I'm not surprised. Inventory levels are at there lowest in years and that home was new construction. I'm seeing prices start to pick up particularly quickly in the Levittown area and other parts of Nassau County.

Skimmer Lane, not Skinner. While that house may have lots of rooms and an indoor jacuzzi, it's so close to the huge house next door to it that they could probably borrow sugar window to window!!

Good point Jessica also passed by there during a rain storm it's graded wrong the Levittown motor parkway was gushing from the back of the house to the front and creating a mud bath

It's a brand new home that's why it's $600,000. If you were to buy one in Brooklyn like it, it would be worth $100,000 more.

Definitely not a Levittown home. It has a basement.

Too bad it's in Levittown.

How much you want to bet that basement will be rented illegally. Along with half the other house, please no more of these monsters here. i hope the neighbors turn them in if they want to rent it to multiple families.

If it wasnt for the NIMBYs there would be more legal apartments available and then there would be no market for illegal apartments.

Here is a funny fact from you know whos office You could rent rooms in your house but cant rent a apt in your house. So what happens we have a house divided with rooms for rent yeah that will make the neighborhood look great when all sorts of people sneak in and out of the houses
