As a realtor I find it easy to showcase homes in a particular neighborhood. I can analyze the value, make suggestions for home improvements, no problem there. The difficult part of My job is explaining to a new home buyer that when you purchase a home you are buying more than the four walls you see. An important aspect of finding your New Jersey home is the community or neighbors which come along with the real estate. Upper Montclair NJ Real Estate is priced toward the Upper end for Essex County New Jersey, but the neighborhoods are well worth it.
Today I will focus on the PaNaMa Neighborhood recently recognized by NJ Patch, consists of three blocks in the middle of Upper Montclair NJ. Houses range from 3 bedrooms, 1 bath homes in the $450,000 range to 5 bedrooms and 3.1 bath homes in the mid $700,000 range. This small neighborhood is both affordable and convenient to New York City and Upper Montclair Shopping. The area consists of the residents on Nassau Rd., Macopin Rd., Patton Place and a small island park in the center of these streets, where the local children play. The community has created a network of neighbors which correspond by email for local news, friday night Pizza Parties with wine for the adults, neighborhood block parties, along with other friendly activities. The neighborhood is a great starter area for Montclair home buyers, being welcoming and inviting for new residents in Upper Montclair. A good resource for home buyers is a local realtor which knows the community and where to begin your relocation efforts.
