Close to New York City and within range of all forms of transportation, Union County, New Jersey, has many fine golf courses to choose from. There are Union County’s parks and recreation departments courses, which are all excellent in their own way, with professional golf pros on hand, pro shops, tournaments, junior golf lessons, and much more! Then of course, there are the large private country clubs with all the amenities a golfer could ask for.
Similar to Westchester County, just north of New York City, many of the courses in Union County were designed by A. W. Tillinghast and his associates in the early 1900s. They are beautifully wooded and built on hilly, rolling terrain. In addition, many of the greens are sloped and elevated.
REAL ESTATE TIPS
Closing or Settlement >Preparing for the Walk Through
When moving out of a house you have lived in for a long time, you may discover years’ worth of dust that was previously concealed by your home furnishings. If you don’t have the time or energy to clean your house for the new owners, a useful option is to pay a professional to do the job.
Before going to the closing table, your buyers will have a last chance to walk through the house and check the appliances, mechanical systems and overall condition to make sure everything is consistent with the sales contract. Even though they really want the house, at this point “buyers’ remorse” may be prompting them to look for a reason to call the transaction off. Because an otherwise minor problem or defect can sometimes trigger last-minute cold feet, your best insurance is to make the house look great. Everything should be working properly, and all the agreed-upon repairs should have been made before the buyers arrive to look at the house. You can promote a more relaxed, positive atmosphere for the closing if you take special care in preparing for the walk-through inspection.
