Sparta, NJ Real Estate News

My office had a guest speaker on March 10, 2009. Albert Bolle, an excellent local appraiser, reviewed some hard data on local Sussex County, NJ, homes sales within a one-year period. I took notes on Al's lecture and did an Excel spreadsheet. Home values in Sparta fared MUCH better than any of the other Sussex County towns cited. Mortgage rates remain low, so buyer's dollars stretch further. So it IS really a good time to sell that home in Sparta.

If you haven't wet a line in a while... right now may be the time to get at it! Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch and Bluegill are all waiting for an offering in local lakes and ponds. Try worms, minnows, spinners, crickets, plugs and flies... all should work in short order as the bass and bluegills are in Prespawn and looking for protein for the long ordeal of raising a family and guarding the nest. PUT ALL BASS BACK QUICKLY INTO THE WATER AS THEY ARE NOT IN SEASON!!! My Wife, Mary, with 3 bass all caught within 1/2 hour on a local lake!
