Interview with Grim from North Jersey

Snip...

[My whole interest in real estate came after I got married and we started doing the same thing every other newly married couple does. We were renting an apart ment and we would go out and try to look for a place and it was intimidating. This was in early 2005, during the frenzy of the bid ding wars. We made a bid on two properties and, of course, we were outbid on both and it was just silly. One of the houses was in Montclair. It was listed for $499,000. Great price, right? But, of course, it closed for $700,000. It was incredible. And at the point, it was like: "This has gone too far. The market has just lost its mind."]

And here is Grim's Blog. It's got great coverage of the real estate market for North Jersey, which of course, effects Jersey Shore real estate.
