I saw the house too, the inside looks pretty good, the yard is very small IMO, no picture of the kitchen? $459,000 seems like alot for this home but I am not sure what the comparables are in Mineola. Homes are too close together like in queens. The home has some charm but the party driveway? I guess that means it's shared? No thanks. the fact that the property is small and it's only a 1 car garage would make me pass on this house.

My neighbor had her house on the market 2 years and nothing. She took it off the market and is going to try this summer again.

Hey, can I throw my sons in to sweeten the deal?

That's meant to be a decorative storm door! The iron scroll work also serves to protect the screen and prevents birds from hitting the glass...

A "no name" place in Ridgewood Queens.

Houses in Queens cost more and it is apparent the realtor does not understand the LI market.
Very true! The Queens market is a lot stronger and much different than Nassau/Suffolk. The asking price is a lot higher than the purchase price in 2003 - and in many areas of Nassau/Suffolk, we're back to the levels of 2002/2003; IMHO that should be reflected in the current asking price--but is NOT.

Based on the (limited) photos of the previous listing, it looks like the house has now either brick veneer or they took the white paint off underlying brick since they bought it.

I know ... I know ... Just that kind of decorating reminds me of being in Bklyn or Queens where so many houses have similarly decorative bars on the doors and windows ... even "specialized" ironwork that fit around window air conditioners! Ironwork on houses is a big biz there because I guess people are afraid of break-ins. (On another note, I always wondered how they felt safe in case of fire with all those bars on the windows ...)
