Many of you may be renting and would love to have the ability to control the heat – instead of feeling as though your living in a cold stone house.  I guess the Flinstones didn’t mind!shoe-house-james-gordon

Others may want to go from their started home to a bit larger home to accommodate their growing family or to start a family.  I’ve been there – feeling like the old woman, living in a shoe filled with children!  For years I waited to be able to move to a larger home since we had 5 growing children.  I knew it would be difficult for us to afford a larger home in Harrison, NY – so, we made the best decision of our lives – to do the commute up and down I-684 and move to New Fairfield, Connecticut!

House Hunting in Westchester County

I have been assisting First Time Home Buyers who are looking in different towns in Westchester County, a perfect middle in-between New York City and the country in upstate New York

Last week we viewed a townhouse in Rye, NY – a home in Scarsdale, NY – and then moved onto another home and townhouse in Pelham, NY.  All of these towns and streets we passed to get to our designation, brought back early memories of when I lived in Westchester – growing up in Mount Vernon, NY and then moving to Harrison, NY. 

I am very fortunate to have these wonderful memories and I am always anxious to assist buyers in their search to begin their memories.  Also, it’s always a pleasure working with 1st time home buyers who are currently renting and now have the opportunity to stop handing over a check to their landlord and saying good-bye to their money – FOREVER!

When owning your own home, over time you may build equity into the home and it can be the single biggest tax break available.  And don’t forget – YOU control the heat, YOU get to remodel and decorate it with YOUR style inside and out!
