A Lovely Four Bedroom - $564,900


MLS# 2200703 - Pleasant Hill Road, Randolph, New Jersey
Asking Price $564,900 (Reduced from $599,900)
Days on Market: 118

Certainly is a lovely home. Is the trash on the front lawn and dead grass part of the professional landscaping? I wonder if they imported that siding as well. Think they'll have the screen reinstalled before closing?

Caveat Emptor,

All I have to say is "Wow" you mean to tell me this person's listing agent didn't advise them to make some repairs on the outside of their house before asking for that outlandish price??? I've seen homes on the market for $250k and the outside looks soo much better. See things like this makes me want to rent forever. That is obsured. Wow!!

Oh by the way, the listing agent will withdraw the listing and re-list with a different mls number to make it look like the property hasn't been on the market for 118 days. Also Check out mls nos. 2078496 and 2241237 same properties but RE agent decided to TRY and fool us into thinking this is a new listing when actually it has been on the market for 255 days. Just venting!! See I am willing to take this property off the banks hand but not at the current asking price. Any suggestions??

I'd love to see a picture of the pool.

I wonder if it's doubling as a septic system as well.

Good example of lunacy at peaks and on way down.

Denial denial denial.

Prices are going to plunge by about june when reality hits hard.

Incentives also are catching on in the resale market.

Regina Luster, a state worker, has been trying to sell her 2,100-square-foot rental home in the Pocket since October for $559,000. She recently tried to sweeten the deal by offering to cover closing costs and lend a buyer enough to cover a 10 percent down payment.

"It's an effort to let buyers know you're flexible - that you're trying to work with them and not just trying to take advantage of a market that no longer exists," Luster said.

That quote is COMICAL!!!

I know looks are subjective, but I think this house looks terrible! And they're asking over half a million dollars? It looks like there are two kinds of siding or shingles; it looks as though this house began as a tiny shack and underwent a few additions over the years. They also seemed to have installed a pseudo bay window near the entrance---to enhance it's "value"? This market is unbelievable---I can't wait for it to come back to normal.

Send these things in! They make great front page material. Even if mostly irrelevant, nothing like a good laugh to break up the day.

I think Anth said it best the other day..

Wouldn't be funny if it wasn't true.

I walk by that house all the time, and couldn't believe they were asking 609 either. I could be wrong, but I swear it was up for sale last summer at a lower price.

I think this one in Morristown is even worse, tho 200,000 less:

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Blogging is not always a rewarding journey, but I ran across yours on this trip and it was a good break from my own real estate work. Thanks. Keep up the interesting work and visit my site if you have a chance.
