I made many mistakes in addition to trusting that my agent would do the work for me since originally one item I was trying to control was to use the agent who listed the apartment in order to find something decent in my price range. Promises were made, lease changed and sent to me after I already moved in. It wasn't my agent's listing. Now my lease is over and my lose is great. Since the idea was to keep the costs low- this is a big problem. My lease is not too kosher. But- I am grown and know better but didn't. So what's the best solution.... more

Consider, too, that flooding and major storm activity is predicted to increase, not decrease or hold steady. You will flood. I guess the question is, will you be able to find insurance that is affordable and will cover your losses? We live in a flood plain in Rye, and we've had enough -- and this is before our house has flooded!... more
Hi: There are many reasons why real estate sits on the market for a long time. It all boils down to the ratio of the following: price, exposure, location, condition, seller motivation, & incentives to the buyer's agent & to the buyer. As soon as these items are properly in sync, the property will sell. With co-ops there is 1 more level of complication, which is the co-op board. Sometimes co-ops take longer to sell because the Board has rejected buyers. If you're curious as to why a specific unit hasn't sold, I'll be happy to try & explain it. Sometimes you have to be a bit of a detective to figure it out. Please call me at 914-273-9688. Sincerely, Michael F. Levy, Principal Broker, Grand Lux Realty. www.GrandLuxRealty.com.... more
No. As a recent (4 years ago) graduate from HHS, I can say that the school district is poorly managed and generally inferior to most of the neighboring school districts. The HCSD administration basically coddles a quarter of each class (so that they can get into schools worth reporting in the local paper), while playing damage control on the remaining three quarters (keeping them out of jail).
Unless you want your child to end up spending his adult nights on a bar stool at Uncle Henry's re-living his glory days as a HHS fooball star, you mat want to keep clear.
p.s. there are, of course, many job opportunities for HHS grads with the HPD.
p.p.s. - You, Newbie, may actually feel quite at home in Harrison, where a vocabulary with words like "criterior" and "destrict" would put you at the top of your class.... more
Hi, You need to read your agreement carefully. The last thing you want to do is breech the contract and be responsible to pay a comission to agent #1. You should have received a copy upon signing the agreement. Most agents won't even entertain working with you unless there is clarity on the terms of your existing contract.
