Have Questions About the Basic Star Program?
New York State wants everyone to reapply for the Basic Star Exemption. You must reapply by December 31st, 2013 or you will not get your basic property tax deduction for 2014. I would not like to see anyone lose out on this. Some folks receive $1,200 a year off their property taxes.

century 21 aa realty: Going, Going......Gone! - 04/04/13 03:45 AM

Going, Going......Gone!
These are the three words I am using to describe the Long Island Real Estate Market. Homes come on the market, then they go off the market. Bidding wars are upon us, buyers are becoming upset at losing "the one" and are realizing the tables have turned and it is now a seller's market.
Housing prices have not come up yet but they will sooner than later and mortgage rates are slowly rising. This is why buyers are out trying to buy a home. These smart buyers know prices and rates will rise and want to buy … (9 comments)

This is The 21st Century and I Cannot Believe We Have To Have This TalkToday I informed someone that lives near one of my listings that we have a buyer. She wanted me to let her know so I did. I was met with a question I cannot answer by law and morally I wouldn't answer anyway.I was asked if the buyer was of a certain ethnic group. Told the person that I cannot answer that question because the law prohibits me from doing so. Besides, is it really that important? Why should it be? What is the difference?

century 21 aa realty: Lindenhurst NY Home Buying - Sitting on the Fence Hurts - 08/01/12 03:37 PM
Lindenhurst NY Home Buying - Sitting on the Fence Hurts
I am finding the majority of buyers are preapproved for a mortgage from $200,000 to $300,000. With only 30 homes on the market in Lindenhurst NY in that price range, sitting on the fence hurts. I hear buyers saying that the good ones are going fast and they are!
Why? 30 homes is not a lot to choose from especially if you are not handy or you do not know anyone who is. And, all of those 30 homes are short sales. A lot of them need work. Short sales are … (3 comments)

Have You Ever Flown 25 Kites? Get A Kite Train!
Talk about different. This kite train has 25 small, lightweight kites on one line. Only needs light wind at 3 mph or more. Getting them up is easy. Getting them down takes two people because you have to bring in one kite at a time while keeping each one neatly behind the others. While doing this, you have to make sure the strings do not get tangled. Took about 5 minutes to get the kites down. It was a lot of fun. We took the kite train to the Venetian Shores … (10 comments)

Long Island NY Buyers - Why Are You Doing Your Agent's Job?
When you hire a Long Island NY agent to help you find a home, they are supposed to help you, not have you do their job.
I received a call from a very nice buyer on one of my listings. I asked who their agent is. Their agent is a family member. The buyer had said "I feel bad for my agent because they live 45 minutes away". And?
When you sign the Buyer Brokerage Agreement, your agent has to call my office or myself to make the … (9 comments)
