Our Seller (in which her other home is already in transaction and will be closing soon) wanted to purchase something in NY City for over 2 years. She tried working with many agents but they couldn’t negotiate and get the best deal for her. After speaking with us, we took on the job of finding her the best condo in the city at 1619 3rd Avenue.
The team handled all the details and a few weeks later we closed!

Many experts have been calling upon home builders to ramp up construction to help with the lack of existing inventory for sale. For the past two months, new home sales have surged, with July's total coming in at the highest since October 2007. The latest estimates from the US Census Bureau and Department of Housing and Urban Development show that sales in July were 31.3% higher than this time last year, and 12.4% higher than last month, at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 654,000. Zillow's Chief Economist, Svenja Gudell, echoed the reaction of some as she commented:
"July('s) new home sales data was a surprise, but a welcome one. For years, the market has been practically begging builders to both ramp up their efforts overall and to put more focus on serving the less expensive end of the market. Today's data confirms both are happening in earnest."
The National Association of Home Builder's (NAHB) Chairman, Ed Brady, didn't seem as surprised:
"This rise in new home sales is consistent with our builders' reports that market conditions have been improving. As existing home inventory remains flat, we should see more consumers turning to new construction."
NAHB's Chief Economist, Robert Dietz, believes this is just the start for new home sales if market conditions continue:
"July's positive report shows there is a need for new single-family homes, buoyed by increased household formation, job gains and attractive mortgage rates. This uptick in demand should translate into increased housing production throughout 2016 and into next year."
The existing home sales numbers for July will be released today and will shed more light on the overall health of the housing market.
New home sales hit their highest mark in over 9 years. Buyers are out in force to find a home that fits their needs. Many are turning to new construction, as the inventory of existing homes has not been able to keep up with demand.

Recent research by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) examined certain red flags that caused the housing crisis in 2005, and then compared them to today's real estate market. Today, we want to concentrate on four of those red flags.
"Loose credit was one of the main culprits of the housing crisis. Mortgage lending expanded dramatically as unhealthy housing speculation reached its peak and was met by the highest level of credit availability as measured by the Mortgage Bankers Association. The index measures the overall mortgage credit condition by the share of home sales financed by mortgages. This metric does not capture credit quality, but it does set a view of the importance of financing in supporting the housing market."
House flipping was rampant in 2005. As NAR's research points out:
"Heightened flipping activity is a clear indication of speculation in the real estate market. A property is considered as a speculative flip if the property is sold twice within 12 months and with positive profit. Flipping is a normal part of a healthy housing market. In an inflated housing market, expectations about short-term profit from pure price appreciation are very high; therefore, the level of flipping activity would show evidence of being heightened."
Here are the categories with percentages reflecting the unrealistic ratios & numbers of 2005 as compared to the current market. Remember, a negative percentage reflects a positive gain for the market.
They say hindsight is 20/20... Today, experts are keeping a close watch on the potential red flags that went unnoticed in 2005.
Have you ever been flipping through the channels, only to find yourself glued to the couch in an HGTV 'show hole'*? We've all been there... watching entire seasons of "Love it or List it," "Fixer Upper," "House Hunters," "Flip or Flop," "Property Brothers," and so many more, just in one sitting. When you're in the middle of your real estate themed show marathon, you might start to think that everything you see on TV must be how it works in real life, but you may need a reality check.
Reality TV Show Myths vs. Real Life:
Myth #1: Buyers look at 3 homes and make a decision to purchase one of them.
Truth: There may be buyers who fall in love and buy the first home they see, but more often than not the process of buying a home means touring more than three homes.
Myth #2: The houses the buyers are touring are still for sale.
Truth: The reality is being staged for TV. Many of the homes being shown are already sold and are off the market.
Myth #3: The buyers haven't made a purchase decision yet.
Truth: Since there is no way to show the entire buying process in a 30-minute show, TV producers often choose buyers who are further along in the process and have already chosen a home to buy.
Myth #4: If you list your home for sale, it will ALWAYS sell at the Open House.
Truth: Of course this would be great! Open Houses are important to guarantee the most exposure to buyers in your area, but are only a PIECE of the overall marketing of your home. Just realize that many homes are sold during regular listing appointments as well.
