Pandemic responsible for mass migration in America.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Roughly one fifth of all Americans have moved or know someone who did during the Covid-19 pandemic so far. That tidbit comes from a recent survey by the Pew Research Center that revealed 22 percent of us - literally millions of people - have relocated to a more quarantine-friendly residence or know someone who has. The data is based on a survey Pew conducted in early June with nearly 10,000 people.
Reported in Inman News on July 8, the survey results show that 3 percent of the survey respondents themselves moved, either permanently or temporarily. Another 6 percent said someone moved into their home. And an additional 14 percent said that they know someone who has moved as a result of Covid-19.
The findings suggest that in addition to major health and economic disruption, the pandemic has had huge migratory impacts on Americans’ lives. Most affected were young adults - ages 18 to 29. Young Am ...

Racism in real estate: When words matter.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Inman News reported that the Houston Association of Realtors MLS has removed the terms “master bedroom” and “master bathroom” from its MLS listing descriptions as part of a renewed national focus on racism and discrimination. First reported by a handful of Texas publications on Tuesday, HAR now uses the terms “primary bedroom” and “primary bathroom,” effective June 15.
We heartily applaud HAR's actions regarding these terms and the implications they bear. We are following HAR's lead, and voluntarily changing all uses of "master" bedrooms and baths in our listing's literature as quickly as possible.
But there are some other common real estate terms I would like to see eliminated from our nomenclature.
Red Lining
I would love to eliminate Red Lining, both the practice and thus the need for the term.
Created in the post-depression 1930s by Federal hou ...

Do you own real estate? You're in luck!

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell Zoom-meets at his desk prior to issuing the June 10, 2020 economic report.

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
If you a home owner, you are an investor too. Home ownership is one of the most widely-held forms of economic investment. And guess what, investors? You're in luck. Real estate is poised to lead the way in the process of recovering from the 2020 economic down-turn.
Yesterday, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell announced that the Fed plans to keep mortgage rates near historic lows for the foreseeable future - several years at least. He also revealed the US Federal Reserve intends to continue purchasing mortgage-backed securities. Both are good news for people who own homes, and for people who will be purchasing a home from them in the next few years.
Economists agree. Ivy Zelman of Zelman & Associates said recently, “Housing will fare better than expected during this s ...

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 ...

An up-side to being turned upside down.

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate
April 28, 2020.
As a real estate brokerage in the state of New York, my team of agents and I have been told by Governor Cuomo and the New York State Association of Realtors that we cannot have any face to face interactions with other agents, our clients and our service providers. Since much of traditional real estate has been conducted at a personal level, this has made it difficult, if not impossible to operate as we have in the past. We’ve been turned upside down.
You may be surprised to find out that I think this is a good thing.
Sometimes it takes a shake-up to stimulate change. In the 19 years that I’ve been in real estate, I’ve been talking with people in and out of the industry about digitally transforming the closing process. For a long time it’s been “We’ll do it someday.” Thanks to the quarantine, that day has come.
