You bet. Gorgeous Liquid Amber reached at least 4 stories high and cracked our cement patio which I now have to replace before someone trips and gets hurt. Unfortunately, I had to take it down before it also did damage to the house.. I am now in the process of looking for a smaller tree with roots that go down. ... more

Answered your other question with a question because I couldn't find this post.

Anyway, I just checked the MLS for a 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home with a 2 car garage, and I can't seen to find a 2 story home with no basement built around 1984 that is active, in attorney review or under contract.

Are you looking to buy this home, or is it yours and you want to sell it? If I had to guess, is this home in Woodbrook Corners?

Although I love John , I think in this instance, since I specialize in Edison, it's appropriate to ask you to give me a call or email me so I can get more information from to get a clearer idea of what you are asking.

Hope to hear from you.

Cant' seem to find your previous question. Are you asking about listing a house, or buying this particular home?

I am an Edison resident since 1983, specialize in, and know the town well. Give me a call or email me and we can discuss in private.

I appreciated all of the responses and read them all. I'm going with a more aesthetic response. Trees too close to the home are always a problem not only to the foundation, but for falling limbs damaging the roof and siding. There is a wonderful balance of trees on a property that is most appealing. Too many trees cause moss on the ground and not enough precious sun light into the home. Barren properties without trees make a home look like it was dropped on the land, a sad existence with many new developments.
Trees are remarkably beautiful and we as Realtors favor the tree-lined streets and beautifully landscaped properties.

I never mind the leaves that fall because I enjoy the leaves that sprout in the Spring and the beauty of the green all summer.

Trees well planted is the key, but a home without trees (tall or otherwise) is a lacking in charm and appeal. -

If you are looking at a small retail space Rohit, then most Realtors will be happy to help you and give you the comparables and acceptable rates for retail space based on the Triple Net policy of retail space and commercial space wherein you are given a price per square foot of the space and you agree to a contract that would include a partial payment of taxes and insurance as well.

If you are looking at a large space that would include many units and additional space to be rented out you will do yourself a favor to use a Commercial Broker. Retail space and lareg warehousing or commercial production space are handled differently.

I live in Edison and I work in Edison as well. If you give me a call, I will give you the guidance that you are looking for.

Dear M & m,

As a Realtor and Civil Engineer, following will be your approximate costs:

Architectural and Structural Design: $3,500-$4,500
Permits and Township fees: $450
Cost of Construction: Minimum of $120- $150/SFT. If any contractor is doing the work cheaper than this, I will recommend to double check with other contractors. There are times when Contractor's take a job at a low price and cannot finish the work.

As far as return is concerned, I do not think you should consider any return on that with the exception of an additonal bedrm with full bath. I, Myself is not a big fan of additons.
Remember one thing, when you re-sale this house, the age of the house will still be the original age built and not the age when you did the addition.

For any further questions, Please contact me at my cell# 732-277-9321.

The title company can attach an addendum to the policy and issue clear title, then you are good to go. I'm sure your attorneys are advising you in the proper manner.

Best wishes to you in your new home on Tamarack Road. ... more

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Hi there Namrata, Kimberly's answer is a good one - the appraiser using measurement as a primary metric of assessing value - so I would put more credence on his/her very current tally than the estimate from the tax office. As Kimberly points out, may be that the town assessor has not been inside the property for some time. The discrepancy may be working in your favor from a tax bill standpoint.

Good luck,
Jeannie Feenick
