Fisherman's Wharf West Babylon NY 152 Millard Avenue Estimated Monthly Mortgage Payment I have a new listing at 152 Millard Avenue in West Babylon. Below is a chart to show you your estimated monthly mortgage payment for 152 Millard Avenue West Babylon NY:   If this West Babylon NY coop sold for $200,000 this is what your estimated monthly mortgage payment would be. The coop Board at Fisherman's Wharf in West Babylon requires all buyers to put down a minimum of 15%. Your bank may want you to put 20% down given how your credit is. So, with 15% down your estimated monthly mortgage payment would be $1,956. That is the average cost to rent a 2 bedroom apartment in Lindenhurst NY and West Babylon NY. With a coop, it is still an investment for the future.

Another West Babylon NY Sold Coop! 106 Farber Drive West Babylon NY - Country Club Gardens Listed for $129,990 and sold for $122,990. That is 5.4% below the asking price. That is awesome for a West Babylon NY coop! It was on the market for 36 days. Now, that is a record for a coop as well. My homeowner and his wife are happy it sold since it was an estate sale and the buyer is one happy camper! They are a first time home buyer and a West Babylon NY coop is the perfect place to start if you can't afford a single family home.

Consider Yourself Mooned! These aren't the best photos since I didn't have a tripod handy and had to hold the camera. The moon was so bright Thursday night. I must have taken over 50 photos at different aperture and shutter speed settings until I was happy with the results. The end result? I'm hitting hubby up for a new camera for my birthday! There were tree branches in front of the moon by the time I disovered the best settings.

This Is What I Found This Morning.............. My routine is that I get up and make a cup of tea. I sit on my deck and wake up. This morning, I didn't need much to wake me up................ Somehow, sometime last night, this beautiful tree fell over. I can sleep through anything so for all I know, we may have had some wicked storm last night that caused this tree to topple over. I'm the Treasurer for my HO Association so now I'll have to call a few members of the board to check this one out and get it removed. Too bad because this was a nice tree.

Closings Can Bring On Mixed EmotionsClosings are a happy day for sellers and buyers. With all the issues that can and do come up while waiting for closing day, closing day is a relief for all.For me, I find closing day to be a mixed bag of emotions. Today I have two closings back to back. My homeowner sold his West Babylon NY Co-Op that I listed in December, 2010. We went under contract 72 days later. He is also purchasing a beautiful home in West Babylon NY. My client was wonderful to work with. Both a seller and a buyer, he has put up with so many issues that arised during both of these transactions. All the time remaining calm, cool and collected. He gave me two transactions and that I am grateful for.We had fun while house hunting. Saw strange things and had many laughs. I always s...
