Hi Thomas,

You're absolutely correct. Even if there are house rules for condos & co-ops that prohibit dogs, they cannot discriminate based on handicap. Service dogs must be allowed, just as they are in hotels, restaurants, etc.

If there's an interview process, they may want to meet your dog as well as you, but they can't tell you that you can't have your service dog with you in your home.

Most flat fee listings I see instruct people to call the homeowner. In these cases the "listing agent" doesn't do any representing at all, of buyers OR sellers. There are flat fee companies that actually show the home to buyers? ... more

You would need to look at condo's as opposed to Co-ops as most co-op will not allow renting, or they will only let you rent for a limited amount of time then the owner would need to occupy again. I would be happy to send you listings that would work for you. Please either e-mail me or call and I can get started w/the search.

Thank you,

Hi, A seller can ask whatever they want for a property at times disregarding the sold comps. That doesn't mean that it will sell for the higher price. The three main factors to consider when pricing are location, condition, and size. Some sellers renovate or upgrade and try to recoup, there are various scenarios. As a buyers agent I like to attach a CMA to an offer so the listing agent and seller understand our reasoning.

Sincerely,

Hi Kim, actually these days you can find a home in that range in White Plains but it will be in some sort of Foreclosure or Short Sale status. In order to secure on of these homes you should have an agent that has experise in these types of homes. The process can be lengthy and strenuous so doing it alone can make it worse.

Christopher Pagli answered:
Hi, Typically basements should only be calculated in the square footage if they are finished, heated, living space and also have a CO. The same goes for attic space. Now that doesn't mean the information you are reading follows that rule so you may have to inquire with the agent that posted it.

Hi, White Plains is absolutely feasible. White Plains has become the City away from the City. The wide variety of shopping, fabulous restaurants, and the walkability to public transportation and shops is one of the reasons many flock here. We have a Stop & Shop and Wholefoods centrally located to many residences. Now the main factor is what you are looking to purchase, a condo, coop, or single family. Some areas of White Plains are not walkable to the train and markets, etc. I would be able to assist you more efficiently with your search criteria. For example...I have a beautifully updated 2 bedroom condo located on 21 Lake St for sale. You can view the listing here on Trulia or visit my website which is below.

you have to check the actual terms, but generally a exclusive agency allows you to sell or rent on your own. An exclusive right means that there will be a fee or commission paid regardless.

Best of luck

Joerg,

I am an Associate Broker based in the White Plains office of Houlihan Lawrence and am very familiar with the area. I work with sellers who look to sell and/or rent their homes and I also work with buyers in their home search.
In general the psychology in the market has been improving and there are many buyers and renters looking. However, buyers are very astute to today's market conditions. Therefore, pricing your home for rent or sale correctly and getting the maximum market exposure is critical. Also, your motivation is also essential in our ability to do a successful job for you.

I would be happy to meet and provide a competitive pricing evaluation so you can make an educated decision as to how you should proceed whether you do it on your own or with a realtor.

Hi Lisa,

I specialize in White Plains (born, raised & work in White Plains, NY).

Much of White Plains was built in the 1920s-1930s. Most of these properties are colonial homes and are located in many different neighborhoods that range from the low to the high end price ranges. I'll pass on addressing your "ethnic communities" part of your question (Realtors have to be careful how they discuss ethnic, racial, religious, school related topics). For now I would simply state that White Plains is a very diverse community and all neighborhoods are mixed. Feel free to visit my profile to learn how you can contact me directly should you wish to speak to me any further regarding your current home buying/selling needs. ... more
