New Construction For The First Time Home Buyer

Hardie-Cobble-Stone

From Koby Kepert:
“Most of us have been down this road before… as a first-time home buyer, it seems easy to buy a fixer upper and transform it into your dream home. It seems so easy on all of the HGTV shows we watch, right? Well, the real-life reality is not always like that. Working in this business for so many years now, I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from people desperate for help with their “DIY gone wrong” issues. I think that, being a first-time home buyer, you should have some serious home improvement skills before attempting to renovate a fixer upper. This surely can save you some money as long you don’t make any expensive mistakes along the way. But if you don’t have the skills nor the time and energy, buying a newly-built home or having it built for you seems to be the best option…..”

It has a flat rear yard with a driveway and 1 car garage underneath. There are hardwood floors under the wall to wall carpeting and recent vinyl windows. The original detailing still exists with the rafters exposed at the eaves and masonry piers and columns. Great for a tasteful restoration or as an alternative to a condo, with no shared walls or association fee. Located in the Irvington school district and a quick commute by Metro North train to Manhattan. Great expansion potential, up or out. Don’t wait too long to see this one!
