Hi Chinonso22- sometimes, agents forget to take down old listings, if they were uploaded manually. That's why you need to work one one with a dedicated agent. Agents like me not only provide the current inventory, that are 100% active and real, but also coach you through the buying process. ... more

I would think that the best thing for you to do would be to come up and look at some properties. In a densely populated area like Hudson County, conditions do vary from block to block.

I have lived here for 40 years and would be glad to help you find an new home. Please contact me and let me know when you will be up here so we can schedule appointments.

That zip code encompasses a very large portion of Jersey City with one of the nicest sections being on Lincoln Park. There's some very beautiful highly desirable homes in that area so I doubt safety would be an issue. Look into homes on the Doctor's Row section located between Westside and Kennedy. Streets such as Fairview, Kensington, Jewett, Belmont and Especially Gifford have some very beautiful 2 family homes and some of them with office space. These are all streets sprinkled along the entrance to Lincoln Park which is also very nice and has a full size football field, track, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basket ball courts, soccer fields and an amazing jogging path. Plus it's very close to St. Peter's college so you could potentially get lots of students interested in renting in that location. Typically the rents around there can run from $800 to $1000 for a 1 bedroom, $1200 to $1500 for a 2 bedroom and about $1500 to $2000 for a 3 bedroom, depending on the proximity to transportation.

Contact me if you'd like me to take you around to see some properties and the area. I've actually sold several properties over there so I know the area very well! And I might have a really nice 2 family coming on the market early next year!

Hi Marie,

Tony is correct about the upfront Mortgage insurance premiums. FHA is pricing itself out of the market with it's new Upfront MIP being raised to 1.75% and the monthly increase to a factor of 1.25%. These increases are effective April 9th. Please be aware of these changes as well as all of your mortgage options. Please feel free to contact me to review the best mortgage option. My contact information is below or feel free applying on my website.

In response to your second question, no I've never come across this before but needless to say...not surprised by this behavior. Again, I still would not agree to it and did he ask you himself or through his agent which is really unethical, illegal and inappropriate, amongst other things to say the very least. My advice would be to walk away and not take part in his illegal scam. I wonder if he will still think that holding out for $10,000 cash is a better deal when the bank forecloses on his house.

Bottom line is that some sucker may agree to it but don't let it be you.

Thanks for the "best answer"!

Good luck.

Walter Burns answered:

The answer depends on how much you are putting down as a down payment and what the property taxes are for the house. Do you know this information?

If you have a specific address of a property you are interested in, please let me know and I can look up the taxes.

Also, if you are looking to calculate monthly payments, please feel free to check out this site. They have various mortgage calculators based upon whatever kind of loan you are thinking about.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

All the best in your home search,
