Could we moderate these sexist remarks coming from Earthling? It's quite offensive and no one cares whether Candice is a man or woman or what her social media or whatever reveals.

I have contacted Candice for issues and she has been responsive.

@Terrence McDonald, what is the Councilwoman's response to not enforcing her own ordinance and passing the buck to businesses?


The councilwoman told business owners last week that she wants and has asked for more enforcement. She said it's the admin that has said on-duty officers are needed elsewhere.


So the closest precinct to DTJC is sending officers to other areas of JC?

Bars are responsible for people they serve alcohol to and then go on to show anti-social behavior? Really?

Are doctors or pharmacies responsible for the individuals who voluntarily overdose? Where is this doctor/pharmacy tax?

An EXTRA tax to have cops do their job??? I didn't know crime could only be reported 9-5. Please don't tell criminals.

Is there an extra fire tax for fires which happen at midnight?

How stupid is this line of thinking.....

Yvonne - those gay people you rented to - did you ask them if they were sexually active? Cause if you did not and they are, you are providing them with a huge opportunity to "live in sin" as you may call it. Much more directly than any baker. I think you should think about it and ask for forgiveness.

In other news, a Jehova witness who makes it through medical school and training sues jersey city medical center because they are forcing him to give a blood transfusion to a patient. Local resident Yvonne argues that the Jehova witness has rights too!

The ultimate sign of privilege is complaining about having to watch streets filled with people on the weekends visiting restaurants and god forbid, LEGALLY drink alcohol and yes, LEGALLY be intoxicated and walk home.

Last time I checked, harassment by drunk individuals in Hoboken is NOT AN EPIDEMIC and is not increasing every year. What has gone down over the past 10-12 years in DTJC? VIOLENT CRIME.

What Dan L and others here recall from 10-12 years ago about DTJC more diversity and more art and culture and all that stuff is fictional. It stems from the "I can't afford to live in the area anymore" disease. Please get that checked out.

The DTJC of 10-12 years ago was pretty crappy with fear of muggings and harassment from criminals up and down newark ave.

If you want the DTJC of 12 years ago, go to greenville.

Here is a time tested method. Look at the MLS, call up the listing broker and ask whether they prefer you work with them to buy a home that they are selling or whether it would be prudent to bring in an agent yourself.

100% of listing agents will say, "oh no, I can be your agent too" - even our resident realtor who is posting on this forum. Money talks...

As an investor in properties throughout the US, I would ALWAYS recommend you get a buyer's agent and here is why:

What does it mean as a dual agent? This means that he/she cannot advise on negotiating ANYTHING for the buyer. Ultimately the sellers agent duty is only to the SELLER, but he/she must treat the buyer fairly and still disclose information REQUIRED BY LAW.

If you have a buyer's agent, you now have someone who can help negotiate for you. If they hear from other agents that the seller is distressed, is willing to take a lower price, or any other information that can affect the price, THEY CAN share it with you to help negotiate. Again, the seller's agent can only share information he/she is REQUIRED to disclose by law. Plus, a buyer's agent will know what a property SHOULD be priced at according to the market, not based on some arbitrary price that most sellers force agents to list at.

As far as commissions go, you have NO ABILITY to negotiate a lower commission from the sale of the home as a buyer. Actually, neither a sellers agent or a buyers agent can kick you back any money from a transaction because it would be a violation of Federal and State Law. The listing contract is between the seller and the seller's agent and can only be modified by mutual consent. Only if you hold a real estate license from any state can you ask for a referral fee. I hold one in another state for just that reason.

My recommendation is definitely GET A BUYERS AGENT. You DON'T have to sign an exclusive unless you're very comfortable with the agent and they're working really hard to find you the right place. Just remember that agents are only paid on commission, so all that time they spend taking you around to properties, doing research, etc. is UNPAID unless you contract through them.

A smart agent will ask as soon as possible if you are working with another agent. That way each of you don't waste each other's time.



thanks REALTOR. Guess who realtors - buying and selling - represent most often and have a loyalty to more so than anyone else? THEMSELVES. Guess what the goal of a realtor is - to sell homes. Not to sell the home of your dreams. Guess what happens when the deal closes and you are not happy with the home you bought? The realtor still gets to keep his or her commission.

A realtor is a glorified door opener and chauffeur. Can you name one type of information that as a home buyer - you don't have access to that realtors do?

Price comps - Available
Listings - Available
Neighborhood crime stats - Available
Restaurants in the area - Available
Building & home history - Available

Now if you want a person to pressure you to buy a home so they can make 3% as a buyer's agent then go right ahead. But getting all the info you need is readily available. PLUS, your realtor is not required to give you all the above info that I mentioned. You can ask and your realtor can pick and choose that info. AGAIN, a realtor's main goal is to sell homes and whether you like it or dislike it afterwards, the realtor still gets paid.


This is why being an informed buyer using the sellers agent works. I'll give a concrete example.

Home is listed for 100,000. Seller's agent gets 3% commission when split or full 6% if they represent the seller and buyer.

If they represent you (buyer) and sell the home at 95k, they get 5700. OR you can bring in a realtor and they sell at 100k and they get 3k.

The realtor selling the home earns more money convincing the homeowner to sell at 95k than at 100k. You (the buyer) benefits.

Simple math. Done.
]

I'm a realtor. I don't see why someone would go direct to the listing agent. Although dual agency is common, how can one person have the best interest of two parties in mind? It's inherently a conflict.

Your logic is flawed and many people assume that this is the way it works. A listing agent isn't going to "sell" a lower offer; although they're not supposed to, they may tell you where the offer needs to be in order to win the bid. At the end of the day, you're going to pay fair market for the property. What does happen sometimes is that the listing agent will take a lower percentage if they represent both parties. Thats almost always a 1% discount to the seller.

