The downstairs of the home contained bot...

Buying a home in Merrick Woods, on Long Island's south shore  is more about lifestyle than simply bricks and mortar.  People fall in love with the tree lined streets, the pristine properties and the eclectic home choices.  They feel blessed to be in an area where children happily ride their bikes, play street hockey and know their neighbors.  When Halloween rolls around, you'll find adorably dressed monsters and superheros walking side by side, in prodigious numbers, with their parents strolling along two steps behind.  It feels like community.  It feels like home. Just a few short years ago, getting into Merrick Woods for first time buyers was often little more than a dream.  They waited for any opportunity to buy a starter home or a fixer upper just to get a foot in the proverbial do...

"You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need" The Rolling Stones.   If you try sometimes you'll find a home in Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh, Nassau County New York  Having dealings with a fair amount of young first time buyers I find myself singing this tune over and over in my head. I want to shake some of these buyers and say exactly that to them, if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need.  My advice to all buyers is simple You can't always get what you want so make a list of what your priorities are in your search. We all know there is a pain point around finances so know exactly what you will be able to swing on your budget, so use a mortage calulator.  In the old days everyone would say that you could exp...

 Homes for sale $400,000 to $1,900,000 dollars, Merrick, NY. You can imagine that with that type of a dollar range you could find many different styles as well as neighborhoods. Homes for sale $400,000 to $1,900,000 dollars, Merrick, NY. Some may think because Merrick is on the south shore of long Island that a home in the million dollar range has to be on the water. Years ago that may have been true but not so today. There are several homes that have recently sold in the million dollars range that are actually in North Merrick several miles off shore. If you are seeking a home on the water in a town like Merrick you could be spending closer to $2,000,000 dollars. Add an in-ground gunite pool and the cost goes up. Homes for sale $400,000 to $1,900,000 dollars, Merrick, NY can be found o...

On Nassau County's south shore of Long Island, just 41 scheduled minutes from Penn Station on the Babylon line of the Long Island Railroad, sits a well manicured enclave of homes on tree lined streets, known as Merrick Woods.  Just moments from shopping, schools and the charming revitalized town center, yet a world away in feeling, this well loved area as it exists today was developed in the early to mid twentieth century.  Homes have evolved over the years, some taking on a whole new persona while others wear subtle changes that only enhance the vision conceived in the developer's mind. Housing styles include wonderful old tudors, ranger ranches (sprawling homes that lend themselves to the many updated and reconfigured styles they've become over the years), colonials, cape cods and a s...

As a full time Feng Shui Consultant who is all over New York City and Long Island, a homeowner and part time helper to my mom, I lead a busy life.  With the move I am making, it has become even busier. Not yet being able to refinish the basement (which has been going on for a year but NOT a sign of any water leaks) I decided to put the money (originally slated for a brand new car) into the upstairs of my home-the part I actually spend 90% of my time in. After my misadventures last year of calling everyone individually (roofer, gutter person, someone to grade the land, engineer) I thought I could save a great deal of time calling a contractor for the upstairs.  Here's something I didn't think of:  I have to date called five--not ONE of them knew what I was talking about in paints or carp...

Merrick NY Real Estate Market ConditionsNow that the 4th of July is over, school is over... the market will pick up for the month of July.  Besides going to the beach and enjoying the weather, July is the second best month of the year to buy or sell a house.  If you find a house this month, timeframe will be perfect for right before school closing.  The market is moving along, in spite of the huge inventory available.  Buyers have their choice in homes, causing them to take more time in making a decision, but we are also noticing that if the house is priced well, standing out in some way from the rest, interest is high and sometimes multiple offers are placed.   We here at the Dan Adams Home Team continuously monitor local real estate statistics to keep our clients informed and ahead of...
