Highlands Neighborhood walkable to downtown White Plains

    Who likes looking for new homes in The Highlands neighborhood of White Plains?
What are the homes like, average price and taxes?

Who and Why?  Many people who are living in NYC or the boroughs,  or other cities across the country, who want the convenience of being near a city for restaurants, entertainment, the 32 minute express train ride to the city on Metro North;  and who are just used to being near a city that is “alive” at night!  The Highlands is ideal. It has sidewalks that neighbors actually walk their dogs and say hello to eachother!  
Lower Highlands are all walkable to downtown.

The Highlands is mainly comprised of charming older pre-war homes on very small lots. Tree lined streets with a true neighborhood feeling right down the street from the bustling downtown White Plains pubs, hotels, and restaurants.

Size, Price and Taxes: The homes average between 1700 and 2400 square feet.  Just did a comparative market analysis for a buyer and found that the average price in the last six months is $540,000. Taxes average between $6,000 and $9,000 in the neighborhood.  Northern Highlands average a big higher, with larger homes and properties. A beautiful older tudor in Northern Highlands that was 2900 square feet went for $682,000 and taxes were about $14,000.

So, if you are considering a move up from NYC, Chicago or Boston and find that the NYC  is just too expensive for your budget, I’m happy to give you a tour of White Plains neighborhoods including The Highlands.
