We all know about Amazon’s most recent scandalous decision. On February 13th the online retail giant decided to withdraw its plans for a headquarters in Long Island City, NY only months after announcing it was coming to the area. What’s even more surprising is the effect the mere announcement had on the real estate market in the area. As soon as people heard Amazon was coming to town, the amount of home purchases doubled! Coincidence? I think not! However, with the sudden decision to back out of the project it remains to be seen where the values of these deals will go.

This is How Amazon Affected Long Island City Real Estate

Long Island City, Queens.

 This can a tricky situation for buyers, as well as sellers to navigate through. Here at Rothstein Appraisers we are ready to help anyone in Long Island City and the surrounding areas with any appraisal services to determine where you stand.

Real Estate: Then VS Now


We all know that technology has changed the entire world in recent decades. But what has this looked like for the Real Estate industry specifically? According to some of the most experienced agents from Compass Quarterly, things have changed so much that the practices from the old days are laughable. We, at Rothstein Appraisers have also found this to be true. Being in business for 33 years, we have experienced the changes we are talking about firsthand and have adapted to them. The idea of traveling from end to end of town to retrieve a signature for a report or validate a document is long gone. Fax machines were considered a leap in technological advancement, where as now they are obsolete. These are just some minor examples and we haven’t even touched upon smartphones yet.
