Yes the taxes are $9213.00 per year. The rate is over $3.00 per $1000.00 whihc generally indicates there is going to be a townwide re-evaluation sometime in the near future. What we are seeing is homeowners going for tax appeals on homes that the hoeowner believe to be over assessed. This is an option for you. The appeal has to be filed with the town/coiunty usually by April. The period to begin an appeal generally starts in February after the tax bils are received. You can have a realtor run comparables for you to tax to the appeal which is usually done in June-August. Or if you would like you can hire a local real estate appraiser who can do an appeal appraisal on the property and take that and the appraiser to the hearing to have the taxes reduced. There is a website that you can refer to anytime you are seeking information on properties in NJ www.njactb.org will give you tax infomation on any property. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact me. The CMA for tax appeal purposes is a FREE service any realtor can rpovide to you.... more
OK, I am assuming you mean that Trulia is listing the taxes as $4,611 and then has 2010 listed after it. That is a good question. I don't know why they did that. Unfortunately, as Realtors, we do not enter that information so it is coming from their site. The assessments are correct but the tax amount is not. I agree that it is very misleading. You might get more accurate information at other sites. Feel free to visit my website, http://www.BringMeHomeNJ.com or the GSMLS.com website. Those sites pull information directly from the Garden State MLS and tax records. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 201-214-8400 and I would be happy to answer them for you.

As a listing or selling agent, I attend all home inspections. I'm licensed in NH and CT and most agents there do the same. Should something go wrong, the agents should be there to witness and hopefully resolve. In 34 yrs of sales, I've seen everything from inspectors overflowing tubs to stoves being left on. As a listing agent, it's my responsibility to keep an eye out but to keep quiet and let the inspection proceed. At the end, I just ask if I can see any problems that the owners should be aware of. A recent inspection showed a huge ant colony in a wall that you wouldn't necessarily see. (It was like the Nature Channel!) I was able to tell the out-of-state sellers that I saw it.... more
It is most definitely unethical if they entered without following the instructions on showing. If your agent did not specify that a phone call or appointment needed to be made prior to entering then this person did not do anything wrong. Is the house vacant or occupied? Your agent should know everytime this person entered because of the lock box. As far as using tools to remove a panel, this needs to be discussed with your agent.... more
I'm living in Byram Twp in Cranberry Lake (a stone's throw from Green) and absolutely love the community here! Great place to raise kids...no one locks their doors and lots of family oriented activities. All of northwestern NJ is great to raise a family. We love the area so much that we're moving just a few minutes south for more gardening space but wanted to stay in the same general area.... more
