There were three sales in 2012, though none the same model as 4103. A 2 bedroom sold for $83,324, a 3 bedroom sold for $173,633 and a 1 bedroom for $80,497. They all sold right at their assessed values.... more
Inventory is low to many factors but the most common is that people are either underwater and cannot afford to sell and lose money on their home or they are content with that neighborhood... the only sellers these days are empty nesters looking to "cash in" on the low inventory period and those forced to move (foreclosure, short sale or business/career move)... empty nesters are your biggest hope but also a nightmare.. most have not updated their homes in decades, many are are in run down condition and they are asking and many times (depending on location) getting what they are looking for.. so be prepared to buy a home that doesn't have it all and you will need money behind your offer to pay to update and repair your purchase... we just bought in whippany and consider ourselves fortunate but we paid over 100k more than we started looking for... but we are very happy with our purchase and the neighborhood is great looking..... more
As a realtor specializing in the area and currently have a property listed at 111 Whippany Rd, I can see where you would have concerns. I would agree with going to the area during different times to see how the traffic and parking situation affect the neighborhood. I will tell you however that the area around the high school is one of the most saught after in Whippany and always sells regardless of the traffic situation. Most of the traffic in that area is local and is not continuous all day long. One other plus is that they do a great 4th of July fireworks display at the high school and you don't have to leave your house to enjoy it! Let me know if you have any other questions, I will be glad to answer them.

Hanover is made up of Whipppany and Cedar Knolls. Both sides of town send their children to Whippany Park High School which is very well ranked amount the top high schools in the state of NJ. There are 3 elementary schools in town considered neighborhood schools. They all follow the same ciriculum. There is not major difference between the two sides of town really. It mostly boils down to location. I have enjoyed living in Whippany for many years and as a past PTA board officer, I can tell you, it is a great town to live in.
Jackie is right! They are both great towns! The taxes in Hanover Twp (Whippany) will tend to be a little lower. If schools are your issue, then go compare the schools. Each place has excellent schools, but your definition of excellence may be different from mine since I have no children in the school system. I happen to live in Whippany, so I might be a little slanted toward Hanover Township.
I would be more than happy to meet with you to compare your parameters to what each town offers. Please call me at 201.463.9656... more
