Residential real estate continues to struggle in most markets in New Jersey. However, Coccia Real Estate Group has surged ahead during this challenging time. The 2nd and 3rd quarters were particularly successful times to move houses during last year. Most of the agents in our office ended the year with an increased sales volume from previous years. “It was great to see everyone get involved and begin to sell homes.”, said Christopher Coccia, Broker /Owner of Coccia Real Estate Group.
In the 2nd quarter, Lois DeCaro and her team joined Coccia Real Estate Group and she presently manages the Whippany office. The branch office is improving and there are more signs up this year than last year. The company is truly excited to have presence in town and signs of gaining market share.
The company enjoyed a 70% increase in overall sales from 2009. Agents such as Christine Nagy, Marie LaQuaglia, Liz Cuccolo, Tracey Franco and Regina Quartararo really improved and showed consistency throughout the year.
We are proud to announce Coccia Real Estate sold the most homes out of any other office in East Hanover for the year 2010. Plainly speaking if it was listed or sold in East Hanover last year chances are our East Hanover office was part of the transaction. Our commitment to the community, print advertising and ever increasing presence on the internet is truly the recipe for the success we enjoyed.
We are very excited that the community is really starting to take note and trust us with handling the sale of their most important asset – Their Home! Christopher Coccia stated, “I am most excited about our prospects for Florham Park this year. We clearly proved last year that we are able to effectively sell homes. People in the community know it and our phone is ringing more! I expect to see us with a greater presence this year in Florham Park”

On October 29th and 30th the Picatinny Arsenal will have its annual Halloween Haunted House. This is a great event that my family enjoys every year and apparently many people agree with me because more than 2,000 visitors attend from the North New Jersey area each season.
There is lots of fun to be had such as witches, goons and goblins but there is also a 40 x 18 ft high inflatable obstacle course. The dun begins at 6:30 pm and tickets are reasonably prices. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent. If you work up an appetite feel free to stop by the Cemetery Café for graveside dining.
Hope to see you there!

Every since we started to place color pictures in newspaper ads I always knew that it was important to take the best picture I could. Now, with the internet allowing you to put 20+ pictures of the exterior and interior of home it is more important than ever!
According to a company called Redfin Corp., a Seattle-area real estate firm, Sales listings taken by higher-end single-lens-reflex cameras (SLR), preferred by professionals, garner higher prices than those properties whose sellers use point-and-shoot cameras.
Redfin analyzed listings in their market area and it was easily determined that houses with better photos sold from $934 to $116,000 more. The study directly compared point and shoot cameras to digital SLR camera’s. SLR cameras with their high quality lenses were a clear winner. The study also showed that properties with better photos (the more the better) got more online clicks.
Only about 25% of the photos in the mls are shot with high quality SLR cameras.
All Coccia Real Estate Group’s photos are taken with Olympus SLR camera with a wide angle lens.

On Sunday, October 3rd my son and I attended the semiannual pancake breakfast held at the fire house on Brooklake Road in Florham Park. It was a great event and seemed to get more crowded as the day went on. Before sitting down to breakfast, my son and I were treated to a tour of the old firehouse which was moved from Ridgedale Avenue a few years ago. The 1st floor has an old fire truck on display complete with all the original brass, hoses and antique equipment. The 2nd floor was a display of old fire suits, protective gear, extinguishers, and pictures. A very impressive collection from the last 50 years all within the borders of the town I have lived in for last ten years.
After spending about a ½ hour looking through the museum it was time to get down to the real business of eating pancakes! I was happy to say that breakfast was delicious! We were treated to pancakes and sausage from the fire department served with juice and coffee and my son was even given his very own fire helmet.
The Florham Park Volunteer Fire Department holds two annual pancake breakfast fundraising events each year. Check their website frequently for current information. www.florhamparkfiredepartment.org.

Here are 10 reasons why buying a home right now is a great idea:
1. You can get a good deal. Prices are down 30 percent on average. They're at a level that makes sense for people's income.
2. Mortgages are cheap. At 4.3 percent on average for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, your costs to own are down by a fifth from two years ago.
3. You can save on taxes. When you add up the deductions for mortgage interest and others, the cost of owning can drop below renting for a comparable place.
4. It'll be yours. The one benefit to owning that never changes is that you can paint your walls orange if you want (generally speaking; there might be some community restrictions). How many landlords will let you do that?
5. You can get a better home. In some markets, it's simply the case that the nicest places are for-sale homes and condos.
6. It offers some inflation protection. Historically, appreciation over time outpaces inflation.
7. It's risk capital. If the economy picks up, you stand to benefit from that, even if you're goal is just to have a nice place to live.
8. It's forced savings. A part of your payment each month goes to equity.
9. There is a lot to choose from. There are some 4 million homes available today, about a year's supply. Now's the time to find something you like and get it.
10. Sooner or later the market will clear. The U.S. is expected to grow by another 100 million people in 40 years. They have to live somewhere. Demand will eventually outpace supply.

Christopher Coccia, Broker / Owner of Coccia Real Estate Group in East Hanover, NJ attended the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World annual convention on April 9-10th 2010. The conference was held in Las Vegas and membership attendance was up over 60% from last year. The conference included workshops, seminars, speakers and intense training classes.
FHA commissioner, Dave Stevens attended the conference and spoke to a packed ballroom. He gave strong warnings that the first time as well as existing home buyer tax credits would not be continuing after the April 30th deadline. He as well as several other speakers gave strong opinions on the direction they felt interest rates were headed and that direction was consistently up! Exact rates varied slightly but the over whelming majority placed rates somewhere between 5 5/8% and 6 ¼% by 3rd quarter.
This conference stressed the importance of a successful Real Estate office being most effective when they work as a team. This is a philosophy which is stressed as most important at Coccia Real Estate Group! We have a staff of over forty agents that work together to successfully market and sell homes in the Morris and Essex county areas. The other key ingredient mentioned time and time again was internet marketing. Just under half of the total classes held were about internet marketing, blogging or social media. Coccia Real Estate Group is committed to a strong internet presents and image. As of today’s date a Coccia listing is places on closed to thirty different websites. It is marketed with as many as 24 pictures. If a site allows uploading of video then one is provided (if not provided we link to youtube.com).
If one thing was taken from this conference it’s that the future is now. A Real Estate office needs to be creative, innovative and forward thinking. Give us a call today to hear about our marketing plan for both the internet and print media.

