So you've got softening demand plus increased supply...seems to be a good predictor of lower average RE prices through 2018.

Sure. But... so what?

DTJC prices have been on a tear for years. A 10-20% drop in prices will hurt, but it's not like thousands of DTJC sellers will be underwater.

The increase in supply will be short-lived, probably most of 2019. I for one doubt that supply will vastly outstrip demand in the short term, and definitely not in the long term. (There are currently 170 units for sale in 07302; let's see how that changes over the next 3 years....)

Oh, and DTCJ != All Of JC. Other neighborhoods, some of which are already gentrifying, should see reductions in their property taxes, which should mean a rise in demand and their home values.

http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/RevaluationUpdate

if you click "1-4 family neighborhood analysis" on the bottom of the page, it opens a PDF with average tax increases by neighborhood. Downtown JC taxes are looking to go up by 50% (unless I'm misinterpreting the table). But...tell me again how the housing prices won't be affected by this?

I'll give it a whirl

Let's start by looking at the aggregate. Most of downtown is underpaying property tax; most of the rest of JC is overpaying property tax. DT buildings will pay more (as noted above, 50-75% seems likely) -- but property taxes will drop in other parts of town. On average, it ought to more or less average out, especially for areas near JSQ which are starting to gentrify.


Next, let's look at a situation where property taxes will increase by what we expect is a typical amount (around 60%).

We'll look at a DTJC single-family home on the market for $1.5 million. 3 beds, 2 baths, backyard, renovated etc. Assuming 20% down, a likely monthly mortgage payment is $5500/month. Property taxes are $10,000 per year. Their annual costs are $76,000 per year.

After the reval, they will now pay $24,000 per year. Their annual housing costs are now $90,000 a year. That's an increase of $1160/month. I can see how that can cause someone to seriously consider moving.

If we try to offset the entire cost of property taxes by reducing the home price, and thus the mortgage, the new price would be around $1.2 million.

At the same time, property taxes in other parts of JC will fall, and presumably become more attractive.

Will the owner drop the price by nearly 20%? That's certainly possible. Would the owner be upset? Probably. However, that's also only about 1 year of unrealized gains, and a much softer blow than 2007-2008.

However, inventory in DJTC is still very tight. My understanding is that demand vastly outstrips supply, and properties don't remain on the market long. I suspect that some buyers are discouraged by the lack of inventory, and look elsewhere. If inventory increases in 2019, those properties will be snapped up quickly, and prices will resume their upward trend. Demand may be so high that prices drop far less than 20% -- or might not drop at all.


Another way to put this is: The lack of revaluations over the years has caused home prices to become unfair and inequitable. DTJC real estate values are higher than they ought to be, and other areas are lower than they ought to be, because DT owners have received a tax break at the expense of their poorer neighbors. The reval could make both property tax and home values more fair overall.

The arithmetic is simple: 10 car trains run every 3 minutes, carry 90% more passengers than 7 car trains every 4 minutes. And the 25-30 minute trip time EWR to WTC is roughly equal to JSQ - 33rd St. Yes, almost double the capacity….

Expect NJ and PA Officials to be very circumspect in their public statements about this plan – even to the extent of making outright mis-statements about the facts. Why? Because if NY thought for a second there was a way to completely get rid of the PABT, they’d be all over it instantly.

What the what?

Gordon is talking about a contingency plan in the event of a major catastrophe -- one of the Amtrak tunnels failing before a replacement can be put into place. If that happens, all NJ commutes will be a total disaster. He is not making a proposal for normal commuting patterns.

In terms of cars, guess that? PA is already expanding all lines to 10 cars, and is being very public about it.

In terms of frequency, guess what? PA is already working on that. The new signaling system should allow trains to operate closer together. PA is public about this as well.

In terms of PA playing hush hush... Aren't you pointing to an article reporting a state Senator discussing a big plan? In public? Where anyone can read it?

Maybe you should actually read the article again. The only reason Gordon is discussing this is because he's concerned that the Gateway project won't be done in time.

