Life After Brooklyn

I made the move from Brooklyn to Maplewood in 2003 and lived to tell! There is “Life After Brooklyn” and it’s easier with parking and not schlepping a stroller up three flights… The Sunday NYT Real Estate cover story states, “But there comes a point when that hourlong commute becomes difficult to justify, and the realization strikes that a house with a yard in Maplewood, N.J., can be had for about the same price as a condo in Midwood.”

2014 Real Estate will ROCK!

Given the low inventory and rising prices in 2013, I predict our local real estate market will ROCK in 2014! And economists from the Federal Reserve agree. “Current inventories of homes for sale are low given more than a year of house price appreciation,” concluded the study Fed by economists William Hedberg and John Krainer released recently. “County-level data suggest that many homeowners are waiting for prices to rise further in their markets. Markets that have seen the strongest house price appreciation and job growth are the ones where for-sale inventories have declined the most.”
