Real estate law in the Dutchess County area
Category : Real Estate
My name is Mark Serino and I have been practicing real estate law in the Dutchess County area for decades, representing buyers, sellers, lenders, and contractors. I started helping real estate clients with my dad, Jerry Serino and continue to do so with my law firm, Serino MacKay & Berube, PLLC. Through my interactions with thousands of clients, I have learned
that a lack of information and knowledge can be frightening when revealing your “financial soul” to obtain a mortgage, especially when you are making what potentially will be the largest purchase of your lifetime.
If you are looking to buy a home, it is important to get a good realtor and a great attorney to assist you in this potentially intimidating process. Below is a quick check list of some major concerns you should pay attention to during your entire real estate purchasing process. Feel free to cut this out and use as your personal check list when buying a home. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me @ 845-462-0001.
Best of luck and happy house hunting.
