Hi Johnathan,

With interest rates historically low, I would strongly suggest you seriously consider purchasing a home rather than renting one. Of course this depends on your financial situation, credit score, down payment and job security. I recently did a few blogs pertaining to this topic and will attach for your review. Best of luck to you.

That does seem to be a common question from home sellers.
Finding the right answer begins with the analysis completed by your agent regarding market activity in your area. Based on that data you would be able to project the activity level of your home.
Be aware, this is a multi-dimensional analysis.
Let's assume the data suggests there are 100 active buyers for homes like yours in your area. Based on the hierarchy of home search activity your home should have received a volume of activity that is a multiple of that number through effective marketing channels. Assuming this to be true (the marketing is effective)...the active buyers ARE seeing your home but have rejected the option to come to your address to see it. You may need to re-evaluate your value position.

The reality may be, based on historical data, your home IS receiving the appropriate activity. Consult your real estate professional regarding the marketing results. Perhaps patience is need or your situation has changed and you need to manipulate the timeline. Your agent will present you with the options available.

Agents of singular dimension will readily point out if you lower the price sufficiently, anything will sell. This approach may not be the best option for guarding your hard earned equity. Let the data speak for itself and don't even entertain the thought you will be able to sell your home in defiance of what the historical data reveals.

More data is needed.
Best of success to you,

Hi Joe -

Home sales are slower in general, I think you know that.

But, what I do kow that homes that are priced correctly will sell, regardless of the economy and such.
Is is like anything else. Believe it or not, there are still a lot of home selers that are hanging onto 2004 -2005 pricing.

Your Realtor should have the market comps and knowledge of the area to come and discuss the actual pricing, not a number to get your home listed. If it is priced correctly it will sell.

HI Laurie,
I don't know what the situation is with HAzlet I wll be glad to look into it and get back to you. Have you considered commuting by bus? They have park and ride areas which makes it alittle easier. Otherwise you are right it is some what difficult to get permits to park. I believe Little Silver has a lottery every year around September for their permits if that helps you any.

Hi Michmyers

Are you considering a move up to northern NJ?

Maplewood (or S Orange) might be good options. Maplewood Village is charming, and offers shops, restaurants and a friendly small town vibe - even a small movie theater......people actually smile and say hello! S. Orange village also offers shops, , restaurants and a park.........The other good news is.....there is the midtown direct train to Penn station...a 40 min ride. with stops in both village centers.

Feel free to reach out to me, and I'd be happy to share more information and send you some listings........knowing your price range will help me come up with other suggestions, too.

Best wishes............

Heather Daccurso answered:
Hi Sue,
If you have a written offer from a pre-approved buyer than you can contact a real estate attorney to complete the transaction. However, you have to make sure the bids are from ready, willing and able buyers otherwise it is best to list your home with a real estate agent who will help find that buyer and look out for your best interest during the transaction.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Jillian Mason answered:
A realtor can put anything there. As stated before, some put zero, others put up to a year. And it is void if you relist with another broker. This term after expiration, as with everything else, can be negotiated. Hope this helps :)

Jillian Mason answered:
Hi Joanne. Are you talking about the clause that states that after so many days after your listing expires, if someone who saw the home during the time it was listed decides to buy the home, he is due a commission? Just an FYI, I usually put 6 months on that so that I am covered for a full six months and some agents put a year. If you list with another broker, this becomes null and void for him though so he will not get paid. If you need further explanation or still want to get your home sold, call me. I don't list homes, I sell them!

Yes, you can. You should contact the broker that the realtor represents. Discuss the situation with them. If you still cannot resolve the situation, then you have the right to tell that broker that you want to cancel your listing agreement. This is the short answer to your question. ... more

Eric Pearl answered:
I believe you can start looking anytime. The challenge for you will be to coordinate your sale with your new purchase, so I think you will want to keep a list of your best possible new homes while you continue to market and sell your current home. We’re currently experiencing a strong buyers market – which means that it’ll probably take longer to sell your home than you expect. I don’t think you want to purchase your next home yet – you won’t want to agree to a contract of sale – the risk is you could end up owning two homes and carrying two mortgages. But I think you would be smart to investigate the market to see what homes are available, so that when you do get an offer and are negotiating the final details, you will have a good idea of the best homes available for your move. Good luck

Susan McLaughlin answered:
I think Hazlet is a good choice. It is one of relatively few Monmouth County towns where you have a reasonable commute into the city and still have a wide choice of houses in an affordable price range. Ease of commute, along with other factors like the qualty of a particular town's schools will continue to make towns appealing. Unless you are in love with that particular house, keep looking - Hazlet has a wide range of homes. You didn't say what your price range was, but I have seen some very roomy split levels in Hazlet with great room sizes. ... more
