Convent Mews is a great complex located in Morristown NJ close to everything! Seriously, you can walk to Morristown center, the train, hospital, food stores, restaurants and the highways are close too. I closed on a Convent Mews townhome at the end of October. Just to be clear, the townhome was really pretty with an updated kitchen, gorgeous floors and the location within the complex was just perfect.
My client had some changes in mind to make the townhome more her own such as painting various rooms and updating window treatments. The biggest thing my client wanted to change was the fireplace.
I went to a housewarming party there on Sunday and the difference in the fireplace is truly amazing so I'm posting it here. You can all see what can be done to your fireplace to tailor it to your tastes.

There are at least five good reasons to close on a home before the end of the year. In 2013 you can obviously get an advantage with tax deduction benefits. Mortgage rates will most likely increase in 2014 aong with home prices and changing lending rules.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) conducted profiled Home Buyers and Sellers in 2013 and came up with some interesting facts. It looks like the primary reason that sellers try to sell their home to a buyer without the help of a real estate agent is because they do not want to pay the commission. However, the home is not effectively marketed and FSBO (For Sale By Owner) homes sell for much less money the commission would've cost the home seller.
When you're selling your home, you need to consider everything. Pet odors fall into home marketing or staging your home. We all know that pets are great, loyal and love you unconditionally. Keep in mind when selling your home that some home buyers may be allergic to pets. A big reason homebuyers won't purchase a house is odor.
If you're shopping for a home or considering buying a home sometime soon, its important to understand the process of making an offer on a home. Hopefully you'll be working with an experienced Realtor® to guide you every step of the way and negotiate on your behalf to get you the best price possible. Its always a good idea to have a general understanding of what is involved in making an offer and things to consider. Take a look at this article on how to negotiate the best price when buying a home.
