Fast ways to remodel your kitchen. Fast Ways to Remodel Your Kitchen, and increase the value of your home.  While there are many different variables that contribute to selling a home, during the course of my real estate career, I have witnessed one constant: the kitchen. Today, the kitchen has become more of a multi-functional space than ever before, where cooking happens alongside bill paying and homework, not to mention the kitchen's role as social hub for family and friends. That's why it's more important than ever to buyers and sellers alike that this key room be fresh and inviting.While home improvement experts report that kitchen remodels provide anywhere from an 80-100% return on investment, based on my years of experience working with homeowners, I have found that just by updat...

As everyone in Manalapan Township knows, home prices have declined significantly since the 2007 property revaluation, which was intended to bring all Township property assessments in line with market value. With homes selling for less than they did at the market peak, many Manalapan homeowners feel their homes are over-assessed and their taxes are too high. In the last couple of years, many residents have appealed their taxes in order to have their assessments reduced. It has cost Manalapan Township a great deal of money to defend all these tax appeals. So, the Township has decided to reassess all properties in town to the 2009 market value. When the Township receives state approval, Professional Property Appraisers Inc. will conduct the reassessment. They will not be visiting residents...

      Manalapan NJ Homes will be Reassessed, Township Losing Tax Appeals                        In the face of a real estate market that has seen property values drop significantly over the past several years, Manalapan officials have decided to have all properties in town reassessed. A reassessment is different from a revaluation, which the township conducted several years ago, in that a representative from an appraisal company will not be inspecting the inside of homes, according to township officials. Manalapan will be using the services of Professional Property Appraisers Inc., of Delran, to conduct the reassessment. The firm will provide a reassessment of all vacant land, residential properties, regular farmland, qualified farmland, commercial and industrial properties, and exempt ...

I love to have flowers in my Manalapan backyard. My yard backs up to beautifully manicured woods and I love to plant flowers along the border. The pop of color adds so much to greenery. I also have many pots scattered all around especially in the front yard.  Since I am a Manalapan Realtor, I recognize the value of curb appeal.  A buyer needs to feel that your home is well maintained and manicured landscaping is key. Many buyers just drive by and won't even go inside if they don't like the way the outside of the house looks. I digress...I was writing about flowers! When I first moved to this home my husband painstakingly dug out beds for me all along the back of the property. Since it is partially shaded from the woods and trees, I plant impatiens. Every spring I buy 7 flats of impatien...
