Here's your chance to lower property taxes.  Homeowners and homebuyers often complain about property taxes, myself included.  With home prices dropping, many homes are overassessed.  As a homeowner, grieving your taxes allows you to save money annually and in the long run.   It is a great benefit, when selling your home, to be able to list lower taxes.  High property taxes are often a huge turn-off to buyers.  When dealing with first time buyers, who are concerned with mortgage payments and utility bills, the lower taxes make the home very attractive. Overassessed Home = High Taxes The deadline to file your grievance (Grievance Day) is the 3rd Tuesday in May.  This year would fall on May 19th, 2009.  Tax grievances may be filed by the homowners themselves or a representative of the home...

The Security Checklist  1.  Don't give your schedule out over the phone.  For example:  if a buyer is inquiring about when he/she can come over to view your home, don't say "I work during the day and won't be home until 6pm" or "I'm going away for the weekend, but will be back on Monday".  Don't let strangers know when no one will be home! 2.  Always get the buyers phone first and then call them back to give any home details. 3.  Make sure you are never alone when showing the home.  If it can't be helped, make sure a friend/neighbor knows about your appointment to show. 4.  Have important phone #s programmed on your cell phone (which should be done anyway) and carry it with you during a showing. 5. Don't leave the buyer alone to roam the house.  If your house phone rings, let the answer...

Recently, I met an out of state family looking to relocate in Commack.  They were very adamant about living in the Commack or Northport school district.  The reason being that Commack and Northport High School are part of the IB World Schools.  These 2 high schools offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) program.   I have never heard of this program and decided to find out more about it.  There are 2,378 IB World Schools in 128 countries.  IB World Schools must undergo a very selective authorization process in order to be part of the program.  "It is like having an international diploma", explained my buyers' daughter.  The diploma is recognized around the world and highly welcomed by leading universities worldwide. The program encourages young students to become involved in service-...
