On February 11th, a home on Central Avenue was burglarized, and a large quantity of jewelry was taken. A second home which was vacant, was also burglarized on or around February 11th. The homeowner of the vacant home did not report any items missing. It is believed that the same person is responsible for committing both crimes. Police Chief Rich Zavinsky has requested that residents report anyone, whom they do not recognize, to the police department. Zavinsky stated, "although we have taken a number of steps to apprehend the burglars, Rochelle Park, along with several other nearby communities are still experiencing a rash of burglaries."

It has been quite some time since our last update. We understand that everybody has hectic schedules and I personally apologize that I have not been able to update our website. I/We have been continuing to send out some e-mails and unfortunately it is time for a CRITICAL “SAVE PARAMUS WETLANDS” Update.
Many have observed or reported that trees have been cut down on the “Enchantment” property off of Soldier Hill Road. This was very sad to hear and see.

When the time comes to price your home for sale, you may be tempted to start with the price you paid for it, add a healthy markup and call it a day. Unfortunately, that strategy is unlikely to result in a true reflection of your home's market value.
Here are six strategies to help you figure out how much your home is worth:
1. Abandon your personal point of view. How much will a ready, willing and able buyer be willing to pay for your home? Buyers DON'T care how much you paid for the home, how many memorable moments you and your family shared in the home, how much cash you need for the downpayment on your next home or how much time and money you've invested in your home's hardwood floors, fresh paint, lush landscaping or other improvements.
