A Night with the Art

by Kijner & Sons International Realty




Summer nights in New York are vibrant and filled with cultural and social events. This is what makes this city so attractive to millions of creative minds, artists and art lovers around the globe. KSI Realty New York Inc.’s Broker and President Marc-Henri J. Kijner, was invited on June 21st, 2016 to discover iconic British born Shantell Martin's latest exhibition "Gone",
 at 3 Howard Street Gallery in the heart of Nolita. This private, invite only reception announced the visual artist imminent departure from New York City, and celebrated the impact it had on her practice over the past 7 years. Shantell is best known for her stream-of-consciousness drawings and lights projections.  




The event was impeccably hosted by a funky DJ, several Bombay Sapphire cocktails bars, and trays of French cheeses and sweet Beignets
 like in New Orleans. The Art displayed on white walls allowed the artist's inner feelings to be expressed to a diverse audience. This is another testimony of the influence that New York has on the world's culture scene. It is a constant reminder of the source of inspiration and the "Muse" that this grandiose city plays for many recognized and acclaimed artists such as Shantell Martin. 




KSI Realty New York Inc., has several commercial and residential properties available for rent or sale that are suitable for artists such as live/work lofts. Please 
contact us with your requests. One of our expert licensed salespersons will be delighted to assist you as well as share your passion for art, and everything that it encompasses.

Getting your House Ready for Sale

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

Most homebuyers will prefer a home that’s in turn-key, move-in condition. When looking at a home, buyers want to focus on what’s great, not what needs fixing or is in poor condition. Sellers can do a lot to make sure their home shows well and will get better offers than those that are in obvious need of TLC. The idea here is to take the attention off areas of superficial concern that buyers might otherwise focus on. Every negative adds up in the buyer’s mind, so it’s wise to do some basic updates and repairs before the home goes on the market.

Update Kitchen & Bathrooms

While a complete kitchen or bath remodel may not be possible or practical – and may not give a full return on the investment – some updating of these rooms will go a long way in appealing to potential buyers. In many neighborhoods upgraded and updated kitchens and baths are the norm and anything less will be looked upon negatively.

If the stove and refrigerator are clearly old and in less than perfect condition, they should be replaced. An updated kitchen faucet is another nice touch that doesn’t have to cost a lot. In the main bathroom, have the tile flooring professionally cleaned and the grout sealed. If the tile floor is in bad shape, replacing it with new, basic tile will make it a non-issue. Here, too, an updated faucet is often a good choice. If there is a shower curtain, replace it with a new, neutral style, or better yet, remove it altogether for a tidier appearance.

Clean or replace carpets

It should go without saying that carpets should be shampooed and in good condition. If the carpet looks worn and stained, the best choice is to simply replace it. The same goes for kitchen flooring – if it’s in bad shape, new flooring is the way to go. Depending on the situation, a new floor can often be installed right over the old one, which can mean less work and cost. Any replacement flooring should be neutral colored and does not have to be top-of-the line quality; the most important thing here is that it looks good and does not draw negative attention.

Enhance the Outdoors

Outdoors, replace any missing or damaged fence boards. It may be obvious that they’ve been replaced, but that’s preferable to leaving the fence in bad shape. Shrubs should be trimmed and kept neat, and weeds pulled. A thick (and quick!) application of bark mulch will help planting areas look clean and neat instead of a mess the new owner will have to deal with. Check around the exterior for any peeling paint or cracks that can present themselves as problems if not corrected.

Above all, remember that a buyer will have a better impression of a home that looks its best. After all, one of the first impressions you want a buyer to have is “It looks like this home has been well taken care of” – and let the home shine.

REBNY's Meeting - The State of the Manhattan Market

by Kijner & Sons International Realty




KSI Realty New York Inc.’s Broker and President, Marc-Henri J. Kijner, attended a panel discussion at the Real Estate Board of New York where top brokers and industry leaders discussed the state of the Manhattan market.

The 421 A program that was created by Mayor Bill De Blasio expired last January and experts composed of attorneys and industry leaders argued that due to the lack of tax incentives, developpers would most likely slow the development of affordable housing projects. Hence putting further emphasize on the hot market of the sub $3 million price range.

Resale units tend to stay on the market for less than a couple of days and buyers are competing even more to snatch their dream property. Higher cash reserves and better credit scores can certainly help strenghten the approval by the boards of both co-op and condominium buildings that prospective buyers are looking at.

New developments are generally not offering discounts but Attorney Steven Matz, one of the managing directors at Katz & Matz, expressed that they are seing more and more concessions on bigger deals such a free storage units being offered, upgrades given on fit and finish, or credit applied towards the transfer fees to attract buyers that are comparing with more affordable resale units, which tend to be larger but often in need of full gut renovation.

The conversation continued on the topic of rental market. Afterall, 70% of the real estate market in Manhattan is comprised of rental properties. Many brokers including myself, argued that June is the official kick-off month for the appartment hunt that thousand of new comers will engage in until late September.

There is no better time than now to find new rentals whereas landlords have updated, refurbished and repainted their units to attract as many quality tenants as possible. Using the help of a qualified and diligent licensed real estate salesperson can turn out to be an invaluable investment to help tenants snatch the best properties as soon as they hit the market. 



We at KSI Realty New York, believe that clients should sit down with our expert agents and discuss their needs. We help our valued customers pin point their area of interest based on their search criteria and finally draw potential property matches with the help of our online 
search tool.

During this panel discussion, we also talked about the emerging areas of Manhattan and everyone agreed that Harlem with Hamilton Heights was the most promising area. With beautiful browstone townhomes that can be up to 50% more affordable than their equivalents in the Upper West or East side of Manhattan, these products are a must buy! The extended subway lines on 2nd Avenue is also benefiting South Bronx and quality and affordable properties are also looking very promising for prospective investors.

For continuous update on the Manhattan market and lifestyle events about the city that never sleeps, please continue to follow us. For any questions, email us at nyc@kijner.com.
