WE KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO SELL A HOME IN THIS MARKET!

Short Sales and why they SUCK! - 09/16/10 09:52 AM
First off you can see by the tone of this post that I am a little frustrated while writing this post and that is why I am writing it, Do you want to know the one reason why Short Sales Suck I will tell you, BECAUSE NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING!!! that is right no one, the bank, the realtors, the mortgage people and so on. The HAFA program has become a joke, banks that do not want to participate just opt out like Bank of America for instance, they hold most of the dam short sales and they don't (3 comments)
Why The Housing Market Will Not Improve - 09/12/10 05:50 PM
I hear it every day, "they are asking too much for the home in this market" or "my home is worth allot more that what you are telling me" NO it is not maybe the memories are worth allot more but unfortunately your home is not! The reason why our housing market will not recover for a long time is that Buyers and Sellers are out of sync with the market place. Buyers want the homes for nothing and sellers think their homes are worth allot more, its very simple when I go on a listing appointment with a home owner (6 comments)
Testimonials about a Real Estate Agent in Nutley New Jersey - 09/10/10 09:37 AM
Dear Matt, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us find our dream home. Francisco and I couldn't be happier. We really appreciate how you were always available to take us from home to home at hours that were convenient to both of us, and on all days of the week, so my husband and I could make the decision together. This was the biggest purchase of our lives so far, and we have you to thank for it. The final month toward the closing was a bunch of hurdles that we weren't used to, being first-time (0 comments)
Future of the Housing Market - 09/09/10 12:23 PM
Home prices increased from April to May of this year by 1.3 percent, according to the Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index. The credit for this largely goes to the government's home buyer tax credit, which expired at the end of April.The general thought out there seems to be that the housing market has been bolstered by the tax credit--which was the point--and now will come tumbling down again. Maybe not, says University of Chicago economist Casey Mulligan. Even the home price index report points out that May is historically a strong month for home sales.The Home Buyer Tax Credit (0 comments)
New Program For Buyers With No Money Down - 09/09/10 08:35 AM
When the housing bubble burst, one of the culprits, economists agreed, was exotic mortgages, including those that required little or no money down. Porfiria Gonzalez and her son, Eric, 10, outside their new home in Milwaukee. They were able to move out of a rental house in a neighborhood with a high crime rate. But on a recent evening, Matthew and Hannah Middlebrooke stood in their new $115,000 three-bedroom ranch house here, which Mr. Middlebrooke bought in June with just $1,000 down. Because he also received a grant to cover closing costs and insurance, the check he wrote at the closing (0 comments)
In the long term, New Jersey homes appreciate better than the nation as a whole. - 09/07/10 08:42 AM
The seven year appreciation rate (2002-2009) for New Jersey homeowners is 37.1 percent, more than five times the national rate of 7.1 percent. Even with home prices reaching low points across the country, New Jersey's unique advantages still make it a smart place to invest in real estate. Garden State residents live in the home they buy for an average of seven years. Even during the current difficult economic climate, real estate in New Jersey can be a smart long term investment.
