Hi Dina,

New construction in Short Hills is about 200 to 250/sq ft. Below is a link to all of the new construction currently on the market in town. http://emailrpt.gsmls.com/public/show_public_report_rpt.do?r…

Taxes will depend on sale price. They tend to be higher in Old Short Hills, as are prices. If you give me a general price range, I can give you more detailed info on that.

Also, I have home sale prices and stats on my website if you're interested: http://www.SueAdler.com .
If you're interested in purchasing a "tear down" to build your new house, prices of land will vary depending upon what part of town you're looking in as well. If you'd like to discuss in further detail, feel free to call me on my cell (973)464-9129.

Hi Dina,

Generally, the taxes on new construction are based on what the sale price is times the current tax rate (in Short Hills, the new rate is 1.755). This is the maximum the taxes will be, though most likely, it will be less.

The price of new construction per square foot depends on location and style. Smaller homes could be more, depending on where they are located and type of home being built.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 973-715-8555 and I'd be happy to help you. I currently have 4 listings that are new construction in Short Hills and specialize in this area.

Warm Regards,

Prices on new construction are at $225 a sq ft. Taxes will be determined by price times the tax rate. There are many new homes on the market and ones that have sellers in them for a short period of time and have taxes established. Visit my web site: CherreDoesItAgain.com that will lead you to new construction and homes that are only a few years old w established taxes.
Where are you moving from? I lived in Short Hilll and my children graduated from the top high school in the state. Please feel free to call me w any other questons. i have been involved w new construction for over 14 years AND my son is a builder. He can be of help in this price range also. 973 951 6665
