Members of the International Code Council's Residential Building Code Committee (RBCC) have made it clear that fire sprinklers are destined to become a standard feature in all new homes. The fire sprinkler requirement was added to the International Residential Code (IRC) last year, and it is scheduled to become effective January 1, 2011, in states that adopt the latest version of this code. Currently, 48 states use the IRC as a basis of regulating residential construction, although some states lag behind in adopting updates. At a hearing held earlier this week, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) had petitioned the International Code Council (ICC), which publishes the IRC, to repeal the fire sprinkler requirement, but the RBCC rejected that request by a vote of 7 to 4. "Thi...

Here are questions that haven't been asked during the gubernatorial election campaign: What kind of state should New Jersey be? How should its people live - separately, divided by race and wealth? Or together, in integrated communities, sharing its riches and its problems?

Now with the stimulus package passed, how will this effect the real estate market?  How can we advise our buyers and sellers to best protect them in this market?  Any ideas out there? Do you realtors believe as I do that buying in this market is unique.  Inventory + low interest rates.  In Morristown and surrounding area, we are on a NJ Direct Train to NYC.  Great for people who work in  NYC but don't want to pay the prices of Manhattan townhomes.  Morristown has it all.  Many townhomes in all price ranges as well as single family homes.

Real estate activity at Moore Estate in 2008 has been rather disappointing.    Number of sales are down 50% and median and average sales prices are down and days on market have increased by 24% and average list to sale price is now 95.9% instead of the 97.9% in 2007.  There are many reasons for this, including: The national and local economy and tight mortgage market More properties and fewer buyers equals more supply, less demand, putting pressure on prices The primarey target markets for The Moore Estate is downsizing empty nesters - and they are either unable to sell their larger homes or unwilling to sell at market prices, therefore they are unable to move Currently there are 7 homes for sale in Moore Estate, from 4 Davenport for $499,000 to 7 Morgan Place at an asking price of $1,3...

Well, I thought it was a buyers market.  That's what everyone keeps screaming.  Well to tell you the truth I have been having a fairly good year this year.  That was up until we hit the financial crisis then the $hit hit the fan, deals fell apart, buyers backed away yada yada yada. I have to say though that there are some really great deals out there.  A few weeks ago I found one of them in fact.  It was a home over on Western Ave here in Morristown New Jersey.  This home was a Morristown Foreclosure and the deal looked good.  I put my offer together and the responce was we already have offers.  Come back with your highest and best.  Highest and best, well I have not heard that since I had to tell REALTORS that on a house I sold in May over in West Orange.  Since we have been in the cre...

These are dark days for the Real Estate markets around the country, and for mortgage companies, and for the economy in general.  Every place I turn, people are talking about it, every news channel I put the TV on, they are talking about it.  I have to say, I love it, I just love it!! Am I some person who thrives on the misery of others you might be asking yourselves? No not really, I believe that things always look the worst, like everything could just come to an end right before they start getting better.  In watching the news again today while they talked about Wamo needing to be bought out or it will fail, I thought to myself, I should check my bank accounts and see if I can send my 2008 IRA contribution in early, put it all to work, possibly buy shares in the S&P 500, or if I want t...

There is a very costly mistake that Morristown New Jersey home sellers are continually making.  I have blogged about this before, the statistics support what I have been saying all along.  Yet over and over again I see this same mistake repeated.  It gets to the point where I just shake my head in wonderment what some of these Morristown NJ Home sellers are smoking. Just when I think the news media has publicised the downturn in the real estate market way more then enough, yet another home comes on the market listed 10% or more too high.  Over and over again I am proved right, all it takes is a little time and the price reduction comes. Another interesting fact seems to play out every month when I do the monthly Morristown NJ Real Estate market update.  Every month 40% to 60% of the hom...

The picture of the Morristown NJ Real Estate market shows that the market is moving forward in a steady manor.  We have not seen a burst of home sales like in a few other markets such as Madison, Chatham and Summit New Jersey, but things have not fallen apart ether. Last month was a ok month, if you were a home seller here in Morristown you understood the importance of pricing and how if you get it wrong you hardly even get any showings let alone a offer on your home.
