condos: Look Down My Rain Barrel... - 07/24/14 10:03 AM

Most people who live in the Jersey City area are aware of the problem with water runoff flooding the sewers. There is help on the way. Through a program aptly named the Jersey City Rain Barrel Initiative, a number of rain barrels will be available for a discount price to Jersey City residents.
 
Do you remember the old song entitled “Playmate”? A kid wants her friend to come out and play. She describes various ways they can play, and then says, “and we'll be jolly friends forever more.” One of the activities she mentions is “look down my rain barrel”. The most recent … (0 comments)

condos: Lady Liberty's Hometown - 07/16/14 10:26 AM

A lot of tourists say that they visited New York and saw the Statue of Liberty. Many of them don't realize that Lady Liberty is in the waters of Jersey City, Hudson County. Liberty Island is a scant 2000 feet east of Liberty State Park in the Jersey City area. Since she is so near, let's take a closer look at her.
 
Most people know that the Statue was a gift to America from France on the occasion of our centennial. The President of the United States was authorized by Congress to accept such a huge gift, and the War Department … (0 comments)

condos: Are You Ready to Buy? - 03/27/14 05:48 AM
 After renting for a few years here in the Hoboken area, you may decide it's time to get “a place of your own.” You're tired of putting your money into something that will never be yours. What you'd really like is a condo. That seems to be the happy compromise between the convenience of an apartment and ownership.
 
Planning is important for the transition from renting to owning. A vital first step is keeping a clean credit record. This will ensure that you obtain the best mortgage interest rates. You should know what your credit score is. If it's low, start … (0 comments)

Here are the final sales figures for October 2010 compiled using the Hudson County Multiple Listing Service.
How’s the real estate market in Hoboken?  I’m often asked this question.  My answer.. “that depends if you’re a buyer, seller, renter or investor!”

condos: July 2009 – Hoboken Condo Market Statistics - 08/20/09 09:31 PM
Here are the final sales figures for July 2009 compiled using the Hudson County Multiple Listing Service.
Overall, Hoboken condominiums showed a decline when compared with the same period last year.  There were declines in total units sold, total contracts signed, average selling price, median selling price and total sales dollar volume.
I’m certainly not surprised by these figures as we’re still facing challenges from the local supply / demand dynamics, a more challenging lending environment, national / world economic uncertainties as well as local uncertainties just to name a few!
The good news is that the overwhelming number of sales … (0 comments)

 Important update:  
An unfortunate request has been made by my MLS, the Hudson County Multiple Listing Service (HCMLS). They are enforcing a “rule” that members are not able to post links to other brokers listings.  These are same links that I email to customers who are searching for homes.  The only way to provide this information is if a customer asks for it.  They feel that providing open information and analysis is somehow detrimental to the other brokers in town.  I personally don’t see how providing information to followers of this site hurts anyone.  One could easily argue the exact … (0 comments)
