Cold Temperatures, Snow, and Lots of Folks Shopping for a Home in Pascack Valley!Today I had the pleasure of hosting an Open House at 641 Debchar Court in River Vale, a new listing I have the opportunity to offer to the public.  The weather was less than opportune..the streets were snow covered, and the temperatures were indeed quite frigid!  I was anticipating getting lots of work done on my palm, since I was sure the weather would keep the buyers at home.Much to my surprise, we had 6 groups of visitors in a two hour period of time, on this snowy and chilly Sunday afternoon in December.  Surely, the visitors decided that visiting an Open House took priority over Holiday Shopping!  Let me remind our "Realtor Friendly" newspapers that we have buyers out there, visiting inspite of poor we...

                                                     Sunday Open Houses in the Pascack ValleyIn what has been perceived by many as a down market, I held an Open House on one of my listings.  I decided to try an experiment, and not put out any Open House signs, except for the sign directly in front of the home.  In fact, the homeowner realized this after having left the home, and called me to ask if I had forgotten to place any signs.  I responded by telling her that I wanted to see how many buyers would come from my internet ads and ads in the local newspapers.Interestlngly, we had 10 groups of visitors to my open house, quite an excellent number for what is perceived as a slow market.  We definitely had interest from some potential buyers, and I was pleasantly surprised by the response...

River Vale, New Jersey in the Pascack Valley - So what's all the fuss about?  Recently Money Magazine named one of our Pascack Valley towns on a list of top 100 places to live in America.  Ranked number 29 on this year's list was my very own hometown of River Vale.  The article uses criteria such as economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a sense of community.  In addition to these points is proximity to everything one can hope for in a quiet Suburban setting.   Of course this was no great surprise to me since I experienced it first hand.  As a girl growing up in River Vale, New Jersey back in the 60's I was too young to know anything special about the small town.  Attending the Roberge Grammar School on the South side of town was pretty uneventful to me but t...
