Wondering Who the #1 Agent in the GSMLS was for 2014?……

DRUMROLL…

For the second year in a row, The Sue Adler Team takes top billing on the Garden State Multiple Listing Service’s (GSMLS) newly released year-end 2014 statistics. Out of the 16,873 GMSLS agents, Sue leads the charge as #1 in production with her numbers clearly exceeding even her top competitors. At $113 million in volume — they were approximately $10,000,000 higher than their next competitor and over $30,000,000 above #3 on the list.

Sue’s team successfully helped 117 clients to buy or sell in the NJ Midtown Direct market and its surrounding communities such as Millburn, Short Hills, Summit, Chatham, Madison, Maplewood, South Orange, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Westfield and Livingston.

“Making the top spot is no easy feat,” according to Howard Bunn, Sue’s broker at Keller Williams, “but successfully attaining the #1 spot for the second year in a row proves that Sue’s team holds the right ingredients for success. Of all your 49 listing sales in 2014, you averaged 99.3% sale to original list price ratio. Sue’s team knows the market and the art of pricing your property.”

Sue’s methodology is foolproof. She knows that every home is distinctive and has its own unique target. Through her incredible marketing intuition and savvy business acumen, Sue has built strong buyer networks locally, nationally, and internationally.  Her personalized marketing, pricing and timing strategy creates such interest that her listings sell on average 29 days on the market, and for top dollar.

Sue’s team is dynamic and cohesive with a wealth of real estate knowledge. From the team’s transaction manager who successfully negotiated each inspection to her client care professionals who personally connect the right buyers to sellers, this team has their pulse on the market and the numbers prove it.

And who says it better than our clients….

When Sue Adler says that hers is a “team” effort, that’s the real truth

When Sue Adler says that hers is a “team” effort, that’s the real truth, and one of the major strengths of selecting her as your agent. Her husband, Peter Jacoby, took what are by far the best photographs of our former home, a rather unique Mid-Century Modern ranch in Mendham, NJ. It’s an unusual 10,000+ square foot space, and Peter captured the expansive Great Room and its architectural details, the oversize Master Bedroom, and all the other rooms and 7 acres of grounds with a skill and creativity that brought in more interested visitors that any previous realtor. They were also open to using our own photographs of the house in different seasons and times of day which, especially for the outside pool, offered a more comprehensive look at the property. Then, with a sale pending, Dawn Preziosi – handling closing logistics – was always responsive, returning calls within hours if not answering immediately, and offering advice to address all the many items that need addressing when a home has wells, a septic system and the Twp has lots of permitting and CO requirements. Sue herself suggested staging our basement, which we’d been using as a home office, and making it feel more livable. That also worked, but – of course – her professional advice as to setting the right price at the right time of year was critical. Lastly we feel her team’s special expertise at servicing the “MidTown Direct” communities of Short Hills, Summit, etc., brought in a larger and broader set of potential Buyers than any previous realtor. For all those reasons, we’re happy to recommend the Adler Team, and hope your experiences are as happy and successful as ours. ~ Geoff and Erna, Mendham Home Sellers

Sue and her team are hands-down the most professional and responsive team

Sue and her team are hands-down the most professional and responsive team we could have working for us when we sold our house. Sue is a marketing genius–she attends to every detail and has mastered the digital forms of communication that many buyers rely on. Photos were beautiful, brochure was spectacular and the negotiations were handled most effectively. We felt like we hired the best! ~Eseng and Suzanne Lai, Short Hills Home Sellers

Your team approach to Real Estate is genius!

Your team approach to Real Estate is genius! We knew going in our realtor Laurie is a dedicated, conscientious person and we soon found she is in like company at the Sue Adler team. We appreciate so much the efforts of all of you but in particular those of Laurie and Vicky! These women were always pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The ability to have Vicki and Laurie both show us houses greatly maximized the number of visits we could see on our time schedule, which was so appreciated. ~LuAnn Nigara, Florham Park Home Sellers

We will definitely tell our family and friends to contact the Sue Adler Team if they want to buy or sell a house

Dear Sue,

We would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work with the house closing. We are so happy that we found your contact a year ago when we were looking for our first house in Millburn NJ.

We did find our dream home in Millburn, and we welcomed home our daughter from the hospital in this house, however from circumstances of job relocation we had to leave, but at the end of the day because of all of you we were able to sell the house with no glitches and stress, you all made it happen!

We would like to especially give a special thanks to Dawn and Kaitlin, for taking care of the inspection, close and all the house details on behalf of us.

We will definitely tell our family and friends to contact the Sue Adler Team if they want to buy or sell a house. Good Luck to All. ~Venkataraman Family, Millburn Home Sellers

Our home sold so quickly we had no time to be anxious

Our home sold so quickly we had no time to be anxious. The “team” is dynamic, professional and most important of all really nice people. No pretense, no surprises just great support and great results.Would we recommend Sue Adler to you? Positively YES! ~Stephen and Jo Ann Pine, Livingston Home Sellers

 

 

 

 

FHA mortgage insurance premium has dropped significantly!

FHA mortgage insurance premium has dropped significantly!

Effective January 26th, FHA has lowered the monthly mortgage insurance premium by 50 basis points on mortgage terms greater than 15 years.

What does this mean to you?

FHA mortgages are attractive to buyers because they allow a minimum investment of 3.5% of the purchase price. This low down payment is particularly helpful to first time homebuyers.

The mortgage insurance premium is a monthly expense associated with your mortgage. The reduction in this monthly payment over the life of your loan will save you money, and assist you in qualifying.

With only a 3.5% down payment required, this new 50 basis point reduction translates to a monthly savings to you of $123 for a $300,000 mortgage.

This is tremendously beneficial to borrowers for qualification purposes as the mortgage industry requires certain debt-to-income ratios when qualifying buyers for a mortgage.

So if you are one of the many who do not have 20% of the purchase price to put down on the home of your dreams, this reduction in the monthly mortgage insurance premium may be just the extra help you need to achieve home ownership now.

If you are interested in learning about how this effects your ability to buy a home in Chatham, Madison, Summit, Short Hills, Livingston, Maplewood, South Orange, New Providence, Berkeley Heights or any other town, give us a call at 973-936-9129 and we will point you in the right direction.

Rate Update From Cathy Haddad and Atlantic Home Loans

We just received this note from Cathy Haddad, a mortgage broker with Atlantic Home Loans.

The 10-year bond dropped below 2% this week as a result of poor economic data from
Europe, China and the US. Additionally, and almost hard to believe, the world financial
markets are rattled by the potential economic implications of a spreading Ebola virus.
Crazy that Ebola is actually affecting bond and mortgage rates! Let me share with you
the way I see it: While the economic data clearly doesn’t present a rosy picture, most
of that economic risk (and downward interest rate pressure) is now built into bond and
mortgage rates. This means that we are unlikely to see rates drop further in the near
term based purely on economic data.
 

Rates

 
 
 
What’s my message? Take advantage of recently released economic data and ‘‘the
world is ending” hysteria and lock in your mortgage rate now. While rates have been
low for quite some time, this recent cratering of mortgage rates is providing you with
what may be one last opportunity to refinance your mortgage. My message is the same
to those looking to buy a home: find a home and lock in what may be the lowest rates
you’ll ever see. NOW is the time :)
