How Disclosures protects you, your health and your money

We have noticed a recent up-tick of home owners selling their homes without the use of a Realtor. We will be the first to admit that now is a better time than most to sell a home yourself. Real estate agents have been hamstrung by restrictions imposed by the state and national real estate agencies to protect buyers and sellers during showings and other traditionally face-to-face interactions in the process of selling a home. But while the market is hot for sellers, selling now comes with a new set of dangers that Realtors can protect buyers and sellers from.
A dangerous profession
According to a Report published by the National Association of Realtors, nearly 40% of realtors have been in a situation that made them afraid for their safety while on the job. Every year, more and more agents report being attacked, and dozens of them are murdered. Letting a stranger into your home makes you at risk for theft or a planned future burglary. You will also be held responsible if the visitor ...

Beat the competition to your next new home!

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Real estate is possibly just two weeks away from becoming once again an essential, and appreciated, New York business. Governor Cuomo has announced that a limited number of industries are allowed to resume operation under Phase One re-opening guidelines: construction, agriculture, forestry, fishing, hunting, retail (limited to curbside or in-store pickup or drop off), manufacturing and wholesale trade. Real estate will follow in Phase 2.
Mid-Hudson Valley real estate will be allowed to officially operate again in two weeks if the region fulfills its last metric in the chase to prove itself adequate for Phase One business openings - we still need 857 more people taking the online course to become contact tracers. 
If the first phase proves safe and successful and COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to decline, real estate will return in early June.
Interested in buying or selling a home the M ...

April 2020 numbers show Hudson Valley Real Estate Market down.

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
April 21, 2020
If you are planning to buy or sell a home in the Hudson Valley any time soon, you may be interested in statistical information showing recent market activity in Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties. Our MLS registers and aggregates data on all such activity, and it is available to anyone through their real estate agent or Realtor. The charts in this blog come from the OneKey Hudson Valley MLS.
The reports for April are in, and generally show a down-tick in activity across most markets. Westchester new listings were off 14.5% from April 2018, as sellers began to back off due to uncertainty in the first month of the COVID-19 shutdown rules. Rockland and Orange counties also showed fewer new listings to a lesser degree.

Orange



Pending Sales came up a little short across the boards for all three counties. Keep in mind that pending sales figures a ...

Your Hudson Valley home may be a goldmine!

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

Even as real estate is restrained by state policy as a non-essential business, we’re watching buyers scrambling to find homes to buy outside of New York City in the Mid-Hudson Valley. If you own a property north of the city and have plans to sell this season, you could be sitting on a very rewarding asset.
Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, people living in NYC are fleeing their high-rises and moving to Dutchess, Ulster, Orange and Rockland counties. Stuck in apartments with their neighbors, walking in small hallways and squeezing into tight elevators, city residents are dreaming of being able to walk around a quiet neighborhood or relax in a suburban cul-de-sac.


Adding to the claustrophobic conditions are two new factors influencing people. After two months of working from home, people are realizing that it IS possible to work at home efficiently. Not only do workers enjoy a ...

Season starts for local farm markets

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

May 14, 2020


The Nyack Farmer's Market will hold a "soft opening" today, May 14 continuing their every Thursday tradition during warm weather months, opening from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year's market comes  with a new list of safety protocols to follow social distancing guidelines.


Market guide lines can be viewed in detail HERE, but their protocols follow what we've all gotten used to - wear a mask, keep your distance, don't touch the goods, etc. They ask that we pre-order and pre-pay when possible from the list of vendors on the Nyack Farmers Market page.


Farmer's markets are a quaint and delightful tradition in towns and villages on both sides of the Hudson River. They offer an easy, reliable way for residents to have access to locally produced foods. Stands proudly display overflowing produce, fresh and smoked meats, fresh-baked pies, breads, muffins and more. Vendors typical ...
