Since 1997 Home sellers are eligible to exclude up to $250,000 if single or up to $500,000 if married, of the capital gain on the sale of their residence. In order to be able to claim the entire exclusion, the home seller must have owned and resided in his home for at least two years of the last five years prior to the sale of the residence. If eligible for the inclusion, it may be claimed once every two years. ... more

One concern with having a buyers agent is that that the seller's broker is less motivated to close the deal due to the expected commission split.

In Manhattan, the best family destinations are the Upper East Side, West Side, Gramercy and neighborhoods within those greater parts, like Yorkville, Sutton, Lenox Hill, etc..

My guess is the beach...? or the proximity of this portion to the beach. It may be one of those things like "yorkville" and the "upper east side" or "lenox Hill" these are not interchangable, but are included in the same area of the "upper east side" ... more

This is totally a personal decision for all persons involved.It all depends on what you are looking for...Southampton is a great place to live and work.I have been here for 12 years as a full time resident, and I love it here.I lived in Manhattan for 25 years,then moved out east,the best thing I have ever done in my life.Southampton is a year round community,everything stays open,so there is always something to do.Some people may say East Hampton or West Hampton are wonderful as well....They are.....It's all a matter of opinion. ... more

Windsor terrace is an awesome little Brooklyn 'hood that is pretty tough to get into. Case in point, it is boxed in on all four sides. So unlike many other brooklyn neighborhoods, like Park Slope - it can't "grow" like the blob and encompass more blocks. To one side greenwood cemetery, to the other Prospect park, then Ft. Hamilton Parkway up to PPW - that's it! It is a golden area near the aprk with cool homes, trees, little parks within it, and prospect park on your doorstep...love this area. ... more

It's more like a young hipster/artist area, but there are lot's of new condos coming up that are definitely targeting a more "financially established" market. While prices are lower than Manhattan, you will still be paying a premium for anything close to Bedford (the main strip), or the first few stops on the "L". ... more

It's really great!

I lived there shortly after graduating from college, and it remains one of my favorite places in New York.

By far the greatest advantage is living close to Prospect Park. The neighbourhood overall has a very relaxed feel to it, and it is really fun to come back to at night after a fast paces day in the city. Transportation is also pretty good, especially on towards Prospect Heights where you can catch the Q. ... more

Maybe if you look like Sean there! Look cabbies go to Brooklyn - when they are going off work, or if the cab happens to be downtown and on their way there anyway... the way to get a cab to go where you need to go is to JUMP IN! never tell them where you are going until you are inside - it is illegal fo rthem to ask and they can get fined - also if a can ever passes you by, and it clearly is not empty and you feel slighted, you SHOULD REPORT THEM!! link below!! ... more

Washington Heights is definitely a Manhattan neighborhood. It runs from West 157 St to W 194 St and then becomes Inwood. Two trains are running there. The A train which runs express and brings you in 25 min. To Mid Town Manhattan and the # 1 Trains that runs local all the way. Plenty busses as well. ... more

The Upper West Side is really a great area. Great atmosphere and so many great restaurants. Not to mention the night life..... The UWS in my opinion is a hip yet mature place to be. It is really changing by the day with the additions of all the new development condos going up especially near the Riverside Drive area. That place is a meca of ultra luxury super high end condo. I am not too sure if Jerry Seinfield lives in the UWS but I do remember watching something on the E! Channel stating he has a multi car garage and condo somewhere in the village. sorry for not being so exact.... ... more
