5 Key Real Estate Negotiation Tips!

We recently went into contract on a home with buyers in what was a really huge win for them. Without going into too many details on the property, per StreetEasy, we are in contract for $350 per foot cheaper than the building average. Given this recent success for our buyers I wanted to share some insight into how we made it happen. Here are some helpful tips for negotiating the best deal…

My Crystal Ball: Forecasting Our 2019 Real Estate Market

Most everyone wants to know what’s going to happen in the real estate market for years to come. First up is what’s 2019 looking like. While I don’t actually have a crystal ball (shocking, I know), here are my 2019 predictions based on what’s happening locally and globally, and most importantly, from our first hand experiences in the marketplace.

It's A Buyers Market in New York City

Last week on my video series Guidance by Glazer which you can check out on our team’s Facebook page, I talked about the ways in which you can detect it’s a buyer’s market. Given that we are seeing a clear cut shift in consumer command (i.e who controls the market), I thought it relevant to share those tips this week.

Trumped Up! The Impact of the Trump Presidency on the NYC Housing Market

I think it’s safe to say that not many of us here in the (mostly) blue state of New York were expecting Donald Trump to get elected president. Political opinions aside, it’s the new reality, and with such uncertainty and surprise, there are surely to be ramifications top to bottom on the political, economic, social, and ecological stages. Having said this, we are here in New York City, and we are homeowners, so let me get down to brass tacks on how I think his election will affect our housing market.

Triple P: The Power of Pre-Sale Preparation

It’s not new to say that the market has shifted: prices are softening across the board and even ultra-hot markets like Clinton Hill, Brooklyn are starting to slow down. Inventory has ticked up and buyer demand has cooled. What does this mean? Well for one, what it doesn’t mean is that the real estate market is dead or doomed or anything so absolute. It means that everyone will have to be a little more strategic, a little more thoughtful about buying and selling, and work a little bit harder.

My New York Homecoming

Yesterday, October 3rd, marked a homecoming for me. As a native New Yorker and a native to 12th street in Greenwich Village, I consider downtown Manhattan my hub. I, like so many of us, am a creature of comfort and despite living in a “big” city, feel right at home in the Village. Not to mention my office is on 14th street and 5th avenue. So after around two and a half years in Brooklyn, my girlfriend and I moved back to Greenwich Village yesterday.

You Before Me

I believe we are living in the ME age – everything is centered around being in the spotlight, being the center of attention. We have presidential candidates who do everything they can to grab the next headline, and reality tv shows that attempt to glorify the mundane – bringing attention to housewives, love seekers, and real estate agents alike. Yes, let's not forget shows like Million Dollar Listing, which has brought so much attention to the life of an agent often times making it seem larger than life.

Wild, Wacky, & Weird

No, I am not talking about myself. 

Although, if you knew me you might say the same thing! Rather, I am talking about the state of the real estate sales market - It’s a strange world out there. One of the proverbial godfathers of my business, Bob Knakal, said of the market earlier this week, “I am confused. I hope we have more clarity by the end of the year, because I’m no more certain where we’re going than I was at the beginning of the year.” While market conditions can never be boiled down to an exact explanation, here are a few thoughts on why it’s so confusing out there!
