Rhinebeck Bank | Buying a Home in the Fall
Just as purchasing a home is an extensive process, selling one can be as well. Most sellers do not want to enter the holiday season with interruptions and the selling process on their mind. It is not uncommon for homeowners that have not sold by the fall to wait until the following spring. With this being said, sellers are worn out and may be more willing to negotiate and expedite the closing and move-in process. Talk to Rhinebeck Bank If You're Buying a Home!

"That wasn't there before..." muttered someone while walking past this flaming red piano on their way to get a grocery cart at Key Food. That's right. It's a temporary performance installation known as Keys to Beacon, a project of BeaconArts, where YOU get to make the magic at the keyboard. Anyone can sit down - or stand up - and play. A new Beacon blogger, Timothy Delaney, wrote about it here. Read the Article >
