I’have planned to start a new business in two months, and almost every thing for my new venture is ready now. I still have many doubts regarding the business registration and corporation of business. Is it necessary to register a business before it gets started? What is the need for incorporating a business? Please share your valuable thoughts.
I’ve recently started the home buying journey, and while I’m very early in the exploration, my ideal scenario would be to purchase and renovate/restore a home in Newburg. I know this is a VERY open ended and broad topic, but looking to this community for any and all advice so I can learn from those who have already navigated this path in Newburgh.
I also need to start gathering a list of referrals for various services including (but not limited to):
– Real Estate Agent familiar with Newburgh
– Contractor for major renovations (plumbers, electricians also welcome)
– Local mortgage lenders (especially with experience with renovation mortgages)
– Lawyers specializing in Real Estate
Thanks in advance!
I am being convinced that I need to replace our entire 2nd floor (1,200sf) of wall to wall carpet in preparation to sell the house. The carpet in the main traffic areas in pretty worn, plus the dog has done plenty of damage in certain areas, so I don’t necessarily disagree it should be replaced. I don’t want to put in anything expensive since a buyer might say they don’t like it and it’ll be a waste of $ and carpet.
My question is, if you take out the “quality” component, is there a big difference between the cheap and expensive carpeting? In other words, I just want this carpet to look good for 90 days. (I think we should just tell buyers that we’ll give them a discount off of the price for new carpet, but other ‘advisors’ are telling me that I won’t get the most money for the house if the old carpet is still in it). Can I just go to Home Depot and get the cheap stuff and have it look good while the house is on the market? Or go to quality rug store like https://www.cyrusrugs.com/location/minnesota/minneapolis-rugs or rugs.com?
Thanks in advance.
I went to college in Newburgh from 1988-92, and took a drive through the city this weekend.
Thinking about coming back to the Hudson Valley, and am considering renting in Newburgh.
I was happy to feel all the new energy and see so much that has changed in the city and for the good. Was wondering if people could recommend real estate agencies that deal in rentals, or particular neighborhoods that might be good if you are just settling back in. I live in Boston now, and had mobile work that took me all over the city, so I’m open to neighborhoods. Just curious about the layout of the city (I don’t remember from way back then) and what’s going on in each neighborhood. I have a car so I’d need street parking or to find a lot that rents out off street.
Thanks for your help. I’m interested in being in Newburgh for what it is. It actually reminded me of Dorchester in Boston which is eclectic and has a variety of neighborhoods.
Is literally falling into disrepair
I’m tired of people using these homes as crack dens and then the town just slapping yellow tape up and letting them fall apart
But I’m very sorry to also say that I also hate more so these city morons coming here and hiking our taxes up to the point of eviction…
You care less about this part of NY and more about your wallets… you fix up the town with a halo and finish it up by growing horns and kicking “lower income” citizens out… I wish I could afford a Victorian home on grand street or anywhere in newburgh because I actually care for this town… but I cant because once miss mink and mr miser move in from the city my taxes move up with them…
And I’m sick of it
Fix this town up but stay in nyc because I’d like to continue living where I am and not give up my home to the cityots… 😡
What is better Concrete Block or Stone Veneer?
In your experience, what is the best material to use?
I am looking for someone to restore some (exterior) posts on a Victorian. I found a business about 45-60 minutes from Newburgh that does custom work on a lathe. But I need someone who can actually do the work (carpenter). Be glad to have them supervise and handle the whole job.
Which is More Energy Efficient? Gas vs. Electric Water Heaters

Can anyone recommend Pet sitters that will work in Newburgh?
Hello, I am working on a house that is from the mid 1800’s looking around for bricks of the same era to do some patching. if any one out there is looking to get rid of some….
