Hi everyone, these are the numbers for the current active listings (homes that are currently for sale) in Rockland County NY. This is for residential homes and condominiums according to the Greater Hudson Valley MLS. As you can see inventory is still high in this area and these numbers do not include homes that are not listed in the MLS like “for sale by owners”

 

With interest rates so low and inventory so high it’s a great time to buy a house in

Rockland, so come on buyers lets go shopping!

Hi everyone, I am writing this post because of something that I think needs to be said…

I went out this week to preview a house that is for sale in New City, NY (a hamlet of Rockland County, NY), this house just happens to also be a short sale. When I got to the house and went in all I saw was clothes, dirty dishes, and clutter EVERYWHERE. I couldn’t believe my eyes, how do they expect to sell this house? It being a  short sale means they are probably in a hurry to sell, so why not clean up? This is a problem their agent should have addressed and helped them with. I’m sure this house will remain un-sold until some major cleaning happens.

I know that sometimes a homeowner cannot afford to pay for repairs on the home they’re selling but some things just have to happen, like minor repairs and simply cleaning up. I am so glad that I previewed it before showing it to my client; I saved myself from a very awkward situation.    

If you’re interested in selling your house and are a little overwhelmed please contact me at the number listed at the bottom of this post and I will give you my professional opinion on how to get it sold.

 

See you next time 🙂
