Jefferson Township, NJ (Morris County) is comprised of two sections:  Oak Ridge and Lake Hopatcong.  The Township's real estate market enjoyed a healthy August, with a total of 40 homes for sale.  With 229 homes currently available for sale in Jefferson Township alone, buyers can enjoy a generous selection from which to choose from.  Criteria in choosing a home remains primarily price and condition.  Pricing is foremost.  Even if a home is priced as little as 3% over market value, it could languish.  If a marketed property does not present itself well via attractive MLS photos that portray a clean, well-maintained home, days on the market will accumulate, forcing a price reduction.My family and I make our home in Oak Ridge and love the area.  For a buyer consultation that you'll find bo...

HOW IMPORTANT IS THE LIST PRICE OF YOUR HOME ????   TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION I FIRST MUST GO INTO MANY MISLEADING THEORIES THAT SELLER'S HAVE THAT MAY SWAY THEM TO MIS-PRICE (OVER PRICE) THEIR PRODUCT. 1) LIST PRICE VS. SALES PRICE- MANY CONSUMERS SEE WHAT COMPARABLE PROPERTIES HAVE LISTED FOR IN THEIR COMMUNITIES BUT FAIL TO KNOW THE SALES PRICE. THE SALES PRICE SHOULD BE WHAT SELLER'S FOLLOW AND TRACK. 2) PRIDE-WE ALL, AS HOME OWNERS, HAVE A LOT OF PRIDE IN OUR HOMES. (WE SHOULD) MANY TIMES IT IS THIS PRIDE THAT BLINDS US TO BELIEVE THAT WE OWN A SUPERIOR PRODUCT WHEN MOST OF THE TIME IT IS VERY SIMILAR-TO THE COMPETITION. (LOOK AT YOUR HOME AS A PRODUCT, NOT YOUR POSSESSION.3) THE NEED OF THE SELLER- I CAN GIVE YOU MANY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES WITH THIS ONE. FOR EXAMPLE, A SELLER HOME I...
