Marketing Tips 5, Westchester County real estate-What it takes! At this point you are realizing that these are very basic things to do. But I always say we need to get back to basics. So here we go!!! 13. This is a real important one to remember. When doing a CMA you are also interviewing the seller to see if you will be able to sell the home and if the sellers fit what you are looking for in a seller.

Yorktown Heights, Westchester County Real Estate. WHERE IS IT HEADED?? I wish I knew. We have had an up and down year so far. Last year up to this date we had 197 single family sales. This year we have had only 133, there are 21 homes in contract, for a "possible" 154 sales. Down 22% I don't think that is as bad as it could have been. Some areas are down almost 30%. If intesrest rate remain low I think we will have a very good spring in Yorktown. Also I am hopimg with the deals I know about that are about to go into contract, we should pick up about another 5-10 deals puting us at only a 17% reduction in sales. I know a lot of the new listings here have come on the market at some very good prices and with the recent price reductions of old inventory. I think Spring will be pretty good. ...

Westchester County Real Estate, Yorktown Heights 10598 Inventory in Yorktown Heights went down again for the third straight week!!!  16 Single family homes left the market this week. 3 actually closed, 3 went into contact and 5 expired. There were only 11 new home that came on the market plus 2 re-list. This means the inventory in Yorktown Heights went down again for the third straight week. If this hold steady we should have a pretty good fall market. Along with the low interest rates we still have home prices are going to be holding steady and will most likely go up slightly in the spring.

BEFORE I SELL MY VACANT LAND SHOULD I HAVE A SURVEY DONE? The answer is YES. Already having a survey of your property when you market it will speed up the selling process in more ways than one. 1st, buyers looking at your property will be able to determine where it begins and ends. This is important if your property is to be built on so set backs can be gauged as to whether or not the buyer can put what they want on the property. 2nd, you want to made aware of the possibilities of potential legal problems, such as encroachments and easement that are on the property. 3rd, you need to make sure of what you are selling. BEFORE I SELL MY VACANT LAND SHOULD I HAVE A SURVEY DONE? A friend of mine bought a piece of property a few years ago and there was no survey. The owner was not willing to ...
