Mineola is very safe. Excellent schools, great shopping and health care. Many professionals live in Mineola because of the close vicinity of the Long Island Railroad to commute to Manhattan, as well as those who do business with the Nassau County government. Parking may be difficult, so make sure that issue is addressed if you own a car. Also, make sure the residence you are moving to are using Mineola (and not Hempstead) schools, as some areas are advertised South Mineola when it is supposed to be Hempstead. Good luck!... more
This place at this moment is under " Notice of Default" a public notice filed with a court stating that a mortgage borrower is behind in payments. This will be first step toward foreclosure, next step is the lender to file a notice of sale of the property,which is currently in process. Please call me if you have any questions.

It also depends if you would like to go public or private as well. It is important to take everything into consideration, would you rather pay higher taxes to send them to a better school, or pay less taxes and send them to a good private school. It really is a personal decision that on you as the buyer can research.... more
There are several questions that would have to be answered before the value of your property can be determined. A good starting point can be to perform a CMA, which our brokerage would be happy to assist you with at no charge. For a very rough idea of an initial value, feel free to go to http://bverealty.com/your-homes-value/ and click the link. This will give you an initial estimate of the value, which would have to be fine tuned with a question and answer session. Please feel free to call me for assistance at 516-578-6191 or 516-777-0146.

Consider working with an agent of your own, he/she will be your best guide. Maintenance does vary from building to building; much depends on size of the unit, and generally includes any underlying mortgage, taxes, common area upkeep, heating etc. If you have specific questions and know who management is, contact them directly.... more
If you are purchasing in Mineola check with the Village's building department, see link below. If buying elsewhere, check with the local town's building department. Keep in mind that if purchasing with a mortgage, the lender may not lend without a permit; for any necessary legal advice consult with your attorney...
In my experience, appraisal delays are not common. However, your real estate broker should be able to help manage this issue by contacting the mortgage provider for the buyer. He can ask if all the necessary paper work has been submitted...which if not, could be a reason for the delay.
Good Luck...Ben Oliva, Family Tree Realty.... more
You will have to check with the listing regarding which type of fees buyer is responsible to pay. This information is usually disclosed in the listing sheet. SInce you are paying cash - the closing cost will be significantly less but that does not mean you will not have any closing costs. If the listing states that the buyers pays the transfer taxes and sellers attorney fees then you are also responsible for this. If you do not have an agent your attorney can also obtain this information for you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any additional questions. Good luck on your home search.

In case you didn't know...when it comes to co-ops you don't own real estate. You own a share of stock. Most Co-op boards are strict about pets, wall colors, visitors, renting, etc. They are very picky about who buys so when you go to sell your co-op they will have final say on who you sell it to. If you can afford a Condo, you should look into that. With a condo you are buying real estate. It is your own property. Good luck on your search!... more
