Syosset is in the northeast section of the Town of Oyster Bay. Its central location and top-rated school district are two selling points that are drawing buyers in, real estate agents say.

Syosset High School ranked 28th in New York and 181 nationally, according to the 2015 Best High Schools report from U.S. News & World Report.

In comparison to other communities, home prices remain fairly consistent in the Syosset area, says Navaretta. “Syosset has always been ahead of the trend,” she adds. “Whenever we see an increase in the market, we see it here first. After Sandy, our houses were in great demand because people don’t have to worry about flooding and flood insurance.”

The downtown area is along Jackson Avenue, where the Long Island Rail Road station is. The shopping district is lined with boutiques, restaurants and retail stores. Jericho Turnpike is the main commercial shopping hub.

Buyers can find Colonials, capes, split-levels and ranch-style homes. Prices generally start in the $500,000s for a home on a 50-by-100-foot lot and can easily move into the millions with two acres-plus.

Maria Siringo of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates says she is seeing many young families from the tri-state area and the boroughs, as well as international purchasers, interested in the newer homes that offer lots of square footage and more current styles. “There is definitely a demand for new construction. I am finding that a lot of people don’t want to do renovations these days, and would rather spend more money and have a house that will be turnkey,” says Siringo.
