It's free! It's finished! It's for you in Hamilton Township NJ

When was the last time you got real value from something that you received for free?

This special buyer's incentive from Edward Bucci Custom Builders in Dogwood Meadows delivers $25,800 worth of value to your new home purchase. This $25,800 incentive allows you to dream big, expand your possibilities and create an extra living space that you thought might have to be put on hold.

What is it? A free finished basement. A free finished basement adds about 800 sq. ft. of heated living space to your new home so you don't have to wait for the recreation or home theater room of your dreams. With the money you saved in construction, you can go shopping for toys for that special space. Or if you are a little more conservative, think of expanding your bedrooms or a guest suite into the extra space.

Dogwood Meadows is a 10-unit development in Hamilton Township. There are five models to choose from: Fernwood, Birkshire, Greentree, Rosewood, and Chestnut. Hamilton Township is America's Favorite Hometown. It's great feeling to live in a community that strives to be well-connected to the people that call it home.

Home ownership is good for the economy

I had a great day yesterday. I was busy, meeting with clients, and together we made some pretty solid decisions; solid decisions that benefit you as a prospective New Jersey home buyer.

First, the owners of this 3-bedroom colonial at 265 N. Burtis, Hamilton, NJ decided to lower the price on their home to $279,900. This is an opportunity that you don't want to miss!

Next, I met with the builders of two new construction homes in Lawrenceville, NJ. Guess what? They have offered a price reduction as well at 892 Lawrence Road, Lawrenceville, NJ. Imagine yourself in a spacious, new 4-bedroom home in Lawrenceville!

Last evening, I listened to our president as he graciously tried to allay the worries of our nation regarding the mortgage and banking industry. It could have been scary. It could have been troublesome; but all in all it was hopeful and positive. True, we are facing more challenges than we did three or four years ago. We are restructuring our economy due to some miscarriages in the system. But isn't it great that we are taking responsibility for our actions? Isn't it great that we can see home ownership as a true investment in our future?

Let me say it again. I had a great day yesterday. Call me at (609) 587-9300 x 403 or (609) 658-2612 and together we can make it a great day today.

Make Hamilton Township your Hometown

How can a city claim to be "Everyone's Hometown?" It's simple really. All it takes is dedicated staff of public servants who are committed to making their community the best place to live, work and play. Hamilton Township, led by Mayor John Bencivengo, has that kind of dedication.

They are committed to fiscal integrity and transparency and have vowed to always remember that the money they spend truly belongs to the people. When you look at the Hamilton Township web site, you will find the municipal budget front and center. Take a look...every homeowner should be engaged in the governance of their township because it's not just about paying the staff salaries; that budget pays for parks, roads, sanitation services, and other economic and community development initiatives. It is the tool of the people.

Of course the people are the lifeblood of the community. If you took just a minute to click on the link above, then you owe it to yourself to look just a little more. Check out this lovingly cared for and wonderfully remodeled New Jersey home at 103 Homestead, Colonial Manor, Hamilton, New Jersey. It's a great deal, in a great community. Make an appointment today and find out why everyone's hometown really should be your hometown too.

Bordentown: the allure of history

Ocean Spray calls the city home; but don't worry, Bordentown is more than just cranberries. Bordentown has a 325-year history that began before the American Revolution and continues to thrive today. With its rich past and charming old-town establishment, it is easy to be seduced by the allure of maturity and sophistication and the sense of being a part of something that is bigger than us. Living in a community like this lets us imagine that our legacy will live on and on.

Personally, I find that romantic notion appealing. If you do too, this charming ranch house in Van Estates of Bordentown will really strike your fancy. Take the visual tour and then call me at 609-587-9300 ext 403 (office), 609-658-2612 (cell) to see this New Jersey home in person.

Finish your research of the historic city by visiting Downtown Historic Bordentown online. You'll be impressed with the great activities, events, and opportunities that await you in this charming community.

Great is the word of the day in Hamilton, New Jersey

Great neighborhood. Great home. Great price. It is easy to see what makes this new listing at 265 N. Burtis Avenue, Hamilton, New Jersey a great opportunity for your family.

But did you know that you can make this an even a greater deal with a $7,500 infusion from the government? That's right; first time home buyers are eligible for a $7,500 tax credit for homes purchased and closed between April 9, 2008 and July 1, 2009. If you or your spouse has not owned a principal residence in the three years prior to your purchase, you can consider yourself a first time home buyer for the purpose of this program.

There are no applications or forms to fill out; however, the home buyer must be sure they qualify under the income limits and first-time home buyer tests available at the IRS website:

From there, everything is completed on your tax return to the IRS. You might be wondering how does a tax credit differ from a tax deduction? A tax credit is a dollar for dollar match against the tax owed whereas a tax deduction is subtracted from the amount taxed.

The $7,500 tax credit program was made possible by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. The government has made provisions to recapture the credit after the second year of home ownership. The homeowner is simply asked to add $500 to his income tax liability each year for 15 years.

I would love to discuss this great opportunity with you. Call me today at 609-587-9300 ext 403 (office), 609-658-2612 (cell) to learn more. I look forwarding to hearing from you!

Invest your savings in a New Jersey home

Happy Monday! I awoke to positive news today for the New Jersey real estate market. According to the newspapers, Americans are saving more money than in previous months. Yes, I know that those same papers are also telling us that is a negative statistic because thrift acts to deepen a recession. According to the analysts, people must spend their disposable income and buy big ticket items for our economy to function effectively.

Now it's my turn to tell you why I think savings is good. Savings is an indication that you understand and value making an investment in yourself. People who save generally make wise decisions about where to invest their hard-earned, much-respected savings. And I don't have to tell you that a home is the largest, most important investment that you can make.

I won't debate that it would be easy to be tenuous in your decisions right now, but I do want you to know that it really is a good market, especially for someone who has been saving, waiting for just the right moment. Your time is now!

Are you ready to take a look? Let me help you research your New Jersey home in Hamilton Township, Mercer County and surrounding counties of Burlington, Monmouth, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and Ocean. Call me today at 609-658-2612. I would love to meet you and discuss your needs and dreams.
