We have been seeing many improvements with the market lately.  There are many listings that are coming on the market and others that are getting offers.  The houses that are going under contract are the ones that are priced right in the type of market that we are in.  The key is to price your property according to the market.  Some houses have dropped a little in price to accomodate for the market.  If you have any questions or comments call The Juba Team direct at 973-390-4664.  We offer a free Market Analysis on your property.Nicolaus T.

There are approximately 230 homes for sale throughout Jefferson Township.  Starter homes are available from $199K and up.  If you're handy, you can purchase a starter for below that and wind up with a lovely little home to call your own.  Many fantastic neighborhoods in Jefferson Township, such as White Rock, Milton, Water's Edge, and wonderful lake communities if you're a real "water lover."  I happen to live in the Milton section of Oak Ridge.  To clear any confusion, Jefferson Township is divided into two regions:  Oak Ridge and Lake Hopatcong.  Oak Ridge is the northern section; Lake Hopatcong, the southern.  They're bisected by the Mahlon Dickinson Reservation.  All in all, a GORGEOUS PLACE TO LIVE...For more information on the Township, go to www.AntoinettesHomes.com.

05/03/2007 THE JUBA TEAM HAS SEEN A BOTTOM UP IMPROVEMENT IN THE MARKET. THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE JUST LIKE "THE REAL ESTATE MARKET" USUALLY FALLS FROM THE TOP DOWN, (HIGHER PRICE HOMES SUFFER FIRST THEN IT TRICKES DOWN TO THE LOWER PRICE HOMES) THE MARKET WILL REPAIR ITSELF FROM THE BOTTOM UP.  WE, THE JUBA TEAM, HAVE SEEN A SURGE IN LOWER PRICE HOMES IN THE OAK RIDGE / JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP MARKET START TO GO UNDER CONTRACT. WE HOPE THIS TREND CONTINUES BUT EVEN VERY EXPERIENCED REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS CAN NOT PREDICT MARKET TRENDS. IF THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES THE CUSTOMERS THAT ARE BUYING UP IN PRICE WILL NOW BE ABLE TO MAKE THE MOVE AND PURCHASE HIGHER PRICE HOMES. WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE COMMUNITY INFORMED FROM A FRONT LINE APPROACH ON CURRENT MARKET TRENDS.  REGARDS, NICK JUBA ...

The Jefferson Township Recreation Department will be running its fourth summer day camp program beginning on June 25 for 9 weeks, ending on Aug. 24 at Camp Jefferson in Lake Hopatcong.  As inquiries come in, it is anticipated that there will be family situations where parents will be asking for financial assistance in order to send their children to camp this summer.Thanks to the generosity of several nonprofit township organizations, as well as some benevolent individuals, the rec department was able to financially assist five families last year, allowing seven children to attend day camp in 2006 for multiple weeks.At this time, the rec department would like to explore with interested individuals and the township's non-profit organizations the possibility for providing a scholarship or...

School Board Election on Tuesday, April 17th, 2-9PM, will give Jefferson Township residents the opportunity to voice their concern over possible school budget cuts.   The 2007-8 School Board budget is a 4% increase over last years' budget, .01% less than the current rate of inflation.   This will only cost residents $181 a year on a home valued at $368,700 (the average home price in Jefferson Township).  For a home valued at $500,000, it will cost approximately $240 for the year.   When you compare the amount to what preschools cost for one month (upwards of $200/month), or the cost of one child to play a sport, the cost of bottled water over the year, or one good shopping trip to BJ's, it doesn't seem like that much money to ensure your child will still be receiving the same or improve...

Here's some photos I took while driving around my township of Oak Ridge today.  As cold as it was, it was a great day for taking in the natural beauty of the area, and my sons (Chris, 11 and Sean, ALMOST 13) had a lot of fun exploring the fields and streams.    Check out the gorgeous scenery of Bowling Green Golf Course (above right).  A townhome community by the name of The Fairways is located just beyond.  Talk about a dream retirement location!

Oak Ridge, NJ is full of breathtakingly beautiful neighborhoods, but Preston Lakes, located just off of Russia Road is a prestigious favorite.  With a private beach open to only residents and guests, the small man-made lake boasts a pristine setting, including a trail surrounding the lake which is perfect for a morning jog or walk.As can be expected, homes in this exclusive development rarely become available, and the community is exceptionally close knit.  Recent sales in the summer of 2006 were in the $600K range, with days on the market well under 30. If you're an avid golfer, you'll enjoy the challenging course offered by the Bowling Green Golf Course, located vitually MINUTES away, just down the road.For more information, or to be kept apprised of activity in this neighborhood or m...

My husband really looks forward to April.  Right after the stress of shopping for my birthday gift, he can look forward to the Nirvana of trout fishing opening day!  Those guys consider this to be a holiday and really flock to Jefferson Township, where some of the best trout fishing can be done.  Topping the list of many trout anglers are several locations along Berkshire Valley Road.  And forget about being crowded in, shoulder to shoulder!  Jim had this place all to himself on opening day, with not another human in sight!  This particular stream runs off from Longwood Lake and is actually part of the Rockaway River.Walking through these woods you can achieve a complete state of ZEN.  Such a serene setting, it's easy to forget that a county road is just beyond.These streams are regular...
