It is good to hear that Drive Realty of Scarsdale has joined Westchester Real Estate, Inc for a stronger force of Real Estate Market. Business related to home are getting bigger and bigger nowadays. So if you are trying to sell your house because you are down. Consult first a
financial adviser for more cash alternatives. Who knows?Your house will triple the recent price 10 years from now. Be wise when selling properties, especially house and lot.

CONSUMER WARNING

"grew to among the top 20 real estate companies in the county"
"we see this as the next step is growing our business, and increasing the value to our clients"

big deal.
10 years of experience = 6 months experience x 20

just another roll-up seeking to reduce overhead, a benefit to only the Agency

try and find out on how many transactions this firm was both the listing and selling agent? think: show me, don't tell me.
this is the only measure that counts in a MLS world

beware of being dazzled by "stats"

when $10 rises to $20, it is said to double; it has gone up an impressive 100%
when $20 falls to $10, it has only lost half its value; it has gone down by 50%

now if that happened over the course of a year (or any number of years) and I were to ask: what is the average rate of return, the answer would be?

+100% plus -50% = +50% and, even after dividing this by 2, you get an impressive and desirable +25% "gain" in just one year, Wow! until you remember
$10 which rose to $20 and then fell back to $10 represents a 25% average annual return.
and a good reason to buy now?
incidentally,
this math works equally well for "financial advisors".
