At the end of April, we saw a return of weekend activities on Quimby Street. With COVID-19 cases dwindling in New Jersey, Governor Murphy relaxed mask mandates late last month. So, we should see even more fun summertime events taking place in our fair city. Unfortunately, the weatherman predicts a bit of a soggy weekend. But that will not hinder the very first Westfield Mini Grand Prix. Why? Because they set up tents to protect you from the elements.What: Westfield Mini Grand PrixWhere: Quimby StreetWhen: Saturday, June 12th, 1 pm to 5 pmAdmission: FreeContact: Extreme Party Racing (609) 458-6143 or via emailWestfield Mini Grand Prix 2021Enjoy all of the high-octane, adrenaline-inducing fun of a NASCAR racetrack but on a 1/18th scale.

At this point many township residents are asking, “How long can this Seller’s Market last? Is it too late to put my home on the market?” Looking at the monthly sales trends helps us understand where the market is and where it looks to be heading in the near-term. The current data suggests that the opportunity is still there to sell your home for an optimal return. Since the pandemic real estate boom, the more significant growth in average price and total sales has been in Short Hills while Millburn has had a solid uptick. May numbers were strong for Millburn with Average Sales Price over $1M due to a few large listings closing. Overall, Average Sales Prices remain steady, but there's a noticeable increase in Under Contracts and Total Number of Units Sold compared to both 2020 and 2019. ...

The real estate market is an ever-changing landscape. Currently, sellers wield the upper hand. But that does not mean that buyers will pay an astronomical amount simply because you asked for it. For a successful transaction, you must list your Westfield home at a price appropriate for the current market. Fair market value (FMV) helps sellers determine this price.Fair Market ValueHow to Calculate Fair Market ValueYou must take into account several factors to come to a proper FMV. They change from month to month and sometimes even from week to week. Talk to your Westfield REALTOR® about how the market is behaving right now. Look at how much buyers paid for recently sold homes in your neighborhood recently. Look at the price-per-square-foot of homes similar to your own to provide you with ...

When writing an offer on a Westfield home, buyers must consider what types of contingencies (if any) they want to include. Contingencies stipulate specific conditions that must be met before a sale can be completed. If these conditions are not met, these contingencies allow a buyer to walk away from a sale and keep their earnest money deposit in the process. But buyers need to keep contingencies to a minimum, especially in a seller's market. Otherwise, a seller may pass on their offer and move on to someone else. Here are common contingencies we see in the Westfield real estate market.Common Contingencies for Home BuyersMortgageUnless you plan to pay for your home with all cash, It is extremely important that you talk to a lender about securing financing before you even start looking at...

No one in a country as rich as ours should go hungry. But the fact remains that millions of people miss a meal or two every single day due to food insecurity. Some of those people live right here in our own community. Programs like the Westfield Food Waste Recycling Program help us reduce the amount of food that ends up in our landfills. But how do we make sure we get more food into the bellies of those who need it? Donating to the Westfield Food Drive is a good start.What: Westfield Food Drive 2021Where: Roosevelt Intermediate School (301 Clark St) & Westfield High (550 Dorian Rd)When: Saturday, May 22nd, 9 am to 12 pmWestfield Food Drive 2021Beginning at 9 am on Saturday, May 22nd, police officers and volunteers will be accepting food donations at both Roosevelt Intermediate School an...

Things are starting to (somewhat) return to normal again. Kids went back to school. Businesses and restaurants opened back up, albeit with some restrictions in place. Last week, Quimby Street activities started up again. Now, the Westfield Food Waste Recycling Program is back.Westfield Food Waste Recycling ProgramThe City partnered up with Green Bucket Compost to create a food waste recycling program here in Westfield back in 2019. Unfortunately, they suspended the program last year during the global pandemic. With so many people cooking for themselves over the past 12+ months, household food waste went up. Westfield residents began asking to bring back the recycling program. The City listened. And now it is back. So, instead of dumping it down your garbage disposal or put out to the cu...

The Spring real estate market is in full swing! For sellers and current property owners, the market trend news remains positive. Numbers indicate a continued strong Seller’s Market. For the entire township, Days on Market is still down significantly for April year-over-year. In Short Hills, the average Sales Prices remain substantially higher for both year-to-year and month-to-month. Sales Price to List Price ratios remain high, proving a willingness from buyers to pay the current market rate. In Millburn, Active Listings remain low as Under Contract listing counts are much higher than past years at this time. In Short Hills, Active Listings are increasing but still remain relatively low with Under Contract listings much higher than past years.Millburn April 2021 Market UpdateShort Hill...
