MLS has date settings and allows agents to pull comparable sales from a specific date range — say January to May of 2010. We can then use those comparable sales to recreate the market conditions of the time period. This can be extremely helpful when pricing unique properties or infill development when you have few comparable sales in your marketplace recently. And if you are in a larger city, the Case-Shiller index tracks housing prices in major metro areas and has done so for decades. You can effectively price your home in today’s dollars and then use the Case-Shiller index to adjust the price back to the time you are looking for. ... more

Michelle Norton answered:
The current owner can give the tenants the 60 days notice while it is under contract. The only risk would be for the owner if the sale doesn't go through. Any lease in place that is not renewed will go to month to month with the same terms, in this case the owner would not need to renew the lease for a year. Hope this helps! ... more

Jonathan Faccone answered:
Go the Building Department and speak to Zoning if your considering doing substantial renovations (add a levels, additions). They will be able to help you. The building department will help you with what type of work needs to be permitted, such as interior renovations like changing the interior structure, moving plumbing, updating electrical etc. If you plan on doing kitchen and bath work, as long as the fixtures remain existent (same place) and your upgrading the cosmetics then no permits are required. However when you start to get into demoing sheetrock, taking down or moving walls, you will need permits. In any case, all of these questions will be addressed by them.

Best of luck,

Jon

Hi John,

Overall you cannot go wrong with the Bridgewater-Raritan public school system. Bradley Gardens is a good school, but is a matter of personal experience as well. I went through the Bridgewater school system and had a great educational experience. Bridgewater is a in demand town right now, and a big reason is the schools.

Best of luck on your search.

Jon

"As You Like It" in Raritan is one of the best local stops in the area. Not exactly Bridgewater, but certainly close enough.

Enjoy!

The $8,000 number was the correct one - the data point simply was incorrect. That home sold quickly, undercontract in 30 days. If you are interested in Bridgewater, visit www.Homes08807.com to search among all actively listed properties.
