Fred. the 2012 taxes on 197 Raritan St were $4,882. However, that property went "Under Contract" on October 6th. I'd be glad to help you if you're looking for something in the Keyport/Cliffwood Beach/Aberdeen area. Just call, text or email me with what you'd like to find.
By the way, I lived in Cranford for many years.

If there is already a signed contract.(NO)...you will have to have the contract canceled within the due diligence/contingency period. You will need a new contract and hope the seller will agree to contribute. I 'm curious as to what your agent has told you. It is also based on the type of loan you are getting. Ask your mortgage representative and your Realtor. This should have explained to you and if was not; I would be surprised it wasn't explained to you..
If you have hired an attorney address the issue with an attorney. Seller can contribute up to 3% of the purchase price,although I have seen as high as 6%. Your question is not specific enough there are many scenarios not given.
Closing costs can depend on pro -ration of taxes, HOA demands if any buying a condo/town home, commissions, title insurance costs and if you have included a home protection plan. If you have hired an attorney; attorney fees is another added closing cost. Your Realtor should explain costs with you reviewing and estimated HUD 1. I can't read into your situation I hope this helps. the email is also coming from Mata wan, is this a New Jersey purchase?
Haven't seen much, but most people around tend to want to live in Cliffwood Beach, which is really like right next door, even uses the same zip code. It's more residential & most people I've known over the years are often people that actually grew up here & remained here. Must be a reason why! There are also some amazing houses right on the water, down I think, by Beach Drive, I think. It's not often that you see that in NJ!!!!... more
Hi Donna- It's possible that Aberdeen left homes values unchanged, but to meet it's increased municipal budget decided to increase the ratio.
For example, if ratio is $30 per $1,000 of assessed value, then an $100,000 property, would have a $3,000 bill. So when they needed more money, they just made the ratio be higher than $30, and thereby increase the tax bill.... more
The previous answer is correct, homes on Broadway are generally selling in the $200,000 range, some are even in the upper $100,000's. However, the average in Keyport is closer to the $300,000 range. Don't be turned off by the fact that they look "run down" from the outside. In most cases this can work to your advantage! Buying a home that needs a little work means you may be able to make a profit further down the road, with a little elbow grease. The fun thing about the homes in the Broadway area is that they are so close to the water, and most of them are older homes with a lot of character. They definitely are not your cookie cutter houses! If you need any other help, feel free to call!
It depends on how far the creek is from the home, if there is a basement and such.
Is there any signs of problems? As far as I know, depending upon the distance from the home there may be some insurance questions. But again, the distance is key.... more
