Nanuet Real Estate update: I just finished a video tour on my new listing at 11 Jerrys Avenue, Nanuet. Sometimes the photos of a home can be deceiving. A video tour is a great online tool to help buyers get a true feel for a home without leaving their living room.
Take a tour of 11 Jerrys Avenue in Nanuet and see for yourself. We put this home on the market last week and it has had a tremendous activity thus far. The most common reaction of everyone that visited 11 Jerrys this week was “very cute!”
Many Nanuet home buyers shopping in the low 300’s assume they must focus on a condo or town house. No Longer! We have a great condo alternative in Nanuet. The opportunity to own a three bedroom home in the Nanuet school district has arrived. This home has new siding, new Mastic windows and a recently replaced roof. Let it rain as this basement stays dry. You can walk to the Nanuet train station or drive to NY State thruway in moments. My favorite part is that unlike a condo the home has a perfect yard to barbecue!
11 Jerrys Avenue
Asking Price $309,500
3 bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

A short sale exists when a seller attempts to sell a home for less than the their current mortgage value. For instance if someone purchased a Nanuet Colonial in 2005 they probably paid near $650,000. With an 80 percent loan to value they would have financed $520,000. In 2011 that same Nanuet Colonial could effectively sell on the open market for $500,000. Putting aside closing costs and expenses the sellers would be short $20,000. ($520,000 loan minus $500,000 current value.) In the real estate world these sellers are also considered upside down or under water.
How does a short sale affect a buyer?
Ultimately, any offer on a short sale needs to be approved by the seller’s bank. This approval rarely materializes quickly. A normal real estate transaction can be negotiated within a 24 hour period but a short sale offer often wont even receive a response for weeks. The actual approval and closing could be delayed as much as 6 months. Based on this information a short sale would not be recommended for a buyer that has an absolute deadline in which to move. (I.E. job relocations, rental lease expiration or a having already sold an existing home.) Since these factors diminish the buyer pool available for this type of transaction it naturally brings down the hone value compared to comparable homes that could sell quickly (lowering the demand lowers the price.) With that being said if a potential buyer for a Nanuet or Rockland County home for sale does not have any pressing deadline in which to move they could capitalize on the lower prices.

Searching Nanuet homes for sale? Contact a qualified buyer’s agent. Mike Truiano, Nanuet’s home-grown realtor, offers a no cost, comprehensive buyer’s consultation. This process helps buyers like you find the right home with the least amount of aggravation. knowledgable, educated buyers are at a real advantage and will save time and especially their gas money!!
Also, it is critically important to know that when buyers walk into an open house or call on a newspaper ad they are speaking to a seller’s real estate agent. A seller’s real estate agent is contractually obligated to get the highest price possible for the seller. A seller’s real estate agent does not represent the buyer.
What I love most about working with buyers in Nanuet is our services offered come at no cost to the buyer. It is a beautiful thing! Many sellers have unrealistic expectations about the sales price of their homes. They try to quantify their sentimental values when determining the asking price. A buyer’s agent can educate the buyer about what is a good value and what is an unrealistic price.
Here are some other services a buyer’s agent can offer.
- Rent vs. Buying cost calculations
- Financing options
- First time home buyer programs
- Closing costs expectations
- Homeowners Insurance requirements
- How to make an offer
- What comes next after they’ve accepted the offer.
- Current Inventory updates
- Recent Sales Trends- how flexible are today’s sellers.
- Benefits of a Buyer’s agent
Many buyers fail to realize that real estate negotiations continue long after reaching an agreeable price. Some other areas of negotiation include when the closing date shall occur, who should make any necessary repairs, how much money will be put into escrow and which appliances will be included in the sale.
Do not risk losing thousands of dollars by relying on the seller’s real estate agent. Find your own representation. Contact Mike Truiano at 845-480-2366 for a comprehensive buyer consultation. Mike is a lifelong Nanuet resident and specializes in helping buyers find Nanuet homes for sale and Nanuet condos for sale.
