March Millburn and Short Hills Real Estate Statistics 2019


Spring Market has Sprung as the cherry blossoms on our area's trees enlighten us with the blooms. These are the results, as you can see above:

In Millburn, We had homes sell for as much as 6% over asking and a little as 96% of asking, giving us an average of 98.7% of asking. There were 17 homes placed Under Contract as compared to a total of 25 homes listed as Active. These stats show us that the Millburn market is still quite healthy.

In Short Hills, we had homes sell for as much as 5% over asking to as little as 80% of asking. There are a significant amount of homes on the market,--ringing in at 132 properties for sale--with only 55 more properties Under Contract. Clearly, we are seeing some increasing challenges with an overall average of homes selling for 93.6% of asking for the Luxury Market homes over $1M.

If you have any questions as to how much your home is worth, please feel free to call us at 917-797-5059.


We have either closed or have accepted offers ranging from asking to as much as 10% over asking on our recently listed properties. Want to know what our "special sauce" is for achieving these results? Give us a call at 917-797-5059.

Looking to move in the immediate area? Well we can be of extra special help with our new Moving Truck.

Maplewood and South Orange March Real Estate Round Up!


Spring Market has Sprung and the results have been as pretty to look at as the cherry blossoms on our area's trees. We had homes sell for as much as 10-11% over asking, with Maplewood averaging just over 100% over asking and South Orange coming in at 99.5% of asking for March. Both towns currently have more properties Under Contract than they do active listings, which I refer to as a Hyper Market, showing that buyer activity is weighing in more heavily than what the market has to offer.


We have either closed or have accepted offers ranging from asking to as much as 10% over asking on our recently listed properties. Want to know what our "special sauce" is for achieving these results? Give us a call at 917-797-5059.

A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets.
Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up.
The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating.
Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.

West Orange March 2019 Real Estate Roundup




West Orange continues to be a hot market for real estate, increasingly so for March, as buyers paid a touch over asking. I love to see the Under Contract to Actives ratio as high as it is--meaning a good number of homes listed for sale are being bought by buyers--in March this ration hit a season's high of 77.3%.

Looking to sell your West Orange home? We are proud to say we have sold all four of our listings in West Orange for over asking, with our highest being 22 Club, which we sold for 10% over asking. Want to know our "special sauce" to getting our clients' properties sold for more than asking, then give us a call at 917-797-5059.

and where we use Quick-Links to make it easiest for our clients to Sell and/or buyer their homes.
