Rant & Rave: Builders of Tomorrow? But many years ago and every now and then today, a builder actually has a vision of maximizing light, space and overall beauty of a home in addition to how one room flows to another.   We all have our strengths and weakness. Unfortunately for many builders today, weakness is their strongest attribute.                                                                              They call themselves builders because they have the money any can hire people to put together “homes” (using the word loosely). They insult people intelligence with ridiculous prices for tiny homes. I know your all guessing, Hmm, does he like builders. Actually I do some will not buy land that the can not build a decent size house. Of course their motivation is that a larger home...

Buyer 101: COOPS -Who's Your Foe, The Board or The Banks? This is a great question to ask while the mortgage turmoil is occurring across the US.Prior to the turmoil Coop Boards were typically harder to get an approval from, much harder than than  banks. Well, as of Fall 2009 the banks are taking the lead and are making COOP buyers work even harder to get a mortgage commitment.   COOP REQUIREMENTS If you are interested in buying a Coop apartment, there COMMON requirements that you may know of. Some are:   Board Approval which is a review of your application (your basic profile, work family). If you fortunate you may have a sponsor unit which do not need Board approvals but have there own pros and cons.

Why Do Sellers Rush Buyers to Sign A Contract While A Buyer is Reviewing A Home Inspection? Please understand in NYC A Seller can entertain as many offers as they wish until there is a signed contract. So, you can lose any money invested prior, for example home inspection, terminte inspection, plummers etc. My Response: Home Inspection:Scheduling and Review A lot of times buyers take a long time scheduling inspection, reviewing the results and then at the end decide not to go ahead with the deal. As a result, sellers end up losing deals with other qualified and motivated buyers. Just think if you were in their sellers shoes.Usually New Buyers do not want to make an offer and do home inspcetion when some else is doing the same Giving The Buyer Adequet TimeOn the other hand, the seller ha...

When I first started as a real estate investor, I thought I should buy as many properties as I possible can. A property allows you to make money with out any limit, but there are only two methods that are commonly used. Method 1) Buy and flip: Find a TLC / Handyman Special / or a Total Rehab property then buy It very low and sell it higher including cost of repair and labor. And in this market if you search hard enough you can buy a short sale with little or no work needed. Method 2) Buy and hold: When you purchase a property hold it to generate income and appreciate in value over time. Real estate demand continues to grow as population continues to grow and people are willing to pay for place to live. The two common problems investor doesn’t invest into Real estate. Problem 1) Tenant p...

An agent says a Seller is "eager to sell." The buyer said what does that mean? Some may see desperation of the seller others may see an opportunity for an easier negotiation. In either case, I of course had my interpretation and advice for the buyer. My answer was:Whats does eager to sell mean? Good question and many people interpret it phrase differently. I believe the seller or the agent representing the seller is just making you know that the price is not firm, they are willing to negotiate. So just view the home and determine at what price the home may suit your needs. If so make an offer. Seeing the substantial price reduction is a sign of being negotiable and/or realization that the original price was unattainable at this time and in this market. Make an offer! What is the worst t...

A Buyer recently asked a question, " What is the average price of a studio apartment in the Bronx 10467 zip code? I realize that many people prefer a zip code because of familiarity and comfort, but in the Bronx that may limit your selection TOO much. There maybe equivalent or better housing available across the street which may happen to be another zip code. being specific definitely helps the agent find narrow his search for you and the amount of time wasted. But still explore opportunities that are good second choices just in case. You never know.  My recommendation was: "The average studio in the Bronx are under $100,000. (550 sqft or less). I am assuming that you meant Coop apartments because there many more choices for coops than condo in the Bronx, especially in 10467. There are ...

Owners want to avoid paying real estate...and if I were in their shoes I would do the same! But, what makes a successful FSBO? Luck, time and effort.You Place Your FSBO advertisement and no one replies? Now You wonder" Am I exposing my home to enough buyers?HOW DOES A REALTOR HELP? Maximum exposures-Using MLS Multiple Listing Service, online and print advertisement, plus numerous websites. The seller might get lucky and find a buyer early. Isn't that great? But are you really saving time when a first time home buyer takes too much time finding financing, then discovers they cannot afford the home and back out of the deal. Now you have to start all over now that you have wasted a month or more.HOW DOES A REALTOR HELP? Pre-qualifng buyers before they enter your home. Buyers are more willi...
