buying a home in northern new jersey

Purchasing a home, especially for the first time, can be overwhelming. From deciding which town is the best fit, to finding the right home for your family, the Saritte Harel Team of realtors will guide you every step of the way.

At the beginning of our relationship, your real estate agent will sit down with you to understand your needs and goals - Do you commute to New York City? Are schools your first priority? Do you prefer an open floor plan? Are you willing to do work? Are you open to a busier street?

Another important first step is obtaining a pre-approval letter. This will help us focus in on homes for sale that fall within your budget and will help present you as a serious buyer when it comes time to submit an offer.

Ready for a tour? Our team members live and work in the northern New Jersey community. We are intimately familiar with the various neighborhoods, the mid-town direct trains, the schools, and current homes for sale. No less important are the other considerations that make a town a home - the best schools, parks, restaurants, shopping, places to workout, grab a cup of coffee, etc.

We have our finger on the pulse - what’s recently sold and what’s coming to market. Through our extensive agent and client network, we can help source homes not yet for sale or make a match with a potential seller.

Once we identify a home, we can help you evaluate its value based on recent comps. And if it needs work, we have an arsenal of contractors and professionals who can help determine the costs of improvements or repairs.

 

With so many moving parts, it is important to align yourself with professional realtors who will stay on top of the transaction from start to finish. Our role goes way beyond just putting in an offer and getting the house. You would be surprised how much work goes into the rest of the transaction - negotiating home inspections, facilitating attorney review, meeting the appraiser and most importantly, making sure you get to the closing table.
