    Everyone asks me this question- When is the best time to shop. So here are my thoughts on this.  From now until March 1st is the best time to shop.  It is usually when the smallest inventory is on the market.  It has been my experience that this is when everyone is the most serious.  Sellers are serious as they will be putting up with people tracking mud into their home and having to keep the walkways super clean-this shows they are seriously ready to sell that home and ready to deal.  Buyers are braving the weather and dragging their Realtor out in all sorts of foul weather to look at homes---they are seriously ready to deal.  When you have parties like that engaging in these activities--- you have some serious real estate going on.

    So in my humble opinion, now is the time to shop, espcially now, rates are low and prices are low.  We are seeing some leveling off and the only place to go from that is up so now is the right time.  Now I must qualify that with this- If your job does not seem reasonably secure and you are in doubt about that there is an old italian saying that roughly translates-"When in doubt, leave it out". So call me at 845-417-1314.  We'll shop, we'll talk, I'll find you a nice house, cause that is all I sell!!!  Take care and happy holidays.
  • Wall st is selling high, the elections are over and I feel homes moving!

    So the elections are over and Wall St. is selling and it appears housing is starting to move.  I have even heard of a couple of multiple offers on homes. Prices are the lowest I have seen in a long time, rates are still low and you can be in by the holidays.

    Now this time of year is great for homes.  Picture a nice newly purchased home with fireplace going and friends and family enjoying good company and good food.  I, myself have put in a new kitchen in my home.  I love to cook and now I am enjoying cooking twice as much.  I gave myself a present from me to me of nice granite countertops.  I still find myself running my hands over the cool smooth surface.  I am looking forward to having people over to my house and going to other peoples houses to see how they have decorated for the holidays and to enjoy their home as well as mine.

    I don't care what anyone says---There is no place like"HOME"!
