Purchasing and selling real estate in New York
There exist distinct differences in the real estate services you can expect in the US. While extensive information is available online through our guides and in person through consultations with a Move Consultant, the following are a few essentials to consider:
- Typically, there are two “sides” to any real estate transaction: buyer/seller or leasee/leasor.
- Most often, each side will have its own real estate agent representation
- Available properties are shared between real estate agencies, which allows one real estate agent to show everything
- Verbal agreements are not binding in every state. Many will require a contract to be signed and delivered to both parties in order to be a binding agreement
- Real estate agents must hold an active license from their state of operations. To maintain a license, agents must attend continuing education classes and abide by all real estate laws
Whether your goal is to move to, invest or purchase a secondary residence in the New York City areas of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Riverdale or areas around the US, we would be pleased to be your local experts.
