It appears that our very friendly deer are becoming second nature to our friendly River Vale Township.  As of late, there have been sightings of newly erected signs stating "Beware of Deer".  I just drove up to my home, and in my back yard in my River Vale home of over 20 years, there were 7 deer grazing on my rear rock wall.  I quickly ran inside (to grab my camera), stopping to notice that one of the deer was having a staring contest with me.  No longer afraid of the human element, these beautiful creatures are roaming freely throughout  our town.  If we ever had any doubt, nature is alive and well in River Vale!  Learn more about River Vale and the other Pascack Valley towns at my website SusanLaskinRealtor.com  Interested in Pascack Valley Real Estate?  Browse through my featured ho...

River Vale Real Estate Sales To study the data for River Vale New Jersey for sale from 2005 to Oct. 2008, it is astonishing to see that the average sales price is only off about 10% from the average high prices. Two comparisons were used, Residential/Condo closed sales data from Bergen County filings and Residential only, NJMLS all Broker sales data. The graphs demonstrate the comparisons of sales, average price and units sold. There may be a few commercial sales mixed in the county data, I removed many from the data to try to make it residential/condo property only. With 30 years of doing technical market analysis for stocks and commodities, I have a feel for data slippage when using averages. I have estimated true high to current low to be about 14-16%. This is due to using yearly ave...

Many different things happen in the course of the day. Having your camera helps save it. I see many events out on the jobs. Mostly at a fast pace, running though new houses being built. Talking to contractors and tradesman, you rarely catch a break. But when a bunch of 4 legged friends walk up with puffy tails and curious eyes, you have to stop and take notice. I will share some of it with you. It makes my day, I hope it give you a smile. Richard view my web site for real estate and new homes

A group of River Vale residents are joining together to create a group whose purpose is to "reduce their environmental impact", according to Rosemary Dreger Carey, a River Vale resident.  The press release issued by the new organization, "The Pascack Sustainability Club", will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas on how to live in an environmentally responsible way.  This grass roots organization will address personal, local and governmental ways that we can become environmentally friendly.

River Vale Election Process Brings Community Together!   I just went to vote at the Woodside Elementary School in River Vale, which is closed today in honor of Election Day.  I've been coming here to vote for years, and have fond memories of dropping my children off as they attended this excellent school.  As I was signing in, one of the Poll Sitters smiled and asked me how the Real Estate Business was going.  I had just shown her home a few weeks ago.  This is one example of what I love most about River Vale - its small town appeal!  People know one another, and speak to one another.  In our busy lives, it is nice to know that my family and I reside in a town where people are not just numbers.!   No matter what the result of this election, I will remember this warmth of my town of Rive...

Home & Family>>That's What It's All About!  Last month my Mother turned the ripe "young" age of 80.  In preparation of the upcoming event my siblings and I began to plan a Family reunion to commemorate and celebrate the event.  With me being the only local sibling, a sister in Texas, a brother in Oregon and another sister in New York, the planning was to say the least, a challenge.  But through e-mails, instant messaging and of course telephone calls, we pulled together an event that was a true once in a lifetime Family get together. Growing up in the now-popular town of River Vale, NJ didn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary to us back when we were kids.  We lived in what we thought was a humble Cape Cod style home on a quiet street.  In the days when we were kids, there were no ...
