Nanuet real estate activity for the month of May, 2011

Search Nanuet NY Rockland Real Estate Homes For Sale, Nanuet Condos for sale and Nanuet Town houses for saleHappy Summer! The first week of June is a great time to look back on May and gauge our market direction.  I am pleased to announce that 6 buyers have signed real estate contracts in Nanuet last month!  To put this into perspective, only three Nanuet real estate contracts were signed in May 2010.( Nanuet real estate statistics provided by the Greater Hudson Valley Multiple Listing Service.)

The following image contains information on which Nanuet homes actually went into escrow in May. 
At this point it should be another 60 to 90 days before closing.  June should be a strong month as well since
the 60-90 day escrow would allow new homeowners to settle in just in time for September’s new school year. 
While all parties may not disclose the actual sales price until closing we can still  evaluate any possible 
trends in asking prices.  For instance, there are currently several Nanuet Colonials on the market but only
the two priced at $499,000 went under contract.

The days on market stats are also very telling.  The least amount of time it took any home in Nanuet to
secure a contract was 39 days.  This was for a $419,000 raised ranch on Amarillo.  (A dead-end street)

Nanuet Real Estate Short Sales and Foreclosures

Nanuet NY Rockland County Real Estate Home For SaleA 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.

Nanuet Real Estate Buyer’s Agent

Rockland County Real Estate Home Search including Nanuet homes for sale nanuet condos for saleSearching  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.

  • 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.

Selling your Nanuet home? Make it easily accessible.

One often overlooked factors of a sucsesful real estate sale is the technology of a lock box on the house or condo for sale.  When I am working as a buyer’s agent with willing and able buyers we often contact the seller’s agent mid week to schedule a showing for the weekend.  If the seller cannot accommodate our appointment the buyers will often rule out this home immediately and will not come back another time.   With so much inventory on the market buyers need reasons to narrow down their choices (right from the very first showing appointment)

Here is a very simple principle to selling your Nanuet home in a tough market.

If buyers can’t access your home, they will not purchase it.

If a seller does not have a lockbox on their home they jeopardize losing limited buyers to one of the other 68 homes currently on the market in Nanuet.  People seek convenience.  Having to jump through hoops just to see a home is a quick path to a failed attempt at selling a home.

Safety Features of a lock Box

Cannot be accessed by anyone prior to 9 am or after 8 pmrockland county real estaste lock box
The lockbox captures all contact information upon use.  Including name, phone, email, Broker’s Office and exact time of entry.
Each agent must recharge their e-key every 24 hours to continue using a lockbox.
Agents must provide their password in order to gain access. Making it difficult for an imposter to gain access.

Convenience, selling benefits and other info about the lockbox system

A lockbox is not intrusive to the current owner accessing entry.  The lockbox only holds a copy of the key for visiting agents.rockland county real estate display key for real estate agents
A lockbox can not be accessed by the general public.  Only a real estate agent can access the lockbox.

In Nanuet, it is not unheard of for a buyer’s agent to schedule 5-10 showings for their clients in one day. If in addition to the 5-10 houses the agent also has to run around to the broker’s office to pick up keys- more than likely they will skip this home all together.

Buyers agents will doubt the seriousness of a seller who does not have a lockbox-  Again, they will be less likely bring this home to the attention of their buyers if they don’t think the seller really wants to move.

Most buyers feel uncomfortable entering a home with the owners present.   They will hold back their emotions  and will not examine the home in a manner that would lead to an offer.   If sellers insist on being home for all showings they put themselves at a competitive disadvantage.
