We need inventory! Strike while the iron is hot….

There are 20 single family homes on the Greenwich MLS between $500K and $900K that are in contract. There are only 47 single family homes in active listings within the same price range. Overall there are presently 71 single family homes on the GMLS that are in contract with over 500 active listings. This shows that in the lower bracket, there is a huge need for inventory…

Last week, I got yet another phone call from someone who was inquiring about an old listing from 2010! The conversation started on a pleasant note when this person at the other end of the line wanted information about one of my former listings that I had once posted on this blog as well as Youtube…

The tone quickly changed when I asked if she was working with a realtor, and she said that she NEVER signs on with anyone….

Well, you know what my take is to all those out there who want to be their own house scout? Your loss, because home buyers/renters do not pay commissions, (the selling side pays) and you are better served using a buyer’s agent to help you find a home, protect your interests and guide you through the process, rather than call listing agents after going on random websites getting old information….and wasting everyone’s time.

This may not be Highclere Castle (that’s next door) – but this had been the carriage house – now transformed to the 21st century. This 5100SF property sits on 4 lovely acres of her own, is a home in it’s own right.

Just came from the broker open house….and it appears to be in great shape, and with a few minor changes – it could be absolutely charming. The outside lures you in, but it’s always nice to have the feeling that you never want to leave and/or feel welcomed when you come home…

Kitchen looks out to Lilly Pond – no, really!

Beautiful 4 acre property

Summer here for all you NYer’s who travel and endure parking lot traffic on 495 every weekend during “season” It provides a great alternative to the nonsense of the Hampton congo line.
