Hi answered:
auction not a good deal
its not true
silent bidders
bid up the price
maybe you save 10-15% of already too high retail price
then you pay 10% comission to the auction company
in my opinon
beware of auction


good luck

Bill Carroll answered:
The most interesting residential architecture in the city of Syracuse would be in the Sedgwick Farms neighborhood (off James St.), the Strathmore neighborhood (West side of city) and the East side of the city (Scottholm, Bradford Heights area). Some of the best historic architecture was along James St. and was lost to 60's office building development. There are also some amazing old mansions from the victorian era along W. Onondaga St.. If you are willing to look a bit further out, the towns of Cazenovia and Skaneateles have some wonderful and in tact old homes. I found Cazenovia to be the most cohesive old village with working farms, an in tact main street and Norman Rockwell charm (and a lake!)- just 30 min. from downtown Syracuse. If you would like any additional information on any of these areas, and pricing information, let me know. ... more

Dear Victor,
I am a associate broker with Syracuse Realty Goup. Our company is a small indeprendent company whose primary focus is on development, commercial and investment properties. We work with bank foreclosures as well. You have requested a lot of information which I would be happy to provide, Destiny has not yet "arrived" in Syracuse. It has been an on-going struggle for quite some time now. It has affected property values upward and then when it didn't move along as expected, they tended to stagnant for some time. Areas around Syracuse University have a good return on their investement, but also are more costly to purchase. If you would like more information on this area, I would be more than happy to work with you. I have worked with buyers not only from the UK, but from Australia as well. Please feel free to e-mail me at or give me a call at 315-664-0714. I look forward to communicating with you.

Holly Grigaitis answered:
If your current agent works hard, you already have a good the seller, you are his or her greatest critic!!! You did not mention his or her experience, so I am assuming they are not brand new. Even though the company maybe new, most likely, the broker or other agents have had prior experience before opening this company. My cuurent company is only 2.5 years old, but we have well over a 100 years of experience in our area, and we are one of the top five selling companies in our region. Another company in the area has also come to the area as a newcomer and that company is also one of the top five.
Suggestions- Ask them to be completely honest with you about the reasons your house has not sold before you start interviewing other agents Tell them you truly want an honest evaluation as to why it hasn't sold and go from there. Average market time for properties typically mean a house will be on the market for about 6 months, if you are expecting results quicker than this, it may be a wee bit unrealistic, unless you are fortunate enough to be in a market with quicker absorption. As far as finding a good experience agent, ask your friends, neighbors or other respected professionals in your community who they may recommend, surf local real estate sites and research them yourself...but beware of sites that claim to have an "approved list of professionals" Their screening process and selection method is usually dependent on whether or not that agent has sent them a check.
