You Accurately Portrayed this Farm and Home for Sale on the Internet! This morning a potential buyer was stunned that 87 Sherman Ridge Road, Wantage NJ 07461 stood up to scrutiny. He remarked several times that most homes for sale are not accurately shown on the Internet. Yes, he was complimenting me on fairly portraying my listing of this 32 acre farm with a spectacular Colonial house.   Price dropped to just $625,000 on February 3, 2011!   I view this as my job yet clearly this gent found it unusual.  Not all homes are as beautiful as 87 Sherman Ridge Road in Wantage NJ, but I don't want to mislead ANY online lookers - whether I'm showing them the home or another agent takes them to see it.     Marketing homes for sale should not be deceptive - my reputation is at stake!    Am I caref...

This 2002 center-hall Colonial home for sale was built in 2002 and is in the final stages of renovations - notably the kitchen.  The owners had a long-term idea of opening a Bed and Breakfast on this 32 acre farm in Wantage NJ. 87 Sherman Ridge Road was built with B&B potential in mind but can serve as a spectacular private home too.   Just $639,499 as of January 26, 2011!   Each of the bedrooms in this Colonial home for sale has its own bathroom.

Many of you potential first-time homeowners racing to buy homes for sale in Sussex County NJ may need some better glasses. Yes, the $8000 tax credit might be an important factor. Please don't overlook, however, that value does not just equal the lowest list price. Particularly with homes for sale Sussex County NJ, you'll be wise to look carefully at the age of a roof, septic system, furnace, etc. If you only see the list price, your great deal might not be such a bargain when you add in expensive work in the not-too-distant future. I have two Sussex County homes for sale listed where major systems have been recently overhauled. This should offer peace of mind that you won't been spending a small fortune in the near future on, say, a septic system. Although one has sold, 41 Beemer Church...

In July 2009, GSMLS market data snapshot for Wantage homes for sale shows that 6 homes sold during the month while 13 went Under Contract. The least expensive Wantage home sale was a 2 bedroom ranch in Lake Neepaulin, which sold for $173,750.  One home under construction sold for $484,863 - well above the list price but the large difference can be attributed to upgrades selected.  The Median Sale price for homes in Wantage that closed in July was down from the previous month - $245,000.

In June 2009, GSMLS market data for Wantage shows that only 4 homes sold during the month, but as many more are Under Contract, we can expect a much different picture when the July market data is available. Better news for Wantage home sellers is that the Median Sale price rose from just $164,500 in May to $255,000 in June! As for buyers considering purchasing a home in Wantage, we still have plenty of choices with 162 MLS listings in Wantage alone. Add Branchville and other adjacent towns - home buyers have lots of option here in Sussex County!  All this Wantage NJ real estate data on homes for sale has been updated based on June 2009 information. Sometimes earlier months changed. Say a deal on a home for sale that was Under Contract in May fell apart; the UC number dropped and the Act...

Not only do buyer and sellers want to know what the real estate picture is in Wantage Township, homeowners who aren't moving also like to keep an eye on things. Throwing a lot of statistics at folks can bring on the "glazed eye" look in no time flat. What gives someone a faster picture? How 'bout a picture! As one can see, the inventory of homes for sale in Wantage Township remains high but the overall numbers are showing a downward trend!
