A lot is going on this week in Bergen County.  We have 2 live theater plays, nature center hike, 5K run, Chrishell Stause at Bookends in Ridgewood, Black History at the library and chocolate at The Hermitage. This is also American Heart Month.  Because it is, medical centers like Holy Name, Hackensack, Valley or Englewood have programs on how to maintain a healthy heart.  Now let’s see what we have…

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. While it’s been a rough start, the activity level hasn’t slowed down.  Inventory remains extremely low.  It’s still around 715 homes for sale in all of Bergen County.  That’s less than half…

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 Lunar New Year, James and the Giant Peach plus the return of Maple Sugaring headline this week’s events.  Let’s not forget all the things that are ongoing too.  Go back to my article on winter sports here for outdoor fun as well. Covid has undoubtedly had it’s effect.  Unfortunately public programs that had been held at the Garden State Plaza and Shoppes at Riverside aren’t happening this year.  However…

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…

I thought I should do a data driven real estate market analysis for you.  My previous article, The 2022 Real Estate Market for  Bergen County Homes, was done in a narrative format.  Because of this, I thought those of you who are data driven would appreciate a statistical approach to analyzing the market. Nothing has changed since I wrote my market analysis article on January 6th.  The Senate held confirmation…

Winter sports in Bergen County NJ are alive and well.  Bergen County has a County run ski center and uses its park system for other winter sports as well.  Additionally, we have private facilities too. While I did mention some of this in a previous article recently, I thought it makes sense to put it all together now.  We have a lot to offer during the winter for outdoor fun. …

The 2022 real estate market for Bergen County homes will be unique.  This is because in some ways it’s going to be like 2021 and in others, not at all. This blog has given you a statistical breakdown of the market every January.  It seemed to me, however, that this year required a different approach.  Hopefully this take on the 2022 real estate market for Bergen County homes answers all…
