What makes a dream listing? Well, that all depends on the dreamer. It might be a motivated seller or an educated buyer. Maybe it’s a classic construction or a modern floor plan. Could be water views or wild amenities. Our gathering of Long Island real estate experts and insiders share what defines their idea of a listing that would make their dreams come true.

My dream listing is any house that I can do a deal on within a week—it doesn’t matter what the price is. It doesn’t matter if it’s an estate, if it’s a saltbox cottage—I don’t care what it is. I’d like to have something that generates interest, that I can move very quickly, and where I can get buyer and seller from Point A to Point B. I really don’t care about the price. It’s just having something, grabbing it and moving it. That also contributes to my perception of success to others, that I can move product. That’s my dream listing right there.

In a seller’s market, the time is now to be well-versed in selling your home. A seller who’s motivated, open to suggestions and flexible is key. Many sellers benefit from an early inspection to ensure their home is up-to-standards prior to listing. Qualities of a highly marketable home include a minimalist mindset with decluttered spaces, newer appliances and freshly painted neutral wall colors. High-quality photos are key! Open layouts and organized rooms promote buyers’ abilities to envision themselves in your listing. Ensure that your home is ready for market with a well-informed and hardworking agent who is knowledgeable about your area and will qualify your buyers for a seamless and smooth transaction.

The house sits high above the Great South Bay with endless views and sunsets that just take your breath away. It is a new modern flat-roof contemporary with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. It includes an open-view kitchen, a great room with a gas fireplace, multiple bedrooms for the extended family, and two home offices to work and study in. The lower level includes a gym with a sauna, a wide-screen movie theater, walk-in wine room and a large play area. The client turns to me and says, “I’ll take it.” And of course that is when I wake up.
