River Vale Market Information for December 2008

by Susan Laskin

As we’re approaching the end of this year, here’s some local Real Estate Market information for the town of River Vale.  There are currently 43 homes on the market with a median listing price of $767,475. 

Last Month – Here’s What Happened!

·         8 River Vale Homes sold in November

·         The average Listing Price was $639,121

·         The average Selling Price was $596,564

      These numbers are deceiving, since one home, which was a short sale and in very poor condition, sold at significantly under the asking price.  Most buyers walked away from this home due to the amount of work which needed to be done. 

On average, homes in River Vale during the month of November sold for 93.68% of the asking price.

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.

    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!
