Yorktown Heights New York Real Estate Yorktown NY was first inhabited by the Native American tribes of the Mohegan, Osceola, Amwalk, Kitchawan and Mohansic.  Many of these names are now the names of local places.  In 1683 Stephanus Van Cortlandt purchased his first tract of land from the natives and by 1697 he had acquired 80,000 acres.  That year the town was called the Manor of Cortlandt.  Almost a hundred years later it was renamed Yorktown after the victory at Yorktown, Virginia during the Revolutionary War.  Today Yorktown has rolling hills and farms along with residential and commercial areas.  Over 1,400 acres have been designated towards parks and recreation, making outdoor activities endless.  The Taconic State Parkway runs north and south through the town making commuting easy...

Are you still listing your home with that agent that gives you the highest price??? I have seen a lot of homes coming on the market with prices that seen to be just plucked out of the air.Some agent are getting so desperate to get listings they are just making up prices to make the owners list with them. For a while agents here were pricing things at a reasonable range, but recently they are getting back to BUYING THE LISTING!!! I guess some people just don't get it!! We at Coldwell Banker of Yorktown believe that if you want to sell your it should be priced at a number that will get people in your door. We recently have had a few listings that got accepted offer within TEN (10) DAYS of going on the market. Our sellers are ecstatic!! We at Coldwell Banker of Yorktown believe that the mo...

Do you know how to apply the First Time Home-Buyer Tax Credit?  When you do you tax return you will need to fill out the form known as IRS Form 5405 to determine what you qualify for. Then on your 1040 Tax form, line 69, you need to put the amount from form 5405. No other forms are required, and no pre-approval necessary, The only other requirement is you need to be under the income requirements. #3 - The First Time Home-Buyer Tax Credit!!! #3   Don't Miss The Opportunity to buy or list Your Home With The Company That Gets The Job Done!!!!!   Thomas SantoreAssociate BrokerColdwell Banker845-590-5488  Westchester County Real Estate Visit My Web Sites at;  http://www.realestatesallhere.com/   http://www.tomshouseofforeclosures.com/     http://www.icansellyourland1.com/Business Opportunit...

The First Time Home-Buyer Tax Credit!!! #2 How do you calculate the new tax credit? Basically the Tax Credit that you can receive is determined by the price of the purchase and your income. If the purchase price is under $80,000.00 and you are single with an adjusted gross income of up $75,000.00 you will receive up to 10% of the sale price. If you are married filing jointly you income can go up to $150,000.00 and still get the credit. An example would be if the purchase price is $45,000.00 and you meet the income requirement you will receive $4,500.00. If your purchase price is $80,001.00 and meet the income requirements you will receive $8,000.00. If the purchase price $350,000.00 you will receive the same $8,000.00 credit. If you income is more than $75,000.00 for a single person but...

The First Time Home-Buyer Tax Credit!!! What makes you a FIRST TIME HOME-BUYER? Well the Government has a very wide view of who qualifies as a FIRST TIME HOME-BUYER. It is said to be someone who has not owned a home as their PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE for the last Three Years. IF A COUPLE THAT IS MARRIED AND ONE OF THEM HAS OWNED A HOME BUT THE OTHER HAS NOT THEY DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THE CREDIT. ON THE OTHER HAND IF A COUPLE THAT IS NOT MARRIED BUYS A HOME AND ONE OF THEM HAS NOT OWNED A HOME IN THE LAST THREE YEARS THAT PERSON CAN DESIGNATE THE TAX CREDIT TO THE OTHER PERSON TO CLAIM ON HIS OR HER TAX RETURN. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR A PARENT THAT CO-SIGNS FOR THEIR CHILD. THE CHILD CAN THEN CLAIM THE FIRST TIME HOME-BUYER TAX CREDIT. Don't Miss The Opportunity to buy or list Your Home With The Com...

  Marketing Tips #19, Westchester County real estate-What it takes! 63. Are you getting all you can out of your Outging Referrals? You should be telling anyone you know that you are in Real Estate. Never assume they know what you do. You will be surpriced who is moving to a different area. 64. How do you treat incoming Referrals. A lot of agents do not give it thier all when they know they have to give up some commision. What they don't realize is that it is business that they would not have had at all, and it is extra money in thier pocket if they make it work.   65. Make your referral fees worth the other agent participating. If not then they will not won't to send you the extra business.  Don't Miss The Opportunity to buy or list Your Home With The Company That Gets The Job Done!!!!!...

It's been a while since I've logged into my Blog, having gotten very busy in the past month, but that's really no excuse if I'm planning my time correctly.  Remember the concept of the "survival of the busiest?"  I think there's a lot of value in that concept, because being busy really forces someone to plan his/her day productively.  And today is Day One of adhering to a sensible schedule with my daily assignments logged in precisely.  And, one of those assignments will be to spend some time each day thinking about and writing my next blog post.  I think this is important because blogging enables me to gather my thoughts in a logical and cohesive way, and in doing that, it affords me a clearer perspective of what I'm doing and where I'm heading...and if that's in the right direction.

Westchester County Real Estate--Homes that are priced well are still SELLING!!!! We are seeing a vast improvement in pricing home properly and buyer activity!!!! Especially in Yorktown. There have been some homes that have come on the market in the last 3 Months that had accepted offers in the first 3 weeks of being on the market. Why do some homes sell faster than others? It's a very easy question to answer. The homeowners priced there homes according to the present market and made sure the condition matched the price. These two combinations make for a quick and easy sale when the competition is not priced accordingly. As more and more people realize this, they will be able to sell their homes also. We also need to do away with agents overpricing a home just to get the listing. Having ...

Marketing Tips #18, Westchester County real estate-What it takes! 60. When was the last time you did a listing presentation and then just left with out the listing. Did you know that 95% of agents that do presentations don't ask for the listing when they are finished (or think they are finished any way) Ask 3 times and then ask to come back!!!! 61. If you give them the pen you will get 35% more listings.  62. Some buyers just need a little push to get over the fear. Don't let them leave you in the parking lot. Ask them into the office even if just to discuss where they are going in the future and even just for a cup of coffee! Believe me it works.
