Geshu,

Definitely turn to a local Realtor that specialized in Hudson County. You do not want to have your first time as a home buyer turn bad. It's a great time to buy a home, prices are still low and the tax credit is going to be around for longer. The biggest step is applying for a mortgage. A good idea is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage before you start looking so that you know exactly what you can afford. The worst thing is to fall in love with something then getting disappointed. Feel free to contact me at any time and I will be glad to help and get you into your first and future home.

Thanks, Christine. I have gone and seen the property and am about to sign the contract. I want to get opinions of the people who know of the area, complex around 38th street/jfk blvd and how do they think the property might fare in next 5 yrs or so?

I'm not personally familiar with Hudson County, however, I tried doing a search with Google for "Park City Arms Union City NJ" and the community listings came up. Some "For Sale" ads showed up in the search results (homes.com, craigslist, sell.com classifieds). After skimming through most of the ads, it looks like the homes are priced in the low to mid $300's. If you'd like some assistance with any of the steps in your home purchase, I'd be glad to help. No need to stay confused or nervous - this Advice board is great for offering advice! You can feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone with any additional questions.
