Attention to Detail - First-Time Homebuyers - CB Prime Properties

More and more first-time homebuyers have been looking at Albany homes for sale. Buying a first home is complex but rewarding – and our real estate agents are always glad to help.

First-time homebuyers have some advantages that others don't. They are eligible for a variety of programs to help them reach their goals while saving money. In many cases, they take on less risk by entering the housing market, and they can adjust their timeline to take advantage of the best conditions.

But being a first-time buyer can also be challenging. When you jump into a complicated process like buying a house, you don't know precisely what you don't know. That can lead to mistakes and oversights that may be costly in the long run. The more research you do, the better off you'll be!

So, what do you need to know to be successful as a first-time homebuyer?

Coffee Shops Around Catskill Region - CB Prime Properties

The Catskill Region is famous for its wild mountain scenery, and we think those mountains look their best first thing in the morning as the fog is lifting, with a hot cup of coffee in your hand. It's perfect. 

National Espresso Day is coming right up on November 23. In honor of the occasion, our real estate agents are delighted to share some of their favorite coffee shops in the Catskills. 

  • Bluestone Coffee Roasting Company - 138 Partition St., Saugerties, NY 12477
    Bluestone Coffee Roasting Company offers a tremendous variety of coffees roasted to perfection in-house, as well as some of the best lattes in the Catskills.  The shop also has a warm, welcoming ambiance that makes you want to sit and sip a while. The baristas at Bluestone can always be counted on to deliver a rich, smooth espresso or an expertly-crafted cup of coffee. A stone's throw from these Saugerties homes for sale, Bluestone Roasters also have a great outdoor patio and a menu of tasty baked goods and brunch staples.

Condo or House - Buy a Home - CB Prime Properties

Our real estate agents are meeting more buyers who are interested in condos. A condominium isn't right for everyone, but it just might turn out to be your ideal new home. When looking at Albany homes for sale, it's a wise idea to check out all your options!

In the Albany area, buyers often find themselves choosing between a single-family home or a condo. A condo is a private residence within a larger complex, but it is distinct from the average apartment: You own a condo and can buy and sell it as you wish.

In practice, a condo offers many benefits of an apartment, such as exterior maintenance and lawn care, with few drawbacks. A condominium community provides a high standard of amenities and community an apartment can't match.
