We have been trying to sell our home in Long Valley for the past year - guess what - agents don't sell your home. They simply list it on multiple websites, sit back and put their feet up. The showing agents don't know anything about your home, they are just trying to sell a house, any house. So your house just sits because no one is actively selling it.

Unless you're willing to give your house away and pay a huge commission, don't bother to list it with an agent. It is a buyer's market now and the agents constantly beat you up about dropping the price. You will pay a high commission for zero selling of your house. Might as well sell it yourself and save that fee. There are plenty of "for sale by owner" websites and Zillow, Trulia and realtor.com all let you list for free. We will be doing that when our current contract expires.

It's so high in Long Valley because it's an area of many "keep up with the Jones", and they've over extended themselves. I think the rate may not be as high as 40% of actual homes, but it is certainly much higher than other areas. ... more

In Long Valley, they are typically double or more what you are paying now. The prices are considerably higher too. Taxes are generally lower than that close by in Mt Olive, and even lower in Hackettstown/Mansfield/Independence. Be careful to know which township the property is in, all 5 of the townships can have Hackettstown mailing addresses. The mailing address means very little, but the township is everything about which county taxes, which schools, what is in included in the taxes, etc. ... more

Hi Janice,

It is true, all of Long Valley is nice. As a long valley resident myself I can vouch for that statement!
It is a matter of preference in whether you like living in a development or if you like privacy & land.
There are also townhome developments as well. Something for everyone!
Please feel free to contact me if you need any help finding your "preference"!
Best Regards,

Grace Stampf

Nestling Woods is a wonderful, sought after development in Long Valley, NJ. The schools are top rated and people are proud of their community! Houses in this particular development tend to go quickly as well!

Best Regards from Long Valley resident,

It is unfortunate but it does happen, once in a while. Your agency's company may subscribe to a company that is an 'aggregator' meaning that company broadcasts out to numerous. Sometimes the feed has a glitch and although it might be correct on all of the sites, sometimes one site doesn't accept the feed correctly.
I would ask your associate to contact the company which owns the site and manually have them correct it.
This will be fixed in no time.
Wishing you well on your sale!

You have to go to my listings on Trulia. If you do not see your listing, you type in the address. include zip code, and then you check the box that you are the owner of this listing. You can edit and add photos here as well. Most important is that you put your listing in Crestedg. If you do not know how to do that, ask your Administrator. Once you get the handle, you will be fine. Also, you can market your listings on Zillow, Homefinder.com, craigslist and other search engines. Good luck! Celeste 973 219-7134. ... more

Another option is the train out of Gladstone to NYC. The "Gladstone Line" terminates at Hoboken, and you can take the ferry or the PATH to Manhattan. Depending on the time of day and where you live in Long Valley and where you are commuting to in NYC, there are several options. However, having lived in Long Valley for 27 years and commuting daily to lower Manhattan by train for some of that time, suffice it to say that it is a long commute. Plan on 1 1/2 hours or longer door to door. Long Valley is roughly 41 miles from NYC and that is a pretty sizable commute, no matter how convenient the bus/train is. ... more

Washington Township (Long Valley) is the only town served by West Morris Central High School, located on Bartley Road. Like Janet says, a resident of Long Valley might have a Califon, Chester or Hackettstown mailing address, depending on the location, but they still attend West Morris Central. ... more

Giselle, let me know if you are still interested in a home with owner financing. I have a seller who might consider that.

Take a deep breath and hang in there. With Relo owned properties, each inquiry/negotation is like running something up a long flag pole and bringing it back down again. You are working with a company, and with that comes the delays that go so often with beauracracy. Keep you agent and attorney on it, so you don't fall to the bottom of someone's pile.

Good luck with your closing!

Best,

Hello J Walton. Land is very unique to price. There are many factors to consider including if the property if flat, how much excavation needs to be done, can the land support a well/septic along with set-back restrictions on building due to wetlands, ponds and others. If you wish to search some properties on my website, feel free to go there and sign up to be a VIP buyer (www.agentjustin.com). You can also have the NEWEST listings emailed directly to you the moment they come on the market. I wish you the best of luck. ... more

Hello Susan,
Real estate values have more than doubled in the last 10 years. We are seeing a small retreat from the highs reached in early 2006. I would guess you have little or no mortgage left, so yes this is a good time to sell and a great time to buy. ... more
