New Home Construction in the Short Hills, NJ Area

I wanted to focus on some of the high-end homes on the market, specifically in Millburn and Short Hills, NJ. Many of our clients are interested in new construction and there are many misconceptions about what it takes to get into new construction and what you get for the money. First, there is very little new construction under $2 million. Actively on the market, there are two homes that are under $2 million and they are both on White Oak Road.

Of the 37 homes that are on the market above $1.7 million in Millburn Short Hills, NJ, one-third is new construction. Comparatively, 1/3 of the houses that have sold in that $1.7 million range were new construction as well. In the past 12 months, 81 homes have sold in that price point and 25 of those were new construction.

In regards to the $2-2.5 million price point for homes in Millburn Short Hills, NJ, you typically get between 0.3-0.4 acre lot, 6-7 bedrooms and 6-7 bathrooms. When you breach the $2.5 million price point, you can expect to get between about a ½-3/4 of an acre lot. The average days on market for these homes is 75 days, but this can be larger due to the fact that some homes are re-listed and the selling price is about 95% of the list price. Since the homes are built on spec by the builders, it takes time for the price to come down to market value; this is where the buyers usually come in. The most raved about features for new homes is the high ceilings, low maintenance and ten year warranty.

If you have any questions or interest in these homes for sale, please contact me. You can reach me by phone at (973) 214-0691 or by email at Shannon@ShannonAronson.com. Please remember to visit my website at www.NJRealEstateDirect.com.

Millburn, NJ Police Department Collect for a Worthy Cause Through “No-Shave November”

The police officers of Millburn, NJ will grow goatees for the month of November as part of the “No-Shave November”, supporting charity initiative, “Down the Block”. This is the 2nd year the Millburn, NJ police department will be participating in the event. Thirty-four members of the department are participating.

It has always been the rule that officers could not have facial hair, with the exception of mustaches.   The officers will be paying for their privilege to grow a goatee during the month of November by making donations to the Millburn Police Department Down the Block Team. In turn, their contributions will be given to the non-profit “Down the Bock” organization, which provides financial support to residents in Millburn, NJ who are experiencing financial need. The local Police Benevolent Association (PBA) has agreed to match the department’s contribution to Down the Block. This will double the amount of money that will be donated to this wonderful cause.
