Home Buying in 11746>Question Details

Jinsmom, Home Buyer in 11746

Hi My husband and I are looking for a home with our 3 young children in the Half Hollow School District.

Asked by Jinsmom, 11746 Sat Jul 25, 2009

Any chance I can find something decent in the $400,000 price range? Is buying a home through a short sale a good idea?

Help the community by answering this question:


I am a Realtor who sells homes in the Half Hollow Hills School District and my children also go that district. Call my cell 516-526-8557 to discuss.

The inventories are getting smaller. This is a very popular school district in Long Island. Please define what you mean by decent? HHH is includes the following towns: Dix Hills, Melville, part of Deer Park, part of Wyandanch, Wheatley Heights, small part of Farmingdale, small part of East Northport,

We have a district map in our office to help you determine the exact elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools the homes are in.

If you let me know specifically the type of home you desire I can help you locate homes for sale. There are condos, townhouses, single family homes in the areas I described above. Prices range from $300k to over $2 million.

SHORT SALE - If you must purchase a home before the school year I do NOT recommend buying a short sale. It is a very long process that I would be happy to exaplin to you on the phone.

Call my cell 516-526-8557. Good luck with your search.

You are definitely cutting it a bit close and you will wind up with a smaller home but there is definitely a chance. Most importantly, use a Certified Buyer's Representative or CBR to get you the best deal as well as give you the loyalty and the fiduciary repsonsibility you deserve as the person bringing the money to the table. Remember, without a buyer, there is no sale. All the listings you go to see have a listing agent representing the seller with you paying all the commisions by bringing the sale. You should have representation as well. That is where a Certified Buyer's Representative comes in. Make sure the rep is versed in the area you are interested in and interview a few different people. Make sure you are comfortable with that individual. I am a Trulia and Zillow Pro agent in this area. And by the way, you can also wind up in Half Hollow district in a few other towns.

Good luck on your search.

Find a realtor you TRUST and find it easy to talk to. They would be your best resource for finding what you seek. Short sales can be a way to go depending on your circumstances. Let me know if I can be of any assistance. Good Luck.

If you have not picked a realtor, I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you. I am a Certified Buyer Representative. The job of a CBR is to represent buyers in order to find the best possible home at the best possible price. If you already have a realtor, ask him or her whether they do buyer's brokerage. I would certainly answer any questions you might have. Good luck in your search.

Hello Jinsmom,
I am a Realtor working in this area I would be happy to assist you with your search for property in this price range and area. I have a property in mind it is not the best condition but if you are willing to do some work it may be just what you are looking for. I believe that short sales are going to start to slow down as the economy starts to get moving and banks may stop accepting this type of bail out. Dont let this deter you though if you find something available with a short sale, all banks are different and may continue to accept offers.You should contact me and I will e-mail you property to review and be more than happy to get you in to view properties.
