What RE/MAX is seeing in the area:

AmyAmy Breault an experienced realtor for our area provided her following evaluation of Real Estate in our area.

“Everything we see is trending up as the foreclosures and short sales are gone and people are buying. Different than your numbers above, we don’t see the trends going down but rather up in all areas around the lake.”

While Hopatcong were down for a while, we are seeing those pricing coming back up. And overall, the good news is that on the homes for sale we are seeing multiple offers, and in many cases, offers are over the asking price. Which once again indicates we are in a positive area for future real estate value increases.
