You have so many options the North Shore extends for miles and miles, as others have suggested, I would recommend 1st to contact an agent and she if he or she will be the right fit for you. Listening and respecting your needs are the most important part of the process, 2nd price point so that he or she will provide you with locations for you to consider. Then commit to hiring agent to work for you exclusively and get the ball rolling. What is your time frame to move? ... more

Contact a trusted local lender for advice on what programs they have available with different down payment amounts. You can then make a decision from there which way to go.

Michael Richman answered:
Eighteen days from contract to closing is an incredibly short time in this part of the country, especially for a deal with financing. Ninety days is typical. Once you have signed the contract, it is unlikely a seller will let you out of it without losing your downpayment. This is the price for a seller taking the property off the market and losing the opportunity to sell to someone else. ... more

It's best to already have the appraisal as a contingency in the contract if you want to back out.

For the master insurance policy, you need replacement of the building. You also need hurricane coverage (wind) and fidelity (fro fraud on employees). For the buyers' personal home owners insurance, they do not need it for the mortgage but for the rules and regulations of the condo association. They will need replacement value (including the cabinets and appliances) plus liability of at least $100,000.
When I bought my condo in WPB, I had alot of difficulty with the insurance agents not knowing what a condo was.

Marie-Denise Kratsios answered:
Hi Nick, you've received some good advice here. One more thing to consider, although you must check with your accountant on this, is that your mother and father can give both you and your wife $10,000 tax free. It will help them with their estate tax planning and it will help you with your down payment, if you decide to purchase the home. Again, discuss this with your accountant. ... more

Elwood School District is #1, South Huntington is Number #13, Harborfields is SD#3 and Half Hollow Hills is SD#5
That is about all I know as I am a Mortgage Broker and not a Realtor, but my kids are in the Elwood District.
Hope this helps, and best of luck.

Northport's Main Street vicinity is renowned! It is a quaint, waterfront village that provides a heart to the surrounding Northport communities. Almost any time of year, there is something to do in Northport Village. With very active local Chamber and Historical Societies, Northport enjoys the benefit of involved citizens.

Centerport, just down the road a-piece from Northport, is predominantly residential. There are a couple of quaint storefront strips for quick shopping and the main 'Village' area would be in Greenlawn which is located south of Centerport on Broadway.

Both communities offer a wonderful lifestyle with boating and beaches as part of their allure. Centerport is located in the Harborfields school district and Northport is located within the Northport/East Northport school district. You can check out both school districts online at

Good luck with your decision!
