What Can a Buyer and Seller Do?
3 Ways to prepare so you’re ready when this is over.
Recently, the federal government and New York State have deemed Real Estate an “essential” service. Real Estate has been, and always will be a pillar of our economy. Equally important is the many who have serious, pressing, and sometimes urgent needs that require the purchase and sale of a property. Not being able to do this could have a tremendously negative impact on those in need of such a transaction.
For one reason or another, regardless of what is going on in the world, there’s always someone with a need to buy, sell, or rent a property. Some of you may have been in the process before the recent events of the current pandemic, and others may have been getting ready to do so. If you are someone who needs to make a move in the near future, then this is for you. While we’re not currently allowed to physically show homes, we have some tips to help you get ready for when you are.
