westfield luxury homes: Home Seller Resolutions for 2021 - 01/04/21 11:25 AM
I hope everyone welcomed in the New Year in their own fun yet safe way. Westfield came in at #1 on Coldwell Banker's "Top Places to Live in New Jersey" last October. (It was #9 on Niche.com's 2020 list.) But that comes as no surprise to anyone who lives here. With buyer demand rising, homeowners might want to put their properties on the market soon. As the new year begins, consider these home seller resolutions to make your house ready for a buyer in 2021.

westfield luxury homes: Westfield Area Market Report - May 2019 - 05/31/19 10:08 AM
The Westfield Area Market Report for May 2019 showed that we are seeing a repeat of 2018 trends in the area. Senior homeowners listed their properties in search of a less expensive environment. Meanwhile, investors came in looking for ways to buy cheap and sell high. That meant more homes on the market in May. When supply runs high, sales get a little sluggish. When sales slow down, sellers begin to reduce prices. Then, buyers wait for those price reductions before they pounce. This creates a vicious cycle.
