Some early eighteenth century houses are still standing in Mountainside but others have given way to modern buildings, both residential and commercial. One of the earliest homes, built by pioneers James and John Badgley in 1738 near where Trailside Museum now stands, became a garage for the Union County Parks Commission. Arson destroyed it in 1984. The Deacon Andrew Hetfield House, built about 1760, was used by the Hetfield family or in-laws until 1936. From then ...

Real Estate Professionals judge the strength of a real estate market based upon the Months of Supply in the area. This number tells you how many months it would take for all the current homes for sale on the market to sell, based upon the rate of sales in the past. A Months of Supply of 5 months is considered average - buyers and sellers are about equal in the area and homes are being bought at about the same rate that they are being put on the market. A Months of Supply of less than 5 months is what real estate professionals often call a "seller's market." This means that there are more buyers than sellers in the area and homes are selling quicker than they are being put on the market. Typically, this increases prices. A Months of Supply of greater than 5 months is what real estate pro...

Mountainside, NJ, is a beautiful town in Western Union County, NJ, and is home to almost 6700 people. New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Mountainside as its 8th best place to live in NJ in 2010 and it's 16th best place to live in its 2008 rankings. In comparing the real estate market for the last six February's, we discovered that the slow market that Mountainside has experienced for the past two years appears to be over! Great news if you're planning to sell your home! For instance, there were more active listings in Mountainside this past February than there were for the two years prior: More good news can be found when we examine the average days on market - calculated from the time of listing to the time a contract was signed. Finally those years of waiting 5 or 6 months for a house...

    A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud poundingon the door. The man gets up and  goes to the door where a drunken stranger,standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push. "Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed. "Who was that?" asked his wife. "Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers. "Did you help him?"  she asks. "No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out  there!" "Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? .I think you should  help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!" God loves drunk people too. The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out intothe pound...

Buyers who purchase a property with someone else may wonder about their ability to claim the homebuyer tax credit. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently issued tax credit eligibility guidelines for co-borrowers purchasing a home.   One of the most commonly seen situations is when a parent co-signs their child's mortgage and both names appear on the note. If the parent owns a home, they are not eligible for any portion of the credit. However, if the home-buying child has not owned a home in the previous three years and meets the other requirements, he or she can qualify for the full $8,000 first-time buyer tax credit. In other cases, unmarried individuals purchase a home to live in together. If only one of the co-borrowers meets all of the requirements, the eligible buyer may claim...
