Ways To Find Out What Your Home Is Really Worth

What don't the computer models that determine home values tell you?  Well, lots and lots of things. There are so many reasons that these models are flawed . . . many obvious, many not so obvious.

If you used one of the online services to determine the value of your home, our advice is definitely don't use that information to set your selling price. These models may be wildly inaccurate, and often are.

A computer program can't physically inspect your home. It doesn't know whether unique features of your property might add to or detract from market value. It can't account for a sewage treatment facility next door, or the railroad tracks nearby with trains that blow their whistles all night. It also doesn't know that you recently added high-end finishes in your kitchens and baths and invested money in staging your property with the colors and furnishings that today's buyers are looking for.

The new look will allow us to shine anew, and cultivate existing relationships while building new ones with homebuyers and sellers in the Marlboro area.

How To Make Your Offer Strong And Beat Out Competing Home Buyers

Housing inventory in Central New Jersey, and Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties remains low, making our local residential real estate market a seller’s market. Well-priced homes in desirable locations are selling quickly, and in many instances, receiving multiple offers.
