The article isn’t important, but the comments are, especially when they are from a mainstream NJ news paper. From the Star Ledger:

I agree nokel!
Real estate brokers will NEVER say publicly what they say privately:
the real estate market STINKS!
This is just another puff piece to fill space.

I agree as well. This person either totally delusional or a liar. I’m a 33 year old still renting and truth is we don’t need (or want) all those ‘luxury’ mcMansions sitting empty – when my husband and I decide to buy it certainly won’t be in a state with such overpriced and overtaxed housing.

Real estate agents are all insane. They pump out all these bs articles trying to promote an immediate need for people to buy now. Sales may be up but what they are neglecting to say is that nobody is getting what they want. Home prices will continue to plummet for a while. The government will not make the same mistake or at least in our lifetime and give free money to people that can’t repay it. On top of the highest property taxes in the nation, nj home prices will drop for another2-3 years if not longer.
My my, how times have changed.
