Yes it should be but due to the way Hamilton splits the school districts it is always best to call the board of Ed and ask them; their number is 609-631-4100 ext 3049.

John Sacktig answered:
High Radon will affect the home price by about $1500. as that is a ball park remediation price. Once remediation is done, the Radon is not an issue.

So, it sounds if you are looking for a negotiation tool, $1500 is about it. Also, as I understand things in the area, South Brunswick and Somerset have a high level of radon gas in general compared to other areas.

Not a bad thing as this is a natural occurrence that just needs remediation.

Kenneth Verbeyst answered:
may be easiest to purchase a tear down. the prices vary greatly depending upon many factors like the train, gas or power lines. You are best off working with an agent willing to give you the time and assistance you need. If you like email me. I closed this past week on a very nice property with 3 acres on Grovers mill pond. ... more

Kenneth Verbeyst answered:
your agent should have shown you comps and in addition if you are getting a mortgage will need appraisal. Have attorney add appraisal clause. Price you pay is balance between your needs/wants and sellers desperation/motivation to sell. Not really apropriate for us as agents to try to analyse / interfere with your relationship with your agent. One thing that is common is buyer's remorse. No matter what price you pay it is likely you will wonder if you could have gotten better terms. ... more

Hi Tom.

Hello again :-)

It seems you've been tracking th NJ market since 2007......or rather the nation's real estate market.

NJ and California are 2 different markets..................please remember that real estate is local.

The most accurate way to track where pricing is headed is to review listings from the MLS for a period of time.
At the same time, know where YOUR comfort zone or qualification regarding financing is.

ALL these variables are changing........not just pricing.
