Swim Across America 2019

July 27th, 2019 marked the 27th year of this wonderful Swim Across America event. So many participants helping to raise money towards fighting cancer. As of writing this post $1,054,318 has been raised to-date.

“Proceeds from the swims will support immunotherapy research at the Swim Across America Laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, pediatric oncology research at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian and patient services with Cancer Support Team.”

Held at the Larchmont Yacht Club, the volunteers arrived from 4 am onward.  I was asked to arrive at 5 so I was more fortunate! It was wonderful to see the sun rise, and to be involved of so much caring, sharing and fun! Swimmers of all ages (the youngest swimming in a pool ), and in the Long Island Sound with kayakers shepherding them in case someone needs assistance.

“Since 1987, SAA has granted over $80 million through 20 experiential open water swimming fundraising events and over 100 pool swim fundraisers.”

What can I say.

 

Larchmont is GREAT!

Maureen King – Making a Difference towards Ending Cancer

Each year, Maureen King – the Manager of Weichert Realtors has a  “Summer Kick -off and barbecue event with the proceeds going towards one of her favorite charities – “The American Cancer Society.” So much effort went into the event which was held on June 26th,  that I had to post a few words to both thank Maureen, Matt, and their dedicated helpers who must have spent the entire day setting up or this lovely evening and event. Gift baskets galore, wonderful raffles to many local restaurants who willingly donated their wares to aid in the event.

Maureen had prepared pulled pork, baked beans, and there were hot dogs, fried chicken, salads, watermelon  and an ice cream truck too! The entire evening was a wonderful festive event, and it was so nice to network with fellow real estate agents and friends.  Judging on the number of people present, and the brisk sale of raffle tickets, I think we can call it a great success.

I also won a raffle which was sort of nice too! A picnic basket!

Thank you Maureen for a wonderful evening!

Larchmont is GREAT!

Real Estate Market Stats Six Months Ending June 30th, 2019 Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School Area 10543

While I have posted a blog about the 2019 real estate market in general ending on June 30th, I also wanted to post the homes sold in the different Elementary School Districts for a better appreciation of the different areas, different price points.

The stats are referencing absorption rates. We always refer to absorption rates as being an indicator of the current real estate market, and we define that market as either, negative, positive or balanced. A balanced market would be 5-6 month of inventory, a seller’s market would be under 4 month, and a buyer’s market would be over 6 months. More homes, more competition for sellers, greater advantage for buyers.

Here are the market stats for the Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School District in Mamaroneck, New York 10543:

10 Reasons to Purchase 9 The Serpentine in New Rochelle 10801

New Rochelle has a beautiful historic district that was commonly known as the “Gold Coast’ back in the turn of the century. It was close to the city, and way back then, you could buy a home from anywhere from $3-5000! But what gorgeous homes! Victorian homes, Antebellum Mansions, Colonials, Tudor homes and all with such rich architectural  detailing not found in today’s homes.

One home, built later in 1938 but located in Rochelle Park, was originally built with a barrel roof, a huge fireplace, and the original kitchen was on a lower floor which accessed a private courtyard,  with the two bedrooms, living room on the first floor. The living room was HUGE with a dramatic high ceiling and unique chandelier. The owners decided to totally renovate the home back in 2014, and enlarged the home to feature 4 bedrooms, a kitchen with granite counters (now located on the first floor),  3 full bathrooms, new roof, beautiful hardwood floors throughout the first floor, and a deck overlooking the courtyard along with a charming pergola with a bench that is nestled amidst lush flowers and plantings. The property boasts 0.47 of an acre too!

With the new increased New York City Mansion tax, and Transfer tax, it just makes sense to purchase a home in Westchester that doesn’t require those taxes!

Ten reasons to purchase this home?

  1. It is located just over a mile from New Rochelle’s vibrant downtown.
  2.  Just 30 minutes from New York City
  3. It has 0.47 acres –
  4. Totally rebuilt in 2014
  5.  Central Air Conditioning
  6.  Granite counters in the open kitchen
  7.  Neighborhood Tennis courts!
  8.  Neighborhood Association
  9.  A private courtyard
  10.  TAXES ARE JUST $20,184 before the STAR discount if eligible

“Unique charm & character await you in this completely renovated (2014) 4 bedroom, 3 bath 2428 sq. foot expanded craftsman style cottage in New Rochelle’s Historic District. The open floor plan with its hardwood floors will delight, featuring a beautiful new kitchen, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and family area, leading to the living room with its original huge fireplace.

There will be an open house on Sunday July 14th from 2-4  p.m. Come and visit. You will love it! This home is being offered at $749,000.

New Rochelle is GREAT!
