Narrow down the area you would like to live in and then contact a local realtor there. They will be able to get listings for sale as well as rent for you. Its a great time to buy, but if you dont find a home that suits your needs....renting can be a great way to get to know an area before you buy. Good luck!

If you are going to rent, get an inspection to document conditions before you sign the lease. When the lease is up, you now have a record, or if conditions change, get another inspection.
A large corporation in South Jersey was closing down its warehouse operations, and contacted me to document the alleged "neglect and subsequent" damage. After about 4 hours of the inspection, the tenants were relieved that conditions had not changed, and used my report to submit to the landlord for proof.

You might want to narrow down your search for an area based on your commute to work if that is a priority. Then the lifestyle you are looking for...I would recommend finding a local realtor in that area who can steer you in the right direction by working with your specific needs in mind. Renting can be a great way to get used to an area before commiting to a sale.

Hi Johnathon

I would start by seeing what your commute will be like, who if any friends or relative you want to be close to. The lifestyle you want to have access to.

If you have a general area you are thinking about contact a local agent. I can recommend one any where in NJ. I work mostly in the Essex, Passaic and Bergen County areas. be glad to help.

jonathon,

Due to hurricane Sandy rentals are far and few between as not only are homeowers who lost everything looking for rentals, but so are insurance adjusters and the like. i am with those who advocate for you to purchase at this time.

Any particular reason you prefer to rent?

Johnathan,

You can also purchase today with as little as a 3.5% downpayment with an FHA loan. If you were a veteran you would need a zero down payment. The difference between an FHA Loan & VA Loan is an FHA Loan is an Insured Loan and there's a monthly MIP payment as well as an upfront MIP payment. The VA Loan is a guaranteed loan with no MIP or PMI payments.

Good Luck

Hi Johnathan,

With interest rates historically low, I would strongly suggest you seriously consider purchasing a home rather than renting one. Of course this depends on your financial situation, credit score, down payment and job security. I recently did a few blogs pertaining to this topic and will attach for your review. Best of luck to you.
