Condo-Sales.com Makes Condo Shopping in Manhattan Easier
There is no doubt that for most of us, real estate purchases and sales are the largest transactions we will ever make. As anyone that has bought or sold before knows, there is a lot of research that needs to go into each transaction. When it comes to doing the homework on condominium sales and purchases in New York City, things just became a whole lot easier.
Condo-Sales.com launched this month and is raising the bar when it comes to making plans to purchase or sell a condo. Their service allows consumers to do research with no pressure from sales agents. The Web site helps people to be informed and knowledgeable prior to buying or selling.
"Our search tool allows people to easily and affordably search thousands of condos throughout the city," says Henry Robbins, executive vice president of Yale Robbins, Inc. "There is no better way a person can be protected before buying or selling than to really know the market. Our service arms them with all they need in order to make an informed purchase or sale."
The Condo-Sales.com search tool allows users to create custom reports by searching for condos throughout the city based upon whatever parameters they choose. Searchers narrow results by choosing criteria, such as the number of bedrooms, price range, specific addresses, zip code or particular neighborhoods. They can also get data on condo sales that have taken place in prior years, allowing for a great deal of research to be conducted on any particular property.
"If you are thinking of buying or selling a condo there is nothing more important than determining what the market value of your home really is," says Robbins.
"We make available to our users, sales data and floor plans on over 25,000 actual condo sales that have taken place over the last five years," explains Robbins. "There is no other place someone can go to create their own customized market survey."
Generated reports include actual sales for all recent transactions in the building or neighborhood. People are now able to create the survey through this Web site at a time that is convenient for them.
"We are an independent, well respected source whose data products have been relied upon by real estate professionals for years. Our service puts the buyer and seller in the driver's seat," says Robbins.
Visitors to the site can also get sales statistics that cover the last year, showing how many condos were sold, average price, average square foot and where those sales took place. After conducting a search of the database, the user is then provided with a full detailed report on the information they requested. The report, which is purchased for $1 per condo, with a $35 minimum charge, includes information on pricing, floor plans, amenities and building information. Their database is updated daily to remain accurate.
"For 30 years we have been providing accurate real estate information to the public," adds Robbins. "Now we've taken it online to allow people the ability to do their own research, on their terms and in the comfort of their own home."
