initially to preapprove you but will eventually contact your employer directly to verify what you make each month. They will also ask you to provide them with copies of your most recent paycheck stubs covering a 30 day period. In this way, lenders verify your monthly income used for a final approval. But your monthly income is only the beginning of the validation process.First of course they look at the monthly gross pay for each month. If you get paid on the 1st and 15th, lenders add those amounts together for use in qualifying. Note, this is the g...

Home Buyers, Which Is Right For You, An Attached Or Detached Garage?   With all the decisions on your mind when searching for a home, have you thought about if you want a garage and should it be an attached or a detached garage?    Convenience is what most people think about with an attached garage, especially in bad weather. It's easier to access than a detached one. Another consideration that buyers like is that it makes the house appear larger, which some think makes it look more impressive from the outside.   A detached garage may be your preference because it has less chance of potentially harmful gas emissions. Or maybe you use it to work with power machinery and the noise level is too much for the family's comfort.       Whether it's an attached garage or detached, you may feel ...

Some people think that proper organization will solve their time management problems. Maybe. But organization and time management systems or software is not the cause. It is goals, priorities, and motivation. When my clients in Westchester County New York tell me that they have problems with time management I ask them why. They talk about issues they are having, and I ask them why they are having those issues.Think about something for a minute. Have you ever found a time when you got so much done and had time left over? On the other hand, have there been times when you think I am never going to finish this? In either case you will find it had more to do with your goals and priorities than systems and procedures.Systems and procedures cannot create more time. There are many books that te...
