This particular deal was very difficult, when I met the homeowner his property was in code violation. As an experienced real estate broker, builder and investor, I was able to identify his open certificate of existing use issues and work with the Town of North Hempstead to resolve them.  This goes beyond the purview of a Real Estate Agent, but since I have experience in this area, I took his listing, offering my guidance throughout the Certificate of Existing Use process; an arduous task.  My client in this case was also a Senior Citizen, so my extensive experience as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, SRES with the National Association of Realtors provided me with the knowledge & sensitivity needed to make his transaction as stress-free as possible.  I’m particularly pleased with the su...

Viewing Open Houses without a Buyer’s Representative, ABR* puts you at an immediate disadvantage. If you want to place an offer with the agent hosting the Open House, you’re placing it with an agent who represents the Seller’s best interest; Not Yours! They signed a contract with the Seller stating just that.  Retain William Bodouva, Jr. as your ABR*. Ask the agent hosting the Open House to present the New York State Disclosure Form for Buyer and Seller stating whom they represent, then they must check off Buyer or Seller, then check off as the Buyer’s Agent or the Seller’s Agent. Full disclosure makes it clear to all parties. Acting on your behalf & in Your Best Interest, I can negotiate a more favorable Purchase Price, Better Terms & Guarantee a Smooth Transaction for the purchase of ...

Home Sales continued to be strong in January 2014; the momentum of the 2013 Seller’s Market has carried us into 2014. The Real Estate Sales Market of 2014 promises to be extremely competitive.  Properties are slowly being introduced to an overabundance of Home Buyers, who for one reason or another haven’t been able to procure new homes over the past several months.  These Home Buyers are Ready, Willing and Able, with mortgage pre-approval letters from their lenders, a strong knowledge of the Market Value of Homes and a burning desire to buy their next home at a lower price than is projected in the months and years to come.  In January, mortgage rates took an unexpected dip before the projected rise in interest rates, which are expected to be 5.75% (NAR), by August, 2014.  Savvy Home Buy...

Home Buyers & First Time Home Buyers:  There are comfortable and uncomfortable questions for Home Buyers, this one is easy and very important.  The very first time you speak with or meet a Real Estate Agent, simply ask who they represent?  Do they represent You as the Home Buyer, or the Seller?  All Real Estate Agents expect this question.  It’s always easier and better for both parties to establish loyalties and what you can expect from each other from the start of your relationship.  You owe it to yourself to have an expert represent your best interest during your search, negotiations and advice for other Real Estate professionals; such as Home Inspectors, Mortgage Brokers & Real Estate Attorneys. A Buyer’s Agent will clarify their allegiance to you as follows:  A. They must specifica...
