Hello Andre. The Port Jeff area is one of my area of expertise. You can e-mail me and I would be happy to send you a report on home sales & prices within the last year. Generally, all across Long Island, Home Prices & Home Sales are slightly increasing. As for taxes anywhere, taxes usually climb a little every year. You could check out or to check out general tax rates in the area. In addition, you could call the local assessor's office and find out more about if tax rates are expected to change.

I hope this answered your questions.

Wishing you the best of luck,

From your description; I would bet that you are describing a Foreclosed (REO) house:

On that assumption; you probably have seen the catch-phrase "AS-IS" which the Banks use a lot.
Sometimes, we can get the Bank to make SCHEDULE 1 repairs, which are safety/habitability issues; like mold, termite infestation, roof leak, etc.
But the Banks will refuse to put any more money into the "PIT".

They will price the house to reflect the work it needs: Do not think that the house is worth the LISTING PRICE minus the repairs and upgrades; the bank knows what work is needed.

Have your Realtor do a good CMA to determine the Market Value which should take the Condition into consideration.

Good luck and may God bless

It's hard to say without knowing the timeline of the transaction. Was there a final acceptance date? My advice would consult a attorney that specializes in real estate law. Sorry, I don't really give legal advice. Good luck to you and hopefully everything works out for you. ... more

Are you sure you have the house number correct? 202 Hawthorne Street shows no history at all of being on the market.
