Brick Underground article on New Yorkers moving to Jersey City
#1
Newbie
Newbie


Over the past decade, Jersey City, New Jersey’s second-largest city, has been drawing New Yorkers in search of good commutes and lively communities. But most importantly, they’re looking for apartments to rent or to buy that are more affordable than NYC.

If all else fails you can also find foreclosed properties and get financing with Fannie Mae's site www.homepath.com. Priority is normally given to first time home buyers. I've submitted a few offers on this site.

Can anyone recommend a painter that would paint a small one bedroom apartment (460 square feet) for around $500 not including the cost of paint? Looking for a painter to do the job this week. The painter we normally use is on vacation for a month.

Yelp, Realtor.com and Zillow offer helpful reviews of local realtors. 20% deposit is now the norm due to all the bidding wars. Waiving contingencies is also helpful. You can negotiate the commission rate with some agents if you are selling. Depends on the agent. Private message me for more info. I've been living in the area since the 1990s

Re: SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILIES IN JERSEY CITY HIGHLIGHT GROWING MIGRANT CRISIS

If one person commits a crime they don't represent the majority.
I have been to Syria and they are extremely kind, hardworking and family-oriented and they share our values. They are running away from ISIS not joining ISIS. Before ISIS invaded Syria was generally a secular country with very little crime. They are also one of the most educated countries in the middle east. 86% of Syrian refugees have a college degree according to the Voice of America. They will contribute to society here like many others that came before them. Remember Steve Job's father came from Syria. Even Jerry Seinfeld is of Syrian descent.

Th express is is not unlike the national inquirer. Their top story today is that a family was killed by a fire caused by their washer dryer.

Re: Longish-time JC resident interested in buying...somewhere

You may want to consider neighborhoods near the light rail like Union City and Bayonne where you can buy a whole house with a backyard for the price of a studio or one bedroom in downtown JC. It is about 15 minutes by lightrail to the path. Also Weehawken and West New York which have 24 hour shuttle buses to Port Authority and some pretty treelined streets.

Re: Buyers Agent or not

A buyer agent will negotiate on your behalf, keep you in the loop on brand new and off market listings. They will also provide you with a comparative market analysis/comps which will help you to come up with a reasonable offer. They also understand the state of the current market and can offer insight as to what will help to win a bidding war. They can also recommend reputable and local lawyers, lenders, contractors and inspectors. They have your best interest at heart. If you go directly to the listing agent what is the benefit? The listing agent is looking out for the seller and has a signed agreement with the seller. Also any buyers' agent can process a bid on homepath on your behalf. They do all the work and facilitate the whole process at no cost to you.

Re: Sell or rent JSQ house?

The median home price in Jersey City has gone up 45% from 2012 until now due various factors including the current low lending rates. These low rates are predicted to go up soon. It is a sellers market right now with bidding wars happening all over JC. These current market conditions could change if the rates go up.

Check out the below site to get a market analysis on what homes are selling for in your area and what your home's estimated value is. You can also get a monthly report to track the value.
