Re: City Homes Westside Station S.O.S

Moxiebaby, just curious hOw many units in your building? We have 1 elevator, a porter, and a couple flower beds + hedges. No door service. I am paying $40 less than you. Perhaps our inexperienced board members are not accurately capturing our expenses. (fyi We have 40 units in our building and the property manager also services a sister building , so I guess it's 80 units). Is there a consultant that can advise what expenses we really need?

TommyC-37 I can recall when Newport mall and one residential highrise (I think Newport towers) was the only thing in dwntwn JC. In fact the hudson river then was a lot murkier. Hamilton park was not safe. Van worst park was considered the hood because of its close proximity to Booker T & Mintgomery projects, there are still low income housing units next to Van Worst park. Paulus Hook, was undeveloped and had its issues with contamination (as did Newport). The point being neighborhoods with access to water views seem to have a potential for development. Look at Bayonne, they seem to optimize the realestate around both rivers. I think we need to bribe the right government officials to focus more development on the Westside. That's where you'll find a lot of dedicated life long residents of JC that have paid there dyes in taxes. Taxes that help a lot of young professionals enjoy new parks, new developments and a bright housing market.

Neverleft i lived in JC for a longtime. Actually lived in country village prior to moving to city homes. Considered Society Hill but the convenience to the light rail and shavin 10 minutes off traffic on 440 because of all the traffic lights south of the Nissan Dealership seemed like a good deal at the time. Our association fee actually started in the mid 200's. After a year or so our board members realized Centex underestimated association costs. Our board members later unraveled unnecessary services being charged and certain things were not bein paid accordingly. As a result our financial status was dwindling and we needed to cover important costs that we fell behind on. Hence the increased association fee. It still doesn't make sense to me. With a housing market that left many new owners upside down how does this neighborhood expect to ever sell to break even let alone a profit. Its amazing how the mortgage companies/investment banks seemed to recover from the subprime market (AIG, Bofa, stocks are up)but the average person who was conned into these inflated prices will
Suffer financially for the rest of their lives. It makes me wonder if I can miraculously get approved for another mortgage and default on loft. Am I still responsible for any balances that were not covered under a shirts ale or foreclosure?

Jersey City has big plans for 100 acres on West Side along Hackensack River

As a life long resident of JC I am happy to see downtown JC develop to what it is today. Nice bars/lounges and decent restaurants, and a lot more young professionals , a scene reminiscent of Hoboken. However the time has come for the 6 th boro (lol jersey city) to expand its development to the other coast of JC. You guessed it the Westside. Finally some recent news on the web, more specifically a statement from Mr Mayor himself. An exciting plan to stimulate JC's economy and hopefully it's neighborhood. The Bayside redevelopment plan is up and away. Now is the time to Invest In this side of towN that every JC politician seems to neglect. Maybe one day I can proud to say yeah I live on the Westside of JC.

Thanks for the info. Fluctuation Definitely related to escrow and tax. Bofa insists because of new development can't pinpoint exact amount. Is this legit can they do that?

Not sure what the solution is. But I paid over 400k for my unit and I know of 3 larger units that were short sales or fore oeuvres that sold for mid 250k. We are trying to be financially responsible but it just doesn't seem fair. Why shouldn't we walk away everyone else doesn't want to be accountable. I wonder in the long run would it be best to simply walk away? My family could save the monthly mortgages, have our house foreclosed, and recover after 7 years with a significant downpayment. Does this make sense?

Not sure what that new building will be. I can tell you what's not being built. The Bayside Redevelopment Project. Whatever happened? I hope some of our politicians invest in the Westside of jersey city so we can get some progress going. Westside of Jersey City is definitely the neglected child in an area that has so much potential. How about getting rid of Hudson Mall and building outlets or higher quality stores.

Best hotdogs

For the record the best hotdogs in the area is Boulevard drinks. Flat top seared franks cooked to perfection and the chili/onions are amazing (sweet and spicy). Anybody think differently?

City Homes Westside Station S.O.S

Anyone live in this little community around city homes Westside station? Do you feel your association fee is overpriced considering there are no amenities? My understanding is there are 3 separate associations for a neighborhood that has a 5x2 block radius. I am paying over $400 dollars a month for snow removal, landscaping, and building maintenance(ie trash removal, common area upkeep). To make matters worse my building has a significant amount of short sales and foreclosures. Not to mention the taxes. I have a 30yr fixed loan but my mortgage fluctuates up to $500 dollars a month is this normal? SOS....SOS...anyone else having these same concerns? On the upside one of the incentives for purchasing in this area was the thought of the bayside redevelopment project. I think after 5 yrs the first sign of progress finally appeared. OAbbey's bar and grill..lol.
