Real Estate Guide to Maplewood, NJ

Thinking of Living In…The Hilton Section: Maplewood’s Most Affordable Neighborhood — Last week got me thinking about the Hilton Section of Maplewood. First off, on my regular round of broker open houses I stopped in to two of the most adorable and affordable houses on the market in Maplewood currently– 79 Franklin Ave. priced at $358,000 and 206 Franklin Ave. priced at $379,000 both with taxes under $9,000 which is quite attractive for Maplewood. Their charm and on-trend interiors were delightful to see. It was a sunny day and there were was a nice amount of activity on the street with pedestrians, mom’s pushing strollers, etc.
The Maplewood Jitney: Everything You Need To Know – For Maplewood residents, the Jitney is a staple in the township, providing transportation services across the township to the downtown train station. The Jitney arose from a shortage of parking at and around the station and from the town’s environmental consciousness. If you are a Maplewood resident who is considering using the Maplewood Jitney, here is everything that you need to know to get started.
If You’re Thinking About Living In Maplewood’s Golf Island Neighborhood – Maplewood’s Golf Island neighborhood is an idyllic one– made up of just a few tree-lined streets with little traffic and no “through streets.” The neighborhood is surrounded by the Maplewood Country Club’s golf course which is where it gets its unique name.  Many of the homes in this area have lovely views of the manicured golf course. Highly coveted for it’s proximity to Maplewood Village, Maplewood Middle School, the train station, park and library, Golf Island is very convenient and appealing for people seeking a pedestrian oriented lifestyle.

Real Estate Guide to South Orange, NJ

Thinking of Living In…South Orange’s Newstead Neighborhood — Because it is one of the “newest” neighborhoods in S. Orange, with most of the homes being built during the 1950’s as opposed to the 1880s-1930’s like most of the rest of town, Newstead is one of the few neighborhoods S. Orange where mid -century buffs who are shopping for S. Orange, NJ real estate and homes can find what they are looking for. Many large ranch homes were built in the neighborhood during that era and they feature elements not found in earlier homes such as large finished basements, air conditioning, pools, first floor laundry rooms, larger closets and floor to ceiling windows and fireplaces. I’ve pictured some favorites in this post.
Thinking of Living in…The Seton Village Area of South Orange, NJ — This neighborhood was pretty much overlooked as little as five years ago and its retail corridor along Irvington Ave. struggled. Yet, because the increasing desire for affordable Maplewood and S. Orange housing opportunities in walking distance to town and train, coupled with a concerted effort by the Township of S. Orange Village to improve the shopping area, this neighborhood is on a definite upswing. According to Google, the walk from the corner of Tichenor Ave. at Irvington Ave. to the station on Sloan Street is 9 minutes. You can’t beat that!
The South Orange Jitney: Everything You Need To Know – South Orange, a township in Essex County, New Jersey, provides an easy, accessible transportation option to and from the South Orange Train Station. These convenient shuttles arose from a shortage of parking at and around the train station, causing headaches for commuters. Since South Orange is designated as a “transit village,” it has access to transportation grant money. Luckily these little shuttles started their engines in 2002 after the village applied and received a “Community Shuttle Grant” from New Jersey Transit.
