Re: Is Jersey City Real Estate in a bubble?

Bubble? You got to look at the economics:
- Proximity to greatest city on the planet: no. JC is cheap.
- Interest rates on mortgages: as cheap as they've ever been. So no.
- Demand - Millenials want to rent, Overseas investors want to buy. So Debatable.
- History - on zillow - looks like there's been a 20-30% pop on prices in the past 2-3 years. Bubble - probably not. But I wouldn't bet your retirement on it.

Is there a bubble in JC? IMO you've probably missed the opportunity. Dollar will fall, interest rates will rise...entirely my guess though....make your own guesses. That's how it works.

Does anyone actually net cashflow from these properties? When I've looked at the numbers the GRM's are astronomical, indicating they are more market speculation than B&H investing. I asked this question a couple of months ago and got market opinions but none based on numbers.

Yes.

There are some preliminary plans to add seawalls for JC and Hoboken. It'd cost $2 billion, so it must include federal money. However, don't expect any solutions any time soon, it takes years just to get approval, and years to build.

Just can't stay away


To determine whether there is a bubble at this specific point in Jersey City history, you really need to know how many CONDO units are owned by investors. I believe it's a fairly high percentage from what I've read & heard.

There were an average of 150 rental units added to the downtown market per year from 2008 through 2013. From mid-2015 to mid-2016, there will be that many units added, on average, every 2 weeks.

When the supply of rental units increases that dramatically, that increases competition among owners of rental units. Many investors who own condos that they are renting out may begin to lose money on their properties due to competition from a drop in net effective rents at large rental buildings, and this may prompt them to sell. This could potentially cause a flood of investor-owned condos to come onto the for-sale market, and the increased competition may burst the bubble.

Interesting how police in general use CCTV, dash-cams, body-cams, drones and the like to use against perps and do general surveillance, but when the camera is focused on them its a case of 'shock and horror' how dare you!

Camera's don't lie, individuals do, so more cameras for me!

Considering 7 cops (and counting) have been injured in the ongoing Black race riots currently taking place in Baltimore, count me on the side of giving police a lot of leeway.

Exactly! How exactly would this work on a light rail system that relies on user honesty?? Already, as it is, tons of people ride the Light Rail without paying, so if you make it so people can use a mobile device to "display" a ticket, how will they prevent fare beaters from not using the app to simply "activate" or "purchase" a ticket once on board if a fare enforcement officer happens to show up?

Collectively, we ask and expect a lot from the police and other law enforcement officers. We should accord them some respect and civility. It shouldn't be a one way street, nor should it be a perpetual "us vs. them" attitude.

NEWARK — The 19-year-old AirTrain monorail system at Newark
Liberty International Airport is being targeted for replacement.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has not publicly
estimated the cost of a new system, or said when it expected the
project to begin or end. But Port Authority commissioners are
scheduled to vote Thursday to authorize spending $40 million on
planning consultants for the project, plus another $30 million
on technical experts.


"Although substantial investment has been made to maintain
current operations, such investment has not extended the 25-year
design life of the system, nor has it expanded capacity," states
the planning resolution proposed for adoption Thursday.

The agency plans to ask the Federal Aviation Administration for
permission to use $40 million in airline ticket surcharges to
offset the planning cost.

The 3-mile system carries about 30,000 passengers a day between
terminals A, B and C, the airport's parking and rental car lots,
and a station linking the airport to NJ Transit trains along the
Northeast Corridor line.

A 2011 report by the Regional Plan Association, a transportation
research organization, recommended replacing the monorail system
as part of a broader plan to expand the region's airport capacity.
The RPA report criticized the AirTrain as slow and unable to
accommodate growth.

The AirTrain, which is free within the airport, has been
characterized by service interruptions due to power failures,
accidents and maintenance. Last summer, the AirTrain was closed
for two months to fill what were essentially 60 potholes in the
steel and epoxy running surface. The weight of the cars is born
by rubber tires that roll on the running surface.

The AirTrain system first opened in 1996 at a cost of $354 million,
built by a company that is now a subsidiary of the Canadian
aircraft and rail car maker Bombardier, which operates the monorail
under a contract with the Port Authority through 2022.

In 2001, the system was linked to a heavy rail station just north
of Newark Liberty, where fliers and airport workers can transfer
between the monorail and NJ Transit trains heading in an out of
Newark Penn Station. The monorail was also expanded from 12 cars
to 18.

Thursday's authorization votes come four months after the Port
Authority issued its first contract for preliminary work to
extend the PATH commuter rail system from Newark Penn Station to
the airport rail station, a project estimated to cost $1.5 billion.

The PATH extension is among 11 major projects, along with hundreds
of less costly ones, included in a 10-year, $27.6 billion Port
Authority capital plan approved by the agency in February 2010.

However, like a new Port Authority Bus Terminal projected to
cost $8-10 billion, a new AirTrain is not included in the capital
plan, suggesting agency officials will have to come up with additional
revenues or spending cuts, to pay for it.


Port Authority officials did not respond to requests for comment
on Monday.

A report issued in December by the Special Panel on the Future of
the Port Authority, convened last year by Gov. Chris Christie and
Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, stresses the need to modernize and
expand capacity at Newark Liberty, John F. Kennedy International
and LaGuardia Airports, gateways to the region that have been
criticized as outdated.


"While some improvements have been made at these airports over the
past decade, many of these faciliites are outdated and ill-equipped
to meet the increased passenger demands of the future," the report
stated.

I suppose this will justify the looming increase of 9.9%. Make it easier to get the bus & train tickets for the buses & trains that are either discontinued or not showing up.

How refreshing to see politicians looking out for their constituency... Oh, wait. Never mind.

Seriously, the taxi service in JC is downright dangerous, not to mention criminally negligent and dominated by fraudulent drivers. Getting a cabbie to turn on the meter is damn near impossible, the condition of taxi cabs is pathetic, and the list of issues could go on forever. I haven't take a JC cab since Uber came to town. It is easy, affordable and 1,000 times better than riding a JC cab.

"In order to help aspiring entrepreneurs — from restaurant owners to high-tech movers and shakers — maximize their chances for long-term prosperity, WalletHub analyzed the relative start-up opportunities that exist in the 150 most populated U.S. cities. We did so using 13 unique metrics, ranging from 5-year survival rate and the affordability of office space to the educational attainment of the local labor force. Our findings, as well as expert commentary and a detailed methodology, can be found below."

Jersey City was highlighted for its most expensive office space and its lowest employee availability (employee availability is number of job openings minus number of unemployed residents). Newark had one of the least educated employee rates.

The city was hit yesterday with a gigantic explosion -- of cuteness.

At 11:15 p.m., a bomb squad inspected several suspicious packages left outside the police department's South District precinct -- which turned out to be full of cats, police reports say.

Two police officers found three medium-sized cardboard boxes and one large purple suitcase near the ramp leading into the police parking lot at 191 Bergen Ave., reports said.

The cardboard boxes were sealed with tape and the suitcase was closed, but all four had holes throughout, reports said.

Bomb techs inspected the packages and found eight live cats, who were "whiskered" away by the city's Office of Animal Control, reports said.

The eight adult cats were then brought to the Liberty Humane Society (LHS) animal shelter.
