Slowing in LI, or still strong?

From Newsday:

LI home prices rise, but sales slow and inventory grows, report shows

Long Island home prices kept rising as the spring selling season got underway last month, but the pace of sales slowed and inventory is on the rise.

In Suffolk County, homes sold for a median price of $372,875 in March, up 5.9 percent from a year earlier, the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island reported Thursday. Nassau County’s median home price increased by 3.4 percent annually, to $517,000.

The number of closed home sales fell year-over-year by 5.8 percent in Suffolk and 8.8 percent in Nassau, the listing service reported. However, in a sign that the market could get stronger in the coming months, the number of contract signings jumped by more than 10 percent in Suffolk and ticked up by 1.4 percent in Nassau, compared with the previous March.

Demand is strong for homes in the $400,000 to $600,000 price range, said Russ Bonanno, a real estate agent with Bon Anno Real Estate in Massapequa who handles home sales from western Nassau through Dix Hills and Commack in Suffolk.

In that price range, he said, “it’s a very competitive environment out there for buyers. There’s a lot of very serious and very qualified buyers out there.” A home listed for $549,000 in North Bellmore recently went under contract four days after it was listed, with 17 competing offers, he said.

A strong economy, low unemployment and affordable mortgage rates are driving buyers’ enthusiasm, Bonanno said. The average mortgage rate was 4.12 percent this week, 0.3 percentage points lower than a year ago, mortgage giant Freddie Mac reported Thursday.

The market is less competitive for more expensive homes, Bonanno said: “As you go up in price, the buyer pool does shrink a bit.”

Asking prices hit a median $519,000 in Suffolk, 8 percent higher than the previous March, and $689,000 in Nassau, up 6 percent from a year earlier, listing service figures show.

The number of homes listed for sale grew year-over-year by 22 percent in Nassau and 7.2 percent in Suffolk, according to listing service figures. At the current pace of sales, it would take a little more than six months to sell all the homes listed for sale in Nassau and Suffolk. Brokers say a balanced market has a six- to eight-month supply of homes.

    LI still strong. One of few places in country where housing market is getting hotter. Brooklyn and Queens have added 900,000 people since 1980 and when they go to buy a house, they look in Nassau and Suffolk. Huge pool of pent up demand will support Nassau and Suffolk for years.

    Won’t last forever though. Brooklyn and Queens population has stopped growing.

    Beans in the morning, beans for green tea, legumes for you personally and legumes for me! Legumes are loaded filled with healthy proteins and fiber content, which can be the two extremely important in the foods of any diabetic. Attempt to involve as many legumes and lentils from the foods you take in as you possibly can. Just cook them up and throw them into everything, from chili to salads!

    Where Nassau County begins and New York City ends is moving further east by the day. When we were kids, we used to shop for most of our clothes in Alexander’s on 27 (Sunrise Hwy) in Valley Stream.

    It’s a Target now.

    Chi – Great purveyor of Youtube. Hotdog condom style was pretty funny. (from yesterday).

    Grim – Saw the EDI story. Really unbelievable. I guess he needs more spots for more of his campaign helpers and their immediate families.

    D’s got the flu and I was forced to paper file my FED, NY and NJ taxes since Gator’s company messed up and sent her a NJ and NY W2. What a royal pain in the ass. Don’t worry Trumplova. I wasn’t ornery due to the amount of my taxes. Just disgusted by your silly, silly posts.

    Gator Jr., made his hockey team on night one of tryouts. I doubt they lose a game at tier II since they really should be competing in tier I. Of course, no tier I teams will play us since they’re afraid they’ll lose to us. At least there are districts to look forward to this year. He tries out for NJ development camp next weekend. Will be interesting to see how he stacks up against the area’s best defensemen.

    “Kings and Queens are not Long Island dumba$$…. spoken like a Hudson County realtor(R)…..”

    When residents of Brooklyn and Queens want to buy a house, they buy in Nassau and Suffolk. They don’t go to that faraway scary place known as New Jersey. The guy who bought my parents’ house in western Nassau was “thrilled to buy in such a safe neighborhood” and paid cash. My parents couldn’t wait to get out of that sh*thole town because of how quickly it went downhill. Everything is relative I guess.

  8. ExEssex says:

    Youth hockey was the best! I learned to skate at 5 years-old.
    Moment of glory – I played goalie one game (usually a defenseman) and scored ! A shot from center ice. They moved me ‘up’ a div. the next day.

  9. Libturd, can't say I didn't warn you. says:

    There’s no more moving up. Which I agree with, ya braggard.

