Regardless of how anyone may feel about the show, or its star, the truth is that the city handled this poorly.

And, Steve Fulop should do more than just blast the legal department via Twitter.


He said that that the law would be rewritten on Twitter. Not sure what else he can do. He can't just make a new law on his own - that's what the council is for.

Anyone still not get the channel after the re-scan? All of my 4.x channels are crap now. Used to be clear as day.

NJ is state hardest hit by new tax laws
#7

http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/ ... than_any_other_state.html

The Tax Policy Center, a research group, says in a new report that 10.2 percent of New Jersey households will see their federal income taxes go up this year under the Republican tax measure.

That's in large part due to the law's $10,000 cap on the deduction for state and local income, property and sales taxes.

New Jersey was the only state where the percentage of those facing a tax hike reached double digits.

it's not just the tax reval that affect DTJC home prices. It's the tax reval in conjunction with the cap on SALT income tax benefits.

The jitney from NYC to paterson runs at all hours of the night. I've taken it in the wee hours before. Perhaps you can take that to JFK Blvd and 32nd street, and then take an Uber from there up in the direction of Fort Lee? It's cheaper than taking an Uber from the city.

You assume that every taxpayer owns a home or lives in a state with out of control fiscal "challenges" and liabilities like NJ.


325M people in the US

20M in NY
9M in NJ
3.5M in CT
40M in CA
-------
72M (about 22% of the population living in high tax states)

from NJ.com today, about 60% of people own homes in NJ. Assuming that's the same in the other 3 states, then 13% of the US population owns a home in a high tax state. That's over 1 in 8 people nationwide...not an insignificant # by any means.

if the judgment amount is indeed the starting price for the auction, and no one bids that amount (most of the listings I glanced at seemed to have a judgment amount that was way too high for me to bid on), does the property just get re-listed at the following month's auction at the same price? that seems pretty dumb.

Has anyone been to a Hudson County Sheriff Sale (foreclosure auction) before? Any tips / advice? I know the basics from the website (i.e. need to bring cashier check, need to have financing or cash in order, etc.). Any other pitfalls I should be aware of?

I love seeing the people on NextDoor who call it a "Middle Class Gentrification".
Natives like myself have been speaking of the gentrification of Jersey City for a decade now. Many poor Jersey City families have had to move out because they could not afford it anymore. Most were POC but poor is poor and knows no racial boundaries. My family was originally from DT, and now most don't even live in JC anymore. Anytime I raised these concerns online or in a group setting, I was always told variations of "oh well, the city is more safe now and theres more places to eat so the gentrification was a good thing". Twitter (usually on Fulops tweets), NextDoor, Reddit it was always the same story. Now that the bill has come for those who benefited, we're seeing protests and media coverage. People in this thread and other places have been making the argument that "Old lady Sally has lived here her whole life, why should she have to sell her house". I made similar arguments for years. But in my case "Old Lady Sally" was "My Puerto Rican Aunt", and my argument fell on deaf ears.

Because of this, I'm finding it very hard to feel sympathy for the DT owners. The NIMBYS of DT have demanded so much from their politicians. Bike lanes, revamped parks, additional policing, festival after festival, road work. It has always seemed like a major portion of the city's expenditures have been centered Downtown. And the rest of the city has footed the bill. Not anymore.


agreed 100%.

get there early if you want to get a good seat near an outlet. i don't mean like 2 mins early - if you get there so close to the start time, there will be a long line of people checking in and you won't get a good seat.

bring a mini power strip - like someone else mentioned, outlets are at a premium. if you do get a seat near an outlet, you can be a lifesaver by attaching your power strip to the outlet wall.

bring a book or download an e-book.

bring a battery pack for your cell phone just in case you can't sit near an outlet.

don't bring your car. take the bus or PATH instead

Re: 2017 Reval ~ Property Inspections
#30
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I don't see a way that the increase in DTJC taxes in conjunction with the proposed changes to the federal tax laws will be offset by local market economics. The main reason that the RE market economics in DTJC have operated this way is because net expenses (principal + interest + taxes - tax shield savings) have made it attractive to purchase.

From a demand side, in 2018 you'll be paying significantly more out of pocket on a monthly basis due to the tax reval, and this pain will be magnified by also getting less $$ back at the end of the year from your tax return. This combined effect will have a marked downward effect on demand.

From a supply side - I'm assuming supply will not go down (i.e. they will not tear down any buildings) - if anything supply will increase as some people will not be willing or able to absorb such a dramatic increase in taxes, and will look to move to lower cost areas.

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