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.
The federal government provided a big boost to home sales this spring by offering first-time buyers a tax credit of up to $8,000. Homeowners looking to upgrade could qualify for a credit of up to $6,500. The deadline for getting a signed sales contract was April 30.
Now all that said, in the town of Oradell, New Jersey....home sales are progressing but are still alittle slow at the upper end of the spectrum. I ran the data detail below for the town based on availables, under contract and actual solds --- for the past 6 MONTHS. I researched and compiled the data from the NJMLS database. Total active inventory --- is 58 --- and actual solds are --- 25.
--- Your agent is part of your team. You must take time to research and pick a qualified full time real estate agent. Once you are comfortable with them as a member of your team --- you must let them do their job. They are state licensed professionals in the real estate business. They are there to give you advise and counsel based on their training and experience. Afterall, that is why you hired them, right?
