Selling a Home in 2022- Tarvin Realtors

With only a slight uptick in mortgage rates, 2022 is still expected to be a seller's market. If you're looking to sell your home, now's the best time to do so. A few things should top your to-do list before listing your property. Our agents can give you a firm idea of what to expect when selling your home and what you can do to help your home sell faster.

For one, you'll need to have a good understanding of the housing market. Typically, spring is the best time to put your home up for sale.

Historical Destinations - Bergen County, NJ - Tarvin Realtors

Heritage Treasures Day is observed on January 11, 2022, to celebrate historical artifacts, learn about history, and promote preservation. Bergen County has several historically notable sites that are well worth a visit on this day or any day of the year.

Our agents suggest checking out the following Bergen County sites.

  1. Bishop House - 176 East Saddle River Rd., Saddle River, NJ 07458
    Also known as the Ackerman-Dewsnap Home, the Bishop House was built around 1835 on the farm of Garret Ackerman. It was sold to James Dewsnap around 1870, and he built an addition to the home. The Bishop family renovated it after World War II, and it was sold to the borough in 1980. The house served as the municipal building in 1981, and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Architects worked to bring the building to modern times while preserving its history. Today, it serves as the city's cultural center and is conveniently located just around the corner from Saddle River homes for sale.
