oakland: MAHWAH Real Estate is MOVING! - 06/08/09 05:09 AM
Things are moving .... in Mahwah, New Jersey. I have researched several towns in the Bergen County area this morning on the NJMLS. In the period ending today over 40 homes have gone under contract or have sold in the last 3 months. The average price of a home under contract or SOLD during this period is  $785,338.
Now is the time to sell because the spring/summer market is here and interest rates are at an all time LOW. Buyers have their choices and sellers are negotiating. Perhaps in contrast to other areas of the country...Mahwah and Bergen County is MOVING!

oakland: Good NEWS --- NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY --- From Headlines this week - 03/25/09 02:05 AM
Let's take a look at some of the headlines this week. We will hear a lot of the woulda, coulda, shoulda's next year when people wonder why they did not lock into that rate or buy that GREAT home in 2009.
I have recently witnessed multiple offer situations in the Bergen County area --- Oakland, for example --- on homes priced below $450,000. In Mahwah, several million dollar plus homes have gone into attorney review in the past 7 days. ( now we know a lot can happen between now and the closing date but that is a lot of activity … (0 comments)

oakland: THE SPRING MARKET is Almost Here! Renewed interest since January... - 01/13/09 11:06 PM
In TODAY's news --- I have seen this myself in recent activity in the market. Since January, my listings have seen increased showings and activity. I have had more inquiries and my buyers --- who were dormant throughout the holidays --- have wanted to go out and see homes again. A couple of them have wanted to set days ( 2 times a week ) to agressively ramp up their home search. 
Once we get throught the refinancing surge --- the spring real estate market will kick in!
Is there anyone else seeing this uptick in interest recently?

oakland: Refinancing Surge May Lead the Way to NEW MORTGAGES - 12/04/08 03:38 AM
In case you have not heard --- according to the Mortgage Banker's Association:
Applications to refinance home-mortgages jumped by a record amount, as borrowers flocked to take advantage of falling mortgage rates -- which were driven down by the government's announcement that it would step in to stabilize the mortgage market.
The number of applications tripled --- the largest increase since the poll data began back in the 90's.
Applications to purchase homes, which tend to be less sensitive to interest-rate movements, also increased, though by a smaller amount.
The surge in application volume comes as mortgage rates fell by more … (0 comments)

Oakland is HOT this summer! I hope it continues.  Although the dog days of summer are upon us...it seems that real estate has picked up in the last 2-3 months --- as far as actual under contract and closed sales. PRICING seems to be a key factor in this town where opportunities abound.
Listed below is the data gleened from the NJMLS for the last two months. ( May 21 - July 21, 2008). The number of homes that have gone under contract or that have sold has gone up compared with two months prior. Of interest to note --- there is only … (0 comments)

oakland: The Good News --- School Report Cards and Best of Lists - 05/06/08 01:07 AM
Recently, we have seen some concern about negative news in the media. I am an avid reader and I think the media can be a terrific resource for up to the minute research and information.  
Often, realtors are asked about the quality of the local schools. There are many reports available to share with buyers and I usually look to the local media for additional up-to-date information about area schools. It is a good idea to share a variety of sources about schools and towns so that the buyer can make a decision based on their criteria.
Bergen County has wonderful towns and … (2 comments)

oakland: Real Estate Snapshot / Oakland, NJ - Homes - 04/30/08 06:12 AM
A view inside my listing in Oakland, NJ. I have active listings in Oakland and the surrounding Bergen County area so I like to keep my sellers and buyers abreast of what the real picture looks like according to the njmls as far as sales go. I ran the numbers & included the last 6 months for the homes under contract or pending sale. From the chart below, you can see when homes are priced right.... they sell...some at the higher end of the price range...going into contract pretty quickly ( contrary to the media's point of view ).
Location and pricing are key … (0 comments)
