They carpeted stairs in our building are filthy, greasy and grimy. Does anyone recommend a carpet cleaner business in Jersey City that would give us an estimate? Thank you.

We walk by regularly and there is no activity. On a different note, FM is now open, but they don't have a happy hour or anything..

We like the ban on chain stores. It's not like they are so far away if one really wants to go to one...

Okay, here is what I did and for some reason it worked..I copied all my paperwork including stickers, final inspections, EVERYTHING I could get my hands on and FAXED it to the building dept with a cover sheet to my specific inspector. Every time I logged on and saw my permits still open after everything was approved, it drove me nuts.
2 weeks later all my permits were officially closed. No response from anyone, just everything closed.
Going there in person didn't work.
Good luck!

Bit off topic, but we have an electric adult kick scooter, EcoReco, light weight, easy to fold and bring on PATH..need to be careful as JC streets are in such disrepair though.

Welcome to the hood!
Most of the GC's you're looking for are booked solid, this is their busy season.
Are you willing to pull your own permits? That may help as many do not have time to go to the Building Dept...
Do you need architectural drawings for your "spring project" i.e. plumbing, electrical, etc.?

You're smart, our agent also represented the seller and it was a nightmare transaction...you'd think they'd be stoked to simply get the sale with vacant units.

We live in an old incredibly loud row house with creaky floors and front door of building slamming, enable Alexa white noise skill, my fave is thunderstorm. Tell her to loop, she'll stay on all night, staying asleep is gold!

We just got done with a gut reno on our condo, a few things..
Building permits in JC are devilish.
You need to bring 2 copies from your NJ licensed architect to the building dept where they will get stamped.
You need an extra copy at your residence at all times.
It is costly and time consuming.
If there is anyway you can avoid it and simply go with a sliding door and a transom (we have interior transom windows and love it) go that route.
Look at the top of page 4, if your project can be "ordinary maintenance" you'd be better off.

Good luck and post pictures!

In NJ, you have a warrant of habitability. Long story short, you can pay to have the damage repaired and subtract that cost from your rent. Look at the top of page 2.

Is there a permit hanging anywhere? The bright yellow ones? If so, you can trace the info per the building dept website.

I agree, something like this would be great for you. Give yourself a chance to learn the lay of the land, meet people, get your feet wet without making a full commitment right off the bat.
Don't let us scare you either, we all love it here and think this is the greatest place on earth...it's just very different from the midwest or any place else.
We all have war stories to tell on getting our first living situation set up, many people couch surfed, did a sublet, roommate/student/corporate living.
There is no yes or no answer as to paying a realtor, it depends on what you find. Inventory is low and demand is high. The other poster is right, utilize both in your searches.

If you've found a ton of places that you know that you would like for around 1G, why not go for that? If the listing says there is a realtor fee and you know you like it, go for it!

NYC/NJ has numerous self employed individuals (I'm one) one thing that I did that made a difference before I moved here was set up an account with a local credit union, the landlord loved that.

Have you thought about a sublet? I agree with the other poster, to find something that already exists is better. Honestly, it doesn't sound like you have a long term solid credit history, not what east coast landlords want at least. To just show up and say "hey look, I've got 20G in my account that hasn't been there long term, I'm self employed and don't know how long it's going to take to sign on new clients and I want a place at least 500sq feet in a safe neighborhood with quick access to the city" is going to be a tough sell.

A 6 month sublet or something like that (which is also what I did at first) would give you so much flexibility and take the heat off. A roommate situation could work, but honestly, most people don't want a roommate who works from home. Give it some thought, good luck!

Hi, I'm originally from the midwest too, have been on the east coast nearly 20 yrs.
1600 a month for a minimum of 500sq feet in a "safe neighborhood" without a realtor would mean a basement/attic apartment, if you can even find that in JC.
Trust me, I get it.
I recommend that you save at least 1800$++ and even make concessions at that. Maybe consider Weehawken? Or consider a smaller space?
Understand that it most likely will be a walk up, without an in-unit w/d, dishwasher, outdoor space, etc.
Honestly, moving a queen sized bed from STL will cost more than it's worth. If you look at the "Free" section of Craigslist, you'll quickly see people are literally giving away things like that every day (just take your steam iron to everything)
Many people without cars have a service like "Fresh Direct" for groceries, if applicable.
Have ALL your documentation at your finger tips including your last 2 years tax returns, letters from previous landlords, enough cash for first/last/realtor fee on hand, Bank Statements, Photo ID, Pay check stubs, etc and when you see a unit you like, JUMP! Do not hesitate, especially since you're moving in the height of the season.
Good luck!

Re: The Foundry - Condos at Liberty State Park

We have friends that rented at the Foundry circa 2011, it was a love/hate relationship.
He said the Lightrail was a nightmare, hardly ever ran and was always breaking down. Taking the Lightrail to the Path to the Metro to upper midtown was $$$$ and could take hours. The Zipcars in the parking lot was always broken and garbage everywhere.
They rented a huge 1bdr on the groundfloor, walked through the lobby and into a courtyard with a "private entrance", paid 1,700$.
The unit itself was spacious, updated appliances, w/d, sunny, I spent the nights there several times.
I'm sure things have changed since 2011, but the neighborhood was seedy with really nowhere to go, they were slaves to their car.
