I'm a real estate agent, there are NO forclosures that worth their salt. You want to live Wyandanch, Roosevelt, Mastic Beach, Bellport, oh, you want to own a town, go to New Cassell, each street has at least 6 -8 boarded up forclosed properties. You could own the town if you wanted to, but nobody wants to, believe me. However, if you want to live Syosset, Plainview, Huntington, Jericho, E. Williston, Roslyn, Long Beach, Oceanside or any other town that you would WANT to live in and actually be able to send your kids to a proper school, forget it, NO FORCLOSURES, and if there were one, it goes into contract within a week.
It is NOT a Buyers or a Sellers out their, everyone wants too much for their little houses or the buyers puts in such lowball offers, that they have a hard time coming to an agreement. So the house either gets rented out or stays unsold, and is taken off of the market. Period, end of story.

This article is nothing more than a plea from these fat, lazy, biased, paid off, politically connected, judges wanting more. Trying to make the situation seem so out of hand, that the ONLY solution is hire more judges. What a bunch of fuggging bullllshyt. Who is this Erik German?, writing this crapppp? Is his father Harold German, the so called doctor in Huntington?
Newsday, stop, just stop this garbage that you are spewing to bring down the Long Island housing market.

Retired Civil Servant: Too bad you aren't civil, egalitarian, and giving of heart and soul. Instead I find you rather the snob, and a bit of an elitist, based upon your paltry sum of 70K a year...really not much money actually.

Foreclosures are summary proceedings which do not require trials. The settlement conferences are held as a last ditch effort to get the parties to settle before the Court grants the motion, because the debtor usually does not have a defense. A referee is then appointed to compute damages, and then the auction is held. What has clogged the system are the numerous "moratoriums" which in industry imposes on itself which only delay the inevitable.

If more LI families spent time at HOME WATCHING SPORTS then they could afford much needed raises for education, which would you rather have? a guy throwing a ball or a good education for children? STOP HURTING THE CHILDREN, VOTE YES ON YOUR BUDGET these people who cant afford thier homes are criminals for not paying the salaries of hard working educators and should be sentenced to jail.

Oh is that right? Then put your money where your mouth is!

Why don't you put in your advertising campaign a policy that states that if the house any of your customers buy from you falls 20% or more in the next three years, you will pay them the difference; after all, you KNOW that prices on these properties aren't going to fall in value. I would imagine you would get so much business you would have to hire people to work for you.

Of course you would never do this because it is a losing proposition. You really don't believe these properties will hold their value. If you are honest and truly believed in what you preach, you would share in any pain that your clients might suffer as a result should your advice prove to be toxic (as it certainly will).

A stock broker would go to jail if he ever gave advice about a stock the way a real estate agent gives advice about buying. This is why no one should ever take the advice of a real estate agent when it comes to determining market trends.

According to realtytrac:

Syosset 56 in default 6 bank owned
Plainview 51 in default 5 bank owned 1 REO
Huntington 124 in default 7 bank owned
Jericho 15 in default 4 bank owned
E. Williston 6 in default
Roslyn 28 in default 2 bank owned
Long Beach 83 in default 7 bank owned 1 sheriff sale
Oceanside 81 in default 4 bank owned 1 REO

...but there's no foreclosures in those areas. You claim the writer of the article is full of it? Talk about the tea calling the kettle black!

All the areas you mentioned are declining in price along with all the rest and will continue for quite some time. Anyone that wants to see what RE prices are doing can visit the bubble map of LI

The Gov't is flat broke, the cities are broke and now the people will become broke. This will be worse then the great depression.
