July Real Estate Market Conditions

The local real estate market continues the turnaround begun early in the year.  Here is the July update on Real Estate Absorption rates in the area.  The absorption rate number is how many months it would take for the current inventory of listings to sell given the current monthly rate of homes going under contract.

As buying has been brisk this spring and early summer, inventory has remained stable.  Its possible the rates will drop even further as less new listings hit the market in the fall and the remaining inventory continues to be sold.

Single Stream Recycling








South Orange has adopted single stream recycling as of July 11, 2012.

You no longer need to separate your recyclables.  Newspaper, bottles, plastic and cardboard can all go in a single toter.

See the town website and its pdf attachment for more info about pickup, schedules and materials.










Fill in the green space with picnic blankets, a thousand or so people, a stage, a host of very interesting musicians, food, drinks and crafts and what have you got?
