Removing an underground oil tank is something that a lot of you will be involved in.  That’s because so many homes were heated with oil until the last quarter of the 20th century. A Brief Historical Review Oil was a primary fuel to heat your home from the 1930’s through the 1960’s.  A war between the Arab States and Israel changed this.

Posted by & filed under For Sale or Rent, Selling.

Helping a senior move involves much more than it does, for example, a young family, relocating executive, 1st time home buyer or a move up buyer needing a larger home.  Senior homeowners have a special set of circumstances and needs. 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…

Posted by & filed under Buying, For Sale or Rent, Selling.

Do you know what’s the hottest part of the market?  This seems like an obvious answer because almost everyone will say single family homes.  While single family homes dominate the residential market, they’re hot but not the hottest part of the real estate market.

Data Driven Real Estate Market Analysis

Posted by & filed under Buying, For Sale or Rent, Selling.

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…
