Markets go up and markets go down.  Knowing how to buy or sell in an ever-changing environment can take some skill and certainly a lot of research in order to prevent paying too much or receiving too little for your home.

There are definitely more resources available today which help you determine what a fair market value might be for a particular property.  In fact, the internet is changing a lot of things in regards to buying and selling real estate, but what these tools can’t tell you is how the local (micro) market performing.  As an example, within any one of the townships in Sussex County, you will find small communities like lake communities or townhouse and condo developments, or even a small Toll Brothers community with a few dozen homes tucked away in what otherwise would seem to be a rural spread out open neighborhood.

The value of these homes can very drastically and in fact not conform to the general market analysis.  In the interest of not boring you to tears, let me just say this:  We can and do help people every day determine how to buy or sell in this dynamic environment by using our expertise and extensive knowledge of these micro markets to determine exactly how they are performing.  This is our job and we do it well.

For most of us, the biggest purchase or sale in our entire life is a home, and we understand and respect that very much.  It is our job to make sure that you make the best decision for you and your own circumstances by providing you with the most accurate accounting of an individual property’s value.

To sum it up, let me say this:  We hire experts for so many things in our life from doctors and dentists to plumbers, electricians and carpenters and we trust that they will perform at the peak of the abilities.  It’s no different when you want to buy or sell a home.  Hire a pro, someone with knowledge and expertise.  It will pay off in the long run.
