63 Byrne St in Hackensack is a beautiful home.  I just listed this house at an asking price of $479,00.  We had 49 buyers who came through the 2 weekend open houses I did.  We have come to agreement with 1 and all but 1 of them were over the asking price. The reason I bring this home to your is attention is because it illustrates so clearly how the…

What to expect in real estate is a very hot topic.  Everyone wants to know what will happen in the future.  In addition to how this year will go, there is increasing concern about the future. This is because of many factors.  Primarily it’s the war in Ukraine, mortgage rates and inflation.  Covid for now is not among the biggest concerns although there will be future spikes of course. Let’s…

Godspell, Capri, butterflies , a full moon hike and St Patrick’s Day make this a really busy week.  I don’t know if you went to the Bergen County St Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday.  If you didn’t, you missed maybe the best one ever.  Thousands turned out and the weather did cooperate.  While Sunday was cold, the worst part of the weekend was Saturday. We have a revival of the…

St Patrick will be very pleased.  The Bergen County St Patrick’s Day Parade is back and stronger than ever.  Covid shut it down in 2020 and last year it was virtual.  This year is different because the parade is back starting at 2 pm on Sunday. St Patrick’s Day is one of the most popular celebrations here in Bergen County.  Having this parade back is huge for us and marks…

One of the areas I focus on is senior citizens.  This is because of what I witnessed early in my career.  It affected me tremendously and to this day I…

Should I buy a house now or wait until the market cools?  This question is one that I hear every day.  Prices are sky high.  Interest rates are up 1 percent.  The Fed is beginning it’s tapering program in another week.  Rates will rise further.  There will be an inevitable pull back.  Pricing should come down. All of this is why people ask me “Should I buy a house nor…

School’s out this week for Bergen County children.  It’s winter break and a lot of us take this time to go out into the country for winter sports.  I feel that a huge advantage to Bergen County is how close we are to truly terrific skiing and winter sports.  Windham is only 2.5 hours away in Upstate New York. If you’re not up to the challenge of a Wyndham, about…
