Baristaville Open Houses: Sunday, Nov. 21

Quite a few of the open houses this week are properties showing for at least the second time, and in a few cases many more than that. Many are touting reduced prices, including 5 Roosevelt Pl., Unit 1G, Montclair,  featured in the Sept. 26 roundup. The list price was reduced $8,600 to $299,900; open house 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Offerings are slightly quieter this weekend; about 75 properties total are showing. There’s some variety to be had, but not much. Deals are definitely available, including a three bedroom West Orange Ranch for $235,000 (price reduced by $10,000 Nov. 18) and a three bedroom Colonial in Maplewood for $250,000. The top tier of the market has considerably slowed in recent weeks, especially in Montclair, which is quiet this week in all price ranges – just four properties are showing.
