Just wanted to point out that there is a interesting little Squidoo lens out there Great Morristown Home. It has a great house on it which is in Morris Township.  The house in many ways is over improved, and even though it is a 4 bedroom Colonial it is priced more like a 3 bedroom.  Do I need to say Value, This house reeks of value.  There is not one thing that needs to be done to move into this house.  The current owners have been meticulous about maintenance and upgrades.  There is a large public park just across the street from the house, as well as the community public poll just a block away.  This home is a must see. Call James Boyer for your private showing or for more information, 973-647-0253James Boyer, Realtor is a Real Estate consultant specializing in Maplewood, Madison, Cha...

MORRISTOWN -- With a small processing fee, residents now can pay property and sewer taxes from their computers by logging on to the town Web site, said Mayor Donald Cresitello. Homeowners can pay their tax and sewer bills online, located at http://www.townofmorristown.org/, using their checking account, savings account or credit card. Town officials said the online payments will be secure. Residents will need all pertinent information on hand during the transaction. The Web site has tabs marked "sewer payments" and "tax payments" for which residents can click on to make the corresponding payments. At this time only payments via a credit card, checking and saving accounts are accepted. Payments made before midnight on weekdays get that day's date as the current date. If the payment is ma...

Hi Everyone, Realtor.com has launched their blog platform now.  They just sent me my user ID and Password yesterday so I thought I would give it a try.  It is very different than Active Rain, and it is my feeling that they need to give the whole thing more link juice from the Realtor.com domain to make it better.  The look and feel are very good. Check it out:  http://jboyer.featuredblog.com/  It really is nice looking anyway!! I posted my first blog there just to see how things went.  I will report back sometime in the near future to let you know if I was able to find the blog in the search engine results. James Boyer, Realtor is a real estate consultant specializing in Morristown Real Estate, Parsippany Real Estate and Chatham NJ Real Estate.

The new edition of The Rebound In New Jersey Real Estate , is out.  It is a continuing series on the Real Estate Market conditions in 10 popular Towns along the Midtown Direct Train line.  Conditions for Morristown seem to be steady to slightly improving though the change over time has been ever so slight as time passes things could so easily go the other direction.If you are thinking about trading up (buying a home which is bigger and in a higher price range that your current home), now is the time.  Mortgage interest rates are still very low compared to historic averages, and the lower price category homes are still selling well.  At this point in time you can get your lower priced home sold for a nice profit and purchase your next home for a very healthy discount over what you likely...

Morristown Real Estate report for June 17 2007As of today there were 58 homes under contract in Morristown and 150 homes on the market.  Though the market is still soft, homes are selling, and prices are not falling though the floor.To sell a home in this kind of market the best approch seems to be as follows:Look at the most comparable sold listings within several miles of the home that is about to be put on the market.  Adjust for things such as busy or not busy roads, desirability of the neighborhood if that is a factor, how up to date the homes are, and the other normal things that we as Realtors do to estimate what a ready and willing buyer would likly pay for a home.  Once that has been done, the next step seems a little counter intuitive to many but works quite well.  Set the pri...

NJ.com calls me today wanting to sell me online advertising.  OK, I will take a look at it.  See if you have changed your ways at all.  What do I find.  Basically a rip off of Realtor.com, no direct links to the agents websites, and the links which you have to click on a link to get to the link, has a no follow tag on it so that no search engine credit passes,  For this they wan $299.00 per house advertised. My advice to everyone, stay away from the News Papers.  Until they get a clue all they are doing is charging you 5x what their service is worth. About the Author James Boyer, Realtor is a real estate consultant specializing in Real Estate Morristown Morristown Homes.

Morristown Real Estate MarketThe Morristown Real Estate Market is holding its own.  There are currently 151 homes on the market as of the end of May there were 151 homes on the market & 50 homes under contract.  These numbers highlight the importance of making sure that you hire the best Realtor to market your home, and to price your home properly from the start.  The old method of pricing a home high and hoping to get it and reducing if you don't does not work well anymore.  Today pricing a home aggressively as compared to its competition is the best way to make sure to get the best price for your home, and hopefully a bidding war on it as well. Demand seems to be building a little with more and more people wanting to buy a new home but being unsure that the time is right due to all th...

I have been in the real estate industry for 4 years now. During that time I have learned a lot.  Some of what I have learned had come from making my own errors, and others came from doing the research.  The point of this story is that there is now enough information becoming available out there to keep Realtors from making the big financial mistakes that many have made in the past.   The Lead Seller:HomegainHomes.comHousevalues.com (homepages.com, justlisted.com)and many others who call and want to sell you zip codes for $40 to $400 a month They are the same in many respects.  The represent themselves as having 10's or even hundreds of leads in your area who need to be contacted right away, but where do these leads come from? In most cases these companies are doing what you should be do...
