See What My Clients Have To Say...

My experience working with Donna Cox was exceptional! This was my first time selling a property and she made the entire process feel seamless and easy. Donna knows the real estate market inside and out and advised me each step of the way - from staging decisions and pricing to offers and contract language. Donna was always friendly and approachable, I felt like I could text her with questions anytime, and I did. And she was also always the consummate professional. Her goal was to get my property sold. It was a pleasure working with Donna. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. C.R.-M., Nyack
I can’t imagine working with a better agent - EVER. I know you do what's right for your clients and in these times of craziness it's nice to feel so comfortable working with you. I know you're our agent but we really feel like you looked out for us like a friend. I only hope we're friends after all the dust settles because you're a good person and such people are few and far between. (E. & S. W. - West Nyack)
Best. Greatest. Knowledge above all. Pleasant. Interested. Caring. Professional. Never met a lady like Donna Cox. Donna kept us updated all the time. She was lovely to work with and really was concerned about us and selling our home. She marketed our home professionally and kept our needs as her priority. I have sold many properties but have never met a real estate agent like Donna. I wish I had more homes to sell because I will miss working with her. As a disclosure we have no family relationship with Donna, we just love her. Hire her. (B. & N. K. – Montebello, NY)
If you are serious about selling your home then Donna Cox is the right real estate agent. As a relocating executive, I needed very quick and predictable results. We were in contract within two weeks in an extremely difficult market for sellers. Donna Cox has a strong marketing background and leverages her core knowledge, skills and current market dynamics when marketing homes to sell. My wife (who was a real estate agent for 15 years and has extremely high standards) and I agree that Donna Cox stands far, far above other agents we interviewed. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home. R.S. - Stony Point

Should Boomers Buy or Rent after Selling?

Should Boomers Buy or Rent after Selling? | Simplifying The Market

In a recent CNBC article, it was reported that many baby boomers are selling their current homes and moving into rentals, rather than purchasing another home.

“Between 2009 and 2015, the number of renters aged 55 or above rose 28 percent, while those aged 34 or younger only increased 3 percent…

Meanwhile, more than 5 million baby boomers across the nation are expected to rent their next home by 2020, according to a 2016 analysis from Freddie Mac.”

This makes sense in the short term for many reasons. If you are moving to a different part of town or a new region of the country, you may decide to rent until you pick the perfect home in an area you love. However, is renting a good long-term strategy?

A mortgage payment remains fixed. Rents, however…

The Census Bureau recently released their 2017 third quarter median rent numbers. Here is a graph showing rent increases from 1988 until today:

As you can see, rents have steadily increased and are showing no signs of slowing down. If you are faced with making the decision of whether you should rent or buy your next home, you should take this into consideration.

Bottom Line

One way to protect yourself from rising rents is to lock in your housing expense by buying a home instead of renting. Let’s get together so we can help you decide what the best step is for you and your family!

What is the Cost of Waiting Until Next Year to Buy?

What is the Cost of Waiting Until Next Year to Buy? | Simplifying The Market

We recently shared that over the course of the last 12 months, home prices have appreciated by 7.0%. Over the same amount of time, interest rates have remained historically low which has allowed many buyers to enter the market.

As a seller, you will likely be most concerned about ‘short-term price’ – where home values are headed over the next six months. As a buyer, however, you must not be concerned about price, but instead about the ‘long-term cost’ of the home.

The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae all project that mortgage interest rates will increase by this time next year. According to CoreLogic’s most recent Home Price Index Report, home prices will appreciate by 4.7% over the next 12 months.

What Does This Mean as a Buyer?

If home prices appreciate by 4.7% over the next twelve months as predicted by CoreLogic, here is a simple demonstration of the impact that an increase in interest rate would have on the mortgage payment of a home selling for approximately $250,000 today:

Bottom Line

If buying a home is in your plan for 2018, doing it sooner rather than later could save you thousands of dollars over the terms of your loan.
