Westfield Builder Wins Statewide Award I wanted to pass the new brief along because I think it is SO important to recognise professionals succeding in their business. So many of my clients have suffered and thrown money down the drain with unqualfied contractos and builders.  I have not personally worked with Michael Robert Construction but I have seen their work.  I was unaware until I read his article that they also work on Green Projects, which is close to my heart. Kudos to You Michael Robert Construction.  By John Celock | Email the author Michael Robert Construction, a Westfield based home construction company owned by Michael Mroz, won an award and was a finalist for another during the Community Builders and Remodelers Association of New Jersey awards dinnert last month.

   New Jersey Monthly Magazine Names Westfield the best medium-sized town (population 30,000-69,999) in N.J.In addition to grabbing #1 ranking in the population 30,000-69,999 group, Westfield took #12 in the list of the Garden State’s 566 municipalities. “The municipalities that performed best in this year’s rankings were generally the more affluent towns of northern and central New Jersey,” says New Jersey Monthly Editor Ken Schlager. “In difficult economic times, these towns tend to have the resources needed to hold the line on property tax increases, maintain school performance and protect their citizens against crime. This in turn makes the towns more desirable to homebuyers, thus boosting home values.” The 2011 list of New Jersey’s Top 100 Towns was compiled by independent research...

  Let's say we own an egg store, selling hen's eggs, quail eggs, organic eggs and Brontosaurus eggs, ranging in price from a few dollars a dozen to $1 million per egg.   In 2007 we sold a bunch of Brontosaurus eggs and a healthy plethora of the rest.  We hit an historic high for average price, median price, and total unit and dollar volume.   In 2011 we sold a single Brontosaurus egg and a decent plethora of the rest.  Volume was off plain and simple.  What's more complex is calculating the change in value of a gram of egg protein. Because the number of sales at the top of the range was way off, and because the values at the top were off, the mean and median prices of eggs were dramatically down.  But these measures are skewed by the distribution of sales within the price range. So how...

Condo Fact of the day A condominium association is often elected to handle repairs and administrative work related to the common areas. Normally, each unit owner pays fees for common maintenance. The association holds an insurance policy covering the jointly owned areas, while individual owners carry insurance for the interior components of their units.

Did I overhear it at a party, or was it dialogue from a play?  "When the it's the right guy calling, it's always an acceptable time to call."  This is a great analog for the true answer to the oft posed question "is it a good time to put our house on the market?"  If your house is up to speed in staging and updating, and priced lean and mean, it is always good timing.  Yes there are higher volume months and they happen to coincide with the surge of inventory.  So the supply and demand ratio is somewhat constant throughout the year.   The above graphs Westfield NJ inventory and contract levels last year.  The essential truth here is that buyers skim the 15% cream off the inventory every month.  So whatever month you choose to play in, the rules are the same:  Price and prepare your house...

The pace of sales is slightly up, in Westfield NJ, with contracts signed year to date at 158, up 6% over last year's 149.  But the supply at the end of the school year is at 192, up 9.7% from last year's 175.  (In 2006, the year the glut preceded the slump in values, the inventory peaked at 205.) What are the prospects for these 192 homeowners at this point in the market cycle?  We sense a slight deflation in buyer energy and a slight souring of the psychology, courtesy of media and the swooning stock market, which has huge influence in our part of the world. My guess is half the remainder will sell, and half will withdraw in hope of a better year in 2012.  Unfortunately that line of thinking has been very costly to homeowners since 2006.