Yeah, thing is? The push for marijuana legalization is largely coming from citizens, not elected officials. Citizens want the laws to change, and have wanted those laws to change for years. The legislators, and now governor, are responding to their constituents. That's how a representative democracy is supposed to work.

In addition, marijuana is very different than other drugs. Unlike opiates or stimulants or alcohol, it is not habit forming. You can't overdose from marijuana. You can't die from the effects of marijuana. Marijuana does not cause acute toxicity. Evidence does not show that marijuana smoke is carcinogenic. It's not completely harmless, but it's substantially less harmful than pretty much every other recreational drug.


Quote:
I am more accepting of the argument to decriminalize possession rather than listening to a pro-legal point of political view that talks about all the new tax revenues.

OK, how about this?

"Marijuana prohibition is not working, and enforcing those laws causes all sorts of harm to American citizens, especially in minority communities which already have enough issues relating to law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Marijuana itself causes minimal harm, and has some potential health benefits in certain situations. It should never have been outlawed in the first place. We can take steps to mitigate some of the potential issues, such as establishing laws against operating vehicles or heavy machinery under the influence, and barring access by anyone under 21. Plus, if we legalize it, the state can collect tax revenues."

Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

AirBnB has absolutely nothing to do with any housing crunch in JC.


Data disagrees with you.

You sure about that?

The BI article is not exactly a resounding attack, as it openly admits that "it not possible to say definitively that Airbnb puts up the price of rents and properties." The closest it comes is repeating a report written by Mobilization for Justice (not exactly neutral when it comes to housing/gentrification). It claims that adding the 8000 "Impact Listings" units to the rental pool would increase the vacancy rate to 4%. Even if their claim is correct, the idea that a mere 8000-unit increase would make a serious dent in rents in NYC is laughable.

The Guardian article contains no data, just anecdotes that Air is allegedly ruining New Orleans. Meanwhile, checking zip code 70116 on Zillow shows rental prices peaking in 2014, and dropping about 15% since then; 70117 (Bywater) is basically flat. While this is obviously a crude analysis, perception does not quite mesh with reality. (This is why we should actually pay attention to data rather than anecdotes.)

The 3rd paper is pretty solid. However, it's not an attack either. The authors conclude that Air might raise costs slightly, but also enhances the value of homes; they're not sure of the overall effects.

But what happens when we look at JC? Rental prices actually decreased in 07302, peaking at $2875 in August 2015, and is currently at $2686. Does that mean a bunch of Air rentals closed up shop? No, it means that an effect that small is basically noise in markets as complex and volatile as JC.

Now, in a city like San Francisco, where the vacancy rate is around 1.2%, and there's a ton of units on Air, it's probably an issue. NYC, with a 3.6%... maybe. In Jersey City, even DTJC, with a 12% vacancy rate? Highly unlikely.

I'm not saying that AirBnB is the most awesome amazing thing ever. I wouldn't be too happy if someone tried to turn my building into a hotel. What I'm saying is that blaming AirBnB for housing problems in JC doesn't add up. It's just a convenient punching bag, for people who don't want to face the fact that the only solution is to build more affordable units in JC.

Oooookay

First of all, alcohol is taxed at 12 cents a gallon for beer, 87.5 cents for wine, spirits $5.50.

Second, both governments and pro-pot advocates are openly saying they could use this to raise taxes.

Third, spending levels haven't changed much in NJ since at least 2009.

Finally, feel free to go over the NJ budget and tell us all what ought to be cut. You know that property tax relief is a huge chunk of spending, right? Maybe we can cut education spending, perhaps? Police? CHIP?

AirBnB has absolutely nothing to do with any housing crunch in JC.

There are over 110,000 housing units in Jersey City. About 300 of them are listed on AirBnB. That's less than 0.3% of all housing units.

The real issue in JC is the same as the area as a whole, namely a lack of affordable housing. The only real option is to build a ton of affordable units. Needless to say, that's not the easiest thing to do in an area that is already developed, and where the locals are not exactly thrilled by the idea of adding more high-density buildings.

The Senate bill left the $1m interest deduction in-place, and 10k in SALTs. If passed, RE prices won't tank on policy.

Think Dolomiti is right, JC property prices will continue to be driven by supply and demand.


