It's definitively possible, though it will depend on size and exact location. Most 1 beds near the Grove and Exchange Path stations (within 7-10 minute walk) currently sell at an average of $300K and $350K respectively, but those vary based on type of building, size, amenities, and location. At around $250K there are a few options, specially if you consider Montgomery Towers or Metropolis Towers (co-ops). Here's one I just brokered recently for reference (sold at $238K):
Currently there are about a dozen homes at around or below the $250K mark, with a few being short-sales (pre-foreclosure). However, you don't necessarily have to go the distressed-property route.
If you haven't yet selected an agent to service you for the search/purchase, I'm available for a free consultation to see ihow we can work together to achieve your goals. Call me when you're ready, I look forward to it.
Thanks. and good luck.

What ever office issued it should have a copy. I have never seen one from NJ but the ones I have seen all say Cert of Occupancy and have signatures on it. Contact the building dept and ask if they have a copy.... more

Which area you prefer to live in really comes down to the lifestyle you prefer. Newport tends to be primarily high amenity highrise building. The stores and shops tend to be corporate chains, and with Newport Mall so close you have more of a separation between the residential, office and retail uses. Areas along Washington Blvd can be pretty empty on evenings and weekends since it's where all the office buildings are.
Hoboken is obviously a much older area. Downtown and along Bloomfield, Garden and Park, the homes tend to be smaller but have a lot of historic character. You can find highrises spread throughout town but most of the town in low to mid-rise. The uses tend to be a lot more integrated with shops and restaurants throughout town. Most of the large scale corporate offices are downtown but you have smaller office space throughout town. While Hoboken has it's fair share of chain stores there are also a lot of boutiques and independent restaurants. Because of the mix of uses you do need to be a little more careful about where you choose to live as some areas of town can get noisy on weekends.
I hope this gives you a good overview. My advise would be to sit down with an agent and go over the lifestyle you are looking for. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to have this conversation, or if I can be of assistance in any way.

Are you working with a licensed Realtor?
Realtors can assist you with property values and Buyers agents take the time to find out what your looking for.
The answer may have multiple reasons for one property being higher than another.
Downtown Jersey City is a great place to invest in a condo and their can be several reasons for a price to be $30,000.00 higher does one property include parking?
What about the ammenities, outdoor space etc.
If you have not taken the time to work with a Realtor perhaps you should.

Every buyers priorities differ when it comes to buying a home. For most buyers deciding factors usually include location, desired price range,good floor plan, overall condition, and good schools. If you plan on living in your first home for at least 5 years or longer than good schools should play some importance in your decision. If you are only planning on staying in your first home for a shorter period of time then it might not be your greatest priority.... more
Brokerages will vary on the "split" they pay agents. Your best bet is to speak to a number of brokerages and ask them to explain what your split will be when you begin and what it will take to improve upon that split. Also ask about any other expenses you may incur.
As a new agent, training will be very important so be sure to ask about training resources and mentoring as you learn the business.
I would be happy to speak to you about my own experience - I have been with two brokerages - the first a very traditional brokerage and now Keller Williams.
Good luck and best,

Hi Day, depending on your budget both downtown Jersey City and Hoboken have really vibrant communities and a younger demographic with lots to do in shopping, restaurants and bars plus they are just a 10 min train ride, bus ride, ferry ride or drive into NYC.
You can always check craigslist for sublets or roommate situations to help you in transition while you are finding your own place. Hope that helps!... more
