Most of the time, any street flooding due to high tides, occurs south of Atlantic Avenue. It varies from street to street. Street flooding rarely involves basement flooding. That's on a house to house basis. (Many houses in the waterfront area do not have basements.)
During Hurricane Sandy, the most recent storm, flooding occurred in places that never flooded before. That includes north of Atlantic Avenue on Guy Lombardo Avenue. Again, some basements flooded and some did not.
Why do you ask? Are you considering buying or renting a home in South Freeport? If you want to talk to me about homes in Freeport (or anywhere on the south shore of Nassau County) please give me a call at 516-410-3000 and I will be happy to tell you anything you want to know about a neighborhood. (By the way, as a Buyer's Agent I represent YOU, not the seller, so I can provide a lot of information that the seller's agent cannot.)

Yes it does. It all depends. Location and size of lot will need to be factored in as well.

Hi Bgitarts. Based on the information you stated, I believe it means that the property was conveyed (transferred) back from the previous Homeowner to the Lending Institution, or Government (depending on what type of repossession). This means know that it is BANK or GOVERNMENT OWNED. Is there a date next to this? Is this the most recent transaction? If so, it simply means that the property was transferred to that party.

I hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions regarding this matter, or any other matter concerning your home search, I am at your service.


Wishing you the best of luck,

That's a loaded question. It depends if you are talking just modernizing, or structural changes. Also depends on how many baths kitchen size materials that you will use and a whole lot more. Bathrooms run about 10 to 12 thousand for average renovation. Kitchen can be 15 to 30 thousand for average. You should get a contractor in there to get an accurate idea of cost ... more

Usually the seller pays for the Transfer Tax, unless you are buying a foreclosed property, than the bank will impose the transfer tax on you - the buyer.
In Nassau County the Transfer Tax is $4 per $1,000; thus if you are buying home for $300,000, the Transfer Tax would be $1,200.

There are no set standards as to how much below list to offer--in order to determine a fair offer review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and go from there. Keep in mind that if a property is listed on target, multiple offers may and do occur...... ... more

Call the management Company which should be listed with phone number on the listing sheet and ask for a copy of the co-op house rules for you to inspect. You can also ask for the financials. You should not have to wait until you are in contract. Need a good agent. Visit my web site PaulMVPteam.com. ... more

If you look up specific properties on mynassauproperty.com and go tot he property taxes tab, select 2008 you will find the current town and school taxes for that home. On the bottom of the page it will tell you if there are additional village taxes.

Let me know if I can be of any help to you.
