First-time buyer in Queens? Get answers at Brownstoner’s Home Events Series

Did you know that when you’re buying a home, there’s a big difference between buying a new-construction condominium and a home from an individual owner?

“If you don’t close your deal on a new-construction condo within the time frame set by the sponsor, you might lose your deposit,” said Ryan Walsh, owner of Ryan Walsh Law. “That’s something you wouldn’t encounter if you’re buying a home from an individual.”

Walsh will be speaking at “What First-Time Home Buyers Need to Know,” with a focus on Long Island City and Astoria.

Penthouse E is designed with clean lines and a simple plan to make maximum use of the room available. 

Find out other things you need to know — whether you’re buying new construction or a resale, an apartment or a house — from a panel of experts at the next evening in the Brownstoner Home Events series. The event takes place on Tuesday, March 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Plaxall Gallery at 5-25 46th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens.

Gotham Insurance will be represented and will explain the intricacies of homeowner insurance — what is covered and what is not.
