What Can You Buy in Hartsdale for $150,000?  $150,000 will get you a very cute 1 bedroom co op apartment in a pre war building like one we just closed on last week.  with hardwood floors, a huge living room, a dining room, and a kitchen with a...wait for it...dishwasher. It is a junior 4 penthouse on the top floor of the building with a terrace and lovely view of the wooded grounds. There is a free van to the nearby Hartsdale Metro North train station on the Harlem Line, storage, and plenty of closets. The complex is walking distance to Central Park Avenue,  downtown Hartsdale, and plenty of food and shopping.  Not bad for $150,000 in southern Westchester County!

Nothing beats hardwood flooring for your home in Hartsdale NY. It just gives the home a classic look and it's so much easier to care and maintain vs. carpeting. But, where do you start? How do you know which is the best hardwood for your home and style? Should you do a lighter color hardwood or a darker hardwood? Or maybe one with a cherry tone. The truth is there are so many options, it can sometimes get overwhelming. And, here's where we can help you. We make it simple to pick your hardwood flooring because we "bring the store to your door." That way, you can see the samples in your own lighting (because it does look different there vs. the store). You can then color coordinate with your paint color and furniture. We will make the experience fun and enjoyable and quickly help you find...

Hartsdale NY  housing prices are running parallel to those of White Plains.  While some parts of the county have been experiencing a mini-boom in single family home prices in White Plains and Hartsdale are still trending downward.  Volume is up from the previous year, but that is that has not been reflected  in the prices.  Condos and coops are also following a downward trend in price that is being seen county-wide. Hartsdale NY Single Family Homes The median price of a single family home is down 17% from Q2 of the previous year to $433,000.   This follows the pricing trend seen in White Plains, but not in areas like Scarsdale.  As some of the higher end areas have come down in price, they have started to compete with areas like White Plains and Hartsdale – causing further stress on th...

The housing recession continued to exert its impact on local markets.  Hartsdale was no exception.  Areas such as White Plains and Hartsdale were late to the recession party.  For a while it looked as though they might emerge somewhat unscathed.  But the market crash of 2008 caused the correction to reach the lowr Westchester market.   The question remains as to where the bottom of this market truly is.  I have given up making too many predictions.  What  conclusions one can come to  are generally based on current inventories and the absorption rate.  Since housing is supply and demand – low inventories stabilize prices.   In any case, the decline is not over, but it is fair to say that the free-fall of last year seems to be winding down.

There are just a few good Jewish Deli's in Westchester County.  Blooms Deli in upper Westchester has closed.  The Mt. Kisco deli is no longer in Mt. Kisco but is now located in White Plains.   "But the granddaddy of them all — Epstein’s of Hartsdale — is going strong after 40 years. Bought from the original owners by Robert DeGroaf and his wife, stepdaughter and son-in-law about a year and a half ago, Epstein’s has been spruced up and given a new focus on service while still putting out the same juicy pastrami, corned beef and freshly roasted turkey that it has for years." Epstein's has just changed their menu, organizing it and making it much easier to read, the food is consistently good and the service is excellent.  Epstein's Deli is located on Central Avenue in Hartsdale, New York. ...

So when Enrico’s, an Italian Bronx bakery, opened at the site of a bakery in Hartsdale about 18 months ago, Glauberman saw a perfect opportunity to unite his passion for both Jewish tradition and bakeries.  Westchester has long had traditional kosher bakeries, like the White Plains Bake Shoppe or the myriad possibilities in communities like New Rochelle. That Jewish customers can buy a chocolate-chip challah or noodle kugel along with a dairy tiramisu cake or delicate italian pastries like sfogliatellle is a wonderful thing. Full article, here

    On September 2, 2009 I published housing statistics about Hartsdale, New York and the most significant change has been the number of days on the market, houses are staying on the market longer now than they did in September.   Between March and September 23 single family houses sold in the 10530 zip code.  The average price was $587,304 and the median price was $559,000.  The average days on the market was 140.

The Hartsdale NY housing market is in buyer’s market mode.  Prices for coops, condos and single family homes all experienced price reductions when compared with the third quarter of the previous year.   This was the second year of price reductions for the area.  Volume was variable with single-family home sales being down 70% over the previous year while there was a slight increase in the number of coop sales. Hartsdale Cooperatives: Coop prices dropped 11.1% over the previous year with the average price being $192k for Q3 2009. That was enough to make them a desirable purchase.  This was particularly true of East Hartsdale Ave.  Demand remained high and volume was up 1% from 2008.   There is a 5.8 month inventory on the market – making it a borderline buyer’s market in terms of invento...

The Hartsdale housing market is in buyer’s market territory at this time.  Like White Plains, the area resisted the housing correction particularly in the condo and coop markets until the stock market crashed in late 2008.  Single Family homes had taken a hit prior to the market crash and although declines continued – they were not as severe. Cooperatives: The coop market saw a 3.1% price decline from Q2 2008.  Hartsdale currently has an inventory of 11 months.  There are quite a few contracts and pendings at this time.  This reflects the longer escrow periods that the banks are responsible for.   Sales volume is down 12.5% over the previous year.   Much of that decline in slaes volume can be attributed to the slowness of the banks.  The number of contracts and pendings indicates that ...

The buyers market that we are seeing in most parts of Westchester is also in force in Hartsdale NY. Inventories are high while sales remain slow. However, interest in buying has picked up and there are those who say that prices are near their bottoms. Markets are by no means even. Areas near the train station seem to do particularly well when compared to outlying areas where a walking to Metro-North is not an option. Cooperatives: Prices stabilized this quarter to some extent. But this was on the heels of a significant price drop during 2008 particularly following the stock market crash. Prices will continue to remain weak due to high inventories and low volume. The change in volume of sales from Q1 of the previous year is a striking 65.4%. Only 9 cops sold during the first quarter comp...

Cab Calloway lived in Greenburgh, New York on Knollwood Road. His daughter and family are trying to repurchase the familyhome and turn it into a museum. In case you don't know who Cab Calloway is here is a segment from Wikipedia and a You Tube clip of him performing. From the Journal News today: "The family sold the Greenburgh home after Calloway died in 1994 and has since begun a fundraising campaign to reacquire and renovate it.
