5pheasantrunFor those of you bemoaning Scarsdale real estate taxes, check out what your neighbors in Edgemont are paying. Here are just a few listings of comparably priced houses on the market in Scarsdale and Edgemont, with the real estate taxes for each.

However it should be noted that though the taxes on the Edgemont homes are higher, they are both on larger pieces of property. The home on Pheasant Run is on .419 acres, while the similarly priced home on Montrose in Scarsdale is on only .229 acres. So perhaps the sale prices have adjusted to compensate for the tax assessments.

lockbox.jpgWhen you list your home, the goal of your real estate agent is to get the maximum number of qualified potential buyers to view your home. Of course, not at the expense of safety! That is why most brokers in Scarsdale are using Electronic Lockboxes. Unlike mechanical lockboxes, electronic lockboxes require a user-specific access card only available to real estate professionals who are members of the Westchester Putnam MLS to access the keys inside. Use of the card allows the lockbox to record the identity of the person accessing the box for every visit. Each card user has their own personal code they must use each time they insert their card to allow access to the lockbox. This prevents the finder of a lost card from using a lockbox to enter a home. Cardholders must recharge their card every three days. When a card is recharged, data is transmitted to a central database and can be accessed by the listing office. Using an electronic lockbox allows a listing agent to make it convenient for all agents to show your home to prospective buyers, thereby maximizing the number of showings while maintaining a detailed account of everyone who has used the key stored in the lockbox.

Market Update:

Currently, there are 136 active listings in the Scarsdale School District. There are 73 listings under contract. 27 of them are in the $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 range. Many of these houses sold with multiple bids. There is high demand for houses ranging from $700,000 through $5,000,000. It is a great time to sell. Interest rates remain relatively low for buyers. Capital gains tax has not been increased this year for long time owners looking to sell. Unlike the national real estate market, the Scarsdale market is thriving and you can feel secure knowing that if you do decide to sell your home, it can be safely shown.

duckpondMore Scarsdale homes may be destined for the wrecking ball. Among the most prominent, is the house at 1 Duck Pond Road. Prospective buyers who were interested in tearing down the house spent considerable time and resources arguing that the home did not meet any of the criteria for preservation and the deadlocked Committee for Historic Preservation failed to vote to protect the home . Empty for several years, the home has become a white elephant, with the new buyers contending that renovating the house would be far too costly.

This past week, the house, which sits on 3.73 acres was sold for $4,750,000 and presumably it will soon be demolished to clear the way for a new house on the Duck Pond. Drive by and take a last look.

The Committee for Historic Preservation will meet on Tuesday night April 26, to consider the fate of five additional homes.

On the hit list are the following:

21 Morris Lane
21 Morris Lane: A 1968 home with a wraparound porch that sits on a flag lot off Morris Lane

60 Sheldrake Road: a 1950’s ranch that backs onto Fenway Golf Course

60 Sheldrake Road







39 Oxford Road
39 Oxford Road: There is an application from RGF Development Corp to tear down the house and divide the property into a two lot subdivision. The Planning Board will consider the subdivision at their meeting on Wednesday night April 27.
