   vsAs an agent with the David Realty Group of Westfield NJ, I met someone who owns a home in Westfield NJ today who had their home on the market in the past but it did not sell. She engaged in this conversation with me once she found out I was a realtor with David Realty Group who sells Westfield Homes. The woman kept referring to how her home was underpriced when it was on the market next to all of the other homes in Westfield on her street. But none of the homes on her street has sold in recent years so where was she getting her information? Zillow. I then shared with her that Zillow did not have feet, and had never been in any home nor did Zillow have a brain b/c Zillow was not a person. I asked if her past agent had shared comparables with her and she said, “yes, that too”. But it...

Our Inventory is up to 153, or 1.4% of our 11,000 homes in town.  In the last 30 days we have seen 39 properties go under contract.  That makes a hot absorption rate of 3.92%. It's a great time to be a seller in Westfield, whether you are listed for $299K up to  $1,445,000.  If you get the price and presentation right, you can hope for a quick sale near or above asking price. Here are the sales

For an idea of how deceptive average and median numbers can be in indicating home values: here's a true story: Town wide Westfield sales average prices show 2011 finishing 13% below 2007. (2006 was the same) My landscaper made his debut and only foray into new home construction in 2007.  He sold the house for $999K. He was later called back to finish the basement (I assign a market value of $40K, now matter how much is spent down there). The owner is a professional decorator with fantastic taste who made every room in the house look bigger and shaplier than they were when the house was born.  Maybe the lights and window treatments (which an appriaser will ignore) are worth $20K??? So if median meant everyone, and if you naively considered improvements recoupable at 100%. . . you'd say 9...

    As an agent with David Realty Group, I recently listed a house in Westfield NJ. The activity on this home has been phenomenal. As of today, I have 5 realtors that have contacted me within the last three days that have clients with serious interest. We have had over 30 showings. The home is priced right. Why so much activity?  Simple, we've managed to make it to February without a real winter snow storm. But what we are having as a result of this is a real estate storm. With the warmest winter I can ever remember having, the lowest interest rates I have ever seen and some of the lowest home prices Westfield homes have seen in decades, we have a Perfect Storm! This is a tremedous opportunity! So many people know folks who were severly harmed in the run up of the market that it has cau...

The beginning of 2012 has been very bullish, with sales almost as frequent as houses coming into market and keeping inventory lean.  Click Pictures for More Images if Available

As an agent with David Realty Group in Westfield, NJ, I have ironically been working with 3 buyers this week who perpetually lowball every offer. Family #1 - are searching for Westfield homes - Upon walking into a house today that we were visiting for the first time at 670K, they said what should we bid -  600K? I told them I'd have to see it first and after seeing it, I would need to run the comparables. Regardless of how much time I've spent educating each buyer on how the real estate market "works", they continue to bid lowball offers. I would imagine that at some point, 2 of the 3 families will realize that we continually lose our bids and they are still without a home and that perhaps the method I am suggesting is the correct one. The 3rd family  - are searching for Springfield ho...

  Original Price: $1.3 Million / Sold at $695,000There's a great saying in the real estate business. To succeed in life, you want to be:The First ChildThe Second SpouseThe Third RealtorAnd like with most sayings, there is some truth in that statement, as agents who pick up listings after sellers have made major mistakes will attest.But We Want More MoneyWhen the average seller sits down to interview real estate agents, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement over choosing a sales price. More money means more financial opportunities for the homeowner. Perhaps it means the seller can afford to buy a more expensive home, help pay for her child's college education or take that greatly overdue vacation. Unfortunately, uninformed sellers often choose the listing agent who suggests the hi...

On January 22, the Sound Station in Westfield was destroyed in a fire. Owners Bob Larsen and Liz Walsh sold rare music finds and albums by local artists as well as hosting live shows. Rumor has it that the couple will open their doors again in a new spot in Westfield but renovations are expensive. The community is hosting a life benefit on Friday, February 3rd. Supporters of the Sound Station have coordinated a concert called  “Backpack Superheroes present Sound Station Benefit Show” to be held at the Stanley Cup Bar & Grill, 1410 East Elizabeth Ave. in Linden starting at 9 pm. Ten bands will perform until 3 am. Admission is $5 at the door but additional donations are encouraged. Another benefit concert will be held on April 21st at  The Crossroads in Garwood, NJ.
