Buyer No Nos

Often when I'm showing and/or listing property I educate my client on being careful what they share in front of a buyer, seller or even a seller's agent.  So today, I saw this article from Inman and thought my readers would enjoy reading more on this topic. There is some great information in this article. Give it a read and I really think you'll learn something valuable.

There are countless things not to say but here are a few ...

  1. I love it; it's perfect !
  2. That __________ is hideous !
  3. This home is way overpriced !
  4. Why is the seller moving ?
  5. What are the neighbors like?
  6. Will the seller take X price

Want to know more?  Click on the article below ... It's a good read.   

As the song goes ... "You got to know when to hold em" ...

Condo or Townhouse What is the Difference between the two?


Eagle Ridge Condos | The Hamlets in Winter 

EAGLE RIDGE THE HAMLETS in Winter
What's the difference between a condo and a townhouse?

GREAT QUESTION!  It basically has to do with the "type of ownership".

The following explanations are excerpted from: www.homeguides.sfgate.com

The difference between townhouse and condo insurance deal with how the properties are owned. A townhouse is legally different from a condo in the way owners hold title to the land beneath their units. Typically, townhouse owners own the land beneath their units, while condominium owners own the air space in their units and own the land collectively with the other condo owners in the complex.   

Townhome Insurance: covers the unit and any outdoor areas that the owner has the title to. This includes the exterior, interior, and any patio or balcony areas. The policy covers fire damage and some storm damage. Flood or earthquake insurance is generally optional and requires a separate rider. Storm damage outside of flooding is almost always part of the general policy for townhouse owners. Unlike condo owners, who do not own the land beneath their units individually, townhouse owners need liability protection for accidents on their property, whether it is inside or out.

Condo Insurance: Covers the buildings and the land on which the complex sits on and is carried by the condominium association, not the individual condo owner.

HEAD OVER HERE TO MY ROCKLAND CONDO SEARCH PAGE.  Happy Browsing.  Reach out to me if/when you'd like to tour.  Remember to have your financing in place.  You'll need a "pre-approval" to bid.

Nanuet Apartment Complex sells for $147 Million

Do you remember when Avalon Gardens was first built? I do. I admit that I was very disappointed that Rockland County was not getting newer condos for PURCHASE. We sorely need new housing in this area. After a while Avalon Gardens became The Eaves and as you can read below, Eaves has now been sold. Eaves is located within a stones throw of Costco and Lowes in Nanuet and is very popular among renters. Many people rent there who are either downsizing or it is a first stop for young buyers before their first home or condo purchase in Rockland.

Nanuet Aparment Complex sells for big dollars

The article states that "demand for well-located, value-added multi-housing continues to be very strong - especially in high-income sub-markets like Nanuet" .... Well that is certainly the truth.  I and many of my clients wish we had MORE units for purchase.  Our baby boomer buyers and older adults are desperately looking for quality housing that is affordable, nicely appointed with units on one level, AND centrally located near shopping and restaurants where they could walk to everything. 

Rockland County has its fair share of Senior Adults (including Boomers) who long for smaller QUALITY homes to purchase.  Many people, sadly, have to leave the county, their family, long time friends, houses of worship and their medical care professionals to find an affordable place to live out their senior years.

Toll Brothers and DelWeb - We NEED YOU in Rockland County NY !

FHA financing restrictions eased as new law is enacted

Is your condo development FHA approvedHave you ever tried to buy a condo in your favorite neighborhood only to have it "shot down" for FHA financing? Here's hope for a change to all that.

HR 3700 - A new law signed by President Obama

Major highlights are the bill will make FHA's re-certification process "substantially less burdensome" and will lower FHA's owner-occupancy requirement from 50 percent to 35%. The bill also required the FHA t replace an existing policy on transfer fees with a less restrictive model that has already been in place at the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

To learn more about this exciting development, click on the image below or CLICK HERE.

    • Owner Occupancy
    • Private Transfer Fees 
    • Commercial Space 
    • Board re-certifications streamlined and amended


New FHA Condo Bill Signed into Law
