Babylon NY Real Estate Market Report Trends - Week Ending 3/20/11 Babylon NY Sold Homes There were no closings last week but 2 homes in Babylon NY are under contract. Technically, they are sold since they are not available but it's not said and done until you walk away from the closing table. One home that was listed for $344,000 was on the market for 32 days. I showed a buyer this home and told them this home will sell in less than a month. I was close. A home at that price point in Babylon NY in the Babylon School District is going to fly off the market, period. This home needs nothing. It is your picture perfect move-in condition. And it is a seller's market right now for those types of homes in the Town of Babylon because they are scarce right now.The other home was listed at $314,0...

Whaler's Cove Condos Babylon NY Real Estate Market Report For 2010 Seven condos sold last year in Whaler's Cove. For the most part, these condos do not linger on the market for long.   Whaler's Cove in Babylon NY is minutes away from shopping and restaurants on Deer Park Avenue. Believe me, there are no lack of choices for both. My favorite restaurant is the Armodillo Grille. Everything is homemade even the salsa and chips. Love their baby back ribs! Their address is 1 Main Street, Babylon NY Condos in Whaler's Cove are either one or two bedrooms. Some have efficiency kitchens and some have eat-in kitchens.

Babylon NY Real Estate Market Trends - Week Ending 1/2/2011   Happy New Year! There are 78 homes currently on the market in Babylon NY. Babylon NY Homes For Sale: No homes were listed last week.Babylon NY Homes Under Contract: No homes went under contract last week.Babylon NY Sold Homes: One home closed last week. It is located on South Bay Drive and sold for $415,000. It was on the market for 221 days. It was originally listed for $529,000.....severely overpriced! Even though it's a waterfront property, the kitchen needed a lot of updating. There were only a few photos and that can hurt showings also. When there are 2 or 3 photos of a home, buyers get suspicious because they feel that the home has major updating problems and this prevents them from seeing any home. Call me today (631) ...
