Selling your home is probably one of the biggest transactions you’ll make in your life and one that will certainly affect your financial future.  Here are the secrets you need to know to sell your home for the most money the market will pay, and on your own terms and time frame.   Step #1:  Understand What The TOTAL Market Is Doing, And Get The FULL FACTS.  Don’t just rely on local market information to determine the right price for your home.  Ask your REALTOR® for a “total market overview.”   What’s happening in general and how does that compare with what’s happening in this market (are growth rates the same, lower or higher)?  Now you need the specifics about your neighborhood.  What homes are on the market and what homes have (or haven’t) sold in the last 6-12 months?  A REALTOR® w...

Hunted Long Island NY Places-Katie's of Smithtown photo courtesy of Patch.com "Ghost Adventures," a popular Travel Channel show, shot an episode right here on Long Island.  The filming took place in 2013 and since then has put Katie's on the map.  This is one of the oldest buildings in the Smithtown area.   It's said the ghost that hits the bar most frequently is a former local named Charlie Klein, who was a bootlegger and bartender in the 1920s, as well as a former owner of the hotel that burned down. After some research, it was found out that Klein committed suicide in 1933 in fear of going to jail after selling a drink to an IRS man. Perhaps you might want to stop on by for a quick drink and no worries if your an IRS man, it's all good ;)   Besides possibly encountering a ghost or tw...