    I don’t want the glory of my son’s hockey prowess. Just a discount on college. Sadly, I can’t and won’t force him to play Tier I, even though that’s where he belongs. He claims he won’t regret it later in life. He’s probably wrong. It just becomes more painful every year as he continues to develop.

  10. leftwing says:

    Lib, do not look at any discount at any college from NJ hockey. Seriously. Please, if that’s your end point take him out of hockey and enroll him in crew or fencing. Not joking.

    Ex, dumped the rest of my CELG. High teens total return. At this point it’s a proxy for BMY, no juice left. Do still have a small BMY equity/option position I’ll add to on weakness.

  11. Fast Eddie says:

    Trump loves illegal immigrants:
    http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=235582
    The Administration is going to cap remittances (by legal US Citizens) to Cuba. It can clearly, and legally, do this. It could also ban all remittances by other than lawful permanent residents or US Citizens to any set of nations it so chooses.

    Like Mexico, Honduras, etc. This would instantly dry up the illegal invader flow. If you got here you couldn’t send money home. You couldn’t pay the Coyote who brought you here. You couldn’t get tax-free, under-the-table money and send it to your family (illegally earned.)

    There would be no economic reason to come here if you had anyone left behind. Trump could do it in an afternoon. He won’t because he loves the parade of illegal invaders.

    He loves the donations from farmers and other industry that wants to pay people illegally under the table, cheating the government out of tens if not hundreds of billions in taxes.

  24. ExEssex says:

    1:11 sounds like you smoked your lunch…

  25. The Great Pumpkin says:

    I’ve always taken the position that illegal immigrants swarm to our country for one reason…American businesses make a ton of money off them. If they couldn’t get jobs, why would they come here?

    You don’t want illegal immigrants, well tell all the businesses to stop hiring them.

  26. leftwing says:

    Lib, wrote you a thoughtful response on the hockey but it disappeared into cyberspace…here’s an abridged version

    Bottom line, the best well worn pathway for the NJ player involves leaving the State, even at T1. If he is anywhere near that level he will have people contacting him if he has not already. First legit National bound T1 teams in the District (not BS AYHL American or USPHL Elite teams) and they will offer tuition breaks to get him. Then you move during HS, first to prep then USHL.

    There is another way, but it is lower probability, ugly, and nearly as expensive.

    Hockey is unique among D1 for several reasons. Run the numbers compared to lax, football, etc….only 60 programs, only 25 roster spots, subtract the half that are Canadian/Minnesota, divide by four levels in college, divide by the three year wide entry age of freshman and you get 60-70 D1 freshman slots annually open for a player at any birth year. A good number are Ivy, a good number are schools you would not enroll him (Bemeidji State anyone?), and then there are the rest….

    Play the sport for love of it. If you’re looking for dollars or preferential admissions do anything else. Hell, e-sports. Water polo. Whatever.

    Good luck at Districts

    I meant nobody is commuting from those South shore or way, way out towns to bus tables or waitress on the North Shore like Huntington. Why would they? They can earn minimum wage much closer to home. Instead you get rich HS kids who don’t even want the job, their parents are probably making them do it to teach them the value of a buck. Have dinner in one of the $$$$ restaurants in Huntington and tell me you see anything different.

    Every Long Island location on that list has median household income well above the national level except Hempstead, which is only slightly above the national average. Brentwood’s median household income is 30% above US and 20% above NY state. These towns have some poor people but they are middle class and upper middle class mix of blue and white collar by any objective measurable standard.

    Expat’s point is right – Long Island’s poor and blue collar population is tiny.

    And Floral Park is 90% above the US average and has lower poverty rate than Rumson, Millburn, Ridgewood, and Franklin Lakes. Bruiser does not appear to know what he is writing about.

  32. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    The median age in Huntington is 22% higher than New York.
    In Huntington 91.90% of the population is White.
    In Huntington 1.47% of the population is Black or African American.
    In Huntington 3.27% of the population is Asian.

    Huntington, NY has a population of 17,942 and is the 2,413th largest city in the United States. The population density is 2,363 per sq mi which is 559% higher than the New York average and 2508% higher than the national average.

Districts for me is really an excuse to sleep over down in AC. Don’t sweat it. I’ve always known his chances are next to nothing. It’s just his sports IQ is so damn high.

    Step aside, Florida. New Mexico is the new top retirement destination.
    Those were the findings from a survey by United Van Lines. The relocation company polled 26,998 of its customers who moved last year, through Nov. 30, 2018.
    Among those who moved to New Mexico, 42% said they did so because of retirement, making the Land of Enchantment a top destination.

