While you certainly have a nice concise "wish list", it is really not realistic in Franklin Lakes unless you are willing to renovate or compromise on location. Franklin Lakes' prices start in that 500K-600K price range and easily top $1M for the kind of property you are looking for. I have one listing in Franklin Lakes asking $695K with great property (1.25 acres) but no pool and it does need some renovation. I would be happy to show it to you, give me a call!

I would suggest you broaden your search to some surrounding communities -- Bergen County has a number of them in that western/northern area that have great schools, lovely neighborhoods and a variety of commuting options to NYC. I would be happy to work with you!

Dear Franklin Lakes Homebuyer,

There are some homes that are available in the area at similar price points and it probably would be a good idea if you are able to see what you can purchase for the dollars you can afford. If you would like I can send you off some properties to review and we can set something up for you to take a look. I can be reached at 201-259-5205 Suzanne Parisi, Century 21 Crest Real Estate.

I will sit down with you and go over the possibilities currently on the market and see if we can get close to what you desire to purchase and what work you would be willing to put into the home. We will also go over current loan programs and rates.

I have been in the business over 25 years in Bergen County, I have worked as an appraiser for the banks for a number of years also and I will do my best to "pull a rabbit out the hat for you".

well there are a total of 8 houses available within your price rance. Obviously they are smaller homes but several appear attractive from the photos. A couple are short sales which can mean you would have to be prepared to wait out the decision of the bank but that might be worth it. Couple will need some updating and you would have to be prepared to get the paint brush out
If you send me your email address I will send you the listings
Regards
Peter

Hi FranklinLakes,
I wish I had good news but the specs you are looking for in Franklin Lakes within your price point is just not going to happen. IF by chance we did find a property the condition will be poor.
May I ask whay you have selected Franklin Lakes? While it truly is a lovely town, I can find you a home in Bergen County with your specs. in other towns.
Towns with great school sysytems, a central business district, good commuting options reasonable taxes and a strong community atmosphere.
Contact me if you'd like to discuss the possibilities.
I would be happy to forward all available homes for sale in FL within your price point.
Just send your email address
All the best,
Chris Gubb
