Phillipsburg NJ Data on Homes for Sale, July 2010 - Warren County Market Reports   The first time buyer tax credit had a more significant impact within Phillipsburg than it did in many of the neighboring Warren County NJ towns.  With a wealth of options under $150,000 the uptick in Phillipsburg closings on homes for sale isn't a huge surprise. I know of some that didn't meet the June 30 deadline but the extended closing date means those 1st-timers are still in luck for the credit!   My Phillipsburg Real Estate Market Report is based on data recorded in GSMLS as of July 12, 2010. Statistics on homes for sale will change based on when numbers are run, accounting for variances with my previous trend snapshots indexed at Market Data on Homes for Sale in Warren County NJ.

Thomas the Train - A fun but NOT Fabulous Northwestern NJ Family Outing from Phillipsburg, July 9  I am certain that the heat on Friday beat the rain on Saturday but I'm sure glad we had the earliest ride possible on Thomas the Train from Phillipsburg in Northwestern NJ. Frankly, the ultra-noisy toy train whistles were the best part and I would not recommend the outing to anyone other than die-hard Thomas fans!  The engineer caps were adorable but it was just too hot for them. We three always have fun but this event wasn't our favorite... Thomas the Train - Northwestern NJ Family Outing from Phillipsburg - early July 2010 When the 11 a.m. Steam Train heading to the mines pulled into the station, we were sorry not to be getting on that.  It was much more impressive than Thomas - even for...

Thomas the Train - Northwestern NJ Family Outing from Phillipsburg - early July 2010 I have loved trains all my life, so was thrilled to learn about the New York Susquehanna & Western Technical & Historical Society Inc. & partners Delaware River Railroad Excursions based out of Phillipsburg. Envisioning a steam train ride to the Susquehanna Mining Company, I went to the website to get details to surprise my hubby Chip with an outing. But I was derailed!!! Thomas the Train is making an appearance in Northwestern NJ July 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 - some of the time slots are already sold out. Running from Phillipsburg, this is easy access for anyone in the Route 78 corridor - Warren or Hunterdon County. As family candidates for "best Aunt" are many, I was immediately on the phone to try to fi...

RainChecks - Irene Kennedy RainDances up a Storm thanks to Hyper-Local Posts! Little did I know a year ago that some posts I did on vacation properties for sale would result in LOTS of business. I focused on the hyper-local areas. Listed a NJ hotel-condo. The values kept dropping, so it eventually became a short sale. First blogged about it August 2009: Short Sale - Minerals Resort Hotel and Spa - Vernon Vacation or Ski Condo - Income-Producing Sussex County NJ real estate for sale.   The strange thing is that the series brought me business from distant lands. Well, Brooklyn NY in this particular case. That series, however, resulted in many calls and emails from far outside my geographic area - and many RainChecks! Never, never would I have reached those "Blog Buyers" with standard mark...

Phillipsburg NJ Data on Homes for Sale, June 2010 - Warren County Market Reports    My Phillipsburg Real Estate Market Report is based on data recorded in GSMLS as of June 2, 2010. Statistics can change as a deal falls apart or late recordings take place - each month I update previous data as appropriate. All my market trend reports are indexed at Market Data on Homes for Sale in Warren County NJ.   The "spring market" listing a home for sale spiked in April in Phillipsburg, much more so than in neighboring Pohatcong, Lopatcong, Stewartsville and Greenwich. As anticipated with the April 30 end of the tax credit, many more homes went Under Contract then they did in May. We'll see a bunch of closing this month due to the tax credit deadline for completion.    How are prices on Phillipsurg...

The Owl's Nest - 97 Route 519, Phillipsburg. Hunting, Fishing, Archery Supplies and FRIENDSHIP. Warren County NJ. Phone is 908-995-7903.   Had you told me a month ago that a place that outfits hunters, anglers and bowmen would be my first "great find" in Warren County NJ, I wouldn't have believed you.  Pohatcong Creek runs through my front yard and is stocked with trout. I asked some of the fishermen a few questions and they all told me to "go 'round the corner" to The Owl's Nest. There I could learn, obtain permits and get whatever I needed.  I've had less than pleasant experiences in some sporting good places when I've gone to purchase gifts for family members. Decided to make hubby Chip meet me at The Owl's Nest in Phillipsburg because I am a woman; I barely know which end of a rod ...

On my round about way into the office for floor time this morning I drove by the Community Day and Car Show in Frenchtown, NJ.  I wish I could go.My route also took me past the Tinicum Park where Saturday Polo Matches are played.  I wish I could go.A friend was telling me they were going to the Bethlehem Musikfest this evening.  I had showings.  I wish I could go.On my way to my showings, I pass the sign for the Festival of Ballooning at the Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ.  I wish I could go.  Patience My Dear, Patience!  The festival came to me!  On our last home of the night, the balloons came to us, soaring through the sky just south of where we were in Phillipsburg, NJ.  We stayed around watching and taking photos for a while, then I went around town and took some more.  Enjoy!
