The Amityville Horror. Joey Buttafuco. Joel Rifkin. These are unsavory yarns woven into the tapestry of Long Island’s history. Even though the negativity of these stories dominated the media at the time, the natural beauty of Long Island and the tremendous sense of community of our neighborhoods prevailed. Sure people still remember these dark events in Long Island’s history but every day families — 3.5 million people — choose to live their American Dream here because we are not defined by these occasional bad events.
Today, we are in the midst of another dark story; this time along Ocean Parkway. As human beings, we can’t help but shudder in horror as law enforcement makes its discoveries during the ongoing investigation. As fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters, we hope for justice and closure for the families of the victims. As Long Islanders, we will get past this. We always do.
Jim Netter, our Broker/Owner/Mentor at Netter Real Estate, was interviewed by CNN this week with regard to the impact that the investigation is having on real estate in our area. Excerpted from the online CNN article:
Jim Netter, a real estate broker in West Islip, said he has not seen property values diminish and has seen no change in sales. In fact, the media attention has led to “an increase in the number of inquiries” about homes in the area, he said.
