The Catskills and Hudson Valley have long been a mecca for those looking to escape crowded metro areas. In fact, the majority of our clients are weekenders and second home buyers. We have extensive experience, and can help you find that perfect country getaway, from the cutest little cottage to a gated equestrian estate.
We can help you through the process every step of the way. We know that it can be hard to be here for every meeting, inspection and walkthrough related to your purchase. That’s what we’re here for. We’ll make sure that the process is as smooth as possible by being your buyer’s agent on the ground.
The Second Home Search
After we’ve had a chance to speak or email about your home “wish list,” we’ll do a comprehensive search and put together a selection of homes for your visit. We’ll create a short list based on your responses to our selections. When you arrive in town, you’ll only see the finest the area has to offer in your price range.
Offers and Negotiations
After you’ve found your dream home, we’ll write up the offer to purchase, and email, fax or overnight it to you for your signature. We’ll take care of communicating with the sellers agent and will negotiate aggressively on your behalf. Our goal is to get you the best home with the best terms.
We’ll provide you with a list of licensed NYS home inspectors so you can make an appointment at a time that suits you. We can also arrange the inspection for you. If you can’t be here to attend the inspection, we’ll attend as your representative, and will report back to you. If any conditions arise in the inspection that need remediation, we’ll negotiate that for you, too.
It’s especially important that you have local legal representation. We’ll provide you with a list of respected local real estate attorneys that will make sure your interests are protected.
Walkthrough and Closing
If you can’t be here to attend the walkthrough, we’ll attend as your representative, and will report back to you. We’ll let your attorney know immediately if anything is amiss. If you can’t make it for the closing, and are paying cash, we can take arrange that for you too.
