Seems every holiday season invites the subject of real estate among loved ones, in a manner of speaking.
Now it doesn’t come up the way you think, where you’ll overhear 2 brokers tucked in a corner of the room talking shop at the office Christmas party.
Rather, it occurs when you realize you don’t have enough seats for everyone at the dining room table and your forced to ask your 19 year old to sit at the little kids table so uncle Tommy can sit next to aunt Pam.
Moments like these remind you how small your place is and why it may be time to start thinking about getting a bigger place to live in Queens.
Calling Queens home
These properties are often sitting on large property lots that range from 3,000 sq ft (30 x 100), all the way up to 5,000 sq ft (50 x 100).
You’ll can drive through Cambria Heights, Laurelton, Saint Albans or Rosedale and won’t find more than 30 homes on any city block, with each of them boasting …
- private driveways
- single car garages
- big backyards
- 3 to 4 entrances
Great communities exist in these neighborhoods where civic-minded homeowners take pride in their surroundings and exhibit it through home improvements as well as joint beautification projects.
Queens is in the house
Now a house isn’t a home unless you can invite family, friends and neighborhoods in to celebrate milestones with you.
And homes in south-east Queens neighborhoods make hosting large gatherings easy given how accommodating they are.
For instance, you can often find ..
- hardwood flooring
- formal dining rooms
- spacious living rooms
- guest bathrooms
- large basements
- and open kitchens
And it’s not uncommon for many of these properties to contain unique architectural treatments exclusive to a home, like
- built-in china closets
- recessed book shelves
- and more
So if you want your next Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner gathering to accommodate 10 or more guests, then the first thing you need to do is get a bigger place in Queens.
