central new jersey: What is a Green Mortgage? - 06/22/12 08:52 PM
Two things seem to be on everyone's mind lately – the heat, and the fact that the landscape around us is at its peak “greenness.” Speaking of green, you know that Gil and I like to focus occasionally on ideas to help you live green, being environmentally conscientious. We recently came across an interesting article from Keeping Current Matters, all about the ways in which smart financing can help the environment. Beyond the paperless mortgage that can save trees, there are two loan products that can finance energy efficient improvements to your home. And both can be done at time of … (0 comments)

central new jersey: Harvard Study: National Housing Market Showing Signs of Revival - 06/20/12 10:40 PM
According to the Harvard University Joint Center of Housing Studies latest State of the Nation’s Housing report, an increase in the number of renters and a drop in new constructions are breathing a little much-needed life back into the rental market. Rent rates are increasing and vacancies are decreasing. Additionally, construction of multifamily units is increasing. This news is cause for cautious optimism in the housing market, especially as it slowly regains ground in a sluggish overall national economy.
The depressed economy continues to plague rates of home ownership, and the report finds that the homeowner market still needs some work. … (0 comments)

central new jersey: Fannie Mae's 2012 First Quarter National Housing Survey - 04/04/12 08:05 PM
Gil and I always look forward to the quarterly release of Fannie Mae's National Housing Survey. The latest report is out, and we turned to our friends at Keeping Current Matters for a look at some of the survey's most important and interesting findings. It was great to learn that 84% of Americans think that owning a home makes more sense than renting.
Financial issues always seem to be the top concerns when it comes to home ownership, but the Fannie Mae study shows that the four main reasons for buying a home today don't have anything to do with money … (1 comments)

central new jersey: Some Really Good News, Post-Hurricane - 08/31/11 07:35 PM
 Good news for central New Jersey home owners. Like us, those cleaning up from flooding and downed trees caused by last weekend's natural disaster probably have filing an insurance claim at the forefront of their minds. Late Monday, Banking and Insurance Commissioner Thomas B. Considine ruled that Hurricane Irene didn’t generate hurricane-force winds in New Jersey — an important distinction since it means insurance companies should not apply so-called hurricane deductibles to the property damage caused by the storm.
According to the Asbury Park (NJ) Press and houselogic.com, the ruling is likely to collectively save New Jersey home owners – and … (2 comments)
