The $64,000 question is what are you willing to do to make that goal come to fruition? How can you save more money regularly to make your dream of homeownership come true?  The name of the game is called “Sacrifice.”Think of whatever other activities you can do to squirrel away your money for your down payment.  So many of us are spoiled with conspicuous consumption as this is, unfortunately, what our economy is based on and dependent upon.Games on a hand-held device or computer for the children will go a long way toward keeping them occupied.  However, the games my children played way back when they were growing up were Candyland, Battle Ship, Monopoly, and Scrabble.Before computers and computer games, having fun with Hide and Seek, tag, duck, goose, hopscotch, baseball, football and s...

Millennials, Gen Z, and Gen X are struggling to be first-time homeowners.  However due to steep student loans, credit card debt, and salary levels, they are unable to save enough for a down payment, let alone pay back the money they owe.This has become particularly challenging over the last 10 years as the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a paradigm shift not ever seen before. People were leaving large populated and crowded cities to escape being near other humans to reduce the possibility of becoming infected.Those who could exit probably were in much better financial shape than most.  They began gobbling up the available housing stock, on Long Island and across the U.S., causing prices to spike and escalate at an abnormal rate.So as inventory was reduced year over year during the last fou...

Not being able to pay your mortgage is an experience that 95,349 families and individuals throughout the U.S. have been dealing with in the foreclosure filings during the first quarter of 2024 according to ATTOM.COM, a leading curator of land, property, and real estate data.This is a 3% increase from the previous quarter, but down less than 1% from a year ago.  However, March 2024 showed 32,878 U.S. foreclosure filings up 3% from the previous month but down less than 1% from the previous month and 10% less from a year ago.Those major metro areas with populations of 200,000 or more that had the largest numbers of foreclosure starts in the first quarter including NYC, NY (with 4,404 starts),  Houston, Texas, (with 2,977 starts), Chicago, Illinois(2,867 starts), Los Angeles, Ca.(2398 forec...

I was attending our Legislative Meetings in Washington, D.C.this month.    I had been contemplating a very beneficial idea for those end-users who want to purchase a foreclosure to be able to reside in the home.There is a major dilemma, however, confronting those eligible first-time individual and family purchasers seeking grant money from local, state and federal programs. Who benefits the most from foreclosures, investors or end-users?Currently it is the investor.  Unfortunately, investors offer nothing to the community other than raising prices, after they fix and flip the home and put it back on the market to be resold once again, or adding one more available rental to the local market, thereby reducing the availability of homes for sale.The end-user who wants to purchase will build...

By Philip A Raices  -May 10, 2024  0 Long Island is still on “fire” with a multitude of cash purchasers as well as those that have commitment letters from their lenders.  However “Cash Is Still King” and still rules in the world of real estate transactions. I received $35,000 over the asking price on a property in Levittown a few weeks ago, which actually “shocked” the Trustee of the Estate.  I had sold the owner’s previous home 10 years ago, but she had recently passed away.  But  I had stayed in touch over the years. One of the most crucial and critical thing that I have learned, absorbed and practiced over 42+ years, was to “stay in Touch” with current and past clients.  I learned this while performing this most important facet in growing my previous business of landscape design, li...

All Things Real Estate:  By Philip A Raices - April 15, 2024 0  Share  Tweet  Pin  Email  Share I have dealt with literally thousands of buyer and seller clients over the last 42-plus years, listening to their specific “needs and wants” in finding a purchaser for their homes and buyers in their search for their “next place to call home.” The one common denominator was the location, location and most importantly the school district. Even for those downsizing or who were empty nesters, the majority weren’t concerned or gave little thought to schools being of any importance.  I conveyed to them that the better the schools, the more stable the prices and potentially greater resale value. I have found and truly understand the importance of an excellent above-average education; the accompanyi...

Many Realtors went up to Albany on March 27-28.  This was our yearly pilgrimage and ritual to discuss and have a dialogue concerning proposals for new laws and regulations and their effect on real estate.  It was also the chance to explore current laws and ways to enhance and upgradethem for the current business environment in New York State.Their effect can be dramatic and costly for consumers and purchasers.  Laws that are enacted sometimes harm Realtors involved in the real estate industry in New York State.One of the major topics was the power that co-op boards have over purchasers, especially having to fill out an immense amount of paperwork providing a large amount of personal information. This is not a requirement when buying a condominium, townhouse, or HOA.As many as 1,500 page...

Philip A Raices -April 8, 2024   In the current real estate market, purchasing a co-op has been challenged by the rules and regulations that go hand in hand with completing the required board application and successfully passing the interview. Acceptable income, credit, and debt-to-income ratios will go a long way in reaching that happy ending. However, all boards in Nassau County have no outside oversight and accountability, as Suffolk County does. When a board turns down an applicant there, the board must respond within 45 days to explain to the respective applicant the reason or reasons why. In Nassau, there aren’t regulations that provide feedback to the purchaser when they are turned down. This allows those few who may indiscriminately decide not to allow a buyer to purchase. Disc...
