Fairway Market Open In Paramus NJ Posted on April 4th, 2009 Carmelo No comments Hundreds of shoppers lined up armed with their green shopping carts, hours before the store opened, to step into Fairway, which according to its motto, is "Like no other market." " The price is the draw right now because my husband is unemployed and I'm trying to save," said shopper Maria from New Milford who stood at the front of the line of eager customers looking for deals. There is a large and varied organic food section and shoppers also can find a wide variety in the deli, prepared food, and fresh meat and fish departments. Fairway has an extensive kosher section, a kosher butcher on staff and a rabbi on the premises, which makes this week's opening especially timely with Passover less than two weeks a...

Paramus home sales from 2003 to 2008 show a sales volume decline from 2005 of 43.92%. The median sales price also fell over 12.15% from the high year of 2007. Although the volume has fallen significantly, prices have been resistant to fall as dramatically as other areas of the country. Sellers have not drastically reduces the list prices. Paramus from 2002 low, didn't run up as much as other areas either. It went up within the 50-100% range, considerable and above trend, but not like the 200-300% of the more speculative areas of Florida, Southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. Areas that did not have large quantities of new properties to distribute, such as Bergen County NJ, did not use the toxic financing as often to fuel market values. I am hoping that the new mortgage programs are ...

THIS IS A GREAT ARTICLE THAT I CAME ACROSS AND WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE   It's No Different This Time With fear and uncertainty running rampant, we can look to the past as ameans of illuminating the future.The economy and the markets over the past 30 years have had their share ofdownturns. We have had some really tough markets in the mid '70s, early'80s, late '80s and at the inception of the new millennium.Each of these time periods provide some clues about what's to come, namely:The banking system will hold together; now is probably a better time to buythan to sell; investors will return to transparent investments that theyunderstand.It's no different this time, but at market extremes, there are alwaysdelusional proclamations that "It's different this time."
