We've been hearing people proclaim that Factor X will kill DTJC RE property values for years now. It's a bit old. Not to mention that we are specifically discussing the effects of the reval.

Yes, I know that getting calls from RE agents means nothing. So does one RE agent saying "single family homes are soft," or one single listing. That's why I'm saying you have to look at actual data, which a) shows no major drop in prices yet and b) shows that in the long term, prices are likely to hold or increase.

That's why we cannot rely on anecdotes, and have to look at actual data. So far, it shows an increase in inventory, and no change in prices. Long-term data from Hoboken after its reval shows very strong market values, too.

Society Hill was built more on landfill than a toxic refuse site, although I do recall the green, blue and purple guys in the dye joints across the way on 440.The chemical industry became really dangerous after WW2, and I think Roosevelt Stadium was built earlier. The shoreline still brings up glass bottles from the thirties and forties. We ate a lotta crabs from the river back in the fifties and I'm still around in good health in my late sixties.
The development will be a smart move for those who get in early. Waterfront property in the Metropolitan Area only gets pricier as time goes by.

JERSEY CITY -- It took only a few hours for a jury to deliver a guilty verdict for the 21-year-old charged with killing a man in broad daylight last year.

Dashawn Mixson faces up to life in prison for the March 28 fatal shooting of 19-year-old Dajour Riley on Union Street.

Nearby surveillance captured the 11:45 a.m. shooting. Riley's girlfriend, who was four months pregnant at the time, testified the two were leaving a doctor's office when a gunmen shot at Riley as he was in the front seat of his vehicle.

Here’s the section of the NJR I cited yesterday. Older NJR (New Jersey Register) records can be difficult to search, so I thought it could be helpful to post. The citation is 24 N.J.R. 739, Monday, March 2, 1992. Old NJR’s are cited by page, so you need to read the entire page to find the section of interest. They are on the web – in .pdf format – with text that can’t be searched by computer. Challenging to find what you need.

The response below is from the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) to a comment from the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) about the impact of Code updates. I’ve added the bold to highlight the clear guidance from DCA in response to the NJBA comment. The “retrofit” referred to are the requirements of the UFC, as the comment / response was in the context of proposed amendments to the UFC mandates. However, the guidance holds generally. If the work met current code requirements in effect at the time of construction or updating (rehab / installation) then you’re done – often shorthanded as “pre-existing condition.” If you do look it up, don’t be confused by the NJAC 5:18 reference. That section is the original UFC reference, subsequently renumbered to the current NJAC 5:70 reference in use today.

“RESPONSE: References to the Uniform Construction Code are made only for the purpose of establishing installation standards for required equipment and systems. These references avoid problems for construction officials, allow for advances in technology, and result in reduced confusion. Moreover, once a building has met the requirements of the retrofit and has received either a certificate of occupancy or a certificate of approval for the required systems, no further upgrading would be required because of a change in the Uniform Construction Code.”

In my limited experience with the JCFD inspectors, they're poorly trained. I wanted a definitive answer to where to place smoke and CO detectors in a unit, so I took a floor plan drawing to the firehouse and met with an inspector. Among other fuzzy comments, she said there should be a monoxide detector in the kitchen in case the pilot light goes out. I gently pointed out that if the pilot goes out, there's no combustion, and CO was created by incomplete combustion. She had no idea really where CO came from.

For the record, CO detectors are required outside bedroom doors.

Yes because when the rest of state funds most of JC's education budget, you morons don't realize that the more you cry about your absurdly low tax rate, the more the state is going to look at it and say "heeeeey wait a minute, why are we still paying for their shitty schools?" It can only go up from here so enjoy the relatively free ride while it lasts. The tax rate, under that circumstance, will continue to be discussed as nauseum until you people get it and STFU about your taxes going up from the reval.

The city needed collect X amount of money.

X = (total value of market) * (tax rate)

The only thing that would make a difference is how different areas stack or compare against each other. The almost four year delay in the reval actually helped DTJC, as that period saw an accelerated increase in valuation in areas outside of DTJC, which translated into properties outside of DTJC getting relative higher levies than they would have 5 years ago.

