Majority of home shopping and home buying take place in spring and summer, however, there are some benefits to buying a house during the winter months. Here are five reasons to buy a home in winter.
1. Motivated sellers
Anyone who is willing to pack up and move in the dead of winter must really need (or want) to get out. This could help you leverage your negotiations on selling price and closing costs, and could potentially up the odds of the seller leaving some personal items behind in the sale!
The holidays are a special time of year, shared with friends, family and those you love. The Hudson Valley offers many holiday events each year for you to attend! Below is a list of holiday activities that are either coming up or that are still going on!
We recently celebrated Employee Appreciation Week at Rhinebeck Bank. As an organization we think it is important to take the time to say thank you and to show our appreciation for all that our employees do to help our organization succeed. To quote our COO, Jamie Bloom, “We are a better organization because of our employees. We make a difference in our customers’ lives, the lives of the people in our community, and each others’ lives. For that, we thank you.”
Last month my team, the Customer Solutions Center, celebrated Customer Service Week with some great laughs, great food and great comradery. It was a great time to celebrate our successes in 2017 and to look forward to the new projects coming up in 2018. We take great pride in providing outstanding service and support to all of our customers and fellow employees.
Do you remember the days of going to the bank with your paycheck, standing in line for a teller, making your deposit, getting some cash back, and asking for the balance in your accounts? After leaving, you remembered you needed to pay your car loan, so you trek back into the bank, ask for a blank check (because you forgot your checkbook), ask for your loan number, write the check, and then give the check to the teller.
Elder financial exploitation is the illegal or improper use of an elderly adult’s funds, property, or resources by another individual. This exploitation can take many forms, including scams, abuse by trusted individuals such as family members or friends, and predatory products and services marketed specifically to the elderly.
In fact quite a bit. As Rhinebeck Bank Relationship Managers, one of our roles is to attract, retain, assist and empower our customers. The same holds true for business owners in their respective businesses. Over the years through interactions with business owners, we have realized that we do many of the same things in order to be successful, and I’d like to share a few of these things we have in common.
Unless you have purchased a newly constructed home there is always some uncertainty regarding previous “events” in a home. Historically, real estate transactions were based on “Caveat Emptor” (Let the buyer beware). Over time, however, certain exceptions have been established by New York courts that help protect buyers by increasing a seller’s risk of liability for undisclosed defects.
These days there are so many avenues to buy products online, but what about a car? In this era, shopping online for a car is becoming commonplace. You can easily scan through numerous options without having to drive around to multiple dealerships looking for what you need. There is even an assortment of websites that cater to online car sales. If you decide to shop online for your next ride, be sure you still check out your final selection in person. You can buy a car online but unlike a pair of shoes, you can’t return it if it doesn’t “fit.” Generally speaking, a car is one item that once you have purchased it, you’re stuck with it.
