Get ready because inventory is coming but so are more buyers.  We’re having a rough weather start to the 2022 real estate market in Bergen County homes.  We’ve had freezing temperatures, a major snow storm and icy conditions.

113 Clinton St in Emerson is for rent at $2,450 per month.  I just listed this very cute 2 bedroom home in the New Jersey MLS.  It’s not easy to find a small house for rent in Bergen County. Bergen County homes are mostly 3 bedrooms.  House rentals usually begin around $3,00 per month for an average 3 bedroom home.  As a result, this 2 bedroom home is a special…

The Bergen County Cooperative Library System, BCCLS, is amazing. It’s also important for many reasons.  Let’s take this week for example.  There really is no new event to report.  While there are ongoing activities, nothing new at all for this week.  This is not the case with our wonderful library system. Because it’s a cooperating system with 77 member libraries, you have unlimited opportunities for everything.  It doesn’t matter what…

The covid effect on real estate this January is slowing things down.  While this is bad news for home buyers, it’s an exceptional opportunity for homeowners. We are bombarded with Omicron news every day.  Covid is everywhere.  Hospitals have record number of admissions.  Omicron is so contagious that you must have a 95 level mask and pray you don’t get it.  Numbers are rising.  You can’t find enough workers because…

The 2022 theater season begins this weekend.  Local live theater is very important in Bergen County.  We have several theater groups and even some great children’s theater groups too. Bergen County is filled with people from the music industry and arts.  This is because we are so close to Manhattan, one of the world’s major cultural centers.  Many people come to Bergen County just because of this alone. Let’s see…
