Thinking of purchasing a 510sq ft 2BR condo in 8th willow 5th floor walkup in hoboken
Even though its close to bus and park you should also consider what other options renters have in that area. Also ask yourself the question, "Would I rent this place?"

My broker wants me to sign an Exclusive Right to buy Buyer agency contract. Can I get out of this type of contract if I ended up not liking the agent?

How far can prices rise in Hoboken in 2014? 5%, 10%, 15%?
