Well it makes you sound unintelligent. A tax assessment does not equal market value. Yes, they may have overestimated their own market value but that has little to do with their value for tax purposes. A home's value is based on what a buyer is willing to pay for it.

Don't worry, the "tight" market n DTJC I'm sure will be loosening up soon.

In case you missed it, you ascribed motives to them too --
by proclaiming they were doing it because of the reval.

Anyway. It's been on the market for 5 months, they started out asking $1m more than the city's assessed price, and they switched real estate agents after just 2 months. I'm sure there are people more experienced than I am at divining the psychology of sellers, but that doesn't sound like they are getting out because their property taxes are going up. It sounds much more like they are trying to take advantage of an incredibly tight real estate market in DTCJ, and miscalculated.

What does Yeah...No mean? It makes no sense...You aren't the seller so you wouldn't know why they are selling unless you know them. The reval has been known about since Christie ordered it. It was just a question of not if, but how much. Now it's time to pay the piper.

Yeah... no

272 Barrow was first listed in 9/2017 for $3.5 million, which is **WAY** above market, and would probably make it one of the most expensive properties in JC. (The assessor put it at $2.5m.)

The owners pulled it from Twill, and relisted it at $3.3m with Boyne in 11/2017. In December, they reduced it again to $3m. All of that is more than 2 months before the updated rates were published.

This is not an example of people dumping properties because of the reval. It's an example of someone trying to sell a home for more than anyone wants to pay, for at least 5 months.

The new owners ran the place into the ground fast. Now it's just a glorified liquor store. From what I've heard and can see, they seem to have cash flow problems which limits store inventory. If they can't turn a profit selling booze and cigs, they won't be around much longer.

This is a problem city wide. I had a driver start beeping me once in McGinley square for stopping for a school bus with their stop sign out. This also happens a lot near St Domenic Academy. If they get caught it's a 6 point moving violation but good luck with that.

Heights, I don't live in the Heights anymore but I drive through almost daily. I have noticed an alarming lack of driver awareness lately when school buses are stopped with lights on/stop signs shown. The other day on Summit, two cars just sped by a school bus letting off children for the day. I've also seen this happen on Palisade Avenue just past the Supremo Market. If you (or someone else here who attends the meeting) could mention this at the next meeting, I'm sure many families in the area would appreciate it. It would be an excellent revenue producer, too - they should fine the hell out of these idiots.

I read what they wrote different. I took what they were saying as the shooting started on Sherman ave and later continued again on Manhattan ave where at least 8 more shots were let off and they heard at least 15 shell casings in total were picked up from both scenes.

If no one was hit it isn't uncommon at all for it not to make the news. Most shootings without a gunshot victim don't get covered.

If they really meant 8 people were shot I would have a hard time believing that also.

I disagree. The JCPD doesn't need JC list to compile crime statistics. The truth is that GP saw a post that said that some was found shot on Brunswick street and felt the need to look up the address to quell their anxiety about where it happened. We don't know whether the victim was "low income" or not.

If posters on this site cared about crime stats, we would see many more posts regarding crime in Greenville and Lafayette.

I think GP made a very significant point and is relevant. I am sure municipal governments, insurance companies, police departments, and health facilities look at these incidents and measure the statistics to see if there is a pattern and where the source of this dilemma is attributed.

You cannot refinish bamboo. It contains glue which binds the strands of bamboo together. Some also contain formaldehyde which is toxic and would become airborne if sanded. Hopefully it's not glued down to the subfloor. If it's floating it will be much easier to replace.

Re: Liberty Energy - scammer going door to door?
#27
Home away from home
Home away from home


I will agree that the residential door knockers are shady but buying deregulated energy in and of itself it not a scam. Anyone looking into switching would definitely want to do their homework. One thing that you would never want is a variable rate contract. The other problem is that PSE&G's rates are the cheapest in the state, so their isn't much incentive to switch in this market to save a few bucks a month.

Those companies would be much better off marketing to JCP&L customers. Their rates are much higher than ours and sometimes change block by block in terms of cost per kilowatt hour. Nobody should be door knocking in this day and age.

I live in an apartment building, so someone had to buzz this guy in. He was an Asian gentlemen, probably in his late 40s or so.

I'm assuming it's a scam, right? The company does exist, I googled it.


It's a 3rd party energy re-seller, and yes it's a total scam. Your electric and gas might be cheaper for a month or two after signing up, then your bill will skyrocket but you're locked into a long-term contract. There's a million of these re-sellers out there, most of them are pretty shady and if Liberty Energy or any other re-seller comes to your door again, I suggest you politely slam it in their faces, and call the police if necessary.

This is the grown up version of the kids who sold magazines door-to-door, often at double the normal subscription price, under the guise of fundraising and often hopped up on drugs. It made no sense and I slammed my door in these peoples' face too.
