If you’re in the market for a brand-new build or a fixer-upper, a first home or a weekend getaway, your unique needs, goals and rights as real estate buyers must be paramount. You want to find the right house for you, at the best possible terms, and you shouldn’t have to achieve this on your own.

For Buyers: Real Estate News and Information from the Ulster County Board of REALTORS®

For nearly three quarters of home buyers, that means working with a REALTOR®.

The process of buying a home or other property is complex and, regardless of age, location and income, nearly all buyers view agents as trusted advisers who play an integral role.

On this site you’ll find comprehensive real estate data analysis from the New York State Association of REALTORS®; the latest industry news for homebuyers; the top reasons you should use a REALTOR®; our MLS home-listing search tool; town-by-town descriptions of life in Ulster County; and the best ways to connect directly with the Ulster County Board of REALTORS®.

Remember: If you know the town in which you want to buy, it’s never been easier to find a real estate agent. Google the town name and “real estate agent,” and contact licensed REALTORS® with experience advising investors in the area.
