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.

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 ...

Move me out of New York City!

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
05-13-2020
Rockland County, NY is closer than ever to qualifying for re-opening of non-essential businesses. Based on guidelines mandated by the state and drawn up by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rockland has met four out of the seven criteria. The Mid-Hudson region as a whole has five of seven criteria met.
This is good news for residents itching to get out of the quarantine, and businesses eager to serve them. And no businesses are more eager than Realtors. Until now, real estate in the region has had little choice but to find ways to transact business within social distancing guidelines. (Thank goodness for Zoom!)
The real estate drums are rumbling because Rockland is currently one of the Mid-Hudson Valley counties in the bullseye of buyers from New York City. An increasing number of New Yorkers are anxious to leave NYC to escape the Covid-19 pandemic. Some are look ...

Buying a house isn't impossible. It only looks that way.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Social distancing and unessential businesses aside, it is still possible to sell or buy a house in the Hudson Valley. Even though we are restricted in how we go about it, we have transacted real property throughout the pandemic shutdown within the parameters of viral quarantine. You can still buy or sell a house.
The Facts
People are listing their homes for sale every day. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors estimated this spring would see a 10% drop in home sales. Ten percent is a big number nationally. But the Hudson Valley is uniquely positioned to be highly sought after by New York City buyers looking for a way out of the city, either temporarily or permanently.
Besides that, a 10% loss means that 90% of transactions which would have happened without the shutdown will still happen. Why? Because the real estate industry is adapting to the new normal. More agenci ...

Why didn't your home sell?

If you’ve had your home for sale on the Hudson Valley real estate market recently and it didn’t sell, there must have been a reason. Do you know what it was? Even in these hard times, we are selling homes. In fact, considering the few houses on the market and the many people looking for a home, it’s a great time to list. We can sell your house because we do real estate differently. CONTACT US at Global Property Systems Real Estate to discuss how.
