Re: Several Affordable Housing Opportunities in Jersey City

I underwent a recent change in locale within JC. While there are some things I miss about my old location (HP), there have been many things I've been extremely pleased with and pleasantly surprised by in the new one (SPC). So, don't worry about missing stuff, because you'll come by new things you'll love.

OMG - hell hath definitely frozen over if Xerxes is willing to leave Newport.

The homes on Newark Ave are a good deal, and are hardly pioneering.

You do save a lot of $$ when you self manage. Assuming that option has been vetoed, I was very happy with RELB when I lived in a 15-unit Hoboken building.

Re: Where to have the best wedding reception?

I started this thread and just wanted to follow up. We had our wedding reception at The Embankment restaurant on 10th & Erie. It was awesome, the food was delicious, and everything ran smoothly. They have 3 suggested catering packages, but there is a lot of flexibility with the menus. Also, the space of the main room allows for a lot of creativity with the decor. The owner and wedding planner were incredibly helpful and detail oriented. I highly recommend it.

Actually, you're the newbie, fastus. Its says so right under your name. Embankment is my 2nd living room. It says so under my name. So given that you're a newbie, I'm guessing you have something positive to say.

Big UP to robt regarding the nail salon. I hadn't realized they went under and had booked a bridal party there. Thanks to the mention, I've had ample time to make other arrangements.

Are you sure about the nail salon? I just booked my bridal party to get mani/pedi's there.

As for The Embankment, they're doing a lot of private parties (weddings, showers, etc) now, which it appears other neighborhood restaurants don't do. So each business has a different niche.

I love The Embankment. I also really like newcomer Parkside Bistro.

JSantos,
As a recent shopper, I agree with you that the units at 333 Fairmount are gorgeous and the location is decent. However, the common charges of that building are high as the condo association and the developer are having massive financial problems and nearly went bankrupt. Getting a mortgage there will be difficult.

Recommendation: move closer to St. Peter's College.

Why do they have to be near Grove to cater to Newport + HP residents.

Well, if it makes people feel better, I live downtown and I never shop there. Or in Hamilton Park for that matter. Though I do patronize Basic and Cosi.

Re: How did you come to live in Jersey City?

Hello,
I was a long time Hoboken resident, 1989 - 2008, where I rented then owned a condo. When my boyfriend and I were looking to move in together, we decided to choose JC over Hoboken on the grounds of more space for the money. We moved to the Hamilton Park neighborhood in 10/08. I thought I'd never leave Hoboken and was amazed how quickly I fell in love with JC. I wish I'd moved here sooner.
Now we are about to get married and about to close on a condo by St Peters College, where we hope to remain for some time.

No because a) they may be in on it or get a cut b) are intimidated by it so keep their mouths shut.

I tried this place last night. Got 2 sandwiches and 2 sides to split with the huzzy. Maybe we've gone to Rub too many times, but we were not that impressed. And the pricing is too high for what we got.

Hamilton Park.

as to the person who said they could not sell with "the market the way it is" the typical length of time from listing to DABO in JC is only about 6 weeks, with desirable properties being as little as 1 - 2 weeks.

I think I may be able to shed some light on the price differential if you're talking about John Moss. He was already familiar with the building I'm moving into. That's not to say he wasn't thorough, just that when I told him the address over the phone, he already was able to describe the basement to me.

Tino, if you're moving into Crescent Court, not yet a known quantity for local inspectors, the price may be a littler higher. Just a guess.

Re: Condo Opinion

If you're able to back out by Friday, I don't believe you made it in time for the first time home buyer's rebate. You have to have been out of attorney review and in contract by 4/30/10. Then you have to close by 6/30/10.

If anyone told you otherwise, they are lying to sell you a condo.

Re: Can anyone recommend a condo management co.

They are pricey. In this case you get what you pay for.

Hidden fees? I would say they are more marked up than "hidden." As long as someone in the association goes over the statement each month you should not run into a problem. Also, they charge a lot for snow removal. However, your association is NOT required to use them for snow removal or garbage service or anything else..... you can still choose your own vendors. RELB offers different service plans depending on what your associations' needs are.

The history of the condo bldg I'm talking about is that it was self managed for 10 years. Then we tried Total Property Management ... but hated them. Then we switched to RELB about 5-6 years ago and have stuck with them ever since. They are *great* if you are doing some big projects on your building.

We used John Moss mid-April for a 900 sq ft condo by St. Peter's College. The price was $325. He was prompt and efficient.

Exactly! The housing market will have rebounded AND, with assessed values being reset, properties become even more desirable if fairly taxed.


What aggravates me about the re-eval though is that the burden is NOT evenly shared d/t abatements. Maybe I should've bought in The Soleil as we were told it has a 20 year abatement.

"Trust no one" is gonna become Jersey City's motto regarding taxes.

By the way, I think all the people in Hoboken who are assuming their taxes will go down after a re-eval are going to be in for a rude awakening.

Then gay people will move in.
Then the Orthodox Jews.
Then the gentrifiers.

And on and on it goes.

It is the cycle of this area. [tri-state area]

It is the Mother Nature of this area.


Oh wait, I got confused and started talking about Elizabeth + Asbury park. Nonetheless, reinforcing the cyclical nature of communities' rise and fall.
