In TODAY's news --- I have seen this myself in recent activity in the market. Since January, my listings have seen increased showings and activity. I have had more inquiries and my buyers --- who were dormant throughout the holidays --- have wanted to go out and see homes again. A couple of them have wanted to set days ( 2 times a week ) to agressively ramp up their home search.  Once we get throught the refinancing surge --- the spring real estate market will kick in! Is there anyone else seeing this uptick in interest recently? -------------------------------------------------------------  Mortgage Applications Rise as Refinancing Jumps U.S. mortgage applications jumped in the first full week of 2009 as record low interest rates spurred the greatest demand for home refinancing loans i...

  Oakland is HOT this summer! I hope it continues.  Although the dog days of summer are upon us...it seems that real estate has picked up in the last 2-3 months --- as far as actual under contract and closed sales. PRICING seems to be a key factor in this town where opportunities abound. Listed below is the data gleened from the NJMLS for the last two months. ( May 21 - July 21, 2008). The number of homes that have gone under contract or that have sold has gone up compared with two months prior. Of interest to note --- there is only 3.72 % difference between actual asking price and the closed sale price of homes.

   Just doing my weekly stats and thought I would share the sales for the past 6 months in Oakland, New Jersey. As you can see 43 have SOLD and 14 are under contract in this great Bergen County town. I think Oakland is one of the last areas of opportunity here and there are plenty of nice, affordable homes located in a town with terrific schools, recreation department and it is close to all. Check out the stats as gleened from the NJMLS.

A view inside my listing in Oakland, NJ. I have active listings in Oakland and the surrounding Bergen County area so I like to keep my sellers and buyers abreast of what the real picture looks like according to the njmls as far as sales go. I ran the numbers & included the last 6 months for the homes under contract or pending sale. From the chart below, you can see when homes are priced right.... they sell...some at the higher end of the price range...going into contract pretty quickly ( contrary to the media's point of view ). Location and pricing are key to fast sales in this ( or any other market ) *** Data taken on 04/29/2008 from the NJMLS of single family homes either under contract ( 6 months ) or sold (6months). ***Status#AverageMinimumMaximumAvg DOMActive :87$667,079$399,900$1,...

As realtors we are always looking to get our name out there.  More contacts means more people know who we are which leads to more leads and more business....Not all that bad if you ask me!  Next month, the Oakland, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce is having an business card exchange.  This is a great way to meet new people and increase your contact list as well as increase your business.

Who doesn't love a Gala Dinner???  Complete with dancing, drinks and dinner....this is a great way to donate to the Oakland Education Foundation.  Plus, a 50/50 raffle for those wishing to try their luck!  I truly believe that our children are our future and this is one way to help out the foundations that go to benefit their education.  I hope a lot of residents come out for this event in support of education.

 You gotta LOVE data!It is all right here in the numbers and as I have said before....numbers don't lie. Now, in Oakland, you can see that in the last 6 months between 113 and 117 homes have SOLD. The average days on market is between 118 and 139 ( depending on the price range ) and this does tell us that there is quite a bit of activity in the market. Yes, the days on market my be longer than the haydays of 5 years ago but.... this is not really very long. The days on market number seems to be back to a more realistic sales market based on good pricing, average title search and mortgage processing times, etc. Now in Oakland,  the average sales price is lower than say Mahwah, Saddle River or Franklin Lakes BUT this does represent great value, great location and terrific schools.
