This BEAUTIFUL building is the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts at Main Street and Green Village Road in Madison NJ.  This historic building is one of the oldest buildings in town  and maybe in the area for that matter.  Its also somewhat of a landmark for the area.  As you can see even from this small picture, the architecture is amazing.There is an interesting exhibit coming up on March 4th.  Learn how people in the 18th and 19th centuries cured their ailments.  The exhibit will talk about various medicines, instruments and practices used during  that era.  The exhibit will feature letters and diaries written by people talking about their ailments and different remedies that were tried as cures. They'll also have medicine cabinets and medical tools on display.  I think it will be pr...

What Should You Do When Your House Does Not Sell?The longer your home sites on the market, the less likely you are to get a price that you are going to like.  Avoid waiting to long to make a decision.Listen To A Professional Realtors Feedback Ask your real estate professional to poll his or her colleagues who have shown your home.  If location is the problem, you may not have any choice but to reduce your price.  But if your home's appearance is the issue, deal with what seems to be holding buyers back, such as cleaning up the basement or painting the inside.Reduce Your Homes PriceThis is the most obvious decision.  If the real estate market has slowed since you listed your home six weeks ago, the comparable recent home sales you used to set your listing price may be out of date.  Consi...

Madison New Jersey Home Sales for the month of October 2007.October was another slower than normal month for home sales in Madison NJ.  Much of this is attributed to the credit crunch which we began to experience in August and has been continuing so far into November of 2007.  We have been seeing some easing in the crunch as of late and there is every sign that it will continue to ease for the foreseeable future.Madison NJ is one of the more desireable towns for home buyers because of the convenient train service and the historic downtown.Address List Price  StyleBedsBathsGARBSMT Sold Price  DOM14 Kensington Road $469,000.00  CapeCod411N $420,000.00  126263 KINGS RD $485,000.00  Colonial311Y $415,000.00  313 MADISON AVE $550,000.00  Colonial420Y $517,500.00  68175 GREENWOOD AVE $619,000...

An Independent Press Survey showed that local communities are putting more priority towards environmental issues.  But some towns are doing more than others.  Tune in all week to see how your town compares.Today's community:  Madison, NJAt the Hartley Dodge Memorial renovation, the old A/C system will be replaced by an environmentally friendly one.  This new unit will re-circulate the cooling water thus making it more energy and cost efficient.  At the Police and Fire Headquarters, construction plans included coated, tinted glass in all of the exterior windows to cut down on the heat build-up in the building.  In the rest of the borough's buildings, efforts have been made to use fluorescent light bulbs.The traffic lights have already been replaced with more energy efficient LED lights. ...

There is an infomercial ( CALL NOW) with teleseminars  AND VIDEOS on how callers can set up ten businesses onthe internet and make tons of bucks online with websites. It is complete with spokesactresses on the commercial . It has a disclaimer it says a UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, Individual results willl vary. I discovered this when I turned on the tv late last night and it was running on WOR Channel 9 NYC channel.  The  reason I started watching is they had two actresses saying how they didn't understand how email works, and they didn't want to learn, they just wanted to send a message to a friend and press a button. I thought this was pretty funny, and  TRUE for a lot of people. Isn't that what texting is for?  LOL. I guess the writers of the informercial left that one out.  Can someone send t...
