It's been busy around the local real estate market over the past couple weeks—with the spring market getting an early start, the area saw a whopping 24 new listings hit the market. And with the listing prices ranging from $150,000 to $2,499,000, there is something for everyone.
Properties that stand out include a charming two-bedroom brick home in Sparkill for only $298,000, a foreclosure at 12 Herald Court in Valley Cottage for $380,000 and a contemporary at 208 Highmount in Upper Nyack for $539,000.
On the high end we have two spectacular properties. Our featured home, a 1790 classic Greek Revival estate at 245 River Road in Grandview is listed at $2,499,000. It features over 5,000-square-feet on over 1.3 acres, and is truly one of the treasures of Grand View.
And then there's the fabulous home at 80 Rockland Road in Sparkill. This 4,300-square-foot country contemporary sits on 1.9 acres and is one of the most remarkable homes in the area. The property is being offered at $1,650,000.
On the sales side the market has been very active—the area had 16 properties go into contract. The pending deals included 51 North Central Avenue in Upper Nyack that sold in just one day, a short sale multi-family home at 60 Elysian Avenue in South Nyack that has been sitting around since 2004, land on Welles Lane in Upper Grandview and two Tweed Boulevard homes with breathtaking river views.
In addition, the region had 13 homes transfer title. Some sales that stand out include 138 Germonds Road in West Nyack that sold for $200,000 after six years on the market, a mountain top retreat at 4 Woods Road in Valley Cottage, a contemporary ranch at 209 Kuyper Drive in Upper Nyack and our famous Sears, Roebuck & Co. home at 268 South Boulevard in Upper Grandview.
Overall, I would say that the market has been extremely hot.

"Most agents will share sunny stories, but what happens when things don’t go as planned?
Mary was referred by her broker after an initial listing with another agent was terminated and I had deep reservations as to whether to stick with the firm. The fact that we lost the summer season added to my concerns, but she and Wright Bros rose to the challenge. A super video and much improved photos were quickly completed by her colleague Steve Dolinsky, while Mary pushed on multiple fronts. She held a series of open houses, cajoled agents, and supported a push for a stronger online presence. The house was in contract ten weeks later.
Equally important, Mary proved she could handle tough conversations and stand her ground – with me and in external negotiations – all while maintaining a positive and ethical manner. I’m delighted to refer her – not just for her professional chops, but also for her warm, thoughtful approach. Mary Lovera is a class act."
