Recently, a fellow realtor from a local branch office of a large real estate chain asked me when my next real estate report is coming out.  He confessed that he looks forward to reading my report and does not have the kind of data I provide available elsewhere and finds the market data extremely valuable and interesting. it is:

So without further delay, welcome to the March 2017 JB West Orange Real Estate Report.  Real estate prices have remained steady throughout the winter.  With the mild winter weather (even with the recent storm), buyers started looking early this spring.
