If you have questions about home ownership, three HUD-certified housing organizations, which offer homebuyer counseling, would be happy to talk with you. Westchester has not-for-profit organizations that can assist you too. They may perform similar or different services and may serve specifically defined areas within Westchester.

How can I find homes that are for sale or rent in Westchester?
You can start with Web sites that list available real estate in Westchester County. The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors offers a link to a database of available homes, condominiums and co-operatives. The county newspaper, The Journal News, offers classified listings too.

You can access the national database of available rental apartments, where you'll find listing of apartments, condominiums and town homes. This site offers free e-mail alerts for new availabilities and contains up to six photographs for each listing.

The Penny Saver offers listings online as well as through their free publication. Most of these are apartments being offered by the owner of the property without broker representation. Many apartments listed are located in homes and are commonly called “accessory apartments."

Are there real estate organizations that represent all real estate professionals and can provide me with real estate sales and prices information?
Yes, the Westchester Board of Realtors represents all real estate brokers in Westchester and Putnam Counties. The board maintains a database on residential sales prices and levels as well as access to the multiple listing service that lists property sales.
