You need to speak with licensed contractors. Contributors who reply here are realtors & lenders. We don't have knowledge of this area.

You can just contact Trulia, explain to them the discrepancy and they will correct it, they had one of my listings with incorrect days on market data as well as being recorded as a foreclosure sale - I sent them an email and they corrected the information by the end of the day! Good luck!

Generally in Suffolk County it's going to refer to a second kitchen on a lower level often times near the access to the yard.

That price is a touch high for 2400 SF in St. James. You should be able to get 2800 SF - 3000 SF for that price - try to negotiate him down a bit or get more SF. I am an Agent who lives on the next street from Sunny Rd. and know it very well.

I have three children who graduated from Smithtown High School and all went on to study at excellent (Ivy league) universities. They were well prepared at Smithtown. We found the teachers and staff to be excellent, supporting and very involved. There were plenty of challenging (AP level) classes, and activities and events coordinated to whatever level the children required. The support staff was excellent and cutting edge. I have never felt that Smithtown lacked anything that any other district on LI offered. It was always available for the students to be as involved as they wanted to be. The district is very competitive in the Intel and Siemens competitions, Business DECA competitions, Model UN programs, music and NYSMA programs, National Merit Scholarship programs, and other national competitions that you read about in the newspapers. In addition, there were always opportunities for extra help, or disabled services if the need arose. The district as a whole is extremely accommodating, which is not always the case in a large district. I highly recommend the Smithtown School District. ... more

Just to set the record straight, This house was recently relisted on 3/2012 at $300,000 "as is"and has been vacant since 11/2008. It was a short sale back in 2008 with Washington Mutual who collapsed & a short sale could not be completed back then.

Chase took over from Washington Mutual but could never foreclose on the home since they never had the proper paper work. So in 4/2012 a buyer went into contract & a deal was negotiated with Chase to purchase the house at $290,000. The home closed on 9/25/12.

It's no wonder why your offers wern't accepted. Your agent works the area and knows the market. If you truly want to purchase a home you might want to take her advice. Put yourself in the sellers shoes, would you take an offer 10-20% less than what you are asking or wait until a better offer came along? I think most sellers would wait. If your price range is 10-20% below the homes you are putting offers on, you may want to search for homes that are "listed" 10-20% lower than the homes you have been putting offers on. ... more

What a great family to be so supportive. Holding the mortgage in your names will save enormous costs at closing and the rates are so amazing that once your daughter is in a position to take on the responsibility herself she can finance the property herself and shop the best rates and best closing costs....since I don't know what the reason is for your daughter not financing On her own, I am only coming to the conclusion that at this time it might not be an option, but being in 2012 when rates are amazing and if her credit is good she can finance it later and in the mean time your interest savings might be a moot point if she is able to finance this on her own within the next few years. ... more

This was a great value for the purchaser who was fortunate to buy this lovely home. This was a bank owned home utilities were not on and that is scary for many buyers as a home inspection can only tell you so much if there is no electric or water and heat running. I am sure that contributed to the length of time on the market as well as the taxes being over $21K. Great deal since the assessment is well over $850K. ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
Can I ask why you are looking for the agent or office who sells the most in St. James? I'm not a Realtor, but I can say that from what I've seen in my years, it's not always the agent or office who sells the most that turns out to be the best fit for you as a seller or buyer.

I mean if you're looking to buy, you can hook up with an agent who is a top producer, but maybe that agent si far too busy to give you the service and attention that an average producing agen can give you, and still both know their market and business well enough to get the job done!

Sorry if I went a totally different direction with this...

Whether or not the court will hold an inexperienced owner to the same standard as a real estate pro I couldn't possibly say, but if neither a buyer, not a seller hired a professional agent, who would (amongst other things) make sure that material facts would be disclosed, then the buyer can't be completely surprised when they don't get them. Doesn't make it right, but it might explain why you needed to spend $425 and lots of time jumping through hoops only to lose everything and have to start again. My guess is that you are now buying the second home through an agent. Regardless, I wish you a straightforward and flawless transaction. ... more
