We used Dylan Clark of Dylan Hardwood Floors and were very happy with the results and the service (doesn't hurt that he lives downtown).
They repaired a section of flooring and stained our existing floors.

Have some friends leaving West New York due to the ordered evacuation. They are heading for shelter here in JC with us. They want to park at Newport Mall, is it really flooded? Will they be able to still park there? Any chance they won't be able to drive over here in the next half hour?

As requested, I've updated my avatar Pietro....

Anyway, the process of getting estimates has been quite interesting so far.

The folks I've found have come through Angie's List, Thumbtack.com and through a couple of personal recommendations.

The range and quality of estimates has varied greatly for the painting. I've had much better luck with flooring.

If anyone is interested, I'll update this post as we continue to progress

Need recommendations for several home projects

Howdy All,

I was hoping that someone could recommend someone for each of the following:

1. Built-in Shelving and Cabinetry
2. Refinishing Hardwood Floors
3. Interior Painting
4. Need someone to complete grouting of Kitchen backsplash
5. Dryer duct repair - appears that there is a break in our dryer exhaust venting inside the wall.

I'm trying to avoid going with a general contractor and would like to use as many local folks as possible.

Thanks in advance!

Why does it appear as if Zillow raised the estimates for homes in JC over the last 30 days? (just looking at the Zestimate histories from all the different links)

Re: The NJPP Report on Tax Abatements in JC
#14
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Actually, to me, that does sound like a fraction of what neighbors pay. I'm not in Paulus Hook, but am in Harsimus Cove.

I'm in a Condo and having just received my quarterly bill I can provide my % breakdown of taxes.
(Please note this is based on the "Net Taxable Value" which is not = to my purchase price or to what the real assessed value of the property would be)

Description Rate
County Tax 1.470%
County Open Space Tax .040%
District School Tax 1.507%
Local School Tax .126%
Municipal Purpose Tax 2.858%
TOTAL 6.001%

I have to assume that my tax rate is higher in order to make up for the loss of county and school revenue due to abatements. (don't get me started on civil mismanagement and failed governance, one issue at a time)

I have heard talk of a revaluation so that assessed values would be more in line with reality which would lower the tax rate but I don't assume that it would lower my actual payment, or would it?

If I am being unduly penalized by the municipality is there a legal recourse?

I have been hearing about the potential revaluation for some time.

Will this actually occur? How would it happen?

There was a mention of a gathering storm, but is there really on this topic? I just have a hard time seeing it... Perhaps this requires its own thread...

Just wanted to clear up some of my earlier mis-information.

Here are details on one of the actual units up for auction as provided by the Beacon auction folks.

1 Bd/1 Ba
Sqaure Feet: 795
Listing Price: $425,000
Suggested Opening Bid: $150,000
Certified Check Required: $15,000
Monthly Maintenance: $667 (includes utilities)
Views to the East and the NYC Skyline on one of the highest floors.

Unit is currently rented at $2,000/month

I hope that helps. I now have all the details on available units with me in case there are any other requests...

@Xerxes,

We checked out the Beacon last week and I'll try to answer your questions.

There is a 30 year tax abatement which ranges from 0.97-1.07% of sale price.

I don't have the list of available places in front of me but let me try to give the numbers you asked for.

Mid-range Condo = ~$400,000.00 (List Price)
Suggested Starting Bid = $150,000 (same for all 1 BRs)
Monthly Maintenance = ~$800
Monthly Tax = ~$333 (however, this ends up based on sale price, this is assuming that it actually goes for list)

FYI - It is a Buyer's Choice Auction. This groups similar real estate parcels into pools (I assume they will have one auction for all the 1 BRs and another for all 2 BRs). One pool at a time is displayed in the auction room. Bidders then bid for the right to select the property of their choice from the pool. The winning bidder's choice is then removed from the pool, and the auction continues with additional rounds of bidding. The 'absolute' portion means that the first 12 units will be release regardless of price (however, since they will most likely be the 12 most desirable units they will be the highest priced)

Hope this helps.

