If you are looking to search without engaging with a fulltime Realtor. I would suggest HUDhomestore.com or Realty Trac. A fulltime local Realtor would be able to send you all the homes on the market for the MLS. Good luck to you.... more
If you are considering a 3 family I do not believe USDA is an option regardless of location. The only other option would be VA. FHA is 3.5 down and seller can pay closing costs. FHA would allow for income from property to help qualify for loan. Mortgage insurance costs are higher on an FHA loan, however it may offset rate difference in conventional.

There is crime everywhere. Trenton happens to be the worse. I grew up around the Ewing area, Marquis Rd, and it was never bad. It is a quiet neighborhood. I live in Lawrenceville and the police dept is very diligent. I advise no matter where you move, invest in an alarm system. We live in different times now. With the economy being the way it is, causing crime to rise. Doesn't matter where you live, unless you are very rich and have property with an electric fence.... more
Glendale is great Neighborhood... of course it is close to trenton, but still a great community to live in. In the recent market, homes have been 8 month- to 1 year in the market... and home prices have dropped. On the contrary, home prices are currently rising. I have a lot of market research if interested, please contact me I will be more than happy to send it to you.... more
Ask your listing agent to remove it by updating the status to either sold or withdrawn from the market. As Andrew below noted the basic information is public knowledge and while you may not realize it it's all over the Internet in various formats as is virtually every property in the country. Honestly other than the images, the data is basic and may or may not even be correct, but trying to get it completely off the Internet would be a Herculean task. Andrew's analogy of trying to get your tax records removed from public access is an appropriate one.... more
Always always always, use a broker. A broker has relationships with the big banks and can probably beat retail rates. Besides, a broker will only pull your credit once and can shop you with over 200+ lenders. Where are a retail bank can only offer you their products, not that of the bank down the street.

Making home ownership more than a dream...

To find out if the home is in foreclosure check your county clerk for a foreclosure filing. In order to foreclose the bank has to file legal documents called a "Notice of Lis Pendens" followed by an actual 'Complaint for Foreclosure". Those documents are filed with the County Clerk's office. You may be able to find them online.
If the home IS in the pre-foreclosure stage, and you have a valid lease and are in compliance with your lease, then you don't have to worry about anything just yet. Even if the bank were to take back the home, in New Jersey, they have to honor your lease as a new owner. It is very possible the owner is trying to work out a mortgage modification with the bank and could even manage to retain ownership if they can accomplish this goal.
I have attached a link to the NJ State Department of Community Affairs information for tenants whose landlords are facing foreclosure. I know it's scary but it's not as bad as all that, you have rights, as does your landlord, and the bank has to honor those rights.... more
not clear if your question is about the reassessment which will be coming sooner than later in Ewing or how to appeal current assessment. If you are wondering when Ewing will be reassessing next, speak with Jeff Burd at Ewing twp. (he is assessor there) As to appealing assessments there is a standard process where basically you appeal at the local level then work your way up to state level if unsatisfied with offer/verdict. It isnt a difficult process but can be time consuming. You may want appraisal done and pay appraiser to defend it in court. (typically at the higher level of appeals) Best to start with informal dialogue with twp assessor. (after speaking with local realtor to get a feel for your true market value) When as in the case of Ewing, assessments are old the twp is given considerable leeway in the variance allowed. (assessment is around half of market value and this value will have an allowable deviation from actual market value)... more