Most things I've read indicate exactly the opposite:

"The bill, if enacted into law, could send home prices tumbling 10 percent or more in parts of the New York area, according to one economic analysis. "

How New Yorkers Would Lose Under the Republican Tax Bill https://nyti.ms/2nst8oG

I don't think that prices will drop 10%. But the uncertainty is enough to drive prices down in the short term IMO.

The law is definitely much more likely to pass now than when I wrote that. Even so, the bill is not finished, and may not be as big a hit as some people fear.

The current plan is to allow a $10,000 deduction in property taxes, and interest on mortgages up to $500,000. This could change at any moment, but let's assume it will be something along those lines, or worse.

On one hand, even with the property tax deduction, this is going to hurt -- particularly with the reval. Quite a few large properties will have bigger property tax deductions, and mortgages over $500k.

On the other, this is not happening in a vacuum. It's happening right next to Manhattan, and in an area with very little inventory. What this means is that more people will get priced out of Manhattan, and will be looking at JC.

It's going to suck for a lot of current JC residents (including me) who will get hit with higher taxes. It will likely force more than a few home sales. But overall, I don't think it will make a serious dent in DTJC prices, especially in the longer term.

If they started charging $10 per fare, ridership will plummet, which will reduce revenue overall and make the system significantly less efficient. And let's face it, there are lots of people who will ride the PATH, even at $10. They'll just be really, really pissed off about it, and bombard the governor's office non-stop.

Even if it did happen somehow, that change will slam other transit systems, primarily the HBLR and MTA. It will outrage commuters on both sides of the river. It will outrage Wall Street and other firms, whose employees will complain about the changes in commutes.

Yes, it does get busy and crowded around 8:15 - 9:15, and I've had some unpleasant commutes, but it's rare that I can't get onto a train. I have never even considered riding out to JSQ first.

The new signal system should be in operation soon, and that will allow more trains to run. They're expanding platforms to allow 10-car trains on all lines. Although I don't expect it to happen any time soon, they could switch to accordion-style cars that increase capacity by 10%.

And let's get a little perspective. We aren't in Tokyo, we don't have subway pushers. Rush hour on the PATH is definitely not fantabulous, the system definitely has problems, but it also isn't the nightmare some people claim, and isn't going to explode because one more person tries to commute during rush hour.

Hoboken hadn't done a reval in 25 years, and there's no question that properties faced increases in property taxes. What protected Hoboken's property values overall are the same factors that will protect JC's values overall: A lack of inventory, and stupendous RE prices in Manhattan ($1790/sq ft, vs JC's $472).

Oh, and don't forget, a lot of people's property taxes are going to drop. That should increase their property values, no...?

Someone's an optimist ;)

I don't see any indication of a major economic slowdown any time soon. Of course, anything could happen, but it's not like we are scheduled to have a recession in early 2019.

The reval is not going to kill real estate prices. Just look at Hoboken, property values have consistently risen since 2012, despite a big reval.

The current tax reform plan is probably the only real issue here. However, the bill is very far from a done deal, as is completely killing off SALT. (E.g. the House wants to keep $10k of the SALT deduction.) Keep in mind that the pressure to pass tax reform is equaled by the pressure to repeal the ACA, and that also failed.

Despite that change, though, it doesn't alter the fundamental dynamic driving up real estate prices in much of JC: Demand vastly outstrips supply. So much of JC is rental that there is almost no inventory. For every 1 buyer discouraged by an increase in costs, there are 2 willing to take their place.

As we know there is a reval around the corner and Dixon Advisory owns hundreds of properties that have all seen “gorgeous” renovations. Dixon are looking at a collective tax increase in the millions and will do anything they can to reduce this, thus maximizing profits for themselves and their Australian shareholders while actual residents will be forced to pay more.

So what?

There's nothing she can do to reduce Dixon's property tax bills. The reval is already happening. It can't be stopped. We know what buildings Dixon owns. The valuation and property tax bill will be public. The Council can't change those valuations. The Council isn't going to give Dixon properties a bunch of after-the-fact abatements, either.

Not much to cover.

Results are starting to come in.
