Buying a Home on Long Island – Without Overpaying


There are many ways to go about buying a home on Long Island based on your budget.

Think of buying a home as shopping for an appliance or shopping for clothes or pretty much anything. You can buy something either on sale, at a discount or you can pay full price.

The same applies to buying a home on Long Island. You can buy a home:

  • On sale
  • At a discount
  • Pay full price

Short sales are a great option for buying a home at a discount. Don’t let the short sale process intimidate you. At Charles Rutenberg Realty we have a short sale division that can make the transaction a smooth one.

Another option is to take a look at homes that have been sitting on the market for awhile. For some reason, it’s taking these homes longer than usual to sell. Find out why – there may be room to negotiate.

If you don’t way to overpay for a home on Long Island, talk to your Realtor. State your goals of buying a home without overpaying and that you prefer to look for the best deal. Your Realtor will help you reach your goals.
