The homes in Sleepy Hollow do not sell as quickly as homes in neighboring towns because the conventional wisdom is that the public schools in that area are not as good. Many families that live there send their children to private schools. This is then an added expense.
I personally love the older homes in Sleepy Hollow. Their historic beauty is priceless.
Some of the homes are also quite large, and I can easily understand that families may downsize to smaller homes.... more
Keep in mind that not all bank foreclosures are priced aggressively, but most are. The banks strategy used to be to price high and drop every 30 days until an offer comes along. Their current strategy of pricing aggressively tends to result in multiple offers witin a week. This is a generalization so you'll need to reply on your realtor's guidance in terms of offer price guidance.... more
Santosh, Jeannie Feenick back again - I've now visited nearly every one bedroom unit in Regency Village with a buyer I'm working with - while the price does vary, the units that stand out in value are in the $130K area. I saw one that was a short sale and it was so rough that it was worrisome - it was under $100K but I was concerned about the unknowns - the behind the wall issues. If you put in a nice kitchen and bath, you might be looking at about the $125K-$130K price range as the value at this point.
I'd be happy to assist you if you are interested - send me quick email. I'm acquainted with the development and pricing.
