ACCORDING TO SELLERS,SILENCE ISN'T ALWAYS 'GOLDEN' When trying to sell a home, silence isn't always golden especially when you're expecting your real estate agent to call.  In fact, it's one of the leading complaints among sellers in the real estate market.  Often times you find an agent who is more than willing to take on your listing, but once the relationship is made, the seller enjoys getting a call at least once a week. "A seller should establish with the agent up front the expectation that regular communication will occur.  Even if it's just to check-in, the seller will be more satisfied being kept 'in the loop'," Keeping the communication lines open between the two parties assures the seller that the agent is keeping them apprised of any and all offers.  In addition, agents often...

It seems that everywhere you look there is another "active adult community".  It is not your imagination.  Almost 50% of all new construction in recent yers has been in age restricted housing, according to the New Jersey Builders Associate estimate.The reason for this is the large numbers of "baby boomers" in our general population.  There are more then 2 million people in New Jersey over age 55, according to the U.S. census.   Although these adult communities seem to be everywhere you look, the trend is continuing with the peak expected in 2011.  The housing slump has slowed down the growth of these communites, with the best deals to be found in those communities being built in 2008, as the funding for these communities is newly in place for developers and you can expect that the proj...

Okay...Here it is...both at once!!! 2 firsts for me!The 1st first is this blog! So often I've thought of some "what I believe to be" worthwhile interests to share but was afraid that I would sound foolish to those who read it. With much encouragement from one person in particular, my sister, Real Estate manager, mentor and  guardian angel,  Marie Episale...here it is...my 1st blog!What I'd like to share is a short tale about my 2nd first (I know, it's an oxymoron). My 24 year old nephew has recently moved in to live with me and has let me know on almost a daily basis how much he loves to hike. After several weeks I finally caved. It was late on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday...GO GIANTS!  We drove a very short distance to Pyramid Mountain Park in Kinnelon, which by the way, my house i...

Throughout the 1800's, the area roundabout was known politically as Pompton Township. Pompton Township included Bloomingdale, Ringwood, Wanaque, and Pompton Lakes. Pompton Lakes separated from the township in 1895. During the early 1900's, the people of the remaining three municipalities determined that it would be more convenient to separate into three communities rather than try to conduct their public affairs over such a widespread area. It was not a simple procedure because boundary lines had to be agreed upon and all indebtedness and assessments had to be apportioned. Also, school appropriations had to be redistributed, Fire Department and Police Department had to be established, and Borough officials elected. An election held in February 1918 by the Passaic County Board of Electio...
