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.

Lafayette Section of Chatham

One of my favorite and most sought after neighborhoods in Chatham is the Lafayette section. Located between Lafayette Avenue, Woodland Road and Shunpike Road, the Lafayette section of Chatham is known for its tree-lined streets, clean-lined homes, and neighborhood-centric homeowners. Growing up on Rose Terrace I got to know the area first hand. The neighborhood was always fun, and loaded with families of every age. I moved into the neighborhood when I was in 6th grade, and remember walking to both the middle school and high school daily with tons of my friends that also lived in the neighborhood, some just a few doors down. Every summer there is a neighborhood block party, where seemingly everyone comes home from the shore for one night to enjoy time with their neighbors. As I got older, I began to really love the neighborhood for the style that can only be called “Chatham Classic”. Every home is slightly unique, yet none stick out like sore thumb. Homes in the neighborhood range between 3-5 bedrooms, and while most of them have been updated over the years, you can still find an original gem to make your own! The home I lived in even had a pool and a double lot —  a hidden treasure in Chatham Boro, which is not known for lots of land or pools.

The Lafayette section is also quite close to downtown Chatham, the train station, and Chatham’s well-rated elementary, middle and high schools. Walking to town at night to grab a quick bit at Gregorios or Mitsuba was always a summer tradition. I can remember packs of businessmen and businesswomen walking from the neighborhood down Lafayette and through the path to the train station every morning around 7am. The walk takes less than 10 minutes. The convenience, ascetic and neighborhood feeling really make the Lafayette section on of the most coveted places to live in Chatham Boro.

In 2014, 19 homes were listed in the Lafayette section. Of the 19 homes listed, only 2 homes remained unsold at the end of the year. Homes in the Lafayette section sold quickly, averaging 30 days on the market and selling at 99.5% of the original listing price. The average list price in 2014 was $920,780, with an average sales price of $916,723. The lowest priced sale was $591,000 and the highest priced sale was $1,700,000. Below is a chart of all the transactions in the Lafayette Section in 2014.