An $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit and home prices dropping down to more affordable prices may make 2010 known as the “Year of the First-Time Home Buyer.
There will be 1.84 million homes sold to first-time home buyers in 2010, compared with 1.73 million in 2009.
These buyers will invariably make some mistakes that they will come to regret a few years down the road, some experts say, including failing to use a real estate professional to help them manage the transaction.
Realtors or Real Estate Professionals have the time and knowledge to sift through thousands of listings and separate the good from the bad. A Realtor has seen it all! Good deals, bad deals, houses that are prone to issues and houses that are well priced and in good shape. A Realtor can help you decide when you’ve found the right home and when you haven’t.
"I would want someone who is going to look out for my interests first and foremost," says Boss. "Someone who knows the contracts, who has experience negotiating, and who can walk me through the entire process smoothly — step by step — and make sure I get the house that's right for me. That is what we do here at Coccia Real Estate Group." Says Chris Coccia, Owner/Broker of Coccia Real Estate Group, LLC, East Hanover, NJ.

Buyers Rush to Beat Tax Credit Deadline in Morris County
At Coccia Real Estate we have seen first-time home buyers flooding the sale market, pressed to finalize a deal before the federal government's $8,000 tax credit offer expires on Nov. 30.
Because mortgage approvals, residential inspections, and other steps in the buying process typically take about two months, buyers hoping to take advantage of the incentive will need to have a contract by the end of September.
The new flurry of activity now as house-hunters try to meet the deadline is just another reason to list your house now to prepare for the September/Fall sales season. We expect to see more homes under contract as the deadline approaches. Coccia has seen a steady flow of buyers through the summer months when the market typically slows.
Monday, 13 July 2009
So far July has been a productive month with new listings in East Hanover and Florham Park. These listings range from $559,00 0-634,900.
Buyers are continuing to take advantage of low interest rates, low home prices and a “too good to be true” $8,000 tax credit. This weekend alone we were able to place three homes in attorney review including a Florham Park home, a townhome in Morristown and a townhome in Roxbury.
Coccia Real Estate Group is a rapidly growing Real Estate office locate in Morris County. We have over 40 agents who speak several different languages to better serve you. Call us today to find out how a local, family owned and operated company works differently than the giants.

We are just about halfway through 2009 and it appears we have turned a corner. The last four months have manifested a change in the behavior of buyers towards Real Estate. No longer are they nervous, afraid, apprehensive or unwilling. It seems that people are willing to buy again!
I am not sure what the main reason is for this change in thinking. It could be the $8,000 tax credit for 1st time buyers, the historically low interest rates, the willingness for banks to lend money again, the terrifically low prices that homes are selling for now or maybe just a general consensus that the “worst Is over” and I still have a job.
I am very happy to say that this is great news for both buyers and sellers in today’s market. If you are looking to sell you can now feel comfortable that if your house is listed properly you will have activity. If you are looking to buy this greater activity has given homeowners more confidence to place their home on the market and this gives you more choice of quality homes to choose from.
I have endured a constant question for the last 18 months and I can finally say I think I can answer it. The question asked of me is, “Have we hit bottom yet”.
My answer has always been, “We won’t know it’s the bottom until we have risen from it.”
Things appear to be getting better. Don’t let this opportunity get away. If you are thinking of buying a home call your Coccia Real Estate professional today and let them educate you on all the advantages you have purchasing in today’s market.

Chris Coccia is proud to announce that Carmine Prudente and his staff have joined Coccia Real Estate Group, LLC in East Hanover. Carmine and his team bring years of established service and experience to an already dynamic sales team.
Carmine Prudente began selling Real Estate in 1981 at Frontier Realty located in Florham Park. The owner of Frontier Realty Jack Fineman, quickly recognized Carmine as an asset and promoted him to the position of office manager. Carmine remained at Frontier Realty until he decided to make the bold decision to open his own office in East Hanover in 1994. Prudente Realty served the community of East Hanover for nearly fifteen years and quickly became a power house team employing more than one hundred agents over the years.
Prudente’s team nearly doubles the staff of an already growing team of “Coccia” agents. The new Realtors consist of residents from Florham Park, East Hanover, Montville and Whippany and speak Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Mandarin, Chinese and Taiwanese.
Coccia expanded his office space at the beginning of last year to keep up with demand from the community. The office is conveniently located next to 7-11 in the Berkeley Plaza and is brand new from the ground up. Coccia Real Estate Group is proud to say that it currently houses more than 70% of East Hanover agents under one roof. “A comprehensive marketing plan consisting of print advertising, the internet and cable TV is the secret to selling homes in today’s market.” Says Christopher Coccia, Broker/Owner. “The other important ingredient is a well trained, knowledgeable team of agents who are willing to sacrifice to achieve their goal.
For more information on buying or selling with the help of a “Coccia” agent please feel free to contact them by phone: 973-887-2500 or stop by and meet them: 434 Ridgedale Avenue, East Hanover, NJ or see them on the web at www.CocciaRealEstate.com.
