A virtual Parade of Homes premieres Oct. 16 | Home/Real Estate

On Friday, Oct. 16, the 2020 Haciendas: A Virtual Parade of Homes goes live. It’s about two months later than the typical Parade events of past years, during which a few thousand people walked through a selection of the best new houses in Santa Fe. This year, because of coronavirus restrictions, the sponsoring Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association has innovated a digital experience that includes virtual walkthroughs and interviews with the builders.

The 2020 Parade features 15 houses, valued at between $315,000 to $3.5 million, constructed by 13 homebuilders.

Also unlike the traditional tour held over two weekends in August, this one can be revisited into the future. “The virtual tour will go live on Oct. 16 and remain on the website indefinitely,” said Miles D. Conway, SFAHBA executive officer. “Folks can go back again and again to view all the home videos, photography, and descriptions.”

Commercial tenants are getting a small reprieve from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

New York’s moratorium on commercial foreclosures and evictions will be in place until at least Oct. 20, Cuomo announced on Friday. The moratorium was set to expire Sept. 30, but the governor signed a new executive order extending the ban for another month.

But the state allowed commercial eviction warrants to be issued beginning Sept. 4 for cases that commenced before March 17, and some of those cases may now proceed.

Under Cuomo’s original order from March, initiating a proceeding or carrying out a commercial eviction for nonpayment of rent, or foreclosing on a commercial mortgage due to nonpayment is off limits.

The initial moratorium on evictions also included residential evictions and foreclosures, but those provisions have not been renewed. The initial blanket protections have been replaced by state legislation, according to Cuomo’s executive

A six-month pause on foreclosure actions will end Oct. 5 in Stark

The expressions on the faces of four people taking part in an online foreclosure class were tense and serious.

Nobody in the group of Stark and Summit county residents had planned on being in Thursday’s Zoom-based class but circumstances dictated otherwise.

“I just want to stay in my home,” one of the participants said, the man repeating the mantra throughout the session in which Community Legal Aid staff guided homeowners through the stages of foreclosure while offering tips on how to navigate the process and avoid pitfalls.

Homeowners were warned of scam artists who take advantage of people during vulnerable financial times.

The group already had existing foreclosure cases, some resulting from unpaid property taxes. One of the four cases predates the pandemic.

But a potential “landslide” of new foreclosure filings is anticipated in Stark County Common Pleas Court after proceedings resume in existing cases

Cuomo extends moratorium on commercial evictions, foreclosures to Oct. 20

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday announced an executive order extending the state’s moratorium on COVID-related commercial evictions and foreclosures an additional month, until October 20.

This measure extends protections already in place for commercial tenants and mortgagors in recognition of the financial toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on business owners, including retail establishments and restaurants. The extension of this protection gives commercial tenants and mortgagors additional time to get back on their feet and catch up on rent or their mortgage, or to renegotiate their lease terms to avoid foreclosure moving forward.

“The pandemic remains far from over, and we need to continue protecting the business owners supporting their families amid restrictions necessary to protect the public health,” Cuomo said. “That’s why it’s the right decision to extend the eviction ban for commercial tenants another 30 days.”
