New Jersey Home Buyer Tax Credit News

Hi EverybodyBob Says Hi

 
 
 
 

 

 

House Being Built

New Jersey Home Buyer Tax Credit in the News
We could all use some good news for a change couldn’t we?
Now that the Federal home buyer tax credit has expired, New Jersey home buyers have come a little bit closer to getting a terrific benefit from our home state government.

 

Last week the New Jersey State Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would provide New Jersey home buyers with a tax credit of up to $15,000. The bill still needs to pass the State Senate before it becomes law. The details are not yet announced but here are some of the highlights.
 
 
 

 

 

The tax credit is to be paid out to home buyers over three years. During which time the new buyers must continue to occupy the home. The credit has benn capped at a total of $100 million, which will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
Buying a House

$75 million of the total credit is earmarked for new construction.
 
 
 

 

 

This emphasis put on new construction is because that sector of the housing market has been lagging behind resales for quite sometime now. If new home construction can get back on its feet, it will provide a bigger stimulus in terms of new jobs that does resale housing.
We are going to be watching the developments of this new bill with great anticipation, and how it will effect us in Bergen County and the real estate market, if and when it becomes a reality.

 

Keep your fingers crossed.
Real Estate

Spring Ahead | Bergen County Real Estate

Yes it’s that time of the year again! Spring ahead! Yay!

Time to set your clocks ahead one hour and start enjoying daylight savings time again. I am really going to welcome stretching daylight out for another hour into the evening.

I am certainly looking forward to it. To me it means warmer weather can’t be far away.

But even more important, you should check your batteries in your smoke and CO detectors. If you are using batteries change them.

If hardwired just test them by pushing the button to make sure they are in working order.

 

My timepieces are not quite as big as Big Ben but…….Clocks Well, you get the point.

Just a friendly reminder to move your clocks ahead one hour Sunday morning at 2AM or before you go to bed on Saturday night so they will be already set  for you when you wake up on Sunday.  And check your smoke and CO detectors if you are using batteries.

Have a great day

Baylor Massacre Sign, River Vale, NJ

Established in the early 1900’s, the Township of River Vale is rich in History and has remained one of the most unassuming towns in the Pascack Valley region. It’s quiet yet upscale personality boasts three Golf Courses as well as the town center known to many as “The Four Corners” where the two main roads of River Vale Road and Westwood Avenue intersect to provide the town with shops, banks and local food stops. In recent months this section of town has begun to grow with additional areas designated for future shops.

Four Corners, River Vale, NJRiver Vale, NJ Town Center Clock

This is the place that I, Lisa, remember growing up. Walking to the town center known as the Four Corners with friends or one of my three sisters, I remember a simpler time when walking to grammar school was what I did. Having grown up on the South side of River Vale, I walked to Roberge School which covers grades K-5. Children on the North end of town attend Woodside. All meet at Holdrum School for grades 6-8 and then move up to Pascack Valley High School to join the children from the town of Hillsdale. Of course this was where I first met my husband, Bob!

This beautiful town of River Vale has undergone some changes in the form of updates to the town center as well as the River Vale Public Library. The town celebrated it’s 100 year River Vale Centennial in a year long celebration a few years ago.

Hillsdale New Jersey History

Welcome To Hillsdale New Jersey

Hillsdale New Jersey History – The October 13, 2008 edition of the local Pascack Valley’s Hometown Newspaper The Pascack Press,  talked about the October 7th meeting of the mayor and council where the landmark Hillsdale Police booth received a plaque noting it’s historical significance.

The article, written by correspondent Sonia Kinzler,   went on to talk about the country’s hard times and how the town of Hillsdale is doing it’s part to keep the local food pantry stocked with donations from residents.

According to the president of Hillsdale‘s Historic Preservation Committee, Beverly Rosenstein, the longtime residents might remember when the Traffic Booth was located in the middle of the intersection of Hillsdale Avenue and Broadway, as pictured below in the picture on the righthand side.

Old Postcard of Old Downtown Hillsdale

Old Postcard of Old Downtown Hillsdale

Having grown up in the town of Hillsdale, my husband Bob remembers a time when his father John recalled his father Sebastian Hammerstein was a local builder.  Hammerstein Family lore rumored that there was some possibility that grandfather Sebastian Hammerstein may have been involved in the design of the Traffic Booth.  The historic plaque being dedicated to the Hillsdale Traffic Booth honors the name John Oley, with whom the Hammersteins were friendly.

Ms. Rosenstein’s mention was recalled by both my husband and I as we remember when the Hillsdale Traffic Booth was moved.  Time fades many a memory but it’s still a great feeling to drive through the town of Hillsdale and see the icon poised proudly in the town center.
