  Fanwood is located in southwestern Union County and is home to approximately 7300 people.               The housing inventory in Fanwood has dropped to only 35 active listings in September, 2012.            Summer sales are typically robust in Union County, and Fanwood was certainly no exception. As you might expect, the low inventory this September follows a very active summer in which 27 homes were sold through June, July, and August.  September's market continued to be active with 8 sold listings.     What does this do to sales prices? As you can see, sale prices are lower now than they were six months ago, but prices are relatively stable. The average sales price of homes in Fanwood in September, 2012, was just under $380,000. The absorption rate is the data upon which real estat...

The market report in Fanwood shows some improvements over last year. For starters, take a look at the active lisings in town: The data shows that the number of active listings is going down. Could this mean the end of the giant inventory and subsequent buyer's market? Another good indicator of the Fanwood real estate market is the number of days homes take to sell. This data is composed of homes that sold and indicates how many days from listing to contract. No obvious trend, but December of 2011 showed a very robust market with quick turnover time for sales compared to a pretty slow summer. The final piece of data we'd like to show you is a comparison of sale price versus list price. A high sale price compare to list price ratio means that homes are selling at or close to list price, a...

Efforts to train Arizonans for jobs in emerging renewable-energy industries will get a boost from a $4.8 million federal job-training grant announced Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Labor. The grant - part of $100 million in federal stimulus funding nationwide - was awarded to the Austin, Texas, Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee in part to provide immediate training for solar power plants under development in Texas.   The grant also will fund "capacity-building" efforts - consisting mainly of training for instructors - in Arizona, Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico and Texas. Gilbert Ferrales, training director for the Austin training committee, said application details for the "train-the-trainer" part of the grant work will be released later through local Workforce Inves...

Minority leader Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP members have argued that the Democrats' health care proposal, which was passed by the House of Representatives on November 7, would place a costly burden on taxpayers and cause the national debt to balloon to record levels.   The Democrats' position is, "health care reform will take pressure off of consumers and businesses by reigning in spiraling medical costs and making sure every American is covered by an affordable insurance plan," will bring little benefit to our economy. The GOP are supporters argued that high-income tax cuts would benefit everybody because they would unleash investment that would spark widespread economic prosperity. Over the upcoming decade (2010-2019), the costs of the health care proposals approved by th...

Buying Distressed Notes I overheard a conversation recently while circulating at a commercial real estate networking event in Los Angeles. The person speaking said they were buying distressed loans (promissory notes) at significant discounts from commercial banks. The loans were already in foreclosure, and the person speaking (buyer) wanted to buy the notes now so that they would end up with the actual real estate by completing the foreclosure. Buying Notes Through a 1031 Exchange She indicated that she would like to sell certain real estate that she already owns through a 1031 exchange, and then acquire the promissory notes from the commercial bank as her like-kind replacement property to complete her 1031 tax deferred exchange transaction. She indicated that she had asked a couple of ...

See, "Salary Survey for People with Jobs in Real Estate / Realtors / Property (United States)" http://www.payscale.com/research/US/People_with_Jobs_in_Real_Estate_%2F_Realtors_%2F_Property/Salary Are any Agents receiving Wages and Benefits?

The good news about this real estate segment: Corporate housing rentals are more than holding their own in tough economic times, and they often yield more revenue for investors than conventional rentals. NJ EstatesReal Estate Group Paul Stillwaggon October 2009 LINKING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGYTO OLD FASHIONED SERVICE Copyright © 2009 Realty TimesAll Rights Reserved. Here's an interesting profit niche for rental property owners that doesn't get a lot of media attention: Corporate housing. That means you target your furnished rental unit not at long-term tenants, but at people who've been transferred for short to medium-term assignments by their companies, or who have moved themselves to a new work location, and want to take a few months to get their bearings. Or maybe they just need a place...
