Tell us how your post-Covid-19 home will change

[caption id="attachment_27569" align="aligncenter" width="960"] What's your post-Covid home like? A solar powered Jetson's home in the clouds with his'n hers Zoom rooms? Tell us!
By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
We'd like to know how your housing needs have changed recently and what you plan on doing about it. The lifestyles of many many people have been altered significantly by pandemic rules. The home you own may not be as accommodating as it once was - its size, layout and location may no longer "fit."
Think about how the the Covid-19 pandemic has changed your idea of a functional home. For example, are you struggling with school aged kids and find yourself needing extra room for your suddenly always-at-home family? Are you trying to figure out a place to home-school the kids in your existing home?
Have you discovered that working from home is more productive than you thought? Can a different home setup allow you to somehow keep ...

Help US rattle Mark Zuckerberg's brain!

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

Starbucks just joined the #StopHateforProfit movement today, so did we, (#globalpropertysystems,) by suspending our July advertising on Facebook and all other social media in protest of allowing hate speech. Here's why you should too.
The movement's website stophateforprofit.org cites numerous examples of how Facebook has allowed hate speech on it's platform, including:
"They allowed incitement to violence against protesters fighting for racial justice in America in the wake of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks and so many others.
They named Breitbart News a “trusted news source” and made The Daily Caller a “fact checker” despite both publications having records of working with known white nationalists.
They turned a blind eye to blatant voter suppression on their platform."
StopHateforProfit.com points out that putting a dent in ...

What to do on Saturday's Hudson Valley Vernal Equinox.

The Vernal Equinox, the longest day of the year, happens this year on a Saturday. Doesn't it behoove us to make good use of all this extra daylight by attending an event (or events) in the Hudson Valley?
Vernal What?
There are only two times of the year when the Earth's axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun, resulting in a "nearly" equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. These events are referred to as Equinoxes and will occur on March 19th at 9:49 pm MDT (Vernal Equinox - the first day of Spring) and again on September 22nd at 7:30 am MDT (Autumnal Equinox - the first day of fall).
A Few Things to Do on the Longest Day of the Year in the Hudson Valley

It's Phase 2! What You Can Do Now That You Couldn't Do Then.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Phase Two for the Hudson Valley's re-emergence from the Covid shutdown has commenced. (Blow the herald of heavenly trumpets I can finally go have fun.) But what fun is awaiting Hudson Valley residents? First of all, realize that social distancing is still in effect. Wear your mask, keep your distance, wash your hands and stay home if you feel sick. Store staff will have more to do: work behind the Plexiglas, use the hand wash and wear gloves if handling food.
You can get retail therapy. Sort of.
For the first time since the lock-down began, you can shop INSIDE any retail store. You may still encounter "One Goes In When One Comes Out" standing in line as store occupancy is capped at 50%. Malls are out however, unless the store you're visiting has access from the parking lot. Still, retail therapy is retail therapy.
You can get a haircut. At last.
Finally we don't have to pretend we're the Chewbacca ...

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 ...
