New year. New home? If you plan on selling your Westfield area home in 2022, you should start focusing on the tasks required to make it happen. The sooner you create a plan of attack, the easier selling your home becomes in the new year.Selling Your Home in 2022Set a Target DateMarch through May tend to be the best times to list your home on the Westfield market. That is when more buyers go out looking for a new home. Why? Nice weather makes it easier to navigate their way to a showing. Plus, this allows families time to close and move during the summer, when school closes. Once you set your target listing date, create your list of tasks that must be completed beforehand. Then, set deadlines for which each task must be finished.Interview REALTORS®Next, you need to find a REALTOR®. You n...

 Happy New Year! Housing prices continue to climb:  CoreLogic Home Price Index was up 1.3% in November and 18% year over year, the highest reading in the 45yr history of the index. While the pace of appreciation in 2022 is not expected to stay at these levels most forecasts show prices will continue to climb. CoreLogic only forecasts a 2.5% gain in 2022 but this time last year they forecast 2.5% as well. For 2022: Goldman forecast 16% gains, Zillow 14%, Fannie 7.5%.  I do believe that the higher two are not that realistic and we are more likely to see a more realistic number like Fannie’s.  Put into perspective, someone buying a $400,000 home today with 8% appreciation will see a $32,000 gain in equity this year. I do believe we will see at least 5% this year before we settle back down ...

Most people busy themselves with last-minute Christmas shopping and getting ready for New Year's Eve parties right now. However, some are thinking about buying a new Westfield area home. These homebuyers include Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964). Buying a home in your 60s or 70s may seem even more overwhelming than usual with retirement knocking on your door. If you are a senior home buyer, let me offer you a few tips to help make this transition a little easier.Tips for the Senior Home BuyerPut Future Needs at Top of ListRight now, navigating stairs and cleaning up a large home may still seem manageable. But down the road, you might find it much less so. The National Association of REALTORS® 2021 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report found that Boomer buyers planne...

1. Less CompetitionIt’s true that fewer people tend to list their homes during the winter months, but this means that your home has a better chance of standing out, as there will be fewer competing listings. Wouldn’t you rather be the only home for sale in your neighborhood, than have three of your neighbors also selling at the same time?2. Motivated BuyersIt takes a little more motivation to bundle up and go look at houses when the weather gets cold. The holidays keep people busy, and many people are traveling or entertaining guests. Not to mention that packing and moving in the cold is not much fun. But these small hurdles to house-shopping just mean that you will likely avoid wasting time with buyers who aren’t serious and ready to make an offer. The curious neighbors or “we’d like t...

Christmas Eve takes place exactly one week from tonight. Meanwhile, the holiday spirit fills the air. For instance, Scotch Plains put their tree on display in Alan Augustine Village Green. Westfield and Fanwood's official trees are set up at their respective North Ave train stations. And you absolutely must see the Fanwood Christmas House. But after the celebration dies down and your guests go home, you are left with the clean-up. That includes your Christmas tree. Unfortunately, these trees cannot be disposed of with your weekly trash collection. What do you do? Contact our local high school band and schedule a Westfield Christmas tree pick-up after the holidays.What: Christmas Tree Pick-up in WestfieldWhere: Curbside Outside Your HomeWhen: Saturday, January 9thCost: $20 per treeDeadli...

The Christmas holiday season is in full swing in the Westfield area. For most of us, this means spending time with family and exchanging gifts with those we love. Unfortunately, some people dread the holidays. Either they spend it alone or they struggle to pay their bills and put food on the table already. This time of year puts extra pressure on them to make it special for their children. You can help by donating to the Westfield Toy Drive.Westfield Toy Drive 2021Two Downtown Westfield companies (Allstate Insurance at 502 E. Broad St. and Kinderprep at 80 South Ave. W) partnered up with Springfield charity Furniture Assist to host a Westfield Toy Drive this year.

On Sunday, December 5th, the Borough of Fanwood lights its Christmas tree. Santa even promises to make a stop beforehand. But, on Saturday, December 4th, he puts in a quick trip to the Fanwood Christmas House. He would love to see you there.Fanwood Christmas House 2021Yes, the Christmas House is back! While the house lit up for the season on the day after Thanksgiving, Santa could not make it until this weekend. And he promises presents for good little boys and girls who visit him between 4:30 pm and 7 pm. The Fanwood Policeman's Benevolent Association donated refreshments for the event as well. But if you miss the festivities tomorrow, you can still enjoy the light show through the end of the year.Lights for a CauseWhile homeowner Greg Roser loves entertaining the community, the motive...
