bergen county: What to do when the Homeowner wants to see all OFFERS! - 11/17/10 01:25 AM
The OWNER SAYS --- Present all reasonable OFFERS !
What next? Does this really mean... all offers?
Currently in our area, we are in a state of virtual limbo. Seller's are motivated. They have adjusted their prices and they are ready, willing and able to see ALL OFFERS. And, buyers are looking. They come back, once, twice, even three times. But, no offers on paper.
What's an agent to do?
1. Look at the sales comps --- weekly.
Make sure that the pricing of the home is current with the weekly market adjustments. Yes, weekly. It seems to be alittle more … (3 comments)

bergen county: Real Estate Market Snapshot /// Allendale, New Jersey - 09/07/10 06:32 AM
 
It is that time of year again --- back-to-school and back to reviewing the sales and market data in order to sharpen the pencil for better pricing. The summer market was slow particularly in August but...still ... about 26 homes sold in Allendale in the last 3 months. This data is gleened from the NJMLS sales stats.
Hopefully, the sales trend in this town will continue to show strength this fall --- if homes are priced well. Homes in the upper end are still showing some signs of a struggle.

The luxury portion of the market is slower --- as it is for other markets in Northern Bergen County.

bergen county: Market Snapshot /// Upper Saddle River, NJ - 09/07/10 05:53 AM
I was researching the data for a client today and I took a look at all the availables, under contract and SOLDS for the last 3 months in Upper Saddle River. This town would be considered --- a luxury zip code --- and the data for this market that includes homes/properties over the $850,000 price point. There are a few residential homes below this price level, however, most of those would need to be totally renovated or is still considered a "knock down" --- yes, even in this market This gives you a picture of the "luxury market" activity in the … (1 comments)

 While giving each of my sellers a market update --- for sales in their particular town --- I researched the overall statistics for several popular towns in Northern Bergen County. I researched the NJMLS data base for actives,  under contract and SOLD for the past 6 months.

The National Association of Realtors has stated that sales of previously owned homes rose 7.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.77 million. That was the best showing in five months and better than the 5.63 million units economists had expected.
