Can’t stand Pandemic living? Move to Belize!

After a while, pandemic sheltering at home is like the lyrics in Hotel California, the Eagle’s iconic song. “You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave."
Actually, if you want to leave, you can. Consider moving to Belize.
Formerly known as British Honduras, Belize has long been known as a tropical tourist destination, for its world-class diving, fishing, and snorkeling, lush jungles, ancient Mayan temples and miles of white sand beaches, Currently, Belize is in the middle of a building boom, with investors building both residential and hotel properties.
For Americans interested in moving to the Caribbean or owning a tropical island rental, Belize offers several advantages. It is the only Central American country where English is the official language, with Spanish, Mayan and Creole also spoken. It is politically and economically stable. 1991, the ODECA countries (Spanish: Organización de Estados Centroamericanos) signed the Protocol of Tegucigalp ...

Bigger is better for buyers in the Hudson Valley luxury home market.

Spacious homes like this one outside Newburgh, NY have become increasingly popular. This property on 38 Susan Drive is listed at $1.2 million.


By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
It seems like only a few months ago that demand for large properties in the Hudson Valley - million dollar mega mansions, private estates, and luxury ranches - had declined significantly over the previous few years. Nationwide surveys now indicate that the health crisis has brought to light how valuable more square footage and carefully designed floor plans can be. Home offices, multi-purpose rooms, gyms, and theaters are becoming more popular, and some families are finding the space they need for these upgrades in the luxury market.


For Hudson Valley buyers looking for larger homes, steady increases in equity might be what makes a move possible. Leveraging home equity makes it easier to afford the down payment on a luxury home, and current low int ...

Design your home BEFORE you move in!

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.

Imagine you're about to close on your new house, and in a few weeks you'll be moving in. You undoubtedly have thought about where to put your stuff - will the sofa fit the living room? Will the dining table be too big? Too small? Or is it time to replace it? Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to plan every aspect of your move before it happens?
There is. The process is called Move Management and some interior designers offer it as part of their services. Interior designers do a lot of things behind the scenes. Most clients never consider these services until they experience the benefits they provide. Furniture and space planning are some of those services.
Simone Eisold, an interior designer in the Hudson Valley offers Move Management and organizes client spaces for a move. She explains, "What you do with your space and how you arrange your things is incredibly important, especially when mo ...

Upstate Hudson Valley sees sudden surge in home buyers, renters.

This home on River Road in Piermont, NY rented for $10,000 a month during the Coronavirus outbreak. New York City dwellers are looking for ways to escape city living for life in the suburbs.
May 8, 2020
From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
As the nightly news drones on about down markets and the Coronavirus, we're seeing more and more buyers and renters looking for escape to a house, a fresh-mowed lawn and a two car garage in the Hudson Valley. New York City residents are opting for a split-level home on a cul-de-sac after decades of apartment living. A wave of city-dwellers is currently hitting the inner and outer suburbs of NYC, looking to leave the city lights for greener pastures.
So why are New Yorkers choosing to abandon city life? The short answer is, they believe that the old ways of city life - strolling in parks, grabbing drinks at bars and living close together - may be gone after Corona. They believe social distancing su ...