In any case, the timing matters little. The reval was overdue, and DTJC was in for a HUGE increase regardless of when the reval had been completed. Those who claim the timing was terrible because it is a high market don't understand the issue clearly.



No I completely understand the market - DTJC assessed at the highest values ever with no regard for corresponding drop in market value after taxes double and no guidance moving forward.

Yes it was way overdue and definitely not fair for residents in other words to overpay for years, but also not fair to saddle downtown with absurdly high taxes with no clear plan to reassess more regularly in the future.


They're not "absurdly high taxes"; they're exactly the taxes one should pay for a residence in a particular market. Also, at a rate of 1.62% is still one of the lowest tax RATES in the entire state. Try paying 2.3% or whatever the state average is, on these valuations, then I'd say whoa. But again, there are options: reverse mortgages, the senior freeze, etc.


Are you still going to bang the drum on tax rates? It has been discussed at nauseam. They mean nothing! Here it is again. A town with high market values has a low tax rate. A town with depressed values has a high tax rate! Just imagine if the reval was done 8 years ago. The rate would have been over 2%.

Correct, any 3 or more, multi-family building built before the UCC came into effect in 1977 was required by the introduction of the NJ UFC (aka “retrofit” code, NJAC 5-70:1-4) in the mid/late 1980’s to be “upgraded” with various fire safety features. There had been several tragic fires, with multiple fatalities, in older buildings and the State introduced the UFC to upgrade the safety of older housing stock. The Code in effect when the UFC was introduced was the BOCA code, 1984 and 1987 editions. The UFC was amended several times shortly after introduction, and in the meantime the BOCA code was also updated, thus, the two applicable editions. An owner had to do the work to keep their green card. If they didn’t, then the building became unregistered and illegal for renting.

So if we think of a hypothetical JC brownstone, typical construction and layout, originally constructed in 1890 and converted to a 4-family in 1925, that building was mandated to be “retrofitted” by the UFC in the late 1980’s. Once that work was done on the building, inspected and passed, that was it – it had met the requirements of the UFC. It wasn’t required to have further upgrades – I gave you the citation to the NJR previously – just because a new code edition was released subsequently. However, if “rehabilitation” work is done on the building, that does trigger the need for updates to current codes – I’m oversimplifying for the sake of brevity, but see the rehab code for details (NJAC 5:23-6, et seq.)

What is NOT supposed to happen to that 4 family brownstone that met the UFC requirements in the late 1980’s and hasn’t had any “rehab” work since, is for an Inspector to come along and say, “Oh, now we have a new code, the 2006 UCC, and you don’t meet the requirements, so you need to do X, Y and Z.” But lots of Inspectors do it, and the JCFD does it. No one understands the rules, and the Inspectors pick home owners off in small numbers over time, so they get away with it…. But it isn’t what the Regulations permit or require.

This is why it is essential to know the specific edition of code that applies to your building – so you can push back if they ask for something crazy that comes from some later code edition. That said, for the simple, inexpensive, sensible stuff, I used to just do it anyway, even if it wasn’t actually “required” according to a correct application of the correct code edition. For the sprinkler I drew the line because of the costs and heavy-handed, threatening and intimidating way the FD approached me. They acted more like thugs than professional law enforcement officers and all the while they were wrong.

Except that feel good sentiments like this don't exist in the real world. Again, and again, and again...every day that poor senior downtown, sitting on a million dollar plus valuation, is delaying their FAIR increase, actual poorer folks are over paying (I'm generalizing - yes, not everyone getting a decrease is poor. It's a relative point). Can you really sit there and tell me that someone who can sell their place today for over a million bucks NET should get an extension over the person in Greenville or BL who lives paycheck to paycheck barely making ends meet? Because I can guarantee you there are more of the latter than the former. And the reval will provide relief to far more people than will be hurt by it. That's a fact.

