Garden City as an area is reporting a healthy number of properties under contract and closed on the LI MLS. You ask if it is a buyer's market and if houses valued for $1MM are selling for less and the quick answer to both of those questions is yes. There is good inventory on the market and while prices have taken a hit over all, the greater "discounts" are on homes in higher price points. In addition, buyers are smart and, in this price bracket, want to, if possible, stay under $1MM in order not to subject themselves to NYS's Mansion Tax. That said, houses priced well and not requiring a lot of work are selling at a good pace. And, the price point you ask about is seeing good activity. There are definitely buyers out there.
Garden City is a wonderful community with much to offer (as you know, your zip is 11530!) and I have customers who are actively looking in the area. If you are interested in listing your home, or would like more market trend information, feel free to email me at email@example.com. It would be my pleasure to talk to you and help you in any way I can.
