First Time Home Buyers? Welcome to NYC Real Estate! It’s not as scary as it seems, I promise!
I work with a ton of first-time home buyers, people purchasing Cooperatives, Condos and Townhouses in NYC! The first time I speak with my clients, I can sense how intimidated and nervous they are! And it’s completely expected – after all, this is NOT an arena you should be well versed in. It’s exactly why you should surround yourself with a good team of people that ARE knowledgeable! When you have a strong Real Estate Agent and Attorney, people who know the business and who do this for a living, the process becomes streamlined and you might even enjoy it!
This is not the time to try and cut costs – I cannot even tell you how many times I have had someone call me and tell me about how they tried to start the process with an attorney who was a “family friend” – someone whose focus or main area of practice was NOT Real Estate Law, especially in NYC, but who was just trying to do them a solid – and it just didn’t work; in fact, it made the client even more stressed out! So they came to me, we sorted everything out, and we got the deal done!
If you are a first-time home buyer, congratulations! Buying in NYC is a huge accomplishment, and something you should be excited and happy about! Surround yourself with a team that feels the same way, and knows how to get you to the Closing table!
Best of luck!
