I will assume you are referring to 280 Park Ave., Harrison, NY? The listing you saw on Trulia is copied from Zillow which owns Trulia. I went to Zillow's website and you need to contact the Foreclosure Trustee or Attorney: Gross Polowy and Orlans, 25 N Pointe Pkwy, Amherst, NY 14228. Tel: 716-204-1700. Notice of Sale was 6/15/2015 and Auction was scheduled for 7/14/2015 in the Village of Ballston, NY. The loan was issued by US Bank National Association.

In 2015 and 2016, it was listed for rent and both times the listing was removed. The brokerage involved is Julia B. Sotheby's in either the Larchmont or Rye office.

I looked at the pictures on Zillow. The inside has been renovated - new floors, new kitchen and it's very clean. This looks like the owners spent money on renovations instead of paying their mortgage. The issue with this is I know from experience the price you will need to pay is a lot more than $469,093. You need to pay for penalties, liens, fines, etc. Yes the bank wants you to pay - they are not going to take a loss.

Additionally, I suggest added the search by school district functionality back. Also, I recommend including tax information.

When it comes to school you will have to decide what districts work best for your kids. Agents are prohibited by license laws from talking about the quality of schools. Once you determine the districts that will work your options will be narrowed. Much of southern Westchester is close to Yonkers and also NYC. Check into White Plains, Scarsdale, Mamaroneck, Eastchester, New Rochelle, Pelham, and Larchmont.

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, 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.
