Should I Renovate or Sell My Home

Today, I’m with Ileana Martin-Novoa of Katz Novoa Architects. Ileana is an extraordinary architect and she is here to tell us about what’s going on with all the renovations in town and how to add value to your home.

Ileana Martin-Novoa

There is a lot of rebuilding and renovations going on. Some of it’s because of the storm, but a lot of people are finally ready to start those projects they have been putting off. The economy is bouncing back and people feel more confident.

It’s important to always keep in mind resale value when deciding to renovate.  Right now we are seeing a lot of  homeowners renovating kitchens, master bathrooms and even adding mudrooms.

We like to help our clients stay on track by guiding them in a direction that will help add value to their home. We know that new construction can be overwhelming, that’s why we make sure we are with our clients from the very  beginning to the very end. At Katz Novoa Architects we help with the coordinating, the building and the budgeting.

If you want to renovate your home, we’d be more than happy to help.  You can call us at 973.379.1331 or

Millburn, NJ High School Earns an “A”!

 

Millburn, NJ High SchoolThe schools in Millburn, NJ are fantastic, making living in Millburn, NJ especially desirable for families with school-age children!

In a recent report issued by Inside Jersey magazine, Millburn HS earned an “A” for academics!

Ratings were derived by using a formula comparing results over a four-year period and looking for trends in student achievement.

The data used was provided by the NJ Department of Education. They provided High School Proficiency Assessment results for the areas of math and language arts for the general student population. SAT scores for each school were added in, and the scores were weighted over the four year period.

The scores were as follows: Median Score (all schools): A score of 317 with 4.8 percent median growth. Millburn HS had a score of 393.3 and 3.2% growth rate, giving them an “A” rating! Schools with average test scores above the average got ratings of A’s and B’s. Those with below-average scores were rated with C’s and D’s.

Due to the very high scores previously recorded, the Millburn High School score reflects a smaller amount of growth than the average school. On the scale being used, there is not as much room for growth for the schools at the top!

I’d love to show you any of the fabulous homes available for sale in the fabulous Millburn, NJ school district! Please contact me by phone at 973-214-0691 or by email at Shannon@ShannonAronson.com.
