Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval

Home away from home


I asked this question some time ago. The answer someone provided as I recall is exactly as you suggested, that it would take some time to reach accurate pricing because of seller denial. I would assume though, that there must be some retrospective analysis of tax impact on values across the country that could be used for a formula to limit the increase to say 85% of the absolute number. Homeowners getting a 15% discount would feel less compelled to appeal which might take less of the city resources. I know some people will object to this based on on the difficulty of reaching a fair formula that is appropriately reflecting each city situation. It seems to me though, that if limited in scope, this proposal could gain more traction than an 5 year installment plan which has little prospect of winning imho.

Indeed. It looks like a fishing expedition where they expect the buildings to self-identify so they can decide which one meet X and Y criteria. I also received a notice years ago that I ignored. As long as you don't provide the information...
Not sure whether you mentioned it but are you in a new building? Or recently condo-ed?

Can someone confirm the data on the annual fees Wall Street gets for the pension funds management? I thought it went from ~$250M under Corzine to ~$600M under Christie. As Maggy Thatcher would say, this is MY money.

Very good advice Brewster. I would say everyone should write this on their inpatient paperwork just to see their faces! I personally will record my next conservation next time I sign something.

Yes I have noticed the sudden increase in traffic too. It really occurred the last 2 months. In the past I could roughly correlate this to the economy (1998-1999 and 2006-2007 were the most congested) but this year I am not sure.

Re: Vogue Cafe - new French cafe on York & Marin

Just tried Vogue. Quiches were super yummy as well as the right-out-of the-oven croissants (they have several varieties, hazelnut/chocolate, almond, coconut and even pistachios). Their coffee was also quite good although it did not beat Prato imho. Overall impression is very positive. Service was a little slow but they will get there. Choc-o-Pain has some competition but I would say they have different things so people will have more options depending on their needs.

I voted yes to both questions and I am actually more concerned by the lack of oversight of Hudson county taxes (~1/3 of property taxes bill) that represented the lion share of my property taxes increase this year. How are these guys held responsible for service efficiency?

Another reason to reject it in is that if it is built, it will become a nightmare getting in LSP on the south side. I can't imagine the backup on the turnpike.

Hi all, anyone would like to recommend a tree trimming company? I need to cut a laundry pole in my courtyard, it is about the same height as a utility pole though narrower at the top.

There was always some cause behind 9C, this is one of the reasons 9C has retained the community support. Whether it was the best business decision traffic wise, you can always argue about it. What matter is that Tony and Greg made their marks in the hearts of many in the Hamilton Park community and beyond, in the same way Maggie did with the Hamilton Pale House in her time. These friendships will endure. They will be missed for sure..., here. Their sanctuary is always open for a visit as part of a stay at their Wattle Inn in Broome near Middleburgh, and I look forward to get there for skying at Windham in the winter.

I am sorry I won't have the time to go to the city council meeting but in my opinion Matthew O'Donnell voting record raises serious questions. A competent outside council should be able to balance the bids and come up for himself/herself with numbers that are in between 0 to 100 and reflect the true cost/benefits of each bidding company. This suggests that either Matthew O'Donnell did not do his job or is biased. If he wants to explain himself on this forum fine, because otherwise at this point it feels like some healysh practices running anew.

I pass by this area all the time biking. There is only a relatively small space between the "marina", the golf-course and the monorail. It is also next to a roundabout. I can't see a complex built there without impacting a few of these. On top of that, the lights would definitely be in full view of the the nature reserve. Increased traffic into LSP would also be likely if this absurdity is built. Let's have another Sandy to flood the lot and end it all.

The place is a little off the beaten path, I am sure the old timers will make it there, but they might have less traffic with the new crowd. Too bad, I wish there was some sort of post-disaster legal agreement for them to move in whatever commercial place will be built in the newark location. I can appreciate the (urgent) need to work in some (temporary?) place in the meantime.

Re: Jersey City mayor-elect orders end to citywide reval

I asked the same question some times ago and the answer was no. The seller is under no obligations to communicate a process which has not started and is not impacting his/her taxes RIGHT NOW, and the statement that the taxes are low is true AT PRESENT. Whether the buyer agent is under obligation to communicate to the buyer ongoing processes that may affect FUTURE value is still not too clear however imho. Clearly buyer agents are ethically obligated to communicate PRESENT adversarial facts that they know about a property. The question is whether they are obligated to communicate a ONGOING process once it is started and that will impact FUTURE value. If yes to the latter, then current sellers have a very short time window to hide right now before the actual process starts. After that, any person could send a blank email to all realtors reminding them of their obligations, an email that could be used in the court of law.

Again this is all about the law evaluate things, present vs future.

A lot of the new stations locations had to do with crowdsourcing. I remember the Brunswick/7-8th spots being heavily advocated. No surprise there are a few stations in that area now.

Good luck biking today and the next couple of days with an oven blowing in your face...

So..., are buyer's agents who are supposed to act in their client best interest legally liable if they fail to communicate the reval to them? It would be especially interesting to know the info recent purchasers of DTJC houses got using buyer's agents from Armagno, Boyne's, Weichert.

Re: Residents in Trump building furious that they won't have a pool this summer

A way to approach this and put maximum pressure may be to start a tenant association if the owner does not provide rent adjustment. I remember people creating one at one of the new Avalon Cove Newport towers about 15 years ago. The tower was ill designed (as if we would not know with the fire at their Edgewater complex), drafty, and people had huge utility bills. Management there was pretty much dragging their feet until they pulled off the association card. I know they did something, I don't know how effective the repairs were.
