Phillipsburg NJ 08865 Updates on Homes for Sale, June 2011 - Warren County Market Reports   My Phillipsburg NJ 08865 Market Report on homes for sale is based on GSMLS data as of June 15, 2011.

I then had trouble deciding which ones to use to market this 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom single family home listed at just $160,000 $150,000 $145,000.   Built about 1900, owners throughout the years left the woodwork its natural color.  More recent enhancements - updated eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, 1st floor powder room - have not diminished the charm of this Colonial home for sale in Phillipsburg NJ. ...

Potentially Fast Short Sale: 3 - 4 bedrooms, Colonial homes, 461 Thomas Street Phillipsburg NJ 08865   First lien holder is already “on board” and promises me a response within 48 hours for the contract on this Pursel Hill Colonial home for sale. In what looks to be great condition, this 3 bedroom, 1 ½ bathroom single family residence has been updated. Cabinets in the eat-in kitchen are just lovely; it has a dishwasher. Attic makes a great 4th bedroom, play or media room. Full basement could be nicely finished; washer and dryer remain but with no guarantees any appliances work. Front and back porches add grace. Shed and parking pad at the back of the property.   PRICE REDUCED by $20,000 on April 19 $5,000 on April 6, 2011!   Update: Some of the radiators are cracked, suggesting freezing...

Phillipsburg NJ 08865 Updates on Homes for Sale, March 2011 - Warren County Market Reports   My Phillipsburg NJ Market Report on homes for sale is based on GSMLS data as of March 6, 2011.  Although neither of these graphs show a huge surge in real estate activity, my magic ball predicts huge changes during this month. Too, a snapshot of sales data doesn't give you all the information that a great real estate agent has about market activity.   I and my colleagues are showing potential buyers many places that are really well priced; my bet is that quite of few of them will go Under Contract soon.  Really low interest rates and upcoming FHA changes mean savvy buyers are locking in the right Phillipsburg 08865 homes for sale NOW.   Personally, I'll be listing 2 more Phillipsburg NJ homes fo...

Professional Real Estate Service & an Emotional Ending – 7 Lawrence Trail, Washington NJ 07865 SOLD!   After a long and very difficult haul, my buyer closed on this foreclosure home for sale at 7 Lawrence Trail in Washington Township. Recorded sale price was just $82,000.   The first time I had taken Steve to see it, the furnace was operational but his offer was not the one selected by the bank. What a blow! Listed by a great agent in my office, Jason Freeby, he and my manager, Carrie Perrucci, were great help in assuring Steve our entire team was behind him 100% and determined to help him get the right home at the right price.   When 7 Lawrence Trail was dewinterized so those 1st purchasers could do a home inspection, the water heater blew and the basement flooded. Good bye, water heat...

Phillipsburg NJ 08865 Updates on Homes for Sale, January 2011 - Warren County Market Reports   The GSMLS just released December statistics today, so I'm a touch late getting you my Phillipsburg NJ market report.  As of today, only 125 homes are actively listed for sale. Many expired as of January 1 but quite a few of these may be relisted this month - I know I'm speaking with several homeowners about getting their house back on the market so I can blog about them!   Of the 6 homes that sold in December, 4 were Colonials, 1 was a ranch, 1 a Cape Cod.  All had 3 or 4 bedrooms.  Given buyers' clear preferences, I'm thrilled to have a 2 bedroom Colonial home for sale at 170 Filmore Street, Phillipsburg NJ 08865, asking just $82,000!   Of the 3 Phillipsburg NJ homes that went Under Contract ...

Phillipsburg NJ 08865 Updates on Homes for Sale, November 2010 - Warren County Market Reports     Buyers seeking fixer-uppers and foreclosure homes for sale snapped up a couple Phillipsburg NJ Colonials in October!  The 3 bedroom my office listed and sold for just $33,309 went for more than its list price of $30,500 with only 23 days on the market. Admittedly, it had no kitchen and no bathroom.  Another 4 bedroom, 2 bath Colonial HUD foreclosure home for sale went for just $32,750 after 6 months on the market; mold was one of its issues.     Distressed properties aren't every buyer's cup of tea but 3 of 5 were fixer-uppers - 60% of Phillipsburg's October sales. These might not be every buyer's cup of team but many new owners are taking advantage of a renovation mortgage loan. Learn abou...

Tractor Pull and Hot Air Balloons - Peaceful Coexistence at the Warren County NJ Farmers' Fair After months of looking forward to the Warren County NJ Farmers' Fair & Hot Air Balloon Festival, Aug. 1 - 7, 2010 Chip and I joined the other happy attendees on Wednesday, August 4.  What a great outing! Neither of us had ever been to a tractor pulling contest, although Chip knew that the tractors competed to pull a weighted sled.  Frankly, I had never even stopped to consider that tractors came in different strengths and sizes. Heehaw, I also learned that evening what a grange is and supported one by purchasing our dinner at its booth.  We took our feast to the grandstand in time for the presenting of the US flag by the Rolling Thunder, a beautiful a capella version of our National Anthem an...

Foreclosures after a BANKRUPTCY? A Deed-in-Lieu might be the way to go - although I am not a lawyer and never give legal advice!   True story from Phillipsburg NJ. Although I've listed and sold many NJ REO homes for sale, this is my first time with this particular situation.  I'm working with a mortgage servicer that I'll call "the bank." It is trying to find the owners of a vacant home. Those owners completed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and the mortgage debt has been eliminated.  A foreclosure, however, may well be in the works on this property.   Here the folks think they have legally and responsibly taken care of their obligations. Still one more hurdle outstanding, however. The bank does not yet own the home so cannot list it for sale.  It is hoping to discuss a post-bankruptcy deed-in-l...
