OpenHouseCollageBreak out the scooter and the roller skates: If you’re in the market for a house in Verona, you’ve got a lot of ground to cover this weekend.

There are three new listings, one of which is also new construction. There are six properties with lower prices, which might mean that they deserve another look.

But the big news in Verona real estate is the 15 16 listings with open houses scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Prices on these properties start at $399,900 and go up over $1 million, with plenty of options in between.

  1. Two friends of ours are looking for a place in Verona and sent this to me:
    “I have a question about Franklin Street in Verona. In our search for a house, I have noticed that lots and lots of houses on Franklin Street have been coming onto the market — and for a while now. At an open house somewhere else in Verona a while back, I overheard someone tell the selling agent there that they already live in Verona, but “you know, we’re on Franklin, so we’re trying to move.” Do you know what’s up with that? I gather from some stuff I’ve seen online that there are a lot of people unhappy with noise from the high school, and that explains why lots of people would be trying to leave the west end of Franklin, but why so many houses up for sale further east on that street? Any ideas?
    Any truth to this and if so, why?”
    I’d be glad to refer them to you if you’re still in the real estate business

  2. Terry, lots to sort out here.

    First let’s deal with noise. There has been only 1 noise complaint in the police blotter since January, and that was on Linn Drive, which is by the Community Center. There were also two overnight incidents of what might have been fireworks in the F.N. Brown corner of town, possibly at the high school field. But no noise complaints for any high school activity.

    Then the listings on Franklin. There are three Franklin homes listed right now: One by the corner of Fairview, one between the Peckman and Grove (backs up to F.N. Brown, not the high school) and one on the east side of the Peckman. Since January, according to our real estate columns, there has been only one other Franklin listing. It is not now active. But to put these numbers in perspective, there are 107 total properties on Franklin from east to west. To put that in perspective, there are 3 listings now on Cumberland Avenue (out of 67 properties) and 3 on Summit Road, which only has 20 properties. There are 5 listings on Durrell, but four of them are for houses that haven’t been built yet.

    We don’t know what has caused the Franklin owners to list; we don’t interview sellers as part of the real estate column. One man’s noise is another man’s happy kids at play, and the noise level in Verona is, overall, far less than many other places we’ve lived in, which includes Manhattan, Brooklyn and two cities in Europe.

    Your friends might want to stop by Verona on a game day and listen for themselves. The Verona baseball schedule is here. Keep in mind that Cedar Grove High School is playing some of its games on Verona’s field now because its field is under construction. The Cedar Grove schedule is here.
