"... we had results [with Cathy] which we did not have with our previous agent." - Nausheen H .
"It is my first house and as a first time buyer I had a lot of questions. She [Cathy] answered all my queries. She also gave me a lot of good advice ...She has also helped me a lot after the closing of the house." - Sunil J.
"It is with great pleasure that my husband and I recommend Cathy Chaudemanche to anyone requiring a top notch Realtor. We absolutely had no reservations in entrusting Cathy to act as our seller’s agent and to list the sale our home at 9 Julie Dr. in Edison N.J. in Nov. 2012. We were very impressed by Cathy’s professionalism, her commitment, and diligence. She did a stellar job at marketing the property, providing advice and useful insights on pre-listing renovations and staging. We were very pleased with the virtual tour and the manner in which our home was listed, presented, and shown to prospective buyers. Cathy went above and beyond during the closing negotiations, which happen to fall right after Hurricane Sandy hit N.J. She was sensitive, courteous, and encouraging. Cathy clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In our particular case, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Cathy was there to provide reassurance and support. She made it happen!
Cathy’s local market knowledge is invaluable as are her relationships in the community. Cathy is a true professional and in a class by herself. I highly recommend her." Jane G

Monitoring the local Middlesex County NJ real estate market and estimating the current overall status of the market has a lot to do with DOI (Days of Inventory) or Absorption Rate. Days of Inventory (DOI) in January is 244 days. It means it would take about 8 months to sell all existing inventory.. A market with more than 6 months supply typically qualify as a Buyer's market.
Experts are now agreeing that 2012 has become the bottom year and we are clearly now on the road to Real Estate recovery. Real estate is local and not all local markets are reacting and trending identically over the same period of time. Also various segments of the market typically behave differently (i.e rentals versus purchase, new construction versus existing homes, single family versus multiple dwellings, etc…).
We have changed the Barometer from a “Strong Buyer’s Market” to a “Buyer’s Market” last July (07/2012) for the first time since 2006 (Real Estate bubble) as most local Middlesex county statistics we follow have started aligning to confirm the way to a more balanced market.
