An Independent Press Survey showed that local communities are putting more priority towards environmental issues.  But some towns are doing more than others.  Tune in all week to see how your town compares.Today's community:  Millburn/Short Hills, NJA subcommittee of the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment has decided this is a good time to bring green concepts into building regulations and municipal land use ordinances with the proposed redevelopment project for Millburn's downtown area.  Ideas to extend this effort include designing a green streetscape, using recycled rainwater, installing high efficiency lights and traffic signals and solar operated pedestrian signs.Millburn also was one of the original members of the Mayor's Committee for a Green Future where local leaders...

       Millburn-Short HillsThe township was named "Millburn" in 1857, as a tribute to a local mill built on a stream, with "burn" being the Scottish name for "stream." Shortly after 1870, Stewart Hartshorn, inventor of the roller window shade, decided to make his home here and to enter the real estate business to establish an "ideal community." He purchased and resold much of the "short hills" area and adopted the Indians' name for his community. Today, Short Hills remains an area of Millburn Township. Millburn is located just west of Newark between the Pasaic River and Newark Bay along Highway 527 in the southwest corner of Essex County. The Township is easy to reach via the NJ Transit midtown direct line, the Garden State Parkway, NJ Turnpike, and it is also convenient to Routes 24 an...

My sincere thanks to Power Realtor, Maggee Miggins of Burgdorff-ERA, Short Hills, for the details that went into producing this report.Contract Sales are up in Millburn-Short Hills over the same time last year.  The recent doom and gloom headlines are not impacting the key "Midtown Direct" areas [Midtown Direct is a train line that goes straight into New York's Penn Station] that are an easy commute to Manhattan.  this fundamental advantage continues to benefit this town and to maintain solid prices for well-marketed (well-staged) homes.During the month of July 31 houses were sold, ranging in price from $535,000 - $4,825,000.  The average list price was $1,896,000 with an average closing price of $1,720,000.  The difference between list and selling prices are 9% which feels high to me. ...

Another Fun Staging Success Story!!Juliet Johnson Staging just finished staging a home in Short Hills, NJ. Short Hills is the perfect town for Wall Streeters, with Midtown Direct train service, top-rated schools, treed streets and a tasteful mix of old and new manor homes, a few small, most large, all luxuriously high end living at its best.  My company was called in for a consultation on a center hall colonial just 3 weeks ago. We had 1 week to get on the market; the family was being relocated to the UK and had to be in place for the beginning of school.Mercifully the house was in really good condition; there was just a lot of untidiness to deal with.  The challenge initially appeared insurmountable, but with many hands the work became light and fun.  The client and her 4 children work...

Sometimes a house has been renovated/built by someone determined to prove their vision is a viable, preferable one. It may not be everyone's dream to live in a Russian "villa" (think Rhode Island "cottage") on the Baltic sea, for example, but if you did, you would have marble floors throughout and very elaborate mouldings.   It is our job as stagers to make the house appeal to a wide base, however, and see that the builder's vision has a certain charm and efficiency no matter how mad it might initially appear.The Background:Some local Russian emigres decided to try their hand at the fix-and-flip game and made the house as nice as could be... in their eyes.  Their realtor is new to the business.  Anxious to take any listing and make it a success, she was told by everyone in her office: "...