It's easy to say it's not about the bucks when you've been getting a deep discount on the backs of so many for so long. Funny how a largely democrat population, sanctuary city and all that nonsense, recoils when it's time to pay their FAIR share (spare me. I know not every person affected is a democrat.

This “Windowless basement” violation is a complete, total racket, and has been for 30 years. I’ve left you a lengthy pm with additional details.


I doubt anyone would object to your posting your lengthy pm here, I'm real interested in this subject! The state seems to have no qualms about citations on long existing conditions in Greencarded buildings, like suddenly requiring handrails on basement hatch steps or exterior backyard lighting. If the city is getting into the game, that's going to be a hassle. I think I've had one fire inspection in 20 years.


Brewster, thanks for the kind invitation but I am sure you'll understand if I politely decline.

The correct approach is as I outlined – if a building or installation met code (was inspected and passed) at the time of construction / installation then that’s the end of it. The State, Fire Department, City can’t at some later point arbitrarily require you to meet the requirements of a newer Code version, just because it’s available - see 24 N.J.R. 739. You have to be doing rehab, or some work on the building, to trigger the application of new code requirements.

Nevertheless, I typically take a fairly pragmatic approach to simple “violations.” For less expensive, easy to “fix” things that make sense – handrails on stairs, easily installed lights and so on I’ll just do it, but I always look the inspector directly in the eye and cordially ask which edition of the UCC (NOT NJAC section) is he or she using? In my experience, that’s been sufficient to politely signal you know the game and put an end to the nonsense.

The windowless basement “violation” is a whole other matter…. The FD tried this on me a few years ago. There’s real money in it, sometimes even a building on the cheap. Sprinklers are expensive and can be destructive to install in an old building – even if only in the basement, and can require periodic inspections ($), testing (more $) and on and on. Moreover the City and Fire Department also want you to install a centrally monitored alarm as well. More on-going, subscription costs – every month, forever. Big bucks.

When they tried to make me do this a few years ago, I refused and went to Court. Sounds they are still at it, attempting to intimidate people into retrofitting basement sprinklers, or worse…? Long and short of it, the FD withdrew the violation – they knew they were wrong. My old building had been retro-fitted at the time to meet the requirements of the UFC when it was introduced (mid/late 80’s). Nothing had been done subsequently to the building to trigger the application of any newer Code edition that required sprinklers or a monitored alarm. If I had “rehabbed” the building, then yes, the requirements of the Code in effect when the “rehab” was undertaken would have to be met.

I finally had enough of the City and State's nonsense, and as you may recall - I posted here some time ago - when the reval became a done deal, I sold the building. And I'm not sorry about it at all.

Feel free to ask any questions and I’ll do my best to provide concise and accurate responses to the best of my knowledge.

Yes it was way overdue and definitely not fair for residents in other words to overpay for years, but also not fair to saddle downtown with absurdly high taxes with no clear plan to reassess more regularly in the future.


A couple of thoughts:
- if values are to drop because of a tax increase, wouldn't the same be true regardless of whether this is a high or low market?

- there IS guidance in place: a revaluation is legally mandated every 10 years. The citizenship should demand that is followed.

- Downtown is not being saddled with absurdly high taxes: they are being assessed the proper taxes, and they only seem high now because they were undertaxed for so long.

- agreed, there is no clear plan to reassess regularly, but there is a law that dictates that to be the case. Citizens can and should demand that future city administrations stick to the law.

- if DTJC loses value, whatever properties come on the market will likely be snapped up by other people. Local inventory is extremely low, although we are definitely seeing more properties being listed, presumably from homeowners who can't, or refuse to, pay the new taxes.

- one final thought: if a market correction takes place, areas outside of DTJC will suffer a much bigger impact. It is always that way. Areas like BeLa were experiencing good progress and gentrifying nicely when the market tanked in 2007/2008. It took over 7 years before it started to regain its footing, and valuation recovering to pre-recession levels. As such, DTJC will continue to retain its value vis-a-vis non-DTJC areas, so taxes wouldn't need to be adjusted.
