But 'ole Storm Sandy and the chill in the air haven't stopped buyers from looking.

Nope.

The only thing slowing the ready, willing, and able homebuyers down at this moment is not enough new, well-priced houses on the market for sale (or for rent) to choose from.

They are singing...

Matchmaker, Matchmaker
Make Me a Match

Find me a Find
Catch me a catch

Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Look through your book
And make me a perfect match

-- Lyrics from Fiddler on the Roof

 

Here are the South Orange homes currently for sale in the MLS.

One home in gorgeous Newstead that just came on the market for sale the other day is 64 Duffield Drive. It's everything rolled into one and many buyers are looking to see it during the Public Open House on Sunday, December 2 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.

If you know someone looking to move to town, pass this information along and tell them, this maybe their perfect match.

But if you're looking for a match for your home, then give us a ring and we'll look through our book, make you a find, to find you the perfect match. Because as the weather cools down, the home buying can heat up, read why here.

Happy Holidays.
