Don't Sell Your Short Sales Short! In these recent tough economic times, every Realtor I know has a Short Sale property in their portfolio of listings. But only the savviest of those Realtors have been Staging their short sales! I admit, at first, the suggestion to Stage a Short Sale seems a bit counterintuitive...the homeowner is in financial distress and possibly headed towards foreclosure- How can I responsibly suggest that they Stage this property? But in truth, these are exactly the properties that need to be Staged! A homeowner who is in a Short Sale position is facing selling their home for less than what they owe on the mortgage so every dollar counts! That is why it is always in the best interest of every seller that you suggest that they have their home Staged! It has been pro...

Tax Credit Almost Gone!!!! Well in our area here in New York, you are beginning to run out of time to qualify!!!! It takes any where from 45 to 90 days it seems lately to close a Real Estate deal here in New York. That means if you don't get into contract before October 15th at the latest, but most likely you need to be in contact by September 1st. Some banks are handling their deal in a more timelyfashion but most seem to be floundering with a clue. This means the buyers that are out there better choose their banks and mortgage brokers very carefully.

Things have been very good the last 2 months!!!! Well, here at Coldwell Banker of Yorktown we have been seeing just as many deals going into contract as we have gotten new listings. This is quite a turnaround from where we were seeing almost twice as many new listings as in contracts. Inventory levels are starting to level out, another sign that things are changing. I also feel that as we get closer to the deadline for being able to file for the $8,000.00 Tax Credit things will get even hotter. We have had quite a few people qualify for the Tax Credit and will be seeing a lot more.

A homeowner recently challenged me on the necessity of Staging his vacant property. After giving him all the usual Staging rhetoric I began to describe my favorite analogy and suddenly- the lightbulb went off! He got it! So I thought I'd share it: I like to compare Staging a vacant home to wrapping a present.  Imagine you received two gifts: The first gift is a blue sweater thrown in a brown paper bag. The second is the same blue sweater presented in a beautifully wrapped gift box with shiny wrapping paper and white cascading ribbons. Which evokes more excitement? Which do you perceive was more expensive? In the same way gift wrap does not change the gift, Staging doesn't alter what the buyer is buying but Staging does show the home in its best possible light and it evokes excitement an...

Looking for a way to get the other agents more enthusiastic about showing your home? Well here at Coldwell Banker of Yorktown one way to do this is to list your home with a higher commission that other homes are listed for. You may say well that will cost me more money!!! But at Coldwell Banker Of Yorktown based on the chart below we average almost a 4% higher sale price than the Market Average. Which means at 7% as opposed to 5% with other agencies you actually put an extra 2% more net in your pocket. Warning do not try this with the other agencies listed below you will lose 2-4% of your net based on these stats. Check out the FACTS about Westchester County Real Estate!!!

Blind man sees the light or maybe not! New York Governor David Paterson proposed Star Rebate Elimination. We are losing people to other states every week because of taxes here in New York, and in the latest Budget proposed by the Governor he cuts out a portion of the Star Program that helps keep a lot of our seniors in their houses. I am a firm believer of cutting the fat in Government Spending, but not when he makes our Seniors lose their homes. because they are on fixed incomes.
