The ceremonies will be attended by New Jersey Transit representatives, state and local official as well as Morristown's Mayor Donald Cresitello.  The location at 50 Lafayette Avenue was previously a commuter parking lot for the Morristown Train Station.  The plan is to build a new luxury rental building and a development used for a variety of purposes - retail and amenities.As quoted in the local Morristown Newspaper - Morris NewsBee on Friday, March 14, 2008 - The state's Transit Village Program, which encourages development at and around major train centers, the new five-story elevator building will house 217 upscale residences, more than 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 6,000 square feet of amenity space.  The 3,5-acre site will also contain a five-story parking garage which replaces the former open-air commuter parking lot.  The garage will offer 722 spaces, of which 415 will be designated for New Jersey Transit commuters.  The building is expected to be completed in spring, 2010, with the garage targeted for spring, 2009 completion.  The developer is Rosewood – a joint venture between Roseland Property Company and Woodmont Properties. The Highlands at Morristown Station continues a major multi-phase redevelopment effort underway in Morristown that will ultimately result in some 526 new residences.

Your Morristown NJ Real Estate Investment

I know you've heard this before, but I'll say it again because its really so important and true.  When you're considering a move, keep in mind that the most important thing is the location.  I really wish I could remember who said this to me, but it was about 6 years ago.  I believe the exact phrase was "that train line is very powerful".  Well, he wasn't kidding!! The homes along the Mid-town Direct train line are definitely a good investment and hold their value.  Many of the residents from Summit New Jersey thru Morristown New Jersey and in the surrounding towns on the train line work in New York.  Living in New York is quite expensive, so they choose to live in New Jersey convenient to the train line.Your home is a big investment.  Its really no different than investing in a mutual fund or stocks but its actually better because you get to live in it and write off the taxes.  That is exactly how I look at real estate.  There is no "perfect home" they all have flaws, just like people but you can love them anyway.  You can and should consider your investment carefully and invest wisely.  Try to be certain that your investment has the best of all opportunities to grow and hold up with market fluctuations in a good or bad economy.  Buying a home in Summit New Jersey or even a Morristown town home is a solid investment.Susan Zanzonico...

The Planning Board approved a scaled-down 66-unit condominium plan Monday that will also include 17 affordable housing units in Morristown NJ.Plans for a condominium complex on a 1.3- acre site on Ann and Court streets had been scaled back at a Planning Board site committee meeting in December.The approved plans call for a reduction from eight stories to six, the units to be placed in an L-shape pattern instead of a U-shaped one and the reduction of the square footage of each unit from 1,600 square feet to 1,450.The project, proposed by Pulte Homes, would include 66 condo units, including 61 two-bedroom units and four one-bedroom units, an outdoor terrace, a fitness center and 133 underground parking spaces.Earlier plans called for 62 two-bedroom condo units and four townhouses.The development will be on a hill on the site of what originally held three 19th century houses.

Buyers and Sellers in Summit New Jersey Be Smart!

This is inspired by an experience I had with a high-end buyer in Summit New Jersey who was not at all educated by their hopefully "previous" realtor on issues that surprised me.  It is more than a little disturbing to me to find out that a buyer would know nothing about a Consumer Information Statement, Seller's Disclosure and in this case the New Jersey "mansion tax" or buyer's transfer tax.  Buying or selling your home is a big transaction and choosing the right realtor is imperative.  In most cases if not all, this is your largest investment.  Buyers and sellers, please be sure to entrust this transaction to a full time real estate professional with experience and a track record.  Someone who is in a position to give you advice on homes in Summit NJ or your market area.Do not make the mistake of using someone as a "favor" to someone else...your brother-in-law, a friend's mother who does this part-time.  You want to be sure your realtor is active in real estate and relies on selling real estate for their livelihood.  Someone who sells real estate full time will be knowledgeable about real estate technology, the market area and will listen to you specific needs. New Jersey Real Estate Sales
