This property isn't for sale. It's a bogus foreclosure listing that Trulia posts...because they make $$ off us agents when people inquire about them. This is also why 90% of the listing here are under contract or sold already. Trulia is just a marketing site that makes money by posting bogus listings and charging agents and lender to advertise their services here. There is NO incentive for them to ensure the listings are up to date or accurate.

If you're serious about buying a home, you need to hire a Realtor as your Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to create a search in the MLS for all homes available that fit your search criteria, including foreclosures. Do NOT rely on this website!

There are several thousands new homes, both condos and single family, being built in Arverne by the Sea as part of revitalization program of NYC. This community is beautifully planned and includes a Stop and Shop supermarket, YMCA, new charter school and transit plaza to NYC by A train. Of course it is an oceanside community and it has breathtaking views of the water and a 7 mile boardwalk. Beautiful! If you can afford it you have to buy it. ... more
