It’s something many of us have seen before.  You list the property, market it, find the perfect buyer, and then the purchaser’s lender requests an appraisal.  If it doesn’t appraise, the buyer may not be able to get a loan.  But, it’s not always that simple.  What if the purchaser can get the loan they need to acquire the property? We listed a beautiful, two family home in Brooklyn late last year for over $1.1mil.  The property was on the market less than two weeks when a buyer who had been searching for over six months made a full price offer.  We negotiated the deal, did the handshake, and sent it to the attorneys to paper the contract, which was then fully-executed.  The contract of sale did not contain an appraisal contingency.  There was a financing contingency, so let’s take a loo...

Welcome to the Brooklyn Bridge by Feng Shui Manhattan Welcome to the Iconic and Historic Brooklyn Bridge Have you ever wanted to be in two places at once? Traveling from Long Island, to Brooklyn New York and walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, Ms. Cerrano was in 3 different locations in one day! After her Feng Shui Consultation in the Historic neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, Ms. Cerrano walked to the pedestrian entry point of the Brooklyn Bridge to travel across. The Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1883 and stretches across the East River. The bridge's construction took fourteen years, involved 600 workers and cost $15 million (more than $320 million in today's dollars). At least two dozen people died in the process, maybe even more, including its original designer. Now more than 125 years...

Our team has recently been engaged as the exclusive marketing agent to represent the developers in the sale of the condos at the first multi-family Passive House to be built in the United States.  For some of our potential customers, and perhaps those in the real estate community, this raises the question: “So what is a Passive House?”  We thought we would take a look at the basics.  According the Passive House Institute U.S.: “A Passive House is a very well-insulated, virtually air-tight building that is primarily heated by passive solar gain and by internal gains from people, electrical equipment, etc. Energy losses are minimized. Any remaining heat demand is provided by an extremely small source. Avoidance of heat gain through shading and window orientation also helps to limit any co...

Motivational Monday: Get up and go for it! by Feng Shui Long Island Sometimes life gives you challenges that bump you off your path or jolt you along the way.  It's normal that this happens but, remember you have the choice to step back along that path and continue.  Since the Carole Provenzale's passing in 2010, my world seemed to just stop.  Yes businesses is great, friends and family are always there to show support...but, it always seemed as if something withing just disappeared. It's now 2011 and we are on the verge of 2012.  It has been a solid year and I have not picked up a paint brush or pencil. My desire to be creative with the Arts had left. The only time has been to draw Feng Shui diagrams and layouts for my clients apartments and homes.  This weekend, I spoke with a good fr...

I just read a Village Voice article explaining that the Occupy Wall Street Movement was going to move from courthouse to courthouse to stop foreclosure sales in the five Boroughs of NYC.  Noble - but misplaced. Here is a press release, written by someone who purports to be an attorney, stating the reason for the mortgage meltdown.  Below, you'll see some slight differences between her 'opinion' and the facts.   First, as I didn't even mention in my note to the editor of the Village Voice - It's a Referee who sells a foreclosed piece of real estate.  Auctioneers sell co-ops at foreclosures as they are non-judicial sales. This letter is so asinine it is sad it was written by an attorney. Does anyone remember the 1980s when mortgage rates were in the high teens? Well, guess what helped the...
