I am here now for almost 25 years and pretty much agree with Luches. CP is a great community with a very small town feel, within minutes from the City. That said, it is not, say, Brooklyn Heights or SoHo or Hoboken concerning shopping and being up to date with technology and basic things - but that is why it is such a sleepy wonder. Regarding New York and Philly sending their finest here: I have never seen any problems at all. By the way, Ricky Merlino being called small is like a limo being called a compact. I recently saw he and his Philadelphia relatives in a bar on Anderson eating, and he looked about twice the height and weight of the press-created Lil Joe - looked like Odd Couple: dapper and small vs. disheveled and big. Go figure. And all of this is nonsense - but the town is sleepy, as I said. :) ... more

I have been using to help me navigate all financial questions regarding purchase of a new home. It is great help to analyze ALL costs of home purchase and their effect on whether house makes for a smart investment- very educational + easy to use- learn about closing costs, initial renovation costs, Title Insurance + HO Insur, Real Estate Taxes, Mortgage Financing (how much loan$ do I qualify for? and can I afford monthly payments on my income/assets?), Utility bills, Broker commissions, etc. also helps Renters figure out if better to Buy v Rent, and explains financial reasons why with a great graph. This is an invaluable tool especially for first-time homebuyers. Get smart with biggest investment of your life... ... more

House value is impacted by the year of construction, and construction standards differ decade on decade. But not in a linear way like the older the cheaper :) The main differences between 1930s and 1960s house is the room location, size, shape - people had different standards of where kitchen should be and how large it should be throughout 20th centry. It is not that the house from 1930s is constructed worse, than that from from 1960s. Just differently.

It is a matter of taste and many people look for houses from specific parts of the century with authentic details. (For some reason, "authentic details" for many people here means pre-war, because after war the rush to build new housing meant identical apartment blocks with less detailing)

Quality does not degrade, as long as houses are kept up to date.

Ridiculously thin walls are problem in all dutch housing - I have lived in houses from 1700s, 1930s, 1960s and 1970s. All the same.

The main factors that impact the price are location, state of the house, shortage (you're looking in a large city by dutch standards). Year of construction does not come highly on this list. And it is a matter of preference for many. (Obviously, older houses are usually much more expensive, I mean houses from before 1900s, but I think you were not looking into these)

I have helped many clients when they buy their first home. It is a very exciting time, and there are alot of details that I will guide you through. I will guide you through the pre mortgage approval process, which will help you with your budget.
We will then select a community that will fit your need, and we will go through listings, and then schedule showings of properties. Once we find the home, I will guide you through the contract, inspection..all the way to the closing table.
I look forward to working together.
Have a great day!

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Sounds like an error in classification on the part of the listing agent. There are a number of criteria around ownership type (Condo or Fee Simple) and Style (Condo, Townhome, single family) that agents sometimes get wrong.

Take the time to check on any/all criteria that mean a lot to you --- another one would be school info and fees for condos - I see errors here as well.

Hope this helps.

Eriona, at this time you have received SEVEN responses from NJ REALTORS.
This is your opportunity to be amazed at how truly welcoming and helpful your peers are in the business. Pick up the phone and start calling these REALTORS.

What is hard to realize it they ALL want you to succeed!

I trust you have read the "7 Things I wish I knew" and now actually have focus on what our interview/conversation should be about and the information that will prove relevant to you.

They will all invite you to interview at their office. That is ok because you know the one and only question, of any importance to you, to ask the broker also.

There are some really, really impressive agents with incredibly visible telephone numbers that you should not waste another moment to call.

Please come back and update us one what is going on in your life and this selection process.

I'll have to agree with the other agent comments on parking in Allendale. Allendale is a great town with so many wonderful features. From the great schools, town center, lovely people and convenience to NYC and Highways to either the NY Thruway, or the Shore area…please call me if you'd lie an area tour and a chance to view some great properties.
