Re: Wayne Street Issues

The Police have limited effect with persistent troublemakers because THEY LIVE THERE. Its a tenant problem caused by Jersey City's appalling rent control ordinance.

Landlords are not in control of the rents and low-rents attract scumbags. No one wants to be a respectable family in a building of section 8's - So even if the unit is vacated, the state of squaller continues.

Wayne Street or Christopher Columbus Avenue. They are all multi family dwellings under rent control.

I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion — be you Hindu, Jewish, or Muslim, I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior....

I used an appraiser in 09 who charged me $300 per apartment. I picked up the application papers from city hall and dropped them off on Pavonia avenue - it was easy. Saved me $500 per apartment ($4,000 per year, every year!)

Don't use an attorney, unless your situation is unduly complicated. They are blood suckers and charge rediculous commission. Fact is....you don't need them!

My appraiser achieved a 14% reduction in property taxes accross the board - on 8 apartments, and we didn't even have to go to the hearing! Appraiser negotiated the deal directly with Jersey City - who had 700 applications last year!

A good appraiser will pull up compatible sales and run the numbers before doing the appeal. Mine wouldn't even take my money unless he thought I had a good chance of winning.

Just get the paperwork in asap - you can select the appraiser after April 1st as long as it's filed with the city.

Re: Con men back in town

The guy I see every year is white, 5ft 10", rectangular metal framed glasses, blondish curly hair - getting a little thick - 230lbs.

The Courtney Love chick looks like a junkie. 5ft 10" blonde with crazy eyes.

Also, I called 911 a few months ago because I saw a guy in an orange PSE&G shirt going down peoples driveways the "check the meter" on Ogden Avenue. Looked like a legit service guy, but he was acting kinda strange.

He'd get to the house and try windows and look through garage doors. He got to the end of the Avenue and put a grey sweatshirt over the PSE&G shirt. The undercover cops were on the way and they busted him on Palasade Avenue.

They let him go because he said he was "looking for an apartment". What a load of rubbish - he was clearly casing out property! (At least the JCPD took his information down).

Could be the same guy. You can sometimes catch him in front of the Exchange Place elevator building, bugging hard working commuters with tales of losing his money/passport.

I've also seen him operating on Grove Street and Jersey Avenue.

They may be staying with friends or some community ran flop house in the area - because they only appear once a year, then move on.

Con men back in town

Was stopped on Montgomery Street by a guy who I see in Jersey City every year.

Starts the conversation by asking if there is a "Travelers Aid" office in town. Then starts asking for a loan, due to catastrophic circumstances.

Saw him on Montgomery at 10.30am Sunday 30th heading for Grove Street. Blue polo shirt, 230lbs, expensive glasses - looks like a tourist.

He usually operates with a skanky blonde chick who looks a bit like Courtney Love. So keep your eyes open for the pair of them and don't be taken in.

They smoke behind the counter while they make the sandwiches.

They didn't give a damn when I complained. So screw em'.

(And you always get hassled for money by that homeless dude outside.)

Anyone using an attorney in connection with a property tax appeal? (My current one is a little expensive)

Hi, Thanks for the leads.

The problem is proving to be: checking to see if the comparable property has had it's tax re-assessed yet to be a valid comp...

I really don't understand why this is relevant...surely for a condo, it's the ratio of sales price per square footage that matters?

City re-assessment of property tax is kinda irrelevant when you're assessed at $550 a sqft and similar units are selling for $375 a sqft. Am I nuts or can someone straighten me out here?

Property Tax Appeal - Comparable Sales
#11
Newbie

I'm preparing a tax appeal - I'm assessed at $550 a square foot for a 450sqft condo = approx $250K value.

I see current sales in the Hamilton Park area coming in at $370 a sqft.

Wondered if anyone has 5 comparable sales in 07302 that they may be filing from a similar appeal?

According to the guy at the assessors office at City Hall:

• Requirements are properties sold between 10/07 - 10/08.
• Taxes must already be assessed and not pending
• No rebates in place
• At least 5 comps required

Need block, lot, address, date of sale, price

Anyone got any comps to share? If we work together and obtain 5 legit examples, we can all reduce our condo taxes. It only costs $25 and must be filed before April 1st.

Best, Alex

It belongs in the park with the other WWII monuments.

No disrespect to anyone, but it is a rather literal depiction of something grotesque and ruins the skyline.

I'm selling a 1 bed unit downtown. renovated with low taxes. gas central heat, hardwood floors, new kitchen and bath - under $300K. I can even help with financing.
PM me if you want to take a look. I'd rather sell it myself than use realtors.