    Florida came in second, with 38% of people moving there citing “retirement” as a reason. Arizona followed in third, according to United Van Lines.
    Meanwhile, those golden years were also a primary reason why people fled New Jersey, with a third of households citing that as a driver behind their decision to leave the Garden State.
    Maine and Connecticut round out the top three states people are moving away from citing retirement, the moving service found.

    I guess you can’t meet a nice woman in church anymore.

    “He also wrote about struggling on a dating app, “Honestly, I’m getting murdered on Tinder. It’s a total self-esteem killer. I’m a pretty in-shape guy, and I’m going for in-shape women who are a little attractive, and have a few nice features. Not models, but just generically attractive women. I’ve “swiped right” on 500+ women. So far, not a single match. Depressing. I think I should probably give up on dating for the time being, and focus really hard on school and work and saving up as much as I can for plastic surgery. Based on the consults I’ve had with my plastic surgeon, I’m confident I can go from a 4/10 to a 7.2–7.3/10. That’s what I’ll focus on now.”

    “Thanks to rampant anti-vaxx parenting, the youth population of Lakewood is set up for a sharp decline as well.”

    The D came down with the flu on Tuesday. When I took him to the pediatrician, there were signs everywhere that said they will no longer see non-vaccinated children. I told D’s doctor that I told her this was coming and she should have changed their policy year’s ago. We threatened to leave there once D started chemo, but they allowed to come in before opening to compensate. She said that the measles outbreak has caused such a panic in the religious areas that everyone who skipped these vaccinations are in such a rush to get them now that it’s causing problems in that there are necessary waits between inoculations for effectiveness and the families are in complete panic over the delay. Our Passaic relative’s temple requires 100% vaccination for entry. Of course, their rabbi was not an anti-vaccer. Not sure where this crap came from among Hasidic Jews as it’s absolutely not a kosher thing.

    During a campaign rally on August 31, 2016, Donald Trump promised to “immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties in which he defied federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately five million illegal immigrants.” Unfortunately, almost three years later, not only is the DACA amnesty alive and well, an entirely new amnesty for hundreds of thousands of bogus asylees, which is fueling the core magnet of today’s border invasion, is growing like wildfire. The million-dollar question is why is the administration continuing to give hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants work permits?

    A quick glance at USCIS data on the number of work permits issued by this administration for various categories of migrants shows that nearly 750,000 employment authorization documents have been issued to “asylum applicants” for FY 2017 and FY 2018.
    http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=235591

    8 USC 1158 makes clear that an asylum applicant is not entitled to work authorization.
    Yet Trump has issued 750,000 such permits over the last two fiscal years … and the number of permits he issued are greater than those issued by Obama during his second term.

    Hummm the Muller report on Russian “collusion” is 207 pages long and the second report on “obstruction of justice” is 241 pages long. Really shows the priorities of the Muller and team.

    Every document requested was delivered without fail. Every White House and campaign staffer requested for interviews was provided. Trump and his team literally did everything possible to accommodate Mueller’s investigation.

    Muller report also has over 50 referenced “opinion” articles from The New York Times and the Washington Post, how is that for wasting paper?

  94. Not FastEddie says:

    Eddie,

    I think the 2020 Election will be decided on one issue. You saw of it when Sanders did the Town Hall on Fox. The public reaction to Baeir’s question of who want Medicare For All said it all. Trump’s reaction to people’s reaction to Sanders and the stock market reaction by clobbering anything to do with health insurance and pharma, again says it all.

    The 2020’s is the Dems to lose. And they will lose because they have not yet exorcise the “boomer Clinton/Pelosi/3rd Way aka Rockefeller Republicans ” that infected it when the Clintons took over. Already the big donors are trying to fence out Sanders, it looks like they still need another 4+ yrs in the wilderness to get rid of these boomer demons.

    2020 is going to be won by whoever is “Medicare for All”. If the dems don’t step up and kill it off, the public anger will go to “Medicare for None” with Trump, and big push by the ideologues to get rid of Obamacare and Medicare as is now stand forever.

  95. Fast Eddie says:

    2020 is going to be won by whoever is “Medicare for All”.

    Liberals are all about choice, no? And who pays for it all? Do I have a choice to select the care I need by a particular provider or do I stand in line with a third world junkie and hope I don’t die before he does? Do you really think the democrats give a sh1t about your well-being? Will Sanders’ family and relatives have to stand in the same line as myself?