As Wibbit states the new developments need to adjust their pricing. And I don't think you can really compare the Beacon to Crystal Point or 77 Hudson unless you decide to completely factor our location (but don't they always say the 3 most important parts of RE are 'location, location, location')...

Also agree that if I paid 'full' price and they were now letting the rest of the units go for potentially much less, I'd be upset too. But, I'm pleased to see a developer face the realities of the market. I'm not convinced that a new development needs to or should be exempt from market forces.

I attended the open house last Sunday and it is intriguing. To echo other comments, I would personally not want to live there given the location and during the tour they emphasized the enclosed community aspect.

The open house was not as busy I would have expected but there appeared to be plenty of people looking at places as a primary residence which leads me to believe that pricing will not be as much as 1/2 off come auction time.

The little lady and I will most likely go back this weekend to take a look at some more units. We have been looking at new developments in the area.

FYI - some of the units are occupied with tenants but you have to request access to those through one of the auction folks on-site and they will arrange to take you to those units.

I can see how having these tours and talks going on all weekend long would definitely inconvenience residents.

I do find the Grove St. Path Taxis to be a complete rip-off. I've had friend's complain that the cabs still carry more than one passenger in the cab going to different destinations that don't know each other. I thought this was illegal and that the city had clamped down on this but a friend of mine had this happen to them just a couple of weeks ago...

Have they lowered prices? will they?

I read that Trump JC lowered prices by 10% on remaining units and was offering a 3.5% 30 year mortgage... (someone please correct me if I'm wrong since I'm attempting to work through my cloudy memory)

I realize that this type of action can make things extremely complicated for the builder since they would face an uproar from people that already purchased their units...

Re: Mayor Healy was just on CNBC

They've had a number of mayors from across the nation on CNBC talking about how the economy is impacting them locally.
I would have liked to hear him speak about how the city is doing economically; if city revenues have been hit, property values (residential and commercial), budgetary issues, how JC compares to what occurs in New York and what, if anything, needs to or should be done.
Instead we got 'wall street west'. I wouldn't have minded it so much if he would have put it out by saying that JC is continually looking to offer businesses a financially viable alternative to expensive Manhattan as opposed to some bad sales rhetoric. In other words, it would have been nice if he were actually prepared to talk with the hosts and to answer their questions. Perhaps I'm being hard on the guy, but I guess I just expect more from our mayor.

It can't be good if I half expected him to just start yelling "Baba-booey!"

Re: Mayor Healy was just on CNBC

I saw it... I know he was supposed to talk about how its impacting JC but all he did was rattle off some stats while trying to 'sell' Wall Street West.
4 Billion in Payrolls... 1/2 mile of Hudson River Waterfront... 71% of Newport works in financial industry... (that is what I could remember)
You know it must be bad when the host has to call out the fact that he's pushing JC. When asked about how JC government is handling it, he barely had a reply just that they are hopeful.
I think Healy's point was: JC is great, we lost some jobs but we're hopeful.
I felt embarrassed.

Embankment Alert
#28

Quite a regular


Please note that the Monday, September 17 Historic Preservation Commission Agenda includes the 11 previously rescheduled applications to demolish the 6th Street Embankment on the grounds of economic hardship.

Please plan on attending this very important meeting, which will commence at 6:30pm on the 14th Floor Conference Room at 35 Montgomery Street

It is vitally important that all residents of Hamilton Park and Hasimus Cove and those concerned with Historic Preservation and Greenspace development turn out to oppose these applications, which should be considered barred by the court preceeding voiding the sale of these parcels to the developer without offering it first to the city.

The Historic Preservation Commission is being asked to make a recommendation to the Jersey City Planning Board, which will take final action at a subsequent meeting, whose date has yet to be determined.
