Hi Melissa, Since I work in those areas I will say that Dobbs would be, then parts of Hastings and Irvington, Edgemont last. The price ranges in Dobbs and Hastings can range from 400k to over a million. What you get will depend greatly on your expectations and needs. Irvington has an area called East Irvington where homes are much more affordable then Ardsley park and other sections. When I say affordable I mean between $500k-$700k. The last thing you'll have to take into account is the high property taxes which you'll find in all of these towns. If you would like to discuss options further please don't hesitate to ask. Have a great day!

Perhaps privately. It was never listed on the Westchester/Putnam MLS.

Generally the seller pays the transfer tax in this area. The exception you run into sometimes are bank foreclosures and new construction. Many builders require the buyer pay the transfer tax. There are even some builders who are now trying to place a transfer fee to the builder right in the deed should you sell in the future. The way they are trying to write it, it would affect all sales of a specific property for the next 99 years.

FYI, a number of replies stated the transfer tax is $4 per $1,000, which is mostly accurate. Actually, it is done in $500 increments and is $2 per $500. Sid made a good point that some cities also charge a transfer tax.

Hi! We live near Main Street in Irvington but my husband drives to the Ardsley train station to park because it is much less crowded. If you take the 7:16 train to Grand Central you are almost guaranteed parking really close to the train platform. It is also a beautiful view, nice for waking up slowly! Hope that helps. ... more

It is a very interesting question. If you are shopping to find a realtor to represent you, that is fine. If you are doing it because each realtor is showing you their own listing that can be a detriment because you must remember that the agent in that instance is really the agent of the seller. Some agents work within a small geographic area while others cover much larger areas. If you are working with multiple agents you may not get their undivided attention as you would with a true buyer agent.

Just as the seller receives the fiduciary duties and other responsiblities from the Seller's agent, I always suggest to buyers that they should get the same fiduciary duties and more from their buyer agent.

Just like shopping for a car, clothes or other important personal items, interview and shop around for a realtor who fits your criteria and needs. This is high value purchase and you should have very good representation protecting your interests not only finding you a home but in negotiating the transaction and verifying all the information pertinent to the property.

Good Luck.

Have you considered a 3 bedroom co-op? I know that is a small space but it would be in your price range and location. There is one on the market now and they come up periodically. There are down payment and financial requirements but it might be something to consider long term.

If you have any additional questions, please give me a call.