Working with a *good* buyers agent definitely has it's benefits. I work in a large office downtown and I have access to many listings before they hit the market. Since it's become such a sellers market, more and more deals are getting done off market. Additionally, most properties that hit the market have multiple offers within days; there are many ways to make an offer more attractive - it's not just purchase price that a seller is looking for (although that is obviously at the top of the list). A good agent will help you navigate that process.

It's not like YOU are paying the agent as a buyer, so why not take advantage of their dedication and market knowledge?



Interesting you used the word flawed and not incorrect. Everything I've said is absolutely true. Realtors get paid on selling homes, not selling at market price, not selling an ideal home, not selling the dream home.

If a realtor convinces a seller to sell below market price, does the realtor still get the commission? The answer is yes and you know this.

An uninformed seller (one that trusts the realtor) really doesn't know what fair market price is. What we are comparing is a 0% commission (not selling a home) to a full (many times 6%) or half of a commission (3%).

You have a direct feed to the mind of sellers before they decide to sell their home and list on the MLS (which again is public). Similar to how stock brokers have industry knowledge about when a stock will rise in price and go down in price? You must be a millionaire. The "process" of buying a home is not brain surgery. You do not need a buying agent to buy a home. It's like needing an agent to buy a car.

I do agree that selling is rather complicated and time consuming (made this way by the realtor lobby) so this is where having a selling agent makes sense (as long as you make the decisions, not the realtor).

" there are many ways to make an offer more attractive"
Here is a comprehensive list of ways to make yourself more attractive to a seller (given to all of you commission free!):

1) Have good credit (higher = better)
2) Offer larger down payment
3) Offer more cash
4) Don't be an a*hole during the home inspection by asking the seller to repaint walls
5) Get out of attorney review
6) Sign contract prepared to you by sellers agent

You need a buyer's agent if
1) You need a chauffeur and no one that is a family/friend is available

2) You have trouble using GOOGLE

This is such a silly argument.

Unless you know what the billions of people on this Earth were doing for a period of time after 9/11, how can you say for certainty that NO ONE cheered?

Now, were there thousands and thousands in jersey City? No, that's a lie. Flat out lie. If you get rid of the words thousands and thousands and jersey city, then it could potentially happen.

My advice: Negotiate with the seller's agent directly. Have them be your realtor as well. The full 6% commission will motivate them to get you the best price possible so the sale closes. You will have more room to negotiate.

A buyer's realtor, at the end of the day, doesn't have your best interests in mind. They want to close the deal which may conflict with what they tell you about the house, neighborhood, etc.

The fact is, google can do what most realtors do. Gaining access to houses/buildings can be done via the seller's agent.

So throw all the money you want at the problem, engineer all sorts of different funding schemes, unless the nuclear family model begins to rise in the black community, student outcomes will never change. And people can scratch their heads or blame outside forces all they want.


Having children out of wedlock doesn't cause these outcomes. The absence of a stable financial income to support a family and time devoted to establishing a connection between caretaker/parent and child causes these outcomes.

The nuclear family is not the same nuclear family you envision of the 1950s. Studies have shown kids with two caretakers/parents are just as successful. In fact, parents who have grandmothers who are extremely involved with the family also raise children with better outcomes.

We should note that both are slightly safer than Manhattan.

The chance of being a victim of violent crime in Harrison is 1 in 222. In DTJC, it is 1 in 288.

Sorry, but that's incorrect. I'm not even sure how you came up with those numbers, unless you conflated a rate with absolute counts.

FYI, Journal Square has a higher crime rate than both of those areas, around 737 per 100k. For perspective, Camden is around 2,566 violent crimes per 100k.

You are slightly more likely to be the victim of a violent crime in DTJC than Harrison. Not much, just a little.

I don't think the difference is big enough to draw anyone to Harrison over DTJC. But people may currently prefer Harrison over Journal Square.



READ THE ENTIRE PAGE. sigh. The info is on the page

http://www.areavibes.com/harrison-nj/crime/

http://www.areavibes.com/jersey+city-nj/downtown/crime/

and it is absolute numbers. DTJC has twice the number of people as harrison which is a reason why there is more reported crime.

Here's a SIMPLE example. If there 50 murders in a town with 100 people or 600 murders in a town of a million people - which town would you live in???

Look at the chances of being a victim of violent crime and property crime in both areas.

If space is what you are looking for, I hear you can get a lot of space in tulsa oklahoma..

I know a colleague who moved from Manhattan back to the south with his family. I should mention that he got laid off...

So yeah, I guess it does depend on circumstances..


Did you even look at the numbers? Why did you post something that completely disproves your point? LOL


Downtown Jersey City:
Murders per 100,000: 8
Rapes per 100,000: 14
Assault per 100,000: 344
Violent crime per 100,000: 644

Harrison:
Murders per 100,000: 0
Rapes per 100,000: 0
Assault per 100,000: 222 (35% lower than downtown Jersey City's rate)
Violent crime per 100,000: 451

You are TOO funny.


As for condos coming online next year, Oakman is aiming for Dec 2016, and 213-215 Bay should be complete by that time too. It sounds like Gulls Cove II will be complete by Spring 2017, and Provost Square phase II is looking like early 2018.


You work for fox news? Way to distort the facts. First of all, there is more than two times more people in dtjc than harrison (15k versus 37k) so of course the overall number is lower.

What you want to know, and I said it in my earlier post, is the percentage of chance you are likely to be a victim. In harrison it is higher..

The chance of being a victim of violent crime in Harrison is 1 in 222. In DTJC, it is 1 in 288.

The chance of being a victim of crime in Harrison is 1 in 38. In DTJC, it is 1 in 74.
