Average Property Taxes for Lindenhurst NY 11757 The average property taxes for Lindenhurst NY for 2014 so far is $9,444. Below is a chart I created using data from the MLS. Ten years ago the average property taxes in Lindenhurst NY for 2004 was $6,073. Times have certainly changed. I'm always asked from Lindenhurst NY homeowners if they can grieve their taxes. To be able to grieve your property taxes, we have to prove your home is worth less than what the Town of Babylon has you assessed for. The process to start is easy. I come to your home to see how large it is, if you updated your kitchens and baths, if you have a finished basement or not, etc. Then I pull comparable homes for you. If I see your home is definitely worth less than the town's assessment, I give you those comparable ho...

The #1 Incentive To Attract Buyers When Selling Your House Price. It. Right. Sounds simple and it's common sense right? Even in a seller's market, if your Long Island NY house is not priced right it will not sell. The only thing you will be doing is helping similar homes in your neighborhood to sell and yours will be overlooked. Do not be the definition of insanity. What happens if you do get a buyer? The buyer's bank will not fund a mortgage if the appraisal comes in for less than the offer. The buyer will most likely not give you the difference in cash so you can either accept the appraisal price or not move forward. If you price your house above market value because that is what you need to sell, then do not sell. It's really that simple. Chasing the real estate market in any market ...

Did Every Home in Lindenhurst NY Flood from Sandy? There is this perception with buyers and homeowners that every home in Lindenhurst NY south of Montauk Highway flooded. That is not true. There are even homes on the water that didn't flood. It is about the elevation of the land and the home that determines if the home is in a flood zone. There are homes in Lindenhurst NY where the back of the house is in a flood zone but the rest of the house is in flood zone x which is not a flood zone. I have a listing in the Venice are of Lindenhurst NY that half the homes in the back are in flood zone AE but the front of the homes and the street are in flood zone x. It is certainly a quandry. Homeowners in Lindenhurst NY that want to sell have to get an elevation certificate from a licensed Land Su...

People Only Know What They See When sellers and buyers are searching for homes online they see how many are available and think that is the norm. Across Long Island the amount of available homes compared to last year is down considerably. Unless people have been searching for a home for a year or more will know that inventory is down now. Let's take Lindenhurst NY as an example. Last year consistently there were 236 homes available. As of this morning there are 155 homes on the market. That is a considerable decline. 39 of these homes are on busy streets and roads. Buyers that have been searching for a house since last year know this to be a fact and now wish they bought a house in 2013 or 2012. Buyers that have started their search a few months ago are thinking that a flood of homes wi...

Cash Offer. And? An agent was telling me that her buyer wanted to make a really low offer on a house because they are paying cash. Then comes another offer and the buyer is getting a mortgage. The offer is $25,000 above the cash buyer. The cash buyer didn't believe their agent because this buyer thinks it's a buyer's market and that cash is king and there is no way another offer came in. Think again. A homeowner isn't going to take $25,000 less just because an offer is cash. They will go with the highest and best offer as well as the best terms. A homeowner will wait 30-90 days to close on their home. Would you forego $25,000 just to close sooner? No you wouldn't. If you say yes, I want your head examined and I say that with love :) Long Island is experiencing low inventory across both ...

Can My Real Estate Agent Keep My House Active Without My Signature? Not in New York and not on your life! When a home expires from the market it is off the market, period. If you want your house back on the market whether with your agent or another, you have to sign all the listing paperwork again. When a home is due to expire from the market, your agent can give you a form called the MLS Report of Change Form. It is on this form what date you want to extend the listing expiration date to. You, being the homeowner, have to sign this form and your agent signs. If your home has been extended on the MLS without your written permission, your agent is not doing the right thing.

6 Things To Do Before Upgrading to A Larger Long Island NY House The decision to sell your Long Island NY house shouldn't be made quickly. You can't leave until you know where you are going. If you desire a larger home, you have to know what type of home you want. Across Long Island NY there is a shortage of inventory in most price points and home prices are rising. Buyers are having a difficult time finding "the one" and they cannot afford to be picky. What would happen if you place your Long Island NY house on the market, get a buyer then discover you can't find a house in a short period of time? You lose your buyer unless they love your home so much they are willing to wait months. Some say put your house on the market and worry about finding a home later. If you do that, you could e...
