Back in November, we had the idea to join a BNI Neworking Group. For those of you who are unfamiliar with BNI, it was founded by Dr. Ivan Misner and is a formal business networking group that meets weekly to help build business. What makes BNI unique is that each chapter has only 1 seat for each professional specialty - 1 life insurance salesperson, 1 carpenter, 1 plumber, 1 divorce attorney, etc., and 1 residential Realtor.  Through weekly meetings, the members get to know each other and develop relationships so that each member is comfortable referring the other members business.  The good news is that there's lots of success in BNI - through conscious networking, your business can build. The bad news is that there's only 1 seat for a residential Realtor, and, since residential Realto...

One of the best things about summer in Union County is shopping at farmers markets, and one of our favorites has been serving the people of Union County since 1903. The Schieferstein Family Farm at 393 Madison Hill Road in Clark is a  great source of fresh local Jersey produce, flowers, and garden supplies not to mention honey, jam, bread, and cider. You can visit them at their farm or at several farmers markets all summer! To find a farmers' market by you, check out the NJ Department of Agriculture.

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting with Kim Cagle, lifelong Jersey Girl and self-proclaimed reformed lawyer, who along with her husband, owns the Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, located at 77 Central Avenue, Clark. Hand & Stone first opened its doors on November, 28, 2011, and is already a thriving business in the community. Hand & Stone is a full service spa offering massages, facials and waxes. Unlike some other spas, they customize all their experiences to each client. Their main goal is to help people. Many come in feeling stress or pain and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. They have 20 specialists on staff, featuring many different modalities and specialties. The moment you walk in the door the experience begins. The check in staff is friendly and helpful and they star...

In its quarterly report, Fannie Mae reported that 73% of surveyed people believe that this is a good time to buy.  48% of respondents reported that they believe that rental prices will go up, and on average they expect rental prices to go up by 4.1%. This is the highest level of consumer confidence in over a year, reports Keeping Current Matters.   It's becoming more and more obvious that buying a home is a better financial decision than renting. 84% of the general population believes that buying a home makes more sense than renting one.   Is buying a better emotional decision, also? We think so - owning your own home provides security and stability that renting can't provide. Home ownership allows you control over your living space that renting doesn't offer. If the time is right for y...

Clark, NJ, is a beautiful town easily accessibly by the New Jersey Parkway in southern Union County. The township is named for Abraham Clark who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Clark as its 33rd best place to live in its 2008 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey. The housing market in Clark reflects a picture not unlike that in the rest of the region. We analyzed data from Clark from January 2005 through January 2012 and discovered two trends. The first most obvious trend is that the number of active listings and the number of days a home remain on the market (DOM) correlate - as one increases, so does the other, and vice versa. This is logical because the more homes on the market, the longer each one takes to sell. The ...

  The real estate market in Clark in January 2012 was only slightly less active than January 2011 with 6 homes selling for 95% of list price in 2011 compared to 9 homes sold for 100% of list price last year.   Overall, the 2011 data in Clark reflects no significant change compared to 2010 except in the area of length of time it takes to sell as shown in the graph below.  Homes in Clark took longer to sell in 2011 except over the summer.   The market in Clark continues to be strong with the average home selling for about 95% of list price.     If you're interested in buying or selling in Clark, NJ, Team Zuhl offers 2 realtors for the price of one!

How’s the Market in Cranford?     Active Listings Average List Price Sold Listings Average Sale Price Average Days on Market SP/LP January 2012 74 387,244 8 413,306 68 95% December 2011 73 377,499 6 373,367 58 90% November 2011 85 395,950 12 414,158 60 96% October 2011 90 396,413 14 339,857 64 93% September 2011 101 407,302 12 433,300 61 95% August 2011 103 399,000 20 403,325 66 97%   It appears as though the inventory in Cranford dropped, predictably, over the winter and that homes are still taking about 2 months to find a buyer. An even more revealing statistic is the Sale Price to List Price ratio which has remained relatively steady throughout the last six months. Therefore, when you’re looking at homes in Cranford, expect to pay 95% of the list price. If you’re selling a home in Cr...

We ventured out a week or two ago to Bistro 1051 on Raritan Road in Clark. This BYO restaurant features a unique mix of Italian cuisine and sushi. Service was fantastic and food was great and portions were very large (doggie bags all around). Their Brick oven flat bread with vodka sauce, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella was delicious.  The Dynamite Shrimp was exactly as described - dynamite, and the Kobe burger was juicy and served with fantastic sweet potato fries. Next time, we're trying the Pear Endive salad and the sushi rolls. Have you tried it yet? Tell us what you thought!
