Pascack Valley Market Slow? Ain't So!!

by Susan Laskin

River Vale Real EstateI just had the privilege of closing a listing of mine at 532Forest Drive in River Vale.  This home just sold at FULL ASKING PRICE!!  Yes, I admit that this was a very lovely home (check out all the photos here!), but this is only one of many instances showing that the market is alive and well for those very intuitive buyers who participate.  There are currently some remarkably beautiful updated and fantastic homes currently on the market, waiting for that smart buyer who is aware that mortgage rates are under 6% and prices are down at the lowest in at least 4 years!!

If you would like some guidance as to those goodies which are hiding among the homes on the market, I am just a phone call away.  It is my pleasure to help you to find that remarkable value where you can plant your roots in one of the loveliest areas in New Jersey. 

Just give me a call on my cell, 201-615-5353, and I will help you find the house of your dreams for a fantastic price.

    House-Hunting?

    by Susan Laskin

    Bergen County Real EstateLet’s say you just spent the day house-hunting.   You’re taking walking tours of various wonderful homes in the area and contemplating all the possibilities your mind can imagine… yet at the end of the day, you find yourself having trouble differentiating between each home you just saw.  Which kitchen had the stainless steel appliances?  Which one had the custom tile work in the master bath?  Was it the one without the walk-in closet? 

    Here’s a tip!  It can be very helpful to carry a small notebook with you as you visit the various homes during the day.  Give each home its own page, noting the price & address at the top of the page.   Some important factors to write down can be the style, color, or any major features that you find appealing or can help job your memory later. 

    If you have any questions please feel free to call me on my cell, 201-615-5353, or visit my website SusanLaskinRealtor.com.

    River Vale Real Estate - It's All in the Numbers

    by Susan Laskin
    So many real estate blogs give lists of numbers..with absolutely no indication of what these numbers actually mean! Over recent months, there has been what is called in the profession, an "oversupply of inventory," meaning that there were too many homes on the market.  So, folks, the good news is that inventory is lower..Let me give you the exact numbers to substantiate this claim.
     
    Active homes on the market in River Vale on July 31, 2008 - 65 Homes
     
    Actives homes on the market in River Vale on August 31, 2008 - 59 Homes
     
    Actives homes on the marketi n River Vale on September 30, 2008 -  58 Homes
     
    Actives homes on the market in River Vale on October 31, 2008 - 51 Homes
     
    For Sellers, this means that there is less competition.  For Buyers, this means that there are fewer homes to purchase, and perhaps the beginning of a turn around in the market place. 
     
    If you are a serious Seller, please call me to find out how my proven marketing program will sell your home. 
     
    If you are a Buyer, remember that prices are incredibly low, and there are wonderful buys to be had in pristine locations!  Please don't wait for the market to turn around, and miss this remarkable opportunity to purchase a wonderful home at an exceptionally low price!
     
    I am always just a phone call away..my cell is 201-615-5353.
     
    Remember..My client's goals are my #1 Priority!
