Hi Theresa,
Port Chester has the 8th best real estate market in Westchester county according to Trulia, and on average, most homes sell within 6-8 months. However, the time frame can vary widely depending on the specifics of the property. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

Looking for an apartment can be a tough job if you can't find a reasonable price range to look at. It is pretty easy in a college town because there are tons of apartments to look at. I feel like you can get the best deals living where there is a high demand for apartments because there usually is a good price range. The second thing I would look at is how nice the apartment is.

Brent Kluge answered:
It completely depends on the ARV (As Repaired Value). That is to say, what will the value of your home be AFTER the renovation is completed. You can ballpark the cost by adding your mortgage payoff and your expected renovation and then divide by your ARV.

FHA 203k allows you to go to 110% Loan-to-Value, otherwise 10% ABOVE the final appraised value.

You can find great information about this and many other renovation topics at my website: just google 203k world

ALL the best!

Hi Susan,
This is always a landlord specific (or Management specific) item. I work with many clients that have animals, I have a few myself so I understand the need very well :)
I also live in Port Chester so I know the town extremely good and constantly keep track of the inventory here. If you'd like a list of rental properties currently available in Port Chester, that will except your pet(s), give me a call and I'll get it to you right away

No, you shouldn't.

If the ONLY thing wrong with your house is that it had outdated bathrooms - if you've updated everything else - the kitchen, the family room, what ever - then, I'd say, well yes. ... more

They don't list the property taxes because the numbers are outrageous, the average $600,000 home is close to $20,000 in taxes... it is basically legal government theft. The government just takes a chunk of the equity in your home. Pigs... try Connecticut, the taxes are 75% LOWER. ... more

Paul Marzolla answered:
I'm sorry to hear whoever you spoke with at Chase completely misinformed you. I've helped clients use this great loan program for basic repairs to full blown renovations and everything in between. There are also conventional programs which could help eliminate mortgage insurance to make your renovation costs most affordable. This is one of my specialties and I'd be more than happy to tell you all about the available programs so we can best determine which makes most financial sense. Please contact me at your earliest convenience so I can gain a clearer snapshot of your scenario and the work you're looking to complete.

Kindest regards,
