Hey AR!  one of my favorite towns in New Jersey and home to GoodBuy Homes NJ Realty new headquarters made it onto ABC's hit show "What Would You Do?"  It was an experiment to see what would people do if they saw a baby that was left in a hot car while the parent went into the store?  It was an interesting video to watch.  The video was filmed in South Orange village right in front of Stony's a famous eatery here in South Orange, NJ.    Not only does South Orange have awesome homes, great people, tasty restaurants and tons of outdoor fun, we are also now on T.V.

After thinking about it, I thought...how about a check- in with my AR family...that's a good subject right?    SO AR HOW IS REAL ESTATE IN YOUR AREA??? Are you seeing an improvement in the markets that you service? Is your area being represented properly? some say the market is the improving, others disagree all together, how do you feel??   Here in NJ we have a seasaw market  in some areas houses are selling and some with multiple offers, while other areas are dismal and sales have slowed to a crawl. Why is that? The reason being is mainly because of the way our foreclosure system is set up.  We are currently ...

As a Real Estate Agent, I live a fast paced life, always on the go...in and out of the car, the office and of course houses.  I cannot stress enough how important it is to eat right, get rest and exercise and since I am not a gym kind of guy, I find this method the best way for me to stay healthy and also safe...No matter what I have going on; every Wednesday and Saturday I always make time to enjoy one of my life's passions...Martial Arts Martial Arts is not just about fighting or beating people up, Trust me I don't want to be the karate kid, but its more of a consciousness and an understanding that you can only get when you actually get involved in it.   Being a residence of the Maplewood/South Orange connection I will FEATURE a different location, business or service in my towns so t...

If you are selling Real Estate in this market I am sure you have a short sale listing with an eager buyer ready to buy it or a your working with a qualified buyer that has an offer on one of these listings and their waiting in the balance for "the decision".  If you fall into one of these categories then you understand the title of my post "The Devil is a Liar and so is the BPO Agent!" I say that because BPO agents have been known to be "deal killers" and many agents are understandably nervous when its time for the BPO to be done.  I know the devil wears prada but he is also a liar...and sometimes so is the BPO Agent... Case in point: I have a short sale Listing that I have been working on a few months and when we finally received an offer you know we were overly excited.  After attorne...

 I received a call yesterday from a buyer who I sold a home to about 4 months ago and during our conversation he recalled a conversation we had back when he was house hunting that went something similar to this: "So Malik, do you think now is the right time to buy?  I replied with; "the right time to buy is when you are ready, willing and able.  The last few years and the market that is and will be 2010; although depressed and borderline destructive has created some great opportunities for those looking to purchase".  He agreed; but still was not too sure; so I said to him trust me "10 years from now you will have wished you bought in 2010" and here's why:  Interest rates are at historic lows (I actually seen a bank that offered 4.25% the other day) for a 30 year fixed. If you have a go...
