Don’t forget your pets when selling your home.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Some people just can’t seem to get enough time with pets. In fact, last year, Airbnb began offering a new category to their "Airbnb Experiences" called "Airbnb Animal Experiences." In that subcategory, visitors can choose out of 1,000 (yup—one thousand) experiences involving all types of animals from all over the world. We happen to know of one such Airbnb listing in Piermont, NY which offers guests the pleasure of spending time with their pig. (I guess we’d have to call that an Airbn-P.) Undoubtedly there are many more in the rural reaches of the Hudson Valley.
Most households include a pet of some kind. Sixty-seven percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).
When selling your home, your pets are members of the family, but not everyone wants to m ...

Make this effective disinfectant at home.

April 8, 2020
From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
For many years we owned Bunbury's Coffee Shop in Piermont, NY. My husband Tim used to make a very simple, very effective disinfectant to sanitize cooking surfaces, utensils and dishware. The Rockland County Health Department held a seminar on food handling and food service safety procedures, and recommended this formula as a way of ensuring safe food prep conditions. In this day of empty store shelves and a need for healthy practices and supplies, we would like to share it with our readers.
The formula is simple: Bleach and water. Yup. Good old Clorox, which is still available in most stores.
Now before you start using bleach everywhere, it's important to know that bleach is caustic and can emit potentially lethal fumes.1 That's why it's important to dilute your bleach and ensure that it's not used at full-strength and not mix it with other solutions and chemicals. Different surfac ...

Don't make this mistake when hiring a commercial REALTOR®.

When hiring a REALTOR®, be sure he or she is skilled in the type of property transaction you intend to make. The truth is, different real estate dealings come with different regulations, and if your agent isn't an expert in the type of transaction you're conducting, it could come back to bite you not only during the transaction buy down the road as well. 

Here's a real-world scenario as related to us by Pearl Insurance, our risk management specialists, in which an agent well-versed in residential sales decided to venture into commercial sales and ended up being sued.

THE SITUATION


A real estate agent with a successful background in residential sales received a request from a light manufacturer to help locate a new business space to rent. The agent had been selling residential homes for over 30 years, and he welcomed the opportunity to finally put his commercial real estate knowledge to use.

THE PROBLEM


The agent was considered an expert in residential tr ...
