Somers, NY Real Estate News

You’ve not likely seen a real estate column like this where a realtor acknowledges being in a quandary about why a house hasn’t sold when it should have long ago, and ponders why, generally, some houses get snapped up right away and others linger on the market for weeks, months, or even years, without a serious offer. The quick answer might be it’s all a matter of price, but that isn’t always the case. Let’s look at some reasons a house sometimes doesn’t sell in a reasonable time frame by using as an example a particular house I have listed, with the owners’ permission, of course. This house is located near a lake in Somers and is owned by a couple who have had a bumpy journey in finding their buyer for what I consider a very special property. It’s special because it’s had some creative...

Are you looking to sand and refinish hardwood floors in Somers NY?   It's amazing what a difference refinishing your hardwood flooring can make.  Your floors will look brand new and you even have the option to change the color.  You can go light, dark, mid tones, or red tones.

It's amazing what a big difference this can make in your home.  And, believe it or not, it is usually less expensive to refinish your floors than to recarpet.  Refinishing your wood floors will also improve your home's value and it will be easier to clean and maintain.   At Floor Coverings International, we are a shop at home service.  We will bring the "sto...

What an absolutely lovely day.  The weather was perfect..and has cooled down a tad.  So, I had my coffee and red velvet cupcake from Tazza in Somers NY outside.  It was made even more special by a phone call from one of my favorite Active Rainers Pat Kennedy.  (I had the pleasure of meeting her at Rain Camp in Atlantic City). Anyway, I had a bit of time before my 4pm carpet appointment in Somers NY so I just sat outside catching up on estimates and savoring the coffee.  I overheard a long conversation between a woman who volunteers for a place where they have an elderly community.  (I'm not sure what type of place this is because I wasn't really paying attention and I was on the phone part of the time).  She was talking to a man who is 85 explaining the benefits of the community (and it...

Somers is near and dear to my heart. I went to high school here at John F Kennedy Catholic. The area is located in northern Westchester County and is very wooded and pleasant, with the NYC reservoir system running along much of its eastern border. Appearances can be deceiving: There is quite a bit of industry here, with huge complexes for both IBM and Pepsi hidden from street view on bucolic campuses. Somers also lays claim to being the cradle of the American circus, with the high school mascot as the "Tusker" and town hall at the Elephant Hotel.  The real estate market is also active.The following is the market activity for the 2nd quarter of 2001 for single family homes taken from the Empire Access MLS.  This past quarter, 26 homes sold at a median price of $538,500.  For the same per...