  101. Not FastEddie says:

    Eddie,

    Is easy. You are already paying from your taxes for the most expensive part of healthcare, that is taking care of old people aka the drug addled boomers on medicare.

    The cost of taking care of everyone else is a lot lower than you think once the rent seeking of big pharma and for-profit insurance and hospitals are out of the equation. United Healthcare provides insurance to as many people as Medicare does now. United Health Care is an oligopolist taking a a nice cut of every transaction making over 220 billions.

    The other solution is actually simple. You take care of your parents, and I’ll take care of my parents. I don’t pay for yours and you don’t pay for mine. Is a great solution that I’m happy with too. Simply because if there is a generation that needs to be sent off the planet asap because of their selfishness and self centerness, no one beats the boomers.

    I know why I’m here…I’m here to go and get it! I understand the tax penalty for entering this arena of the economy, but I accept it knowing the economic potential.

That’s why I choose and accept the tax penalty to compete in this economic arena. Think that’s why everyone is here in this state.

    This state has two things, rich and poor. The middle leave for easier pastures. The poor are too lazy to move. The rich kill it. That’s jersey!

  104. Blue Ribbon Teacher says:

    You could easily hire every doctor in the state at a salary of $1 million per year to give full service to everyone in town healthcare and the cost would come out a fraction of what we pay for insurance.

    You need the context:

    As the Intercept reported last year (based on leaks from within WikiLeaks), and as the Mueller Report now confirms as fact, Assange “privately expressed opposition to candidate Clinton well before the first release of stolen documents. In November 2015, Assange wrote to other members and associates of WikiLeaks” that “it would be much better for GOP to win” and that Hillary Clinton is “a bright, well connected, sadistic sociopath.”

They’re pursuing justice…and accountability…and limited government which conservative Republicans have always believed in, before Trump. Limited government. And they’re pursuing these ideals, for all these months, ABOVE politics, and now they say, “Well we may have a case for impeachment, but we’re not gonna pursue it because…we can’t get Republicans to go along with it, and therefore it will look like a partisan exercise and therefore we’re not going to do it. And that is scary, because it changed their standard. Their standard was justice and truth, now it’s “What’s going to be good for 2020?”. That’s not gonna look too good, if they make that decision.

  117. Juice Box says:

    Bystander – you should know better. The full quote was omitted by the MSM so the context changed to make it sound like he was guilty when in fact he went on the explain why he is F–ed.

    “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f—ed,” Trump said when he was informed by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions of Mueller’s appointment, according to the special counsel’s final report released Thursday.

    “Everyone tells me if you get one of these independent counsels it ruins your presidency. It takes years and years and I won’t be able to do anything. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me,” he added, according to notes from Jody Hunt, Sessions’s chief of staff at the time.

    Trump then reportedly became livid with Sessions, excoriating him for recusing himself from overseeing the probe and saying he should resign.

  129. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    Bystander – thanks for the explanation. When you were looking for a job you seemed very reasonable, analytical, and level-headed. Then after you found a new gig…it seemed like shortly thereafter you started to go a little of the rails. I get it now.

    In 2002-2006 I stayed home while my kids were small, no income. When I went back I took a gig for less money, but it didn’t bother me, I climbed back and higher quick enough. I accepted my step back for the luxury of 4-1/2 years off, but I noticed something strange when I re-entered the workplace. Interesting comments like, “I never made so much money, yet I feel like I’m getting poorer.” I felt a little poorer myself, but I just chalked it up to being off for so long.

    I think every bit of economic unrest that we see now, in many forms, is the result of wages really stalling after 2000. The 2008 collapse was a two-fer, two big hits in 8 years. I think every bit of discord we’ve seen since comes out of the stall in wages. I got the sense somewhere around 2012 or so that people were shifting their views about economic opportunity and starting to give up on making it themselves. If they were going to make it, they were going to have to take it from somebody who already made it.

    I think that time should have past with the current economy, but maybe not quite yet. I think the “need to take it” versus “need to make it” sentiment still prevails, hence Bernie Sanders.

    Pat,

    Just ruffling feathers. The supporters come out in full force…geez.

    CEOs Are Not Overpaid

    It is fashionable today to bash Big Business. And there is one issue on which the many critics agree: CEO pay. We hear that CEOs are paid too much (or too much relative to workers), or that they rig others’ pay, or that their pay is insufficiently related to positive outcomes. But the more likely truth is CEO pay is largely caused by intense competition.
