Morristown NJ Real Estate  There are alot of homes on foreclosure now and buyers are hoping to get a deal.  Maybe you can...just be careful.  Be sure to do your homework on how much money you may need to invest in a neglected property to bring it up to speed.  Have a professional take a look at the property and give  you an estimate...tell them to pad it...worst case scenario.  Then I would say, search your heart and soul to see if you have it in you for the long haul on this propery for the renovations involved.  Its not for everyone, but it can be profitable...just evaluate the situation completely so know what you are getting into!!Call Susan Zanzonico on 973-214-5872 for all your Morristown NJ Real Estate needs, I also specialize in Harding NJ Real Estate and towns along the Mid-Tow...

The Morristown New Jerseys real estate market seems to have bottomed out now after dropping in the spring and early summer of 2007.  The only real price declines we are continuing to see are from home sellers who over priced their homes when they listed them. What does this all mean for Morristown New Jersey home sellers?  If you want to sell, this is a great time to get started while the home inventory levels in and around Summit are down.  The real jump in new home listings will likely come in March and early April of 2008.  If you can get your home listed on the market long before all the competition hits in March and at a proper price, you likely will get your house sold for a fair price in a reasonable time frame. What does this mean for Morristown New Jersey area home buyers?  The...

The Morristown NJ Planning Board will meet tonight to discuss the possibility of building 66 affordable condos on Court Street.  This is a great location....literally one block from the center of town.  Pulte Homes will be presenting this proposal for the condos to be priced between $400-$700K, 1200 to 2800 square feet. These are approximate estimates and of course, Morristown has to concur.If this is approved, they could be breaking ground in March or April.  For additional information on Morristown or surrounding areas visit my website.

There were 16 homes that sold and settled in Morristown this past month.  Several of them were new construction condos from DeHart Place.  The Morristown real estate market seems to keep moving along as some home buyers brave all the bad news realizing that when the news is the worst, is the best time to get a great deal. AddressLpriceStyleBedsBathsGARBSMTSprice DOM50 Elm Street Unit 3A185000OneFloor010N177000 7320 South Street249900FirstFlr110N243000 65320 South Street 16C333700TwnIntUn22.10Y315000 6341 Mt.

It always amazes me how some sellers shop around strictly by commission.  They don't even seem to care what services are offered thereby justifying a higher or lower fee.  I get emails all the time just wanting to know the fee.  I try to avoid this discussion before discussing what I will do to position and sell your home for the most money as quickly as possible.  However, sometimes its just hard to escape.  There are so many factors such as location and pricing that will come into play.  If a buyer wants to put a high price tag on the home, it will likely sit for a while or forever and not sell.  In this case, the fee wouldn't matter as it will never be paid out.  If the client is willing to price at or below market value, this is another story.  I have also started breaking down the ...

Wondering if it is a good time to be thinking of buying a home in Morristown New Jersey?  Is the news media right this time when they say this is a bad time to by, or as usual are they wrong again?Being as I am a Professional Realtor, you may think that I am a bit biased, but that is OK, I can let the facts speak for them selves.  Right now is a great time to be a home buyer.  Very few people have the guts to be out their looking at homes and to make a offer on the right one.  That is what makes it such a great time to be a home buyer.  Their are home sellers out their who have to sell.  They will sell for what is reasonable to the home buyers and they are OK with that.If you otherwise might wait until summer of 2008, think about it again, the fall of 2007 likely can bring you a better ...

Home buyers, what is one of the first things most of you will think to do in your new home?  That's right, Paint, but is a paint brush the same as any other paint brush?  What should you look for in a paint brush?The ultimate test of a paint brush's quality is how well it picks up and releases paint.  Unfortunately, you cannot check that in the hardware-store aisle, but here are some other things you can look for.  Tapered Tips Look at the paint brush in profile.  The tips should come to a tapered point-this will give you more control because they form into a narrow line as you press the brush against your trim.Full Body A wood or cardboard spacer creates a space that, on good paint brushes, holds a reservoir of paint.  On cheap paint brushes, a thick spacer is used to offset fewer bris...

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) conducted a poll of some 700 homeowners.  The results showed that 51% thought there home would be covered in the event of the main water supply line to their home breaking and flooding their home.  Nope sorry that is not covered by your typical homeowners insurance.  35% of the homeowners surveyed thought that normal homeowners insurance would cover in the event of a earthquake.Though earthquakes are usually thought of as being especially destructive, fortunately here in New Jersey we don't have the earthquakes.  Floods on the other hand are especially bad.  According to (NAIC) 90% of natural disasters are accompanied by some form of flooding, and unless you have purchased a flood insurance policy you likely are out of luck.Your...
