Westchester continues to be an aggressive sellers’ market with homes selling quickly, and many over asking price. The single family and condo markets are the most aggressive. In this competitive, fast-moving market, it is very important to have a buyer’s agent to guide you through the process of buying a home.
Home Buyers’ Tip: While you may be looking for your perfect home, it’s always important to consider resale. Certain home features may be OK for you, but a dealbreaker for the next person buying your home, which will lower its value. An experienced real estate agent can help assess the resale value of your home.

In the last few months, we have all developed a new appreciation for where we live. We spend more time in our homes than ever, seeing them just not as places to crash after a long day of work, but as the place where we learn to cook new, adventurous meals, a workshop for our new hobbies, and a gathering place for the people closest to us.
We have also come to appreciate our neighborhoods and towns. I have lived in Westchester for my whole life, and the last few months have shown me even more to appreciate about where I live. As more and more people move from the city into Westchester, I wanted to share some benefits of living here during this unprecedented time.
Walking trails and hiking paths
No matter where you live in Westchester, you are close to a hiking path with beautiful views of nature. Take in views of the Hudson on the RiverWalk in Tarrytown or walk across the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo bridge. Do the Kensico Dam Staircase loop, walk through the Marshlands Conservancy, admire outdoor art at Pepsi Gardens, or feel a sense of peace and serenity while hiking through the Rockefeller Estate. There are so many walking trails for Westchester adventurers to discover and enjoy.
Many of us are cooking more than ever. However, sometimes we want a break – and takeout provides the perfect relief. Luckily, Westchester is home to countless amazing restaurants. Any kind of cuisine or food item can be found within a short driving distance, and especially in the bustling centers of New Rochelle, White Plains, or Yonkers.
3. Proximity to Upstate
One of Westchester’s greatest assets is its proximity to New York City. However, especially during these times its proximity to upstate New York is something to celebrate. If you need to get away, drive up to Hudson, New York to admire the bustling arts scene, go apple picking, plan a ski getaway at Hunter or Windham, or explore the Adirondacks. There is so much to experience in the state, and Westchester is the gateway to all New York has to offer!
