These are the new realities of home buying, and agents say many of these protocols are likely to stick around. Buyers should expect hand sanitizer and masks to be part of any home-buying experience. But other aspects of house hunting andRead More →

After a difficult few months, New York City’s real estate market is bouncing back. This week, after the city entered phase 2 of its reopening, contract activity increased 41%, reaching the highest numbers since the end of March, when the country shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak.
