nutley: Autumn Leaves Signal Home Improvement Season - 11/05/12 10:18 AM
Ah, November! Down every street we see the familiar sight of homes in Nutley, yards displaying evidence of the fall leaf drop and -- yikes! -- Winter is coming! Beyond the unavoidable home maintenance issues: leaks in roof, cracks in windows, heating system checks, fall is also the best time to consider other, less obvious improvement projects. Whenever the weather (and busy schedules) allow, whether or not yours is one of the homes in Nutley that will soon have a 'For Sale' in its front yard, a few less attention-demanding home improvement ideas that could merit your attention: Fireplace Inspection!

nutley: When It's Open House Time, Don't Overdo! - 10/31/12 09:59 AM
According to the best estimate, something like 45% of home buyers use an open house viewing before making their purchase decision. I think that sounds about right - it might even be higher here in Nutley. With such a high proportion of serious prospects choosing to drop by an open house, it's important that we - client and agent -- get it right. Under-preparing is seldom an issue: we all want to put our best foot forward when we invite the public into our home. Yet while it may be tempting to go into overdrive for that preparation, overdoing it can (1 comments)
nutley: Nutley Homeowners Eye Home Sales News - 10/22/12 05:41 AM
Lately you may have noticed that it has become more of a pleasure to open the newspaper when you are checking up on real estate news. In addition to the Internet news feeds, I do still subscribe to some of the old-fashioned kind, too: the ones printed on actual paper (so you can tear interesting articles out and carry them around rather than just Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Ving them). Given the definite possibility that paper papers won't be around much longer, I enjoy them while I still can. The Wall Street Journal is one. I opened it up on Saturday to find (0 comments)
nutley: Picture-Perfect Takes Picture Prep - 09/17/12 05:48 AM
Picture-Perfect Takes Picture Prep The photo that tops your Nutley real estate listing is more than your property's calling card. Make no mistake: that one photo will appear lined up with all the other homes it is going up against. That shot is close to a make-or-break statement of how serious you are about offering your home for sale. To a great extent, it predetermines whether your asking price looks like a bargain…or wishful thinking!
If you have access to an experienced photographer, it's a cinch that their picture won't be blurry or over- or underexposed. However, if it (1 comments)
nutley: Mark Zuckerberg and the 1% Mortgage - 08/20/12 04:32 AM
Mark Zuckerberg and the 1% Mortgage As we've been pleased to point out before, Nutley mortgage interest rates are not just 'low' - that would be like saying Michael Phelps is a 'good' swimmer. When you borrow at a rate below the inflation rate, you essentially borrow for free. Using someone else's money to do a job for you is one of the less well-hidden secrets of successful people - so it should come as no surprise that some of today's most prominent business names are right in there with everyone else, getting a mortgage that takes advantage of today's environment.

nutley: MLS Listings Tell Shift in Nutley Homebuyer Values - 08/13/12 12:22 PM
The latest indications that we have seen the end of the sagging real estate market have started some Nutley homeowners thinking it may be time to sell. For those who are wondering if the long recession has altered how people look for homes - and if so, in what ways - we've noticed a couple of new trends. As before, the first stop for most potential buyers is the Nutley MLS listings. When you compare the language and features most prominent there, huge changes do not leap out. But a comparison with former language does reveal something of a shift in (0 comments)
nutley: Nutley Open Houses Need Staging (Not Upstaging) - 07/30/12 05:18 AM
Nutley open houses can draw potential buyers, then effectively demonstrate not only an attractive physical living space - but a canvas that invites them to project their own ideal living situation onto it. Nevertheless…be warned! Obvious, clichéd staging can have exactly the opposite effect -- even for properties that are standouts in every other way. The danger arises when staging becomes upstaging: when décor rather than the house itself becomes the star. Additionally, there are a couple of common traps it's worthwhile avoiding:
1. Fake scents. The aromas of baking cookies or brewing coffee have become such (1 comments)
nutley: U.S. Mortgage Rate Record & Nutley Home Market - 07/09/12 05:49 AM
About this time a year ago, I was pointing out that with local mortgage rates at near historic lows, the opportunities for first time home ownership had seldom been better. Although, as always, there is a lot more to a family's decision than the cashflow dimension, it's undeniable that those who took advantage of low mortgage rates in 1993 could look forward to spending the next 30 years making the their friends and neighbors feel like they'd missed the boat. When you are paying 6.8% for your home while yournext door neighbor -- who bought just one year later -- is (0 comments)

nutley: Selling a Home Through Targeted Remodeling - 05/15/12 05:46 AM
Though things are looking up in real estate these days, selling a home in Nutley is as demanding as ever. As in any serious business proposition, looking for ways to increase the value of your offering will always pay dividends.
One of the major ways you can make your own Nutley home more marketable is to do a bathroom remodel. It’s always a key focus for prospective buyers…and yes, it does sound like a lot of work (and a lot of money) — but there are a number of ways you can cut down on both.
First, step back (0 comments)
nutley: Nutley Spring Cleaning: a Stitch in Time - 05/10/12 07:52 AM
There’s nothing like being able to bask in the warm glow of well-being a Nutley homeowner gets after finishing a thorough spring cleaning. It’s especially true when you realize how important the annual ritual can be in protecting your greatest asset: your Nutley property.
That warm glow results from doing more than just cleaning your home’s interior, though. It involves maintaining the property in the ways that will prevent having to take more costly steps later. There are three different tasks you can complete to get your home ready for the warm weather that’s on the way. If you follow (0 comments)
