Another Historic Forest Hill Classic Sells Quickly

545-547 Clifton Avenue in the Historic Section of Forest Hill, Newark.

It’s clear that the demand for quality homes in  the Forest Hill section of Newark exceeds supply!

There’s a certain Forest Hill style that many buyers look for. This house has it. The result was that 545-547 Clifton Avenue was under contract in less than two weeks in part because of the MLS writeup. It not only describes the house, it makes connections to both Historic Forest Hill as well as to the new Newark, a city undergoing an amazing transformation:

[MLS copy] What a beautiful, Forest Hill classic, precisely what so many Forest Hill buyers want: a relaxing full porch; hardwood galore; 2600 sq ft of beautifully-sized rooms; ageless, stained glass windows.  Add to that a totally usable, 150-foot deep lot; the walkability of Forest Hill and Branchbrook Park; and the proximity of both downtown Newark and NYC. Called by some writers the new Brooklyn, Newark is undergoing some remarkable redevelopment. On the other hand, the Historic Forest Hill section has, in so many ways, stayed the same as it was when it was home to Newark’s, turn-of-the-century industrialists. What a great time to move to Forest Hill! What a great time to make this Forest Hill treasure your own.

It was a great pleasure representing the sellers’ interests in this transaction, a side benefit of which was the opportunity to build a relationship with their very cool dog, Lucy. Forest Hill’s loss is Washington’s gain. And thank you, Shawn, for these nice words (following).

Brian was everything we could have asked for in an agent: knowledgeable, diligent, personable. From our first meeting, he showed a great understanding of the local market based on extensive data analysis. He was able to identify the most unique features of our home and helped us to accentuate them. He set out an aggressive marketing plan, drawing strong interest in our home. And he kept us really well-informed about developments as they happened and about what to expect next. The result was a quick, smooth sale at a competitive price. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone. “
