Hi,

There is only one 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home for sale in Lawrence Square Village and it is currently under contract. The asking price is $209,900 and the original price was $219k and was on the market 242 days. It is an end unit with a few updated features.

There are several 2 bedroom/ 2 bath units for sale ranging from $197k to $204k. The 2 BR/2 Bath units that have sold in the past 6 months have ranged from $179k to $190k.

If you would like to know at what price I would personally list the home for, please contact me at 609-575-8801 or e-mail me at atustin@yahoo.com. In addition, feel free to search homes on my website at www.Anne-MarieTustin.com.

Good luck!
Anne-Marie

Hi G: Why restrict yourself to these communities? There are plenty of locations all the way into Bucks County, PA (Where I am licensed as well and where I have lived, off and on) that are convenient to NJDOT trains initiating in Trenton and proceeding up the primary eastern corridor to NYC.

Warminster is a tough spot to get to from this area, time wise (I used to commute to Fort Washington but it was right off the turnpike.) It's all back roads and two lane highways wending through quaint towns like Richboro and Jamison. Nice but not fun at rush hour.

I would NOT go too far into PA although you can do as you please, because there is no good way to get to NYC further southwest than Trenton. Septa can be picked up, of course and a transfer made in Trenton but that seems to be more trouble than you need.

As you might note, our local Keller Williams office has several experienced and energetic agents that you might consult. I'd pick an agent and stick with him or her.

Best wishes with your search!

Hi, I am actively marketing a home right now in Lawrenceville. I sold a very nice cape cod with a side lot this spring. I also have a home for sale in Lawrenceville in a professional R-2B zone.

Selling a house is one of the most complex transaction that most people will make in their lifetime. The quality of the experience depends largely on the real estate agent that you choose.

I have been selling real estate in the area for 20 years. It is my life's work and I have been very successful. I lived in Lawrenceville and raised my two children in Lawrenceville.

I would love to discuss your real estate needs. You will have my full undivided attention if you list your house with me I promise you!

Hi Fred,
You may be surprised of how the market has changed. There are a couple of ways for you to check on prices. One is to access the Market Snapshot on my website from your computer at home. It will provide some statistical information on homes similiar to yours, or you can get a complementary market analysis of your home which I will prepare for you after getting the statistics of your home. The market analysis combined with the Otteau Report will provide you with the information you are requesting. Call me if you would like this material. ... more

Hi V,

as a buyer it is important for you to know that agency relationshps are very strict in Nj .

A listing agent represents the seller at all times & any information you share with them can be used to benefit the seller/owner.
A coldwell banker agent ( besides this listing agent) from this office would also be acting as a dual agent - which means they represent BOTH buyer & seller.

A dual agency in this market hurts you as a buyer, because you should hire an agent who can negotiate for you aggressively & in finding out ALL details regarding a home you're interested in.......try to obtain all details that benefit YOU as the Buyer.

Please contact a local realtor specializing in this area.......ask them to let you know if they can represent you as a buyer's agent ONLY or not.

Agent relationships & how they represent a buyer or a seller should be the FIRST & MOST IMportant information made available to a client/customer.

Buying & selling real estate is a bit more complicated than the internet can make it seem.

Also, to Emily,
Plase be aware that Broker reciprocity is a fundamental basis of listings made available on sites such as Trulia & others. If ,as a representative of Trulia you are promoting a particular broker, whether or not that is the listing broker, that violates the reciprocity agreement..
If a link is available on Trulia, just post the link & let the consumer decide. That is the purpose of Broker reciprocity. Cooperation & equal & fair exposure to PROPERTY LISTINGS.

Unless, now Trulia is also a Coldwell Banker partner.

Marc Paolella answered:
The market is fairly steady. If you price your home well, it will sell in a normal marketing time of 60-90 days. This is the case for most of New Jersey, so we are lucky compared with many other states. Although it's going to be a calmer Spring market than in the past, it shouldn't be too bad. ... more
