When you go into our local Humane Society, I would have to say that the vast majority of dogs are pit bulls. I am sure you could say the same for many animal shelters across the U.S. The New Rochelle Humane

Increases also vary based on the coop's management, debt structure and size. If you need specific help finding affordable 2 bedroom living options, consult a realtor.

Very nice development in a beautiful area. You are, however, paying top-dollar for the ammenities and brand new construction. Resale construction in the area sells for less per square foot, but these don't have the gated community, 24-hour service that Cherry Lawn does. Much depends on how much you want to pay for these perks and what your time-line is. It appears as if the downward trend in housing is over in this area and the demand in the luxury market is always high. Further, the luxury market will not take the hit from the credit squeeze that entry level mid-range housing could suffer from.
Looking at the solds and current listings in the New Rochelle high-end market (I ran the numbers from $1.5-2.5 million) you have roughly one year of inventory on the market. This is not atypical for the high-end. But I believe that you do have negotiating room. Further, if you planning to stay a while, New Rochelle is on its way up. All in all, I give it thumbs up if you can negotiate a bit on the price or request some higher end finishes for the same price.
You also might consider some listings on Brittany Lane. These are located on the Long Island Sound and some of the homes are in the same price range. While you are at it, you might want to consider some existing but renovated older homes. They sell at less of a premium, but many have been modernized to the point where you get the best of both worlds.
You should use a buyer's agent before contacting any sales office. The agents there are SELLER'S agents and their fiduciary obligation is to the seller (the builder) and not to you. I am an agnet with Nelson-Vrooman GMAC in White Plains. You can contact me through Trulia or through the contact information that I have with my profile should you need further advice.... more

It's a busy road, and a main thoroughfare, but the traffic doesn't move very fast on it. At least not as fast as it does on North Ave or Webster or a that has multiple lanes going in each direction. That's mostly because that stretch is kind of narrow - there's street parking on a lot of Fifth, plus its a bumpy road, so people tend to drive kind of carefully. It is a little bit of a pain in the butt to pull into or out of a driveway on 5th because of the street parking and the fact that the road has some hills and dips and slight curves affecting visibility.... more
The pros are many, its an up-and-coming area that will eventually have all the attraction that White Plains has right now. The transformation in downtown White Plains is lifting all boats. Condos and coops are going up in value, not down. So - if you buy in downtown New Rochelle, you can catch the development "wave" before prices go sky high. (There are condos selling in WP for $3million + - an unheard of number 2 years ago.) Another analogy might be Harlem. Many bought before it was fashionable...now they are rich.
A couple of caveats. You may have heard one of your parent's say, "don't buy the best house on the block" - the same is true here. Buy something either at the lower end or middle....it's just safer. I kind of like the knickerbocker Lofts. Good Square footage, but in an area that is not transformed yet - so you get a lot for the money, but you have to live with industrial area while the transformation goes one around you.
The cons are mentioned above - you have to live with the ongoing transformation while it is happening. But it's not that bad - and you know what they say...no pain, no gain. Upward potential is mainly available in areas where some SACRIFICE is still required. Once there is no more sacrificing - the price goes waaaay up.