Myth #5: Homeowners make a decision about selling their home after a 5-minute conversation.
Truth: Similar to the buyers portrayed on the shows, many of the sellers have already spent hours deliberating the decision to list their home and move on with their life/goals.
Bottom LineHaving an experienced professional on your side while navigating the real estate market is the best way to guarantee that you can make the home of your dreams a reality! *Show Hole - A side effect of binge-watching. Symptoms include a sense of emptiness and depression brought on by realizing you just wasted a good portion of your life watching several seasons of a TV show or an entire movie franchise all at once when you could have managed your time better.
We just SOLD our clients Coop last week and this week we closed on their new home! It wasn’t easy and nothing easy is worth it all. It takes proper dedication, precision and team work! We are also proud of Kavita for making this happen! Awesome work! It’s not just about selling and buying homes, it’s about helping people move on to the next chapter of their lives! #closed #nyreex #newhome #homesold #realestate #soldanotherhome #dreamhome #changinglives #expertadviser
This was an unusual sale as there were some "challenges" like permits and oil tank repairs that needs to be fixed. It took a bit longer however with a dedicated team following up and staying on top of things we were finally able to close! Very thankful for an amazing team and last but not the least, to our seller for choosing and trusting our services in the sale of her home!
This housing market has many people talking about home values; where they are and where they are headed. It's also interesting to look back and see how home prices compare to values prior to the housing crisis. Every quarter, Freddie Mac releases their House Price Index. The index usually provides monthly home values for:
The homeowner is a business man. He first tried to sell his property himself like most of the #fsbo do. Unfortunately he was unsuccessful so he finally decided to look for an agent to get the job done.
It was the perfect time when we reached out to him as he already interviewed 5 agents but wasn’t contented as they were just showing the least commitment and basic Markets, Put it on #mls and pray it sell. They suggested listing it at a very small price! This was very unique property it was 70% down and new buyer still need to at $60k to $100k of work . Thinking out side box We came up with a unique marketing strategy and the system we have in place to get to the sold table. So we put a marketing plan that will attract buyers to put the work in as that is our “Avatar”. Long story short, the property went on the market and sold for 50-100k more than what the previous agents quoted the Seller.
“In this market you can’t do average, you need an Expert!” -Said the seller at closing.
Thank you to our Seller “Jon” for giving us the opportunity in proving as well as helping sell your home. we are more than happy and it is our pleasure to provide you with our service.
When we reached out to our seller “John” from Maryland. He said he needed to sell quick for the highest price possible which is usually what all sellers want. The property is in his mother’s name and he didn’t want to go back and forth to New York as to why he needed an agent that would handle the whole process. So then we got hired and we get to work asap!
We got him in touch with our top attorney and put the property up on the market. Within just a short period of time we had showings being scheduled and days after multiple offers came in and had to do a highest and best!
Everyone on the team played an important role when the board and management took a very long time to get us to the closing table. Every day we got to follow up with the attorney, the board and management until we have finally recorded!
Thank you to everyone who was involved our attorney Michele Tombini and the whole NYREEX team for doing a great job! And lastly to our seller for believing in our services to sell your home for top dollar!
Many people wonder whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home or if they should first try to go it on their own. In today's market: you need an experienced professional!
You Need an Expert Guide if You Are Traveling a Dangerous Path
The field of real estate is loaded with land mines. You need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a home that is priced appropriately and ready for you to move in to can be tricky. An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift through the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your "dream home." A great agent will also have relationships with mortgage professionals and other experts that you will need in securing your dream home.
You Need a Skilled Negotiator
In today's market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars. Each step of the way - from the original offer, to the possible renegotiation of that offer after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal - you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes. Realize that when an agent is negotiating their commission with you, they are negotiating their own salary; the salary that keeps a roof over their family's head; the salary that puts food on their family's table. If they are quick to take less when negotiating for themselves and their families, what makes you think they will not act the same way when negotiating for you and your family? If they were Clark Kent when negotiating with you, they will not turn into Superman when negotiating with the buyer or seller in your deal.
Famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money...not cost you money.
